    The first 5 minutes were really enjoyable, but that was about it. I spent the whole time thinking 'ohh they nearly got it right, nearly' - a classic missed opportunity.

    This game is admittedly an enjoyable game but it achieves this by ripping off games like God of War and Devil May Cry, graphically it's good but not one of the ps2's better looking titles, the sound is good and voice acting is passable, the story is really boring though, and it has some good extras to unlock, the controls are a straight rip off of God of War as is the combat and the cameraThis game is admittedly an enjoyable game but it achieves this by ripping off games like God of War and Devil May Cry, graphically it's good but not one of the ps2's better looking titles, the sound is good and voice acting is passable, the story is really boring though, and it has some good extras to unlock, the controls are a straight rip off of God of War as is the combat and the camera is fixed just like God of Wars, it borrows features from Devil May Cry also like its sound effects and the shotgun,the only unique thing about this game are the motorcycle levels, the problem with this game is that it is HIGHLY repetitive beat a fighting level and you get a motorcycle level, and some times it will be the same level in reverse, this is a game I wouldn't really recommend unless your looking for more God of War and you don't want to play through those games again, but it would be more fun to play through those again than to play this.

    Bursting with superhero energy and verve, and makes up for what it lacks in inspiration with water-tight execution. [Feb 2007, p.58]

    The on-foot sections provide passable, brain-numbing fun and fighting fans will enjoy collecting new combos and going up against familiar end-of-level bosses. But if you're expecting anything new or intellectually stimulating you're in for a bumpy ride. [Mar 2007, p.115]
  3. There's certainly plenty of action here, but with dull, monotonous settings and boring sound design, it's easy to slump into tedium, bashing away at enemies simply because they are there.
