Well I finally was able to pop the disk in today and play the first 30 minutes of the game. What a beginning! I will not give anything away, but GearBox does it again with a great start to the game that sucks you in immediately. If anyone has ever played the past BIA games, then you will know that the game usually starts at the end of the story, and then it moves back 3 or four days.
Characterization looks A+, dialogue to me looks just a tad off. Nothing to annoying but it to me looks like there is some delay. The landscape is stunning, and it looks to be maxing out the Xbox's graphic card. Just stunning.
Looking forward to getting into the meat of the game, and I will post regular updates.
