Otherwise, this is a pretty engrossing game with awesome graphics music and action. Just don't expect to finish it the same year you got it.

The graphics are superb, the backrounds, enemies, Ryu, and heck even the menus look crisp and clean. It's surprisingly easy to follow Ryu around the game as he jumps off walls, rolls past enemies, and preforms amazing combos.
The story is easy to follow, and throws in enough twists too keep you woondering what, or who you will be facing next.
There is also a surprising amount of weapons and costumes to unlock, although costumes are only unlocked for beating the game on various difficuties. You start off with a sword, and before to long you have nunchuckes, the controls are all the same, just different moves which makes the game ever entertaining. Fast track a chapter or two, and you have a lunar staff, wooden sword, and even the possiblity to duel weild! What also makes it interesting are the ability scrolls you can find. Anything ranging from being protected by fireballs, to throwing fireballs, now add water and other elements, and the possibilites for destruction are endless.
For those new to this series, be warned. Even on hero mode, when it automatically blocks when health reaches a certain point, the enemies are ruthless. I reccomend playing the game to chapter 3, then completely restarting over again. This way, your not to far into the campaign, and upon playing for a second time, you remember the important controls that are thrown at you, and it makes it all much more enjoyable.
I give the game an 8 out of 10.
The only cons would be the lack of imstructions given, even with the manual the whole Karma system and various items are not fully explained. At some points camera angles will be terrible resulting in a death here and there, but nothing so bad as to totally ruin the game.
If you have ever felt like running across walls, backflipping off enemies and throwing ninja starts at them, then this is the game for you.
