Death By Degrees
Death by Boredom
This game is largely killed by hideous graphics, horrendous fighting controls, and terrible camera angles. This game is a mess in so many ways that I just don't want to describe it.
While the game includes a few mini-games and puzzle solving, the biggest part of the game will be the combat which uses the same system as Jet Li: Rise to Honor where you merely tap the R analog stick in the general direction of your enemy. This control scheme just feels imprecise and uninvolving. The game manages to do with button mashing only to replace it with mindless analog stick flicks. The game even makes blocking a part of flicking the R analog stick while dodging is controlled by quickly flicking the L analog stick, but more often then not you'll hold the L stick for to long and merely walk in the direction you were intending to roll towards to avoid an enemy attack.
The game also offers a few stealth mechanics but this moves tend to be so difficult to pull off that you'll usually just decide to engage your enemies in fisticuffs instead. You can also pick up weapons dropped by defeated enemies, but the only ones worthwhile are the melee weapons since the guns are controlled in the same way that your punches and kicks are.
Graphically speaking the game feels ugly and unappealing to the eyes. The character models are just terrible and even the main character looks like she got hit a few dozen times with the ugly stick. The environments are also rather low in terms of textures as well which only adds to the underwhelming package.
The background music is rather forgettable, while the constant sound of high heels plopping on the deck of the ship will make you want to pull your hair out.
The game offers additional modes of difficult as well as some other perks that can be acquired after beating the game, but it just feels empty since the game itself is so atrocious.
Lasting Appeal: 1
This game is cool it has a good story line of a Tekken spinoff. the game play is Excellent all moves chain together making fighting more real. i would say try it out take your time getting use to the fighting controls and you will like it.
Well I wanted to try the game only becuz the price was low. was the only reason i bought this game knowing about the bad reviews and the workers telling me "Are i sure you want to buy this game it kinda sucks." At first the game was pretty neat on the new fighting style instead of most games where you use the " X O  and /\" buttons and yes it really needed work for your char. tends to attack in a different way and the moves on the game hard kinda hard to parform. the story line was kinda of boring besides the sister part. was kinda of hard at first. The graphics in the game werent to bad for the game it self. I would only recommend this game to someone who really wants to give any game a try and help newer games find better ways to use the controls in a more controlable way. Thanks for reading.
I came across this game solely by accident, a friend was throwing it out and offered it to me, and i regret ever playing it! the game is just beyond horrible but i shouldn't have expected to much from a Tekken spinoff. Tekken really isn't played or praised for it's story lines. All fighting moves are done with the analog stick (i.e push up on the analog stick and Nina kicks) which pretty much gets extremely irritating after 5 minutes because when you try to point your analog stick in a northwest direction or and "corner" your character just tends to attack straight majority of the time. besides that the story is nothing at all to get excited about. overall i would not recommend this game to anyone. my copy right now is in a box somewhere collecting dust.
