The camera is, again, the worst I have ever seen in a video game. Its so bad you don't even see the enemies most of the time! I mean how can you fight a boss when the camera doesn't even let you see it? You have to use a mini-map to find the enemies! I swear to God i'm not joking! And then, wait for it... you actually have platforming sections where you cant even see where to jump to! Seriously! You fight only five or six types of enemies the whole game! Its waves after waves of fighting the same enemies, using the same methods, over and over again! You have four characters but other than one that is ok and which you'll use for most of the time, the other three are useless! They're either too slow, too weak or too bland to even care! In fact the whole game is bland! The music is sickening, the story is almost non existent and most of the missions you don't even know what to do or where to go, because its all hallways that look the same! You'll be stuck, trying to find where to go, after you defeated all the enemies, going around feeling stupid, until you give up and find an online guide! There is not one redeemable thing about this mess! The checkpoints are long, you cant save the game sometimes for 45 minutes or more, if you die you go back to the beginning of the level! I truly hate this game and I beg you, even if you see it cheap and think, as I did: Well it cant be that bad, right?
Oh yeah, it really is that bad! Stay away!
EDIT: I did finish the game! It did not beat me! But oh God!!! Really, stay away, far, far away!
A disappointing point would have to be the combat system. Though moves are again beautifully and gracefully produced, smooth and pretty life like with no jumping or glitching, there seems to be no system. A system that rivals that of maybe Devil May Cry 1 + 3 would push this game up to 5 stars easily. Unfortunately you end up repeating the same combo over and over, though this can be changed with a quick flick of the analog stick either forwards or to the side.
This game is challenging, make no mistake and very addictive. There is plenty that goes on in the world of Genji to keep you occupied. Enemies do respawn at many points throughout levels.
Though it is a hack n slash game there are times where tactics have to be implemented, down to the best character to do the job, and in particular inflicting damage on the stronger oppponents like the juggernauts. There are many different pickups and the character enhancing system is pretty good. However you can only increase the damage done by the weapons and as far as I can see can't get new moves.
I would say that this game is well worth a go, maybe it's a better idea to rent it first as there are a fair few gamers out there who wouldn't like the hack n slash gameplay. Yes it does sometimes seem like a button mashing exercise but there are finer points which can be enjoyed by the most cynical of gamers.
Give it a go!
The next 2 characters fight styles are not good. The next guy is slow with powerful attacks, and the girl has a really inaccurate weapon she throws and grabs mobs.
I gave up after the 3 meet. There is not enough information about where to go sometimes and even though you can switch between characters on the fly, you HAVE to use specific characters for certain things.... so i spent ages trying to hit something with the girl's inaccurate weapon... i did not enjoy this.
Sorry, but the game is not good. Cut scenes are FANTASTIC cgi, and the sound track and fight system are good, but nothing else compelling me to play.
