Summary: This game must be for the fanatic Japanese history / strategy junkies only (I thought I was one until I played this). The interface is clumsy, and the gameplay and storylines are repetitive. Yes, the cutscenes do look quite good....
Excerpt: I rented kessen from my local store as i thought i might like it. The reason i thought this was because i am a big fan of red alert and the command and conquer series, and i thought it looked simular to these.
Summary: Remember Defender of the Crown on the Amiga? That had pretty pictures and would impress your mates. If you want do only that, then Kessen will succeed. the presentation of the game is top notch. However this says nothing of the obvious failings of the game.
