Excerpt: Meet Sieg Warheit. Despite his fancy title of the Dark Knight of Glyph, his job basically involves kicking evil’s ass. Armed with little more than a glowing sword, divine magic, and a flowing cape, Sieg has to wander through medieval Europe and annihilate all the demons roaming the countryside. While brutally slaughtering hordes of random evil beings is little more than a day at the office for him, Sieg’s latest assignment is a bit more intriguing.
Excerpt: I don't know what's gotten into the water coolers at Capcom, but I find the major shift in their output to be somewhat disturbing. They've always had the gift for fast, kinetic games (especially fighters), but lately they seem content producing shallow, repetitive action titles. That's not to say that an emphasis on action is bad—far from it—but their perspective is so tightly focused that they're excluding elements that would make the games more enjoyably rounded.
Excerpt: While I certainly agree with Brad's review of Chaos Legion , I can't help but feel his final score was too generous. I have a hard time looking at the game (and its myriad flaws) as anything better than average, and that's if I was feeling particularly generous. Brad's review hits all of the right notes. The game is stereotypical Capcom filtered through Square.
Excerpt: When a new videogame is released, it can generally be placed into a conveniently marked pot with other games that are similar to it. This is something that can’t really be said of Capcom’s new adventure title ‘ Chaos Legion ‘ that clearly borrows parts from practically every genre known to man, with somewhat limited success.
Excerpt: When I first heard of Chaos Legion , I was pretty hyped. Supposedly combining the nonstop action of Devil May Cry with strategy and RPG elements, the game had me sold instantly. Unfortunately, the game turned out a disappointment in most respects.
Excerpt: Capcom is in love with stylish action games. This much is obvious after the success of Devil May Cry . And because of this love affair, they've taken some of the basic elements (visual and musical design and even animation) to create Chaos Legion . Players take on the role of Seig Warheit, a young knight with the ability to call demonic Legions to his aid in battle.
Pros: Legion aspect nice addition, Great looking CG, Lots of on-screen action
Cons: Repetitive to a fault, Backgrounds are drab, Linear and not as deep as it could be
Excerpt: The RPG elements come in the form of experience points, which are accumulated as you defeat enemies. Let your Legion make the final hit on an enemy and you are given bonus experience points. These points can then be used to power up your Legions offensive and defensive stats, unlock special moves and abilities, and add to their numbers. Sieg can also collect powerups that increase his own health, power, and defense.
Excerpt: Capcom's Chaos Legion storms its way into the gaming scene. Leading a legion of troops against 30+ enemies on screen at once, a little Devil May Cry, a little Dynasty Warriors, loads of hack and slash, and ultimately boring as hell. Eric tells us why right here.
