Summary

A good game that actually was still ok compared to the glory of BioWare's KOTOR

The Good

The story line was very fun and the twist in the plot got the story going. The graphics and sound of the game were second to none. The different combat styles made the game fun to play. The characters were very fun to play with and kept the game going. The areas were large to explore and made the game interesting. The interesting plot made the game replayable.

The Bad

The combat got a little repetitive since some creatures would all go down to the same combat moves. This games storyline seemed a bit too short compared to KOTOR. The music was ok but i think they could have done a bit better. There weren't a lot of weapons to choose from and the weapons that were there weren't that good. if they made another one of this (i wouldn't expect them to) they should add more weapons.

The Bottom Line

Defiantly for all BioWare fans, RPG fans and people who want a game that goes along with Chinese mythology.
