While at first it may seem a bit unusual compared to the hack and slash style of previous games, you soon realise that this game isnt all about how best to kill your opponant, its enjoying the lead up.
This games storyline is in two words, amazingly fantastic. It plays out like an arc of the anime, but based around you. Absolutely brilliant, it even has Aturo Reurning form Shattered Blade, what more could one want. Absolute bargain!
