Really Bad

Fun for a little bit.

It started out fun but really over repetitive game play soured it for me. The first few levels are fun but I came to a point where the game just kept throwing the same bad guys to fight over and over again. They are easy to defeat but when an endurance fight takes priority over level design it just grinded the game to a halt for me. If you like the show and want to play the game give it a shot but its definitely not a game I'd buy.

Returned After One Playing

I have this a 6 because it is innovative and unique, but I found it a little boring and frustrating. I played the recent Star Wars/Jedi game and liked that a ton better than this game.
I got this expecting more, but was disappointed.

Cameras kill

This game could've been so much better had they'd done a better job on camera angles. It's maddening, like launch a controller into the wall maddening.

It's so bad it make's simple things like cutting rope next to impossible. Throw that in with the boss battles and it kills the potential of this game.

Graphically it's great, looks almost as good as valkyrie chronicles. The soundtrack is also outstanding especially when battles heat up.

To bad something as simple as the camera angles ruins this game, for an example it's almost dynasty warriors 6 bad, but not quite
