Seriously, go buy this game now. I just completed it (coming in at 26 hours), and and its climbed up to be my second favourite game of 2008. Honestly the story, characters, and gameplay all are on par with MGS4 (if a little simpler). Its poor performance is criminal, and is well worthy of GOTY nominations. Its an adventure on scale with friggin' Orcarina of Time. You have GOT to give it a try.
