You can't get better when it comes to hack and slash in the new millennium.
24 July 2009 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

A very entertaining, spectacular hack and slash effort for 360. Although it does not exploits the capacity of the xbox, it truly delivers magnificent moments for fans of the series.

It starts in a spectacular manner with a great video intro and very soon you get to be a part of the action.

The visuals are stunning and will make you think of 90'S Capcom. The sound is also fantastic and makes you really wish to be in that world.

I really like this game for it's easy controls, spectacular graphics, violence converted through swords and more.

The creepy battle with the fire gigantic monster is among the best moments in the game.

This is truly a masterpiece when it comes to hack and slash. A new favorite and future cult classic.
