No, you're not hallucinating. That is actual gameplay.
Graphics: 5/5 - Going out on a limb with this 'perfect' score, but have you seen this game? Simply take a look at the picture above. Plenty more where that came from.

The fast-paced action is very addicting to say the least, nothing like slicing a guy's head off, heh.
THE GOOD: ~ The graphics. ~ The Improved gameplay. ~ Improved AI of enemies. ~ New weapons and missions. ~ New playable character with Rachel. ~ New bosses and unlockable mission mode.
THE BAD: ~ Reuses old Xbox Cutscenes.
