is the game easy to get into? or does it have a steep learning curve?


Easy, but it's extremely easy to die on hard.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

I found it to be pretty fun and have not experienced any glitches or bad hit detections like that review said. I say if your going to buy it go with a mind set that the game is not a AAA Title and you will enjoy it.Plus after your done with the campaign and if you can convince some buddy's to get a copy as well, you can find some enjoyment from the variety of game modes EX:Survival,Battle Royal,Death Ball, Cage Match,DogFight,Team DeathMatch,Etc...
I usually buy games without reading reviews because everyone has different taste in gaming and some of the games that tend to do poorly in review I have found them to be good.


That's all I wanted, was a first hand account. I'm in the same boat, I usually get games that interest me, and this one does, I just wanted to make sure it wasn't like Neverdead(interested me, but was just terrible gameplay and almost broken).

I don't mind that it's not a AAA title. Now the question becomes, which system is it better for? I have most of my games on 360 and prefer the controller, but if there's a noticable preformance difference, I'd like to know.

I was wondering myself, the Xbox version looks pretty washed out and it takes a pretty long time to properly render areas as you explore a map, so I'm wondering if the PS3 is like that as well.

Not from my experience with it. Its online seems somewhat active now too, easily getting into 4/8 player matches

That Ripten review is amazingly dumb and should be disregarded entirely as it's basically 100% false aside from the voice acting being good.

The story makes enough sense and you aren't playing the game for some mind-blowing theatrical event. They set up fights in entertaining fashion and that's what matters.

There is PLENTY of depth to the fighting, especially in a 2v2 setting as you can bait with your teammate, combo and set them up for their own combo and finish with your own, 360 attacks are punishable, the skill system makes characters quite variable and the various weapons add lots of flair. Tons of multiplayer modes to use that stuff in just makes it that much better.

There are no hit detection problems. More than likely he's just button mashing and getting hit by a 360 attack, which is invincible and he's really bad at the game. Don't just smash buttons or you will die.

There's pretty much no forced grinding unless you are absolutely awful at the game. Getting even a Silver award on any event means you're all of five minutes away from unlocking the next event and any award above that will instantly give you access to the next event.

There's definitely nothing racist and they are dumb.

PS3. Played quite a bit of 4v4 TDM, CTF and DeathBall earlier. So far Deathball seems to be my favorite, since its less about juggling and kills and more about strategy.

And about that crappy review, when he was talking about bad hit detection, I think I might have a slight idea what he was talking about. In one of the fights when I was playing as Baron fighting against Zero/His Ninja's, for some reason I had a REALLY hard time hitting them unless I actually locked on. Other than that, not a single issue I noticed.

Can anyone on ps3 check how many people are ranked in the TDM leaderboards? There's 1,600 here on the Xbox, which can be taken as an indicator of the number of people playing this. I'm wondering if most players are on PS3, if so I may need to sell my xbox version and get ps3.

I'm counting about 7,400 people ranked in just TDM. Honestly, PS3 games just tend to stay active longer. Thats just my personal experience from having played both systems for years.

While I agree with you heavily, talk of this kind will turn the thread into a shitstorm of PSN Vs Xbox Live.

The PS3 was the lead platform for this game as well as Vanquish and the upcoming Metal Gear Rising. Therefore, the usual Platinum Games' no screen tearing (fully v-synced) on the PS3 and minor tearing on the 360 rule applies to all three of these games. Bayonetta was a different story as Platinum Games made the 360 version and another company ported it to the PS3; hence the latter was inferior.

What I like to know is if the online play supports people from other countries? I've had a bad experience with Warriors Orochi 3 where the US version cannot play with Asian versions. Since this game is actually named differently here and in Asia, it makes me wonder if the servers are actually world-wide servers supporting players anywhere.

I really hoped this had a passable single player campaign and split screen like all Dynasty Warrior games.

And snakemaster you keep bringing up horrible memories of watching the series when I was young.

Mathematically Correct.

For some reason whenever I comment on preferring PSN over Xbox Live, it always turns into an argument somehow, even if I'm not still around the board.

And yeah, the Multiplayer lets you play other regions. Thats why some people are mad, the Japanese players are pulling loops and stuff. Also they are INSANELY high ranked in the leaderboards.

Yeah. My first match was against a bunch of level 40's/50's. People on other boards are whining like crazy about all the loops and combo's in Cage Matches and 2v2s.
