If this game has fabulous cutscenes then I will bother playing it. Berserk has a fantastic story and the new anime did it no justice at all.

the salt in the would is that a videogame for a generic hack b' slash has Way better animation than a new anime show after waiting all this time. Anime is trash.

Seems you misunderstand the concept of Anime isn't to always follow the cookie cutter animation art style formula.

The Anime series takes a risk with it's CGi use and it actually works very well.

As far as the game, it is funny how the first attempt way back on Dreamcast preceded the Dynasty Warriors genre but was still an early 3d polygon evolution of the old 2d side scrolling beat em ups and hack and slash em ups.

ha ha ha should we say they are almost... courageous? lmao.

with the usage of cg/animation, what a shit looking anime, by some of the worst anime standards. it's horrible.

Same goes for the original 1995 anime, just horrible, and after watching a bit further than only ep1 I can safely say both are shit shows. As to the animation techniques: Imo traditional animation =/= better if it's as badly executed as in the original show (compare that to Space Adventure Cobra from 1982 for example). Only animations that did the manga justice were the 3 movies, rest is forgettable, which is sad. But the new low will be this game, which will not only feature bad animation but also bad graphics combined with abysmal Warriors buttonmashing gameplay... *sigh*

Omega Force should make another Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll, one of the best action/rpgs on PS3, good story, characters and gameplay.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (54 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (56 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (2 Hours ago)
