iv been waiting a while for this game and i knew it'd be different, but this is like the resident evil umbrella chronicles....i expected a first person shooter for resident evil but with puzzle element intact....instead we got house of the dead resident evil style.....similar for this expected a first person adventure game....not a walk along hack and slash!

despite this it is still incredibly fun and i found that with the focal point feature the hits are very precise and i think they finally nailed it giving us a good wii sword game at last!

red steel and samurai warriors katana were huge let downs, but this ones pretty darn fun.

story line reminds me of dragon quest 8 in its unoriginality. i found this games fun actually came from its sword action.

and heres the downside.....its freaking short as heck. it honestly took me less then 2 days to beat this game, and that was what let me down severely.

overall id say rent this game,wouldant entirely advise buying it.

Square shafts Nintendo again

Since 1997 when square released Final Fantasy 7 on the Playstation instead of the N64, square has been treating Nintendo as a second rate company. This is by no means a bad game but it doesn't compare to the sweet games they put on the other systems. DQS has great voice acting and a decent plot. Look else where if you would like a good a deep RPG.
The play control is awful. Why would they not use the nun chuck. Instead you have to use the D-Pad on the wii remote. It become uncomfortable to hold it down to long. I didn't find the sensor to read my swings very accurately. I hope that Square will show Nintendo more love in the future.

I have to say, I thought a long time about this game before clicking rent it, but I should have click sooner because this game is AWSOME!!!!!111
The wiimote moves are great but can be hard at some times and the shield brakes because they cant last forever. but this game is still AWSOME.

But they NEVER SHUTUP!!!! One person talks then the other person talks about there problems and talks and talks and talks and so on...
so if you want to read and be board to death but have fun when the talking is over GET THIS GAME
