Jamescobo: Unequivocally the most embarrassing game for a girlfriend to catch you playing ever, but then again odds are most folks who would love this game aren’t going to have that problem anyway (/wrists). Also unequivocally the best pure beat-em-up since God Hand (and maybe even a little bit [is he gonna say it? is he gonna say it? oh shit he’s actually gonna say it!] better due to the refined presentation). Plus, how often do you come across a game where even the LOADING SCREENS are action-packed?

Jim D: Ridiculous and audacious and hugely funny. And it feels like it manages to mock every stupid video game idea that’s emerged in the last ten years, while simultaneously showing how cool those ideas could have been if they were handled less stupidly. I’m in love with it.

Gay Gamer Review

Jeff Levine: To be honest, I didn’t get very far, like chapter five or so? It was one of those games where I put it down and kept meaning to go back to it, but just never did. I didn’t have any super negative reaction to it, but I guess I never felt compelled to want to play it further? It sat on the shelf unplayed for so long that I eventually realized I wasn’t going to get back into it and traded it in when I needed money for something else. I don’t think it was exactly the game’s problem, more just my changing tastes and almost complete indifference to playing through a single player, story driven game. In fact, this may have been the game that made me realize I can’t maintain enough interest in a solely single player game to justify spending $60 US on them, since I never seem interested enough to play them through to the end, no matter how highly they’re rated. The basic structure of cut-scene, fight a series of small enemies, cut-scene, boss fight, then repeat, is just a type of game that now bores me horribly.
