Ignore the kids giving this a bad rating. Every one of Vanillaware's games has an AMAZING art direction. Very fluid and deep combat mechanics and ton's of replay value.
The graphics in this game are astonishing. A very unique style. The story is nothing spectacular but still interesting. The main thing here is the combat.
Each character feels unique and adds a deep level of replayability. Going online or playing by yourself are both fun as the AI does a good job to support you.
The levels are fun and varied, the enemies are many and the quests you can do on the side add more depth to an already great storyline campaign.
Boss battles are a challenge and unique. This is a game best played with friends but still fun by yourself.
This isn't a game for Call of Dookie fanboys. This is a nod to an older era in gaming and reflects upon past titles such as Streets of Rage, Final Fight, Golden Axe DnD and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games.
There is more than just a beat em up here. There is a leveling mechanic and tons of gear effectively adding an element of role playing and progression.
Simply put, this is a wonderful gem of a game that i recommend to all fans of RPG's and beat em up's. However i don't recommend this title for little kids. Not that some won't enjoy it... but most of them have a less refined taste.

i agree with one comment that it is too much like nes/snes graphics r ok but the subtitles were just too small for me to read and the controls felt limited i chose the wizard but it was like u were side scrolling then this rogue shows up only for u to open locked doors and chests it took me over an hour just to get thru the tutorial because of the small print i was disappointed in it i guess i was expecting it to b like dragon age or diablo i believed the hype and was suckered in to play it. u r limited on what characters to choose from and creating a character is also limited u cant change their apperance hair ect the only thing is changing the color of their clothes i gave it a 5 because the story was decent as was the graphics
