This has become my favourite game of all time, and I play a lot of games. If you love gaming, you owe it to yourself to at least try this. Yes, the game is punishingly difficult, but you can always look up the wiki if it gets overwhelming (you'll be glad you didn't, though) and the rewards are immense. The wonder, awe and exhiliration you will experience if you can make it all the way through the game's 60+ hours are worth it. Prepare to die...and prepare to be consumed by this game.
