Summary

A beautiful, inspirational game with good story, characters, graphics, and detail

The Good

This is one of my all-time favorites. I became really attached to the characters and loved the story. There's a feeling, as if you've entered a new world when you play this game. I love the martial-arts and history thrown into the mix. Also, the game calls for exploration. There is much to be done and a lot of it depends on the the actions you take and the decisions you make. I found some really classic events in this game.

The Bad

It ended.

The Bottom Line

It's one-of -a-kind. Games like this just to don't release everyday. It's a combination of rpg, adventure, and action. It's even more when you consider that it has emulated versions of classic sega arcade games. It's special.
