I played it for a very short time, so I admit I probably didn't get to any really good parts. I've heard nothing but good things about it all but it just does stuff that I don't really like.
My beefs were:
I hated how the guy controls. I was looking through the options for anything that would help, but I still just hated moving him around.
I couldn't read the text on the screen. It was so tiny. Not having any previous experience with these games made it worse since I didn't know what any treasures were instinctively.
My screen was cluttered with bullshit telling me where to go and what to do. I didn't like having to use his spidey sense or a radar to find things. I turned all this off but then the game just became unplayable since no one actually gives good directions.
