    The split screen, is very disorienting... wierd behaving shadows... seems fighting not very satisfing... more of a ranged combat game.

  1. I am simply amazed at how cowardly these creatures become when close to death.
  2. As dee-lish as all the camp and nostalgia is, it's also very reminiscent of the source material; pretty, stylish, but ultimately rather vapid when it comes to depth.
  3. The battles themselves are chaotically free-for-all, allowing up to four monsters to grapple hand-to-hand and even rip up handy lampposts, buildings, and cars to bludgeon enemies.
