Just got the game in the mail. Played some last night with my dad. Initial impressions are…

Wow! Awesome game. We're really enjoying it so far.

I love how enemies come in huge waves. It reminds me of the original Halo in that regard. It's very satisfying mowing down waves of goblins. The action is fast, heated and challenging. The ranger gameplay is just flat out fun. I love picking stuff off with my bow and then going in Aragorn-style and slaying everything. Fun.

And the story. I love how cinematic and story-heavy it is. The cutscenes and the way they expand on the lore is excellent.

It took a minute to get used to split-screen but it works great. I like how each of us has our own secrets to find so exploration is key. And the loot. Man there is tons of it. I wasn't expecting that much loot but it's basically Diablo in that regard. Excellent.

This game is a real treat so far. Very impressed.
