Shadow is a good character. For an anthromorphic ultimate life form, he's the most real. And yeah, load times being long don't bother me. Long load times for ONE LINE OF DIALOGUE bothers me. That is definately an issue but I didn't touch on it because it only happens in Town. So needless to say, I only did the required town missions. As for glitches, all games will have them. And fortunately for me I guess, I never had one that affected my gameplay. Aside from cheap deaths where you jump and the camera goes "HEY IM GONNA FLIP NOW =3". I know I took it a little easy on the game, but I stand by that score.
