I must admit to being surprised. I know we all have different tastes, but I have long felt that URU was one of the most beautiful games ever made. I've played it LOTS of times and many parts, especially the scenery and the music in the museum, never fail to inspire. Sorry you didn't like it, deleterman. It's still my favorite game ever. (Except perhaps for "Drowned God," but nobody else liked that one.)
If all the people were heroes, there would be no one to watch the parades.
