the game is nice, very nice visuals. playing 6xAA 16xAF at 1024x768(anything higher my monitor will only go 60hz) it runs perfectly smooth (2.2athlon and [email protected]/330)

the camera is really getting to me though, its caused me to die several times because it switches to an odd angle in the middle of a jump or something and all the sudden my controls are reversed. 2 hours into the game the fighting seems a bit repetitive, though not boring. overall good game i recommend trying it

the sound is also very very good :)

I would recommend a gamepad for this game. Its a lot of fun, but I'd imagine doing some of the moves would be rather difficult with the keyboard and mouse.

Man I really wanted this game but my local eb didn't have it in stock, so I just got Dx2 Invisible War instead. I guess I'll have to wait till next friday to get my hands on this one.

It's pretty good, and I don't mind the camera... it's not that bad. I can't get past the one part with the thing and the place...

Nevermind. I just got past it. It was the Booby Trapped Courtyard level. I couldn't beat the enemies at the end

my friend bought it for PS2 friday night and it looks totally phat...i didn't play it but i was watching him play for about 2 hours and it looked AMAZING. i don't know if it'll be good for pc though, and i don't have an xbox, ps2, or gamecube..but i think i'm gonna get a gamecube after christmas so we'll see how it goes after that hehe.

It is really good for the xbox, but (as was stated by someone else) I would recomend a gamepad for this one, It seems some of the button combinations and other control aspects would be difficult with a keyboard.

Overall though, its one of the coolest games I've played lately.

I just beat this game on Xbox last weekend, loved every minute of it.

Music is great, has a nice Persian/Rock feel goin on. I must be the only one but I LOVED the camera angles, didn't have a single problem. I mainly played the "puzzle" parts with the zoomed out view though. Fighting was a bit repetitive but I never got tired of it myself. Animations were very well done, flowed smoothly between each attack/move. Graphics are nice, on par with Otogi(I compare all games to this graphic wise on the xbox) if you ask me.

It was all too short though, my only complaint. Whenever I get a working pc again I'll have to...lets just say "obtain" a copy of this game for pc. Maybe after I beat it twice I'll be satisfied...

And how in the world would you play with a keyboard & mouse o_O

mouse controls the camera around the character, wasd for movement, e is dagger, left click is attack, right click is special movement (run up and on walls, swing off pole, etc), space is jump, r is rewind, f is fast forward, q is zoomed out, f is first person, space is jump

did i miss any?

Doesn't seem so hard now that I actually see it....I just don't like the mouse controlling camera, along with attack and action (what i like to call it) button on their too. I'd screw up the camera trying to attack and wall run, etc...Would be a huge PAIN, glad I have a gamepad.

the only problem i found with the game was it isnt compatible with geforce 4 mx cards you have to get 3danalyze and shut off pixel shading and then it sometimes has a white cloud that covers the screen making it almost impossible to play but other then that it is a good game
