    Great graphics and soundtrack, with a story told in anime-style by chapter, but with simplistic (and confuse) gameplay, consisting of QuickGreat graphics and soundtrack, with a story told in anime-style by chapter, but with simplistic (and confuse) gameplay, consisting of Quick Time Events and simple figthing sequences mixed into the story.

    Looks like a mixture between Dragon Ball Z and Shurato, if the gameplay has been more substantial, would receive a score 8,0 - 8,5.

    Giving a score to this, in lack of a better word, "game" is hard because it's not a game.

    Giving a score to this, in lack of a better word, "game" is hard because it's not a game.

    It's some kind of an interactive japanese anime with some short and poor session of play between them.

    On on hand you got incredible cinematics that drive a very immersive story that is unfortunately filled with qte (i hate qte, it's not fun and prevent us to really appreciate the story.... and above all they have no impact on how the stroy evolve, it's just scoring), and on the other hand you got very boring, allways the same session of playing that includes poor railshooting, beat'em all and boss fight that you can resume in dodging until the small weakness window allow to hit him.

    So how can we score this ? well as it is sold as a video game (with the price that came with it) it is just plain bad. Gameplay wise it's a disaster, 90% of the said gameplay consist in qte and the rest is always the same boring action. Story wise it is superb, too bad it's not an just an anime, it would have been way better.

    As a video game, witch is what i judge here i can only give a bad score of 3.

    As an anime, i would give it a 8.

    Too bas it's a video game....


    PS : french user here, sorry for bad english/spelling.

    Unique, fun and compelling. A non stop action ride in the vicinity of dbz and gow but if you don't like qte then you might not enjoy it asUnique, fun and compelling. A non stop action ride in the vicinity of dbz and gow but if you don't like qte then you might not enjoy it as it's a very large percentage of what makes this game so special. Full Review »
