  • Summary: Jumpers, people with a genetic anomaly that enables them to teleport themselves instantaneously to anywhere on the globe, have existed for centuries. An age-old battle rages between the Jumpers and the Paladins, a clandestine organization set on eliminating them from the planet.

Jump Ability - Use your teleportation skills to "Jump" within hand-to-hand combat range of an enemy to start dishing out devastating blows. Combos - Exciting and intense layered combo fighting system. Finishing Moves - Instantly teleport enemies to exotic perilous locations to finish them. Enemy classes - Deeply ranked hierarchy of Paladin enemy types. Exotic Locales - 5 combat arenas set all around the world – Colosseum, Griffin's Desert Lair, Nepal, Tokyo Streets and Experimental Lab Facility.

    This is the epitomy of a movie tie-in hack job. Low production values, monotonous gameplay, and lackluster visuals make this a story you can jump past.
  2. The storyline is completely uninteresting and suffers from pacing issues, every last battle feels identical - and that includes the lame boss encounters - and combat is all about jamming on the same buttons.
  3. A boring, unrefined, too-short brawler that you'll forget the second you eject the disc. We've already gone blank; what were we talking about?

    All quite cool, but the camera is very lousy, graphics is not that good. The ability to "jump" is pretty cool, saving the need of walking. Although when picking the place to "jump" camera gets a bit out of hand. Expand

    This is one of the most incompetent and worst action titles ever released for the PS2, thanks to its boring storyline and monotonous gameplay design. It gets boring fast and never gets any good. It just continuously falls flat on its face which is disappointing because it had such great potential to be had. Too bad it was completely wasted in this forgettable bargain bin title. Do not buy it, let it rot in the bargain bin. Expand

    The story line is a total blowout, and the jumping ability is not what it lives up to. I mean if the main focus of the game is on teleportation then it should be fun not repetitive. Expand
