  1. This game version sadly falls in the worst of all three media releases behind the graphic novel, and motion picture.
  2. 45
    If you took a "Dynasty Warriors" game and stripped away every redeeming quality, you would more or less end up with March to Glory.
  3. While the stylized cut scenes do a decent job of re-imagining the original comic artwork, the in-game graphics are blocky. Worse yet, they’re simply generic, evoking none of the turbo-charged, blood-soaked style of either the comic or the movie.
  4. The button mashing game play bears a resemblance to Koei's Dynasty Warriors series, but with poorly applied phalanx and stealth segments thrown on top. The graphics look shoddy, particularly with the constant barrage of arrows and sloppy animation.
  5. No frills? No thrills, more like. [June 2007, p.105]

    As depictions of large battles go its probably the least epic I've ever seen, hampered by an engine that seems unable to cope with more than ten or twelve characters on screen at once and some of the most soul destroyingly boring combat you'll find it manages to take a fantastic premise and some of the most visually striking source material around to produce a game that will be filling bargain bins around the country within weeks.

    It has moments of inspired violence, and the story it tells is engaging, but there is too much monotony to the gameplay to make it addictive.
  8. 25
    The broken controls, derivative enemies, and maddening attack moves remove any ounce of fun. The saving graces are the cut-scenes, but we don't even play that part. So in short, it's at its best when you're not touching the controls, and when a game plays this badly, you don't want to.
  9. Truly a generic licensed game gone wrong.

    A good game, quite good graphics and not a bad story. You never at any point during gameplay have more than 2 body guards with you. Its a good game, very very easy at some points, and very very hard at other points. Takes around 10 hours to complete and it isnt too bad a game. Full Review »

    I can see why people didnt like this game. I personally liked it, even if it wasnt very well dont or polished. Its good fun. I wasnt expecting much, so maybe thats part of it. I liked learning cool moves and they make it seem unscripted but i feel like i did that on my own. Sometimes the bosses are very challenging while the normal enemies are too easy, but overall, not for everyone. this review can be used for the movie, same idea. Full Review »

    The people that give this low scores are the people that never beat it. Once you beat this game, like John E said, you keep everything the second time around, where you kill guys in a hit or 2 as apposed to 2 combos, with lots more dismemberment and decapitation, that should have been put in on the first run. the phalanx formation is lame at best, but that is just a small part, and once you get it, is not particularly difficult to win. So if you have the patience to beat this game the first time, you will be pleasantly surprised the second time. Full Review »
