I just wanted to say about Genji........you didn't mention this game's biggest  problem........it's entirely too short.

This is a game that can be finished in 5-8 hours.

I love the beautifull lush enviroments and battle system of this game, everything is perfect about it........but man...the short length.

I only paid 10 bucks for this game, considering it's length, it's the right price.

In my opinion you can't knock a game for its length.  I think 8 hours is plenty of gameplay.  Some people will argue that fact and thats fine.  I personally don't have tons of extra time to play games anymore so a shorter game is very appealing to me.  If a game boasts having more than 30 hours of gameplay I usually won't buy it.

[/QUOTE] I agree. At a certain point, some games just seem to be the same thing over and over. It is better to end them well, then just letting them drag on.

I usually agree with this idea. Most games that people say are too short, like the Devil May Cry series or RPG's, it's just people with too much time on their hands.

But honestly, Genji IS too short. You only get 3 worlds, and the 3rd/final level is a remix&rehash of the first.

Considering Genji is a beat-em-up with RPG, exploration, and adventure aspect, that sort of demands that it should be in the 10-20 hour range.

Play it and you'll see what I mean.
