The Good This game is pretty and sounds great. Great looking backgrounds really nice character models.
The Bad This game is slooooow. I compare this game to Ninety Nine Nights on the XBOX360 which is both pretty and wicked fast. Genji sets the stage with the beautiful burning home / dojo and then sounds of the flames and wood crackling just immerse you into the story. But then you start moving your character and you realize the right analog stick does not control the camera (fatal flaw #1). Once you get past that, you then realize that the character feels extremely sluggish (fatal flaw #2). The PS3 is a very powerful system, but you would never know it if you only played this game. I hope they do a better job on the next go 'round.
this game starts out fun, but ends up being one of those games thats to hard to be fun...
the battle system is interesting; you switch between 4 characters by pressing one of the directional keys in game (one i used for fighting, one for breaking walls and obstacles, one for getting across gaps and for things that require a long range, and i never really found a use for the fourth character...).
the story line was good, the graphics were amazing... but it's ps3, so it better be amazing.
Saw some bad reviews and can't imagine why. The graphics are so good it is prettier than real life. The game play is smooth and exciting. Definatly worth checking out. I take a few points off because it's not as complete feature wise -- and I thought Ninja Gaiden Sigma had better player and camera control
