Alright firstly, since this was a square game, i was expecting it to be exceptional, and if it was produced by anyone else, i would probably be giving this 5 stars instead of 4.
The gameplay is fantastic, as expected from a wii game. The only bad thing about it is the way you slash. You have to keep the wii remote in the "button-facing-up" position when slashing, which is kinda hard to do, because you want to twist your wrist while attacking. The controls are a little sensitive and take a while to master, and get the wii to understand what you are telling it to do.
I was a little disappointed with the length. The game can be completed in around 6 hours (without doing any side quests). I myself have spent around 10 hours on it, redoing missions to gain the highest results possible.
The game plays out much like an arcade game, where the character must go on "missions" in different areas (8 in total). Once the 8th mission is completed (the final boss), a new area is unlocked with multiple challenging boss fights - a fine addition!
With this being a square game i was expecting some fabulous cutscenes - alas, there are none. The only cutscenes there are have the same graphics as in-game.
This is a very good game and i'm sure i'll go back to it in a few months or so and do it again. Even though i was a little disappointed with it, at £25 this is a steal.
