    This game was mad fun. If they would have kept this series going I think it could have gotten a huge following. Just this one alone was a fun great game that I still play today.

  1. You've got a case here of several awesome features balanced against some utterly frustrating ideas. [July 2005, p.119]

    The simplistic visuals aren’t to the level of a 2005 release, the limited animation and restrictive camera angles diminish the fun associated with the combat engine, and it’s not a particularly violent game despite its subject material.
  3. The biggest problem is that it all just gets kind of boring, which is rather criminal for a game that's about heated, bloody battles. [Aug 2005, p.83]
