             Stimulating !

            How to start ?! It's a button basher, but does need some skill to get decent combo's.... It's gory to bits - If ya like cutting people to shreds with a big samurai then this is gonna entertain ya !! The storyline is unique enough and it can get quite eery and creepy but keeps you guessing.... Graphics are a mix of 2D and 3D kinda like SF4 it's not amazin' graphics but it'll keep ya grinnin' when ya see arms and legs and heads sliced and diced in front of ya. Samuel L Jackson adds some great voice overs..... if ya have young children don't play this in front of them.. They'll have all sorts of nasty new words for ya !! 8 out of 10 from me !!

             hong kong fooooey!!!!!!!
