A fun but flawed 3rd person co-op fantasy action game

Summary: Developed by inXile Entertainment and published in May of 2011 by Bethesda Softworks, "Hunted: The Demon's Forge" is a third person single player or co-op action game. Set in a gritty and brutal fantasy world, the story follows two mercenaries (Caddoc, a human male warrior and E'lara, a female elven archer) as they investigate the disappearances of townsfolk after sinister creatures begin to emerge from the underground.
Summary: Hunted: The Demon's Forge buries its rock-solid ideas under a mound of execution blunders. A game's success or failure often rests on the little things. An otherwise ordinary game can soar to great heights by nailing the details; conversely, a smattering of small flaws might cause fine ideas to flounder. Hunted: The Demon's Forge is the latter type of game: conceptually sound, yet clumsy as delivered.
Wanted a great 2 player game but Saving Mechanism ruins experience for us!

Summary: I really wanted this to be a great 2 player game. I keep looking for a two player game that can live up to Baulder's Gate and Champions of Norath. My wife and I were so excited to get this game, and it unfortunately has been a real frustrating experience. It is too dark and hard to see; when you change the gamma setting, it looks washed out.
Summary: Don't listen to anyone who says this game is a one or a five! Hunted is not that bad and it's not that great! It's an above average game in my opinion. Highly entertaining! I have only played as the Huntress. Bad chic right there! It has a fun button mashing, arrow slinging feel when you run into the thick of things; throwing spells and raining arrows. The reasons this does not get a five star rating; one, in my opinion there are no five star games. five star is perfect.
Summary: You have your "burly warrior guy" and your "look-at-my-boobs" female archer; you've got your generic undead/goblin-y/orc-y bad guys; and you've got a storyline and setting that are about as compelling as a five-year-old ordering you to let him stay up another hour. The gameplay itself is fine (although it's heavily dependent on the ol' cover mechanic) and even shows moments of real promise in the way that the two main characters, Caddoc (burly) and E'lara (boobs), play...
This game would have been a lot better if it had a longer game play

Summary: This game would have been a lot better if it had a longer game play. I feel like I beat it really quickly. I know not every game can last forever like Kingdoms of Amular or Skyrim, but still if I buy a game I don't want to completely play through it in 2 to 3 days. Its really disappointing too, because the game was actually enjoyable, but I wouldn't buy it new again or gift it simply due to the very short amount of time it takes to complete.
Summary: I was excited about this game when I saw it...RPG, 2 players offline! That's a perfect start for me. I was dissapointed with the lack of color but also with the lack of character development as well. The only way to really upgrade your character is with whatefer weapon and armor they have. I like mods intrinsic to the character as well...I'm a glutton for upgrades! what can I say (it worked for Neo). It was kind a of drudge of repetition after a few hours.
Summary: So I picked up this game cause it looked like something that would be great for me and hubs to play together. Well while we did enough the type of game it was there were some flaws that we had a hard time getting around. For starters you on normal mood there are some parts that make it feel like you are playing on God mode. Also the camera was so constricted it made things difficult at times.
