Jul 23, 2011NOTE: This is a PC game intended to be played using a Controller. (Game Pad)
Reviewers need to stop giving this game a low rating simply because they can't follow directions to use a Game Pad. This game is intended to be played using a Game controller which can be purchased for $15 bucks almost anyplace. This is a great hack and slash side scrolling game and the closet you can get to being in an action thrash and slash cartoon.

So pick your style and have fun!
