    The game is stupidly, punishingly difficult. And its save "system," pardon my Latin, blows syphilitic goats. [Jan 2004, p.108]
  2. Repetitive, basic, and banal.

    At certain points, you simply feel total frustration - you just wanna stop playing sometimes. Of course, you're better off never starting at all. [Dec 2003, p.162]

    This game is the neatest thing since Medieval. Spectacular graphics & motion; complex, satisfying fight controls; cool challenges.
