I don't know if it was like this for its original release, but this game is horribly bugged. Did no one play test this? Load times that put the psx to shame. Awkward collision. Awkward controls. Weird graphical glitches. I once even had it freeze for no damn reason. It's quite sad since the story and voice acting are pretty good. It'd be a great evening or two of play if you didn't spend half your time staring at a clock on a black screen.
