Gave it a quick shot while waiting for bacon to cook.
Visually, it's very impressive. It's not Uncharted 2/3 or anything but it moves fast and quick, very slick lighting effects, and cool if typical environments (based on the 1st area).
The skill tree looks beefy and the combat is nice and fast. The only concern is when you strike something w/ your sword, such as a barrel or other smashables, there's a weird hiccup or pause in the animation. Looks bad, imho. Hopefully that gets cleaned up.
There are some things w/ presentation as well. When you kill something a GIANT ass XP meter shows up on the bottom of the screen. It's huge and ugly. Also, when in a conversation a weird letterbox shows up and...well that looks ugly too.
All around it looks fun enough to play. Music equals the best of the LoTR. Visually, it's much better than Dragon Ages but it's no Witcher 2.
