Summary: Not good, not bad. Most positive thing i can say is they made something different.. This is not an RPG, it is an action game, and very twitch/fastpaced at that. Its most like Ninja Gaiden on Xbox, or Shinobi, in my opinion. There are no "levels" to your character. You buy skills with gold.
Summary: This is a decent game. It still has those infamous marshmellow gumdrop monsters with smiling faces in it that many Japanese games seem to have, heh. This is a monster hunter type game with hack-n-slash combat. The upgrades are weapon and cards that fir on your outfit.
