Summary: This is truly a bad game, its a looker alright, but the fixed camera makes it almost unplayable. the enemies you fight are often out of your sight , only the mini-map is your enemy designator to show you where to punch, kick or swipe your weapon.
Summary: For a launch PS3 game, this game is absolutely atrocious on many levels. For one, all those people lauding about the visuals, there are many PS2 games that beat this game to a pulp (Final Fantasy X, Final Fantasy XII, God of War, Resident Evil 4, Shadow of the Colossus).
Summary: Though my criticism is going to hurt all the fans of this game but I must be honest. The game's good great graphics, enemies and surroundings. The designes and makers were brilliant and did produce an awesome game.
Summary: As other reviewers have mentioned, the camera is a big flaw. It's always at the same distance and angle, so it's really easy to get into a position where you can't see your enemies. Enough past games have gotten this right that I think this is an inexcusable flaw.
Summary: Well the fact is this is a game you shouldn't buy... unless you see it in a $5 bargain Bin, and only if your curious, but I'm tellin ya it's a waste of time. It looks good. Actually it looks great. I just can't for the life of me figure out how they could have screwed the camera up so bad.
Summary: Borrow it off a friend, but don;t be the one stupid enough to buy it.
Pros: The graphics are pretty, and the special attack mode looks cool, it's one of those games which at first is awesome, and then slowly over time, it just gets much worse.
Cons: No camera control, very repetative and also very pointless. There's one bit of the game that can take you hours simply because they've made the camera angles + jumping so difficult to control. Sound track is pretty weak too.
Genji - Like dynasty warriors... but no where near.

Summary: I have to say, i was looking very forward to it. Even the beginning you play as the guy on the cover, and he is really good. The fighting system is very fluid and easy to get used to, but the camera is the biggest pain i have ever experienced. It does not let you move it around.
