well as a player of mp3 i love this game. i'd say it's as good as tp but probably not better. i'm 57% through the game and i played for 21:08hrs. the graphics are very flowing and realistic, better than some xbox360 graphics too! once i beat the game i'll tell you how long it took and what percentage i had. this game is hard though, it gets like 30x harder after each boss fight (by the way, bosses look amazing!!!). i got stuck about 4 times in which it took me somewhat 1 hour to figure it out. i got stuck in where to go, not running out of life. there are 3 more worlds for me to explore also. if you have this game, tell me what you think. if you don't, tell me what you think.
