Gameplay wise it is a pure button masher, but what makes it really awesome is sword swipes can actually sever an enemies limbs/head/body depending on where hit. I've cut people diagonally across, sliced off chunks of their back, cut off their foot, whatever. When you hold the left trigger you go into a focus mode where time slows and you charge an attack, targeting where you want it to land. If the enemy is low on health (they'll get a deep red shading on their model), he/she will usually be severed right where the sword lands.
Graphics are great and very stylish, voice acting is just like in the anime, and the presentation is overall well done. While the core gameplay concepts of quick attack, strong attack, and kick can seem dull, the limb severing and presentation make up for it. It's also worth noting that so far, the story has stuck pretty close to the anime. There are also half naked stripper samurai with huge boobs.
Worth the $16 I spent for it at Gamestop.

Forgot to mention it, but the music also kicks ass. I think I read a long time ago that the beat of the music changes the AI's behavior a bit. I haven't noticed anything like that though.

Well I played it for about an hour or so, I gotta say this game is pretty damn cool. My only complaint is the camera is jacked up at times, but I'm getting used to it. It has been well worth the money.


If you haven't already press start and adjust the camera options...I think it's the second option you can highlight but change it and you should be golden.

thanks for all of the input guys, the $20 sounds worth it so I think I'll be making a stop by GS today!

If you use trade in credit at Gamestop they don't tax it. [In some places]

Apathetic - that isn't true everywhere. For example, not true here in MD. We pay tax even when using credit.

Looks like they did for the PS3 version, but the 360 version is still 39.99. I ordered a PS3 copy for 17.99 out the door using ECA.

That blows. I'd rather buy this game from Amazon instead of Gamestop, but looks like they let me down. :booty:

Shipping in 2-4 weeks is what OOS means. Out Of Stock. They don't have it right now.

Rented this one weekend
Excellent game, but very short. Even for $20 I would probably still rent it instead

Meh - to me OOS means it's not available at all (like Eternal Sonata)
