I saw the low reviews for this long after playing it. It is not an easy game, but those who seek a challenge while weilding a sword will thoroughly enjoy this game. It is NOT easy and for those who give up easy, this is not your game.

Graphically I found it to be excellent, the music was so-so but consistent with the genre. The story itself is easy enough to follow and game maps which highlight your objectives make it easy enough to roll along.

The fighting is what this game is all about and it just keeps getting better and better as the game rolls along. You will add members of the roundtable and have the option to play with them as you go through the game if you so desire. All characters also have special abilities although using them in combat will require some skill with a joystick. There is also a "rhythym" feature that you must learn with your attacks that once you master will make combat all the more enjoyable.

In sum, if you want to just hack through levels and never block one enemies attack this game is not for you. If, like me, you enjoy truly challenging combat that test your dexterity and hand eye as well as force you to block attacks and learn to exploit your enemies weaknesses while capitalizing on your own strengths in hard fought battles, buy this game.
