The game is not perfect in any way, its your same old hack and slash, but thats not a bad thing. It does exactly what a hack and slash needs to do to be entertaining.
The flaws come into play with the horrible camera, and the horrendous button sequences. The camera is tolerable in most cases, but the epic moment you should have gotten out of the cut scene/button sequence parts of the boss battles really ruin the entire boss fight.
There are some glitches causing you to get stuck, or horrible fights with ledges that you can fall off (which happens too easy on one boss fight...) but nothing horrendous enough that i'd stop playing, just had to cuss a couple times and get back to it. And the auto-save feature helps make these glitches tolerable because you don't lose hardly any time the 2-3 times you might get stuck.
Overall I gave this game an 8 (in all reality i would have given it a 7.5, but round up i suppose) because it is a good hack and slash with a cool twist. The ability to use and upgrade the witches magic was a nice addition. The story is compelling, and who doesn't love half naked witch babes? I really wish they would have worked on it a little bit longer to fix the bugs, but its still pretty good, and at least worth a rent in my own opinion.
Quite honestly this game was terrible in the game playing design. Often enough you would be falling off the edge by a fire ball or you get a game over to easily because your witch partner is to stupid to run away when you are Breaken apart......However! The story is what really kept me going all the way. The fact that they used the Old Witch trials in the tale and the backround followed by it was superb. I was struggling so much to see what would happend next. Its a very great story-line and once i got past the many quirks in the game's Design. I was glad i was able to finish it with a sense of Accomplishment. I do advise however if you do not have the patience and are likely to "Rage-quit". This will not be a game for you. I was kind of Mad however you did not get new weapons.....Overall This was interesting and very challenging.
