There's not a lot of depth to the fighting mechanics beyond the Advent Gauge and a combo cancel button and even less in the beat-em-up sections. If you're a season fighting game player you might have to kick the difficulty up to Hard to get any sort of challenge from the AI.
If you're a fan of Kamen Rider this could keep you busy for a week and a half or so trying to unlock all the characters and cards, but a casual player might get tired of both Mirror Mode and the unusually short Arcade mode in a hurry.
Okay, the television show is awesome. I love shows like that because I grew up watching shows like that. So when I heard there was a Kamen Rider Dragon Knight video game, I was very excited.
Then Reality set in...
This game has all of the basics of the television show, but seriously lacks innovation. The focal point of the show is becoming Dragon Knight and fighting monsters in mirror world. Instead of making the game a free roam adventure game, it feels like the designers just didn't want to finish the game.
Not to mention there is a versus mode. I was so disappointed in this mode that I couldn't even play it after about 10 minutes. There are so few characters that you can barely be satisfied with the one you choose. But when you are actually in the fight mode... the game resembles...
Naruto: Clash of Ninja Revolution 3 !!!!!
The mode called "Mirror World" is nothing more than a page of icons that you choose from. HOW BORING!!!!! I mean, I thought those games died in the 90's.
And another thing is all of the game difficulties are the same. Easy is the hardest difficulty in the game (especially when you get to section 2 in Mirror World).
I was really looking forward to this game and in the end I was deeply disappointed in it. I really hope the next game of Kamen Rider Dragon Knight can cover this game the way it is supposed to be covered.
