Good. Now take everything you know about the 'conventional' wisdom of video games and toss it. Crystal Dynamics and Eidos have shown that if you actually work hard on a video game during its long development time, the results can be exciting, instead of disappointing. The graphics are beautiful, the music sets the mood, the textures are very pretty, and the load time is usually unnoticeable, once inside the game. This is due to Soul Reaver using a streaming routine.
