DONT BUY THE EU VERSION OF THIS GAME!
This game was one of the first reasons i wanted a PSP because im probably one of only a few people that was a fan of Lightning Swords of Death before this game was out. LSOD is the metal band used on the games website, all trailers, and referenced in all reviews. When i eventually got the game i was extremely pissed to find my copy only had a generic orchestral soundtrack. I searched for days trying to find why my copy didnt have the metal soundtrack advertised everywhere and it took an email to Tecmo to find out only the EU version didnt have it. Luckily PSP games are region free because i will be selling my EU copy as soon as possible and replacing it with a US version. As a metal fan the soundtrack was the main selling point of the game for me as without it i can see the gameplay becoming repetitive and boring, so even with the LSOD soundtrack i would only give the game 4 stars. I would have liked more effort to have gone into the games detail, instead of putting all the good graphics into the intro video, because to be honest they are pretty bad.
