Everything you said were my exact opinions towards the game. First off the only difference to me was I played it on XBox 360 and the reason I bring this up because as you said the psx2 graphics were something lacking to say the least, I just want you to know it was no different on the 36O. Sure the environment was better looking than some games it cannot compete with Uncharted or Assassian's Creed the cut scenes were awful. The replay level to this game is very small due to the fact that this game gets repetitive and quick. As you stated combos become useless once a mob attacks you, and the lions are anything but annoying. The boss battles weren't overly hard but again as you said annoying at best, Graven (final boss) was the most difficult and that was due to the simple fact that you have too much going on to focus in on one thing. You have to dodge his tentacles all the while avoiding the hot tar and the tar people. I was screaming at my TV before long until I read that I was supposed to wait and let him draw his tentacles back in before cranking the lever and that made it a ton easier. Dare I say this is a cheap ripoff of God of War? Perhaps, they have some similarities but God of War takes the cake hands down. Matter of fact the reason I bought this game was to fulfill my impatience until GoW3 comes out on psx3 (which I have to buy also).
