They looked like strong hands.
Well, the first that pops out to me is this a difficult game. I'm only midway through chapter 1, but if you aren't used to playing games like this, it'll have a steep learning curve. Lots of small things you need to have a good understanding of to build a strong character. It's also difficult as far as gameplay goes. There isn't too much to defend yourself with, at least not yet. You'll need to be a patient person, both with learning the large amount of information it has, as well as knowing you're going to die. A lot.

From what I've heard, there will be some explicit sex scenes eventually (I'm just hoping the wifey isn't around when I hit those parts). I'm someone who likes a challenge, so I'm enjoying the combat so far. I've died quite a few times, and I'm thinking it's only going to get worse. Amazing graphics. The characters themselves are well-rendered and it has beautiful environments. The voice acting has been superb so far, and I think I've only seen an issue once or twice where the voice acting doesn't line up with the face movements.
If you don't mind a steep learning curve and challenging game, I would absolutely recommend it. I'd say it's worth 60 bucks...
If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
maybe you would never have to hurt again...
