Conclusion: Eventually culminating in clearing out an abandoned templar stronghold, the two main characters begin forging their plans for what was obviously meant to be a segway into a sequel. No big boss battle, no revelations about the curse that ails you and no real closure to anything story related.
Conclusion: As far as the achievements go this game is a cake walk, I have put in around 20 hours play and I only have my nightmare playthrough to finish for game completion so if you can look past the tedious cutscenes and frustrating combat system then it may well end up as a good weekend rental for the more...

Pros: + Combat can be satisfying, + Co-op is fun, + The leveling system

Pros: Esteban - both as an AI teammate and co-op choice, Supernatural elements are a nice touch, Yeah, now I'm starting to struggle here!
