So you say you want to be a cybernetic ninja who for some reason wears high heels and has no idea how to block or dodge? Well then mashing X is all you need.
You want to attack the enemies? Mash X.
You want to parry an enemies sword strikes? Stop mashing X then press toward the enemy and mash X.
You want to stop that helicopter from colliding with you? Hold LT and mash X, happily this also works when the game prompts you to rip out the gooey stuff inside your enemies.
Pros - Runs at a buttery smooth 60 fps and looks great while doing it.
You can skip the cut scenes and hurry through the endless dialogue.
Cons - The combat is far too restrictive and way way to dumb down.
Mashing X is all you need to do and is all you really can do considering there is no dodge or quick movement options and you cannot block.
