Well i bought it! I really like the game, although it is a bare (with eight fighters and five stages) compared to other fighter game franchises, like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Tekken and Virtua Fighter. 
 
The game has a high learning curve with a heavy focus in strategy, blocking and dodging. Also generally the fights don't take more than thirty seconds, as almost if not all fighters can kill in a single move, if lucky enough.  
 
It is good, with a lot of replayability, as no two fights will ever happen in the same way.  
 
The "realistic" approach is well implemented, although the degree of damage seems a little random, as two strikes can give rise to different damage, and while you chop arms, legs, the head and bleed to death, you can't crawl in the battle field. Still it is very well implemented this kind of gameplay.  
 
 Unlockables include various kinds of weapons and armour, and also avatar clothing.  
 
The game while won't blow you out of the water, it is very well made, and for me it is worth the 800 points.  
 
Any questions? 
 
------------ 
 
edit: another important detail is that each fighter represents the concept of a fighter of each class, be it a pirate, or a ninja, and not particulary a character. They have shouts, but not really a personality.

Is Jeff Bidges in the game?

If that's the case is it comparable to  Bushido Blade, if you've played it?

#7 Posted by papercut (3498 posts) -

and what are the avatar awards?

#8 Posted by puercoperro335 (91 posts) -

I was playing the demo and found clipping to be a issue with the Spartan, as in the spear would go through the ninja at times and do no damage whatsoever, same problem with the shield.  Have you noticed that to be an issue with any other warrior?

#9 Edited by FrankCanada97 (4039 posts) -

Is it as realistic as the TV commercials on Spike claim it to be?

the warriors in it are: 
  • the roman centurion
  • the spartan
  • the knight
  • the samurai
  • the ninja
  • the Apache indian
  • the Pirate
  • the Viking
 
I did too, from what i've saw of the show. It is a nice fighting game.

There aren't any real person cameo in the game.

I haven't played it, still i think it is, from what i've heard. You can play the demo, to see if you think it too. 
 
@papercut said:

I've unlocked the samurai outfit. There are probably more, still i have only beat the game with the roman centurion, samurai and spartan, so there are bound to be more.

Yeah sometimes. Sometimes the fighting gets really intense, and some blows don't count. Or luckily or unluckily you can provoke or take some pretty bad damage like severing the arm, or taking out the head of the opponent.   
 
@FrankCanada97 said:

Yeah i think so. Even the fighting styles are pretty accurate, although the blocking mechanism feels a little unrealistic.

 Wasted opportunity, that license could make for a good game  but it looks horrible and it feels like it would be better if locked to a 2d plane.

At least it isn't an Japanese anime game.

Is fiddy cent in there? Or any equivalent of fiddy? If there is, then does he ride a van? If he does, then does he jump over bigass ramps with his friend who may or may not be Tony YaYo?

 I thought that it would be better in 2d too especially with the targeting problems I had with.

I'd like to know this too. Bushido Blade was the best thing back in the day and needs a modern interpretation.

I liked the game, and i prefer in 3D, as it gives new emphasis to tactics. You can hide, circle the oponent, fight him from the distance, it is more realistic this way, as 2D feels really limited to a fighter with such emphasis in strategy.
#16 Posted by ryanwho (12082 posts) -

Its supposed to be some kinda sim in some way, so 3d movement makes sense. A 3d plane Last Blade type thing could be cool, haven't seen that since Fighter's Destiny. I agree its a potentially fun idea, and also its the basis behind like every fighting game already except they're not limited to what could happen in reality.

I understand that point, but sometimes the camera just screws you over when you get near a wall or pillar, not to mention how tough it is to get your guy to face the opponent sometimes.
#18 Posted by SteamPunkJin (1286 posts) -

On the Joystiq preview they were talking about customizing the look and weapons of the fighters as you play - how deep does that go? How many outfit and weapon options are there per fighter? It seemed like there were a few slots for weapon types, how does that work? Bring in any four weapons or pick one each from a set of categories?

#19 Posted by puercoperro335 (91 posts) -
@SteamPunkJin: 
I think Richard mentioned there were around 50 different weapons and armor for use in the preview.
#20 Posted by Joeybagad0nutz (1438 posts) -

Are they going to add new warriors to it? And do the weapons feel different?

Each fighter has, like in the show, three kinds of weapons that he brings to a fight - long range, mid range and short range - and also a specific armour. You take one of each kind to a fight. As you play more, you come to unlock different weapons, i think one for each range, and a new armour, each with their specific characteristics (like speed, damage and manoeuvrability). You can make different combinations of weapons and armours afterwards.  It's not very deep, but with everything else gives a more robust fighting system.

It is true! I think there is a bit of a problem with the dogde move, as you invariably will look towards the side you have dogded to, and will be open to to a counter attack.

 Yeah, i think the developers said in a interview they had plans to add new fighters. The weapons do feel different with different ranges, speed, damage and techniques.

Does the real game HAVE FRAMERATE DROPS EVERY 5 SECONDS, like the trial?

#25 Posted by RenMcKormack (1074 posts) -

Is it based in the show like do you practice with the weapons and then fight or is it just a fighting game.  Is the narrator guy in it from the show?

Has Kid Rock authenticated it yet?

I don't think so, as with high power long range weapons, it would brake the fighting system. Ancient warriors aren't any match for both IRA or the Taliban.

Not every five seconds. Both sometimes it happens.

It is almost just a fighting game, although you have a mini-game, much like street fighter's breaking the car, with pig carcasses.

I still play Bushido Blade and Bushido Blade 2 to this day as they are my favourite fighters next to Mortal Kombat. This game is not Bushido Blade.  I would say this game is kinda like a normal fighting game with Hardcore mode turned on (less strikes to finish you but there's still a health bar) and with the L1 button from Bushido Blade (free movement/running) turned on all the time. I felt like the only way to focus my character on my opponent was to block but maybe I was missing something. I only tried the demo, though, but I only tried the demo for the sole reason to see if it was like Bushido Blade. I wasn't very pleased. :/ For those who never got to play BB I would say this is an alright-to-good game for that kind of tactical fighting. 
 
EDIT: Played the demo several more times. You can throw weapons to do one hit kills like in BB and the "always free running" is okay once you learn the game a bit better. I think I might pick this one up. I never heard of the show before, but this is probably the closest we'll get to a BB game so I might as well. I just wish there was a way to turn off displays on the screen (health bars, etc).
#30 Posted by TheGreatGuero (9130 posts) -

It actually looks pretty decent. Is there a demo?

#31 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3091 posts) -
@TheGreatGuero:
There's the trial game.  Me and my brother just spent an hour with it, and we're considering buying it now.  Pretty fun, though I advise you to have someone to play it with.

There's an achievement for beating 25 warriors in survival mode- i'm having an issue even finding survival mode.

@CoheedFavorHouse:
 
To get to survival mode, you have to beat the game with every character, then it is in the "Challenge" menu under Single Player
#34 Posted by MrRedwine (430 posts) -

As for my thoughts on the game.  I think it's a good value for $10.  I find myself wishing for more stages and characters, which I know I'll pay for later, bu the fighting system is deep and interesting.  My wife and I had a good time murdering each other for about an hour earlier, it was great!

The game is bare, but it solid. I liked the series, and think the game is better. But try the demo and feel it a bit for yourself.

The sound is what you would expect if you fought a realistic battle. No techno music, or classic, or even rock, only enviromental sounds.  
 
The game isn't too hard, the game is focused heavily on strategy. If you button mash or head straight to battle you are bound to lose.  You have to defend, circle the oponent, find and opening, create a opening, and strike.
 
And i agree that gets boring after a while, although i find it awesome to play for short periods, as no two battles will be the same. And it is fun when you get the hang of the figthing system.

Hard and boring? Do you often get bored by things that best you? You might have a learning disorder.

Now that is deadly. I'm glad to hear it, I've grown tired of people claiming to be the deadliest and it takes a good 10 minutes for a fatality.

Lol most fights in the game won't take more than thirty seconds.  With frequency one of the warriors suffer some heavy damage and is disabled, be it  in the use of one arm, or a leg, or maybe headless, in which case the fight ends, which makes the game pretty brutal sometimes. If you start badly a fight, it is generally hard to turn it around.

said:

From the looks of it, it is the medieval knight. With all fighters that i pitted against him, i always had a hard time. Heavy armour plating, shield, sword, crossbow and a lance make him pretty hard to beat.

@Jeust: i thought the spartan was king of season one. 
 
btw, out of pure interest, who would you like to see most in the game, maybe as dlc or possibly a sequel?
