FEELING WHILE PLAYING: Nothing better than sliding through a group of enemies and slicing them all in half. Jumping up and smashing down has never felt so good before, either. A great beginning option, he has enough shield, armor and health to let you learn the game without worrying so much about face planting. And really, bring your sword to every fight because the backstabs are amazing.
