All fighting, no substance
If the combat from games like Devil May Cry or Ninja Gaiden appeals to you but you don't have any interest in all that running around and exploring, then this might be of interest to you. However, while there's no denying there's some fun and fast-paced fighting to be had here when it's separated from any real gameplay, it quickly becomes dull and repetitive. There is a storyline to follow here, which revolves around the adventures of two shrine maidens who are warring over possession of powerful demon sword but with the lack of anything other than the fighting, it's kind of hard to get too invested in the narrative or characters as they feel too disconnected from the action. The gameplay itself is pure arena-based fighting, where you face off against wave after wave of demonic enemies. You're armed with a katana and can dish out lightning-quick attacks with your blade or get more up close and personal with your hands while there are skill points to earn and upgrades to spend them on. You've also got combos to learn and other moves to pick up. If all you want is a fighting game which mixes high-pace action with lots of combos and moves to learn, then this will probably be of interest. For an indie game, this is certainly quite impressive in its visuals, with some slick enemy and environment design which is very stylish. The combat is fun for a while and possesses some depth but when you realize that there's nothing beyond new enemies and new arenas (which only really change visually) you're likely to wonder why you bothered.
