5.0 out of 5 stars Wow., December 9, 2010
Owned it for about 2 years now. Taken it up mountains, dropped it off cliffs, recorded hours upon hours of video, taken thousands of pictures, and she still works like new. I'm still amazed at this camera.

Quality is great, the automatic settings are intelligent and work well, but it's nice to have the manual settings to boot. You can take pictures in low light now! Even man made low light can come out crisp and clear if you mess with the setting enough. Sunrises and sunsets turn out beautiful!

It's durable. I literally dropped this thing onto a rock from 4 feet. I was expecting it to be toast, but the only damage was a tiny dent on the casing. That was about a year back, and everything still works like new. Besides random mishaps it's shot in single digit temperatures, been jostled up mountains in a backpack, been up trees, held out the car window at high speeds, and pretty much mistreated. But it still works like new!

The controls are fairly easy to learn (don't really need the manual) I had 'em figured out in a couple hours of messing with it. They make sense. I use the panorama feature like crazy, works seamlessly if you do it right... turns out beautiful.

The only, ONLY thing I can complain about is: I wish the thing had a longer self timer. 10 seconds sometimes ain't enough time.

Overall, excellent camera, couldn't be happier, quality, design, everything's well thought out. Cheers to Sony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected!, December 9, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
First off, I'll list system req's, since I don't see them posted in the item description (might want to change that, Amazon, it's important).

OS: Windows XP SP3, Windows Vista SP2. Windows 7.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 5200+
Memory: 2GB ram
HD Space (don't freak): 23.8 GB + 1 GB swap file.
Video Card: 3D Hardware Accelerator Card Required - 100% DirectX 9.0c compatible 256MB Video Memory with Shader 3.0 support.
I've got a beefy system, above requirements, and the game was just a tad twitchy here and there (not to the point of annoyance, generally during an autosave, no biggy).

Graphics: The first thing I noticed, the graphics are crazy good and pleasing to the eye. Character design was also a nice touch, from costumes to facial hair. Environments are beautifully designed to boot.

Gameplay: Controls were well thought out, pretty standard. Combos worked nicely as well. Things make sense. The environments are massive, explorable, and fairly destructible (good stress relief). Enemies are fun to mess with (don't miss the chance to electrocute a jawa) and are fairly intelligent as far as ducking behind cover and whatnot, though some melee enemies seem slightly suicidal (you just don't attack a jedi with a stick). Large enemies like Rancors and AT AT's are fun to destroy, as they make it sort of cinematic, with you having to press certain buttons as they come up on the screen. It sounds annoying (and is in a lot of other games) but they managed to pull it off in this one. Upgrades are fun, and so are the ways they let you customize your character (costumes, lightsaber color, etc.). Even after you go through the storyline once, you'll want to do it again (and are able to) with all the upgrades you've accumulated from the first go around.

Story: The storyline, I think, is what makes this release so much different than every other Star Wars game. You actually start out as a Sith, and eventually end up becoming a (sort of) Jedi. This may turn some people off who don't want to throw wookies off cliffs or strangle the rebel alliance (it's just a game after all). I, however, thought it was a nice twist and made things interesting. If you're looking for a chance to decide your destiny and "Turn to the Dark Side", you won't find it in this game. There's only one story, but it's a cool one, so it's all good.

Content: Besides the obvious violence.... and a scary jedi chick that looks uncomfortably related to Darth Maul, only with 60% less clothing, the game is quite acceptable. No bad language, that I noticed.

Overall, I was impressed. The game leaves you feeling epic, powerful, and slightly evil. Good stress relief. Glad I got it. Good game. Made me want to play #2.
