Reviews summary
Standard hack and slash game that dosen't deliver on the charm
Has all the right parts, none of them gel together well
Swordplay never excites, bogged down by a host of flaws
Puzzles and enemies never rise above mediocre
Passably entertaining sword brawl, a rental for fans
Ouch!
Plays like hundreds of other action games, looks worse than half of them
