  1. A solid beat-‘em-up built into a liquid loose foundation of repetition and pointless progression. If you simply must own everything McFarlane branded then go ahead and get it. I can’t stop you.
  2. Dull, depressing, and monotonous. Although the combat system is reasonably interesting, the game doesn't come close to making the most of it.
  3. You know something's wrong when the most interesting character is the nerdy scientist with knee-high socks. [Sept 2004, p.26]

    While all of this good on paper, the game fails miserably when it comes to execution. Simply put, Evil Prophecy just isn't any fun.
  5. The completely screwed-up camera, noticeable lack of sound effects, and gameplay bugs make it obvious no one working on this game cared about it - why should you? [Sept 2004, p.104]
  6. The game is a total disaster, with no redeeming qualities. Konami has taken an interesting license and thrown away all potential.
  7. There is no reason to buy or rent this tragic mess of code, and while it’s not the end of the world, it’s damn close. Evil indeed.

    Sure the game has faults and a fair bit of them, but if you can live with them, it is a decent game.

The best things in the game is probably the different elemental attacks, the ability to switch between characters fast and cool looking bosses. The game does not look nice but ok for a game from 2004. I found myself enjoying the game by myself and with a friend. If you like beat-em-up games and can ignore the fact that it is getting old, you can have a good time with McFarlane`s Evil Prophecy. Expand
