Cheap shi.....

Im a Samuel L Jackson fan, I enjoy chinese films, anime doesn't bother me, and I enjoy playing hank n slashes.... but jeeze. This game is not enjoyable to play. Its what I black man would want his history to be if he were part chinese, I liked the start, its funny and full of action. I play a couple levels and then im done. Here's my 3 catagories so you get why I say that.

Good: It has a lot of humor. Though you will hate it if you don't like Samuel L Jackson.

Bad: The game play isn't that exiting, new techniques are boring, and its hard to tell what "you have." Your helth grows red and you get a orb that follows you but its hard to pay attention to when you are in battle.

Ugly: The general story and outlook. You are in a chinese setting and storyline but its the outlook of a black man. Its put together cheap, is boring, and is not worthy of a good hack n slash rating.

Good story fund graphics...repetative game play

I wanted to give this an 8 but couldn't. The game play just did this game in. It really got boring. I only finished the game to see the ending. There was an easier way to see the end...but still the well-executed comic style graphics redeem a bit of the flaws.

Reversed camera movement

Be warned that the camera movement (r stick) for this game is inverted. Meaning when you want to look left you have to move the stick right. And there's no way to change it. This was a gamebreaker for me as I wasn't willing to go against all my instincts from every other x-box game I've played. Game looked like it might be fun otherwise, so go for it if this isn't an issue for you. For me it was instant fail.
