    Underrated gem. While nothing spectacular, presents a fun arcade-style hack n' slash experience in the style of devil may cry and dynasty/samurai warriors and doesn't take itself too seriously. Because of the arcade like style the game has plenty of content and doesn't have to be cleared all at once, infact you shouldn't just to spare you hands and controller. There isUnderrated gem.

There is enough depth and differences in the gameplay that doesn't make it too repetitive. A shame this game is so underrated and people fail to appreciate it as it is. And it is fairly easy to find on sale cheap nowadays. Pick it up before it is too late. Expand

    very bad game. i'd better playing dynasty warriors. too simple, lack of improvement. the publisher should thinking twice how to satisfy the fans not to disapoint them. the game is not worth enough too play.

  1. This isn't just a clone of Koei's slash-'em-ups, but a game that actually improves upon them in several ways. [Oct 2005, p.68]
  2. Unfortunately, it feels a bit dull after performing your 50th 200-hit combo. [Nov 2005, p.146]
  3. Devil Kings' mailed-in gameplay is a classic example of what developers should avoid at all costs in the future. [Nov 2005, p.117]
