ok, so i didn't know if i should start a new thread or not for a review of this...
anyway, got the game (despite the confused looks of just about every store clerk, and a mistakenly purchased king arthur)
it is nifty. looks great. the controls are still taking a bit to get used to. the movement is a no-brainer, A to move, B to turn around, chose the path when you get to a fork.
for fighting you pull R and go into FPS type play (no movement though). Here is where the buttons get more active. R for combat. L for scanning (since the enemies are invisible) B to select enemies, the pad to move through them, and the analoge stick for free aim. Enemies have an 'insta-kill' place that if you shoot they go poof.
reloading is an animation, so you can't do anything. while realistic (sorta) did get me killed at least twice.
when you die as one of the personalities it leaves a bag, brown paper bag and a tape outline. one of the personalities is 'the cleaner' he is the one who picks up the 'dead' ones and brings them back to harmon. if he dies, you all die, which i didn't realize at first (i wanted to be the cleaner...)
so you got the cleaner, the revolver guy, sniper girl, two pistol kid, ninja star dude, thug and dude i didn't play yet.
the thing with blood basically being a power-up/XP device was confusing at first. i think i get it. basically you get blood based on how you kill the bady (like by making him bleed) and then you can use it for special abilities, or make serums which can increas abilities of personalities.
if you need a certain personality in a certain place the map tells you. this is rad.
there are weird helper guys who speak funny, a robot maid thing that you save your game with, the ghost of your first kill who follows you around and of course invisible bad guys who laugh like the joker. so far, so good.
