Fair

Short and Simple review

I'm gonna keep this short and simple. Because a game this disappointing doesn't deserve a detailed review.

You push one button to Melee, One button to shoot and you have 4 slot assigned to L2, O, Triangle and R2 for magic.

After that, you go level to level doing the same thing which RPG'ers will know this as "Grinding". This game is a constant grinding fest! No story, well there's a story, but so forgettable you don't care. Literally just go to a new level which is like a medium sized map and hordes of badies come out and attack you. You fight gaining souls you can later use for new magic abilities.

And that's it. Enjoy the game! No seriously that's the game.

If you're like me, and you're renting this one because you think it will be like heavenly sword, get ready for a massive disappointment. The game is a huge disappointment on so many levels, but I will list a few.

STORYLINE. Oh wait, there isn't one. You touch some globe at the beginning and keep fighting this lion guy. It's difficult to care about any of the characters.

GRAPHICS. Weak! This could have been on the PS2.

GAMEPLAY. Awkward button mashing fighting the same enemies over and over and over...

TROPHIES. Yeah, it has trophies. My question is, who cares? Is anyone really proud of these silly things?

I only got this game for the trophies..after i acquired all 36 i sent it back..easy to understand and fight your way to the top..optional dungeons arent really necessary..the storyline was great though..the comical conversing between the main character and the main boss was funny even as you two fight!..a great rental prospect..the trophies arent that hard to acquire..i did it in 2 weeks and i was done
