  1. It's got some solid if a little frustrating gameplay, a great new way to block and counterattack, and solid graphics to back it all up.
  2. 60
    A fun and fluid representation of the best moments of the film. It isn't the deepest or most visually dazzling game, but it feels right. It's what a "Crouching Tiger" game should be.
  3. Unlike the movie, which was lush and vibrant from beginning to end, this looks worse than a '70s kung fu movie dubbed off broadcast television. [Oct 2003, p.117]
  4. 50
    While not reaching the absolute moronic bliss of the 8-Bit and 16-Bit era movie cash-ins, this does feel like a trek back to the good old days of movie-based video games.
  5. Between the hostile camera system (which routinely obscures enemies), the dull pacing of the levels, and the repetitive combat, it loses something big. [Dec 2003, p.86]
  6. I had to force myself to plod forward, as I couldn’t withstand the overuse of a combat system that’s simplistic and lacks any really engrossing gameplay.
  7. 16
    What could have been an exciting and graceful fighting system instead feels dull and stilted. [Nov 2003, p.51]
