  1. While it looks and sounds good and is a solid-playing game, it is not without a few annoying quirks that pop up at moments when you least need or want them. The addition of being able to play as a villain is a welcome change.
  2. The actual gameplay is unlikely to impress serious gamers and may, to some, the game may be found seriously wanting.
  3. It’s not awful, and is in fact a solid platform game, but it can be annoying, and even worse, pretty boring at times.
  4. Although it does have some neat elements, such as being able to play as the bad guy and several spell elements, it doesn't make up for the lack of texture quality, as well as the shaky framerate and bad camera.
  5. It's always interesting to have the option of being the bad guy, but truly bland gameplay and a relatively short quest sap the fun and make this a rental at best.
  6. Talking of light, there are several periods playing as Rick that you'll be inching forward down rocky tunnels with virtually no illumination to help you and the 3D map that you can cut to when you're feeling lost is worse than useless.
  7. Save your money for something less painful, like a bikini wax or unanaesthetized dental surgery.
