MarsR10For 800 ms points its a extremely good buy, Plenty of fighters and customizations to chose from and an excellent combat system. the gore in this game is the same you would expect from the show. Its very fun to just watch. And expect Future dlc to contain season 2 fighters. Must buy for Deadliest Warrior fans or just fighting game fans in general… Expand
JackQ10I knew instantly that this game would instantly be panned by critics. A critic's job pretty much only consists of blasting games like this. Based on a television show? Must be bad. A fighter game without hadoukens and spinning kicks? *cringe*... It is all very unfair. Try the game for yourself. If you have fond memories of classics such as Bushido Blade and/or you can't stomach today's overrated fighting games, this game is an accessible and addictive entry into the genre. Every swing counts and the way characters become stained with blood and have their limbs crippled/dismembered really adds a gritty element to the game. And despite a sketchy sound design and a few instances of lag, I couldn't help but let out an involuntary "YEAH!" the first time I instantly killed an enemy by spiking their head with a pike and nailing it to the wall in one clean throw. Seriously, don't the the minor flaws of this game bog it down for you. And ignore the petty critics who cut some corners with assumptions in order to get their job done quickly.… Expand
Deadlist Warrior for the XBLA is a very enjoyable game! So long as you go into with a correct mindset. Deadlist Warrior is a game that brings me back to the good old days of fighting games like Bushido Blade on the PSOne. Games where you can die in just one or two strikes and requires lots of blocking and proper parrying if you really want to succeed.
Of course it takes some of historys warriors through out the time (mind you, no modern warriors, play Call of Duty if you want that). All with their own strengths and weaknesses. You will find a preference to the one you particularity like, weather it is the speed or the ninja or the defense of the Spartan. They are all fun to romp through at least once.
The single player is nothing more than arcade mode and bonus stages in between. The real meat of the game is just the thrill of playing it with your friends! The game also has some really fun limb hacking and decapitating to keep stuff fun. Yes, it isn't the most deep experince in the fighting game genre you can get, but it is just crazy and fast paced enough to keep your attention. The game is only $10 and supports Xbox Live to fight your friends (or random ass people) online. With the amount of blood and gore and simple yet almost complex battle system, it is a fun game to play with your buddies.… Expand
This game works, there is no doubt about that, but really I just don't like the game, it's not because it's based on a show, I like the show, it's just that this game is broken, it looks awful, some characters are completely and utterly useless. frankly this game is a waste of ten dollars, I can buy tons of better PS2 games for the same price. I mean this was a poorly done clone of bushido blade, I saw potential in bushido blade, but this game isn't so much a step up as a leap backwards.… Expand
