  • Summary: Set in richly detailed 3D environments, each with its own distinct styles and themes, Rau, a fierce warrior, must battle the denizens of the dark world to prevent the invoking of an ancient spell that holds the power to unleash great evil throughout the land. Along with his loyal and trusted spirit guide, Kuzo, a large black bird, Rau embarks on an exhilarating journey that requires a combination of stealth, aggressive-action moves and calculated planning. Kuzo plays a strategic role in the quest with the ability to scout ahead to perches for a better view of looming danger, retrieve items and distract opponents. [SCEA] Expand

  1. It's the most surprising, and visionary, action-adventure game of the summer. [Fall 2002, p.145]
  2. A visceral celebration of action and all that is good about hacking the bejesus out of someone - in style. [August 2002, p.76]
  3. 88
    It's the best beat-'em-up on the system.
  4. Has the story and substance to attract the hardcore and masses alike, and the gameplay to appease both - the mark of a truly great game. [July 2002, p.81]
  5. Dedicating all your time, you can finish the game in about fifteen hours, which includes the completion of all Baumusu’s challenges, unlocking of arenas, and other rewards. This seriously decreases the replay factor.
  6. What could have been an action-packed, combat-intensive game gets muddled down by mechanics that make it frustrating more often than satisfying.
  7. I feel greatly disappointed by the lack of polish that could have made it a killer title. [August 2002, p.108]
