    This game is almost perfect: the addition of "breaker" system, "death traps", 2 fatalities and 1 Hara Kiri per character and interactive arenas makes fighting more strategic, realistic and fun. Chess and Puzzle kombat modes are nice surprises. The only big mistake of the game is the Konquest Mode. Despite this flaw, the game is GREAT!!!

  1. More exceptional and more stylish than any other game in the series, Deception will provide an endless amount of entertainment.

    A great diversion from the usual fighting template. So while it may not be as complex or responsive as a number of other 3D (or even 2D) fighters out there, it's a hell of a lot of fun (whether you stink at it or not).

    Offers a ton of bloody entertainment, even when going online isn't an option. [Apr 2005, p.131]
