Excerpt: The graphics in this fighter are pretty good. The FMV sequence at the beginning of the game was excellent, as well as the 'background' FMV shown after choosing a character. The backgrounds are nicely designed and are unique in that each one has its own dangers and traps that can injure the fighters. Each area reflects a different character's personality (your opponent in the one player mode).
Excerpt: Fighters. Racers. Racers. Fighters. Today, the gaming scene is swamped with these two genres. Only the occasional title is superior to the rest.

In a medieval, war-stricken world, only the power promised by the Book of Knowledge can lead a clan to victory.
