I did beat the game with a help guide I found on-line. Let me tell you it is so worth it. The ending is awesome! But it's too short a game to make it worth buying. Rent it again and get that ending...you'll be glad you did! We are in the process of getting another photoshop program, so while I can say how long it will be, I hope it isn't too long as well!
Well what sold me was the art design, and general feel of the game. It's so unique and original that I just couldn't resist it. So I bought it and was finished in a couple of hours, thats why I recommend the rent. There is a lot of stuff that adds to the replay value as far as mini-games, but nothing so special that justifies a spenditure of $40 or more. But I would reccomend that everyone give it a try as it is a wonderful story, with great character design, and a beautiful (yet somewhat repetitive) score.
Yeah I loved everything about it. and what suprised me is that I took it for a complicated game where I had to find a bunch of little things on the side (like God Of War which is awesome too BTW)but it was really simple and I liked that about it.
