I am surprised no one has posted about this game.

I started playing it a couple of weeks ago. I'm not as far as I'd hope due to being so busy. But, so far, it's pretty good. It's a mix of Tomb Raider and Prince of Persia. The acrobatics are fun, if you can get the hang of it. You're actually rated at the end of each level on your acrobatic skills, kill and finish time.
It's so 1970's. The music is awesome. And you feel like you're watching a Grindhouse type movie.
I like Elisha Dushku (the voice of the main character Rubi) but she sounded so robotic in this. And, the death scenes are, well non existent. You die the same way every time. No screaming, just a horrible rag doll effect.

Well, let me know what yall think of it.

Yes, there is A LOT of jumping. And every time she jumps the camera slows it down. I thought i would get annoyed by that after a while, but it's actually ok.
She does make a cool character. I'm trying to do a cos of it for my next convention.

i think that game is very unique and super Tarantino type stylish, great pick when you want some fast paced action. I agree the main character is cool too, worth cosplaying

I got this game for xmas after waiting for a year for it to come out and its amazing! The game play is different and unique and really cool! And the story is good too! Although the game itself has the bad 70's cheesy action flick feel to it, with a Tarantino style twist! But that just makes it even better!

I think this would make a great movie too! But ONLY if Tarantino or Rodriguez make it! And Eliza plays Rubi!

My company did work for this game so I was a huge fan! I wanted to do the costume, but there are a TON of custom pieces. However, if you have an H&M in your area they have a great starter jacket for the costume--it was a little pricey at ~$40 or so.
Nothing is certain until your dead and then I'm sure God negotiates.
