Let me first say: the graphics were ok, the sound effects were ok, and the controls were fairly responsive. What else could be wrong? - Let me tell you!
Although the game specs say story mode, there is none.
When you first start this game, you will most likely try the training mode. This allows you to learn (very simple) moves like how to run and how to jump that have great feel and ease; oh how deceptive this is.
Since I prefer to play against the computer or with a friend, I don't ever play online versions. Unfortunately there was no story mode, and unless you play online, there is no two player mode.
After the tutorial is complete the next and only step is to play a multiplayer battle. This means you will be tossed into an arena with numerous other humans or bots; I chose to play the computer bots.
No matter what the play-mode, there is little more than a bunch of characters running around attacking each other as fast as possible. Although there were some combos available, the gameplay was far to fast to ever execute any or even tell if I had done one. Most of the computer attacks could not be blocked. It was as if the computer bots just pushed random attack buttons as fast as possible.
After a half hour of lightning fast chaos , I could take no more.
I am sending this game back with only two total hours of play.
