Wow, I never thought I would enjoy this so much, as before launching it, I was quite sceptical. The combat is tight, very simmilar to LoS, but in 2d (many combos etc.) The game looks very nice. Character models are one of the best (the best?) which I have seen on 3DS.
The demo was linear, but hey, it's a demo. I saw some places, where I could go only after completing certain objectives, so I guess there is some exploring in this game.
I liked platforming section. Jumping on platforms while using a whip? Why not, it was fun.
On the other hand, framerate is quite low, and at the beginning, I thought it would be a deal breaker for me. But after 5 minutes I got used to it.
I'll wait to hear what is the lenght of the game, and if it's decent, then I may be even able to buy it day 1. I really enjoyed the demo.
