Dec 4, 2012I just played the game through... took me 34:33 minutes.
While the comic style character design (the princess looks like MULAN) looks good, I would have preferred something more "sincere" - as in the original.
I must say, although Jordan Mechner himself was involved in its production, the game is utterly disappointing.
While the 1984 original was won through tactics and using timed high mid and low punches / kicks, the 2012 version is a mere series of QTE (quick time events):
First block the enemy's attacks - then attack.
You just hit the punch/kick buttons - it does not really matter which.
Funny how it seems today's computing power often hinders great game design & balance nowadays...… Expand
