About me :
Pro Good storyline and graphics, and it's fun besides!
Cons Spotty hit detection, negligible controls
Difficulty & Complexity

"Surprisingly Good"

I've heard nothing but misery about this game from a great many reviewers. Seems like the pros just can't stomach this game. They complain about control issues, about the graphics, about the storyline. One reviewer said "If this game had ANY honor, it'd kill itself."

I don't see the problem here. I played this game recently and found it good in most respects. Good storyline, good controls, (with the possible exception of hit detection, which can be spotty when it feels like it.) and pretty decent graphics make this a fairly good title.

Besides all that, I enjoyed it. I enjoyed running around in samurai pajamas or a ninja outfit, slicing people up with a honking big sword.... I enjoyed learning the duplicities in the plotline. I enjoyed the surprisingly authentic graphics. I just patently enjoyed this title. Being a ninja in search of an emperor's stolen gold shipment or a samurai in search of honor can be fun, and this game proves it!

Go get your hands on a copy of it if you're looking for a game that plays like Resident Evil Anyone but with blades instead of guns. Or if you're looking for an involving role-playing game that allows you to be the samurai you know you've always wanted to be.
