Well, holding LB and RB on startup to delete the cache let me continue playing and, in a three-hour session, I managed to finish the game.
Overall, it was brilliant, but there were enough little niggles at the end to knock it down from 10 to a 9. Chief among these was the final boss encounter.

I’ve put a good few hours into this now. I find that two hours or so is my limit for a single session. I don’t get bored, as such, I just seem to start to finding it very difficult to keep track of things and to kill enemies. A break of half an hour sorts
I didn’t really mean to play this. I wanted to wait until the full game on Friday. I couldn’t help myself, though. Anyway, it’s ace, but I found it very hard indeed and didn’t actually complete the demo before it was time to go out.
