|How many stars would you give it?|
While Sin & Punishment: Star Successor hasn't lit up the sky with awesome sales, I think for a first-time retail venture in America with the franchise, the game-play data is encouraging. S&P:SS definitely isn't one of Nintendo's better known franchises, and to see game-play data appear just 100 days after S&P:SS released is pretty impressive, when comparing it to certain third party games.
I don't own S&P:SS, but I think I remember reading the game takes between 4-5 hours to complete on a single play-through; if that is the case, the data reported is showing that Wii owners are playing the game at least twice.
