Okay, so where do I get started?
First of all, the graphics! The graphics shouldn’t make or break a game, but it’s definitely in its favour if they look rather good. This game does not look good at all. It’s outdated, looks pretty darn ugly, and to top it off, the animations are rather shocking to say the least. Let me explain: When your character turns from one direction to the other, it should be smooth and look pretty good. What it shouldn’t be doing is snapping from one direction and then to the other instantly. There’s not really any in-between animation and you’re just sort of snapping from one direction to the other, and it just does not look good.
Now, let’s get into the real meat of the game, or what should be the meat of the game, and that’s the gameplay. For a hack and slash game you want some nice, satisfying combat to make you feel like the true badass that you’re playing as, slicing up enemies left, right, and centre. This game does not feel like that at all. The combat feels light and is just kind of boring, it’s nothing too interesting and I’m sure in co-op you’re only going to get the chance to tell your buddy the same thing. The game also takes a crack at stealth, and goes for what most games do with stealth, which is as long as the enemy doesn’t see you; you can sneak up on them and crack their neck. Speaking of cracking necks, this games breaking neck animation is kind of ridiculously fast, and the sound effect they use for it is so short and sudden it just takes away even more from the experience.
The story is rather dull and uninteresting, and left me doing the one thing I rarely do in games and that’s skip the cutscenes, because the way it’s all being told just can’t grab my attention, so I’m not even going to waste my time when it comes to the story.
Lastly would be the audio, and more importantly, the music. The sound effects are okay, nothing special and not particularly good, but they serve their purpose. The music in this game is just another one of those things I don’t take too much notice with. The music hasn’t drawn me in at all, and certainly isn’t something I’d necessarily want to listen to again. Also, on a slight sidenote, there was a moment in the game where I was simply walking in a monastery, and there was literally no sound to speak of. It was utterly silent, no footsteps, and no music, it was just completely silent. A little bit of music would have been nice, but alas, there was nothing.
All in all, this is definitely not a game I recommend. I haven’t enjoyed my time with it, the audio is just okay, the gameplay is plain and nothing special, and the story is just uninteresting. Not a game I would recommend spending your money on. There a many other games that are more enjoyable and more worth your time, and money!
