You can choose between two kingdoms, England or France, with their unique characters such as Edward the Black Prince or Jeanne D'Arc.

What a horrible looking game

I played the Japanese demo and the cutscenes were pretty impressive. Wish I could say the same for the gameplay. Then again I had no idea what I was doing.

Does look quite bad compared to something like Ninety Nine Nights. That had shiny bummapped armor on at least twice that amount of enemies with rarely a hiccup. This has flat PS2 non-shader textures (I kid you not).

With games like these you either have to eat your next-gen hat and pull out the "its the game that counts" super special hat, or turn your back in disgust.

Though this is not the worst example in this genre, Dynasty Warriors deserves a beating more than this.

@ Joergen )

do you still not get ,that this plays nothing like DW ?

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah I would hope so. The fact it's $60 right now in this stage is rough though (49 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I'm assuming since it's 1st party there's a decent chance of it eventually becoming good. (59 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks so I'm thinking I may wait to buy Sea of Thieves when it actually has good quest content. Game is REAL shallow (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (6 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (6 Hours ago)
