Summary

A fun slash em up game with a rich story.

The Good

With about thirty charcters to play this game has a lot of replay value. Each character has a unique part to play in the story of the three different houses. There are many levels, characters, and items to unlock in this game. Chopping the opposing army to bits has never been so entertaining!

The Bad

In two player mode the draw distance of enemies is significantly reduced. Most of the time this isn't a problem, but it can really make you hot under the collar when you become a human pincushion from archers you can't see offscreen, much less attack.

This game doesn't use the Xbox's full potential as it is a playstation 2 convert. This doesn't make the game less fun, but it makes you wonder what else they could have put in.

The Bottom Line

Pick a character and you will be right into the heat of battle in moments. Each map has a victory and defeat condition, and you must help your side achieve your goal before your enemy can complete theirs. Secrets lie on every map, and your actions must be chosen carefully; should you charge into the enemy's flank or reinforce a sneak attack on the enemy general?
