Fun, simple game

This was a satisfying game to play. You get to kill lots of enemies with fun, gory combinations. You can battle multiple enemies at a time seamlessly. You gain xp by killing enemies and as you level you use points to upgrade your character and enable cool finishing moves.

Although the gameplay is satisfying, the game leaves a lot to be desired. It is a lot more like Dynasty Warriors than it is like Skyrim. The plot line is very linear with no choice in which quest to do next. You simply play through the game from beginning to end. It took me about 10 hours. Also there is no looting dead enemies, no gear, and no weapons to choose from. You don't have any sort of inventory. There are only 5 or 6 different types of enemies and you kill those few enemies over and over again. Each one requires a slightly different approach to fight properly.

It's a fun game to play through, especially with a friend or someone online. Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed. I am glad I rented it and played through and I am glad I was able to send it back for a new game. It was fun but I would not want to own this game.
