What were they thinking?... simple as that. i could understand if i only played it a little and stopped, but i took my time and gave the game time to grow on me. it grew but what came from it was mold. the game was a mistake and i always say if you cant create something my 11 year old nephue can create better...than dont create it.

this game is good don't let other people fool you that it is bad, it is just that the fighting is realistic the stances of the characters are those used in Modern day kendo the style is the same too hit your opponent where the sword is not,blocking is only 20 % of defending yourself and timing is everything. This game is not easy but it is disliked for all the wrong reasons however I will have to say the graphics could do with a bit of a improvement.

Well, its not the best game guys......the first couple boss battles are really the meat and potatoes. No reason to switch up your combos just gets you blind sided due to the awkward camera and hack-n-slash style of play.Be as technical as you like....but the game forces you to start mashing the two attack buttons cus its repetitive enemy and slow paced grab then insta kill thing does not do much for the game play.
I say keep it around for the VS mode! its nice to see your friends struggle with the stances then finally start throwing out a good challenge.
One good thing to say about this game is, usually I get soooooo ANGRY when i die quickly in games, like UFC 09 Knockouts urrrr!!!!
but this was fun to be out skilled by a Ronin or w.e. happend to run you through! Have fun dont expect a lot!
p.s. i train in martial arts and everything is right on the money if thats incentive to pick it up!
