I LOVED this game when growing up. Me and my friends really enjoyed playing this game together in multiplayer mode. You definitely don't need more people than just yourself to have fun in this game, though. I played solo more often than not. The story isn't DEEP, but I definitely remember enjoying the story. I spent so much time going through the game (as in not just doing random battles).
Addictive If You Like It
The graphics are somewhere in the in between--not Original Zelda bad or Twilight Zelda good--and the voice acting could use a whole lot of work, but to those who find appeal in the characters and the 'smack 'em all around' nature of the game it can be very addicting. There are a lot of parts that can be pretty challenging (survival versus both Kresh and Karas!) or confusing (teleport pads!) or frustrating (how about those zombies or Tai and Naja's tiger miniboss?), but it helps to keep you on your toes. Unfortunately there isn't a whole lot to do once you've beaten the game with all of your characters; all that's left is to collect the rest of the runes and beef your characters up to the max, plus the annoyingly challenging Survival mode. It's a game good for those who like the characters, are interested in the story, or want just want to relieve some stress on some of Kang's lackies.
