|First off, it's a great fighting game that is available on all of the major platforms. You can play single player or against a friend, and you hack, slash and impale in a variety of arenas with a variety of characters.|
Like all other games in this style, you can choose from a limited number of characters first (in this one about 10) and then as you go you unlock the other 10 characters. You can unlock arenas and alternate outfits and other items as well, including artwork.
The unlocking is all done through earning money. Each set of wins you achieve gives you cash. You can then go down and open koffins (there are HUNDREDS of them) and each one does something. It's really good to find a website to get the printout of koffins! Many are simply empty, but some give you great items or extra cash. You can easily rack up lots of money if you know which koffins to open.
The graphics are great, and the fighting is good. The arenas have great detail and each character's moves are very fluid. Each character has 3 styles they can cycle through, and a number of moves in each one. I have heard some people complain that there are only a few finishing moves, but really, that's just the one final blow in the fight. We hardly noticed in our gameplay.
A fun fighting game for those who enjoy the genre, but not for young kids! The huge volumes of blood pouring out of the bodies is a bit much, and the game definitely emphasizes the violence of fighting.
