Review Introduction:

This game has it all. Now, it really is just another sword fighting game like samurai showdown and such but once you get into the game it is much much more. There are 12 standard characters, 14 with the boss code. After you pick a character you get to choose between speed and power modes. In speed mode your attacks are much weaker then in power but you can link up multiple attacks into combos, and in power your attacks are very strong but they can't be linked.

The graphics are wonderful, the characters are detailed very well and the backgrounds are very very nice. There are some cool effects that go along with the backgrounds, like leaves flying up when you walk on Kaedes stage and snow "poofing" up when you get knocked down in Yuki's stage. And the cinema at the beginning is nice but not as good as Last Blade 2.

The sound is very good, the FX are great (voices and slashing of swords) and the music is very good.

This is my 2nd favorite NeoGeo game, my favorite is KOF99, but this is very very good.

Graphics: 10/10
Sound: 10/10
Game play: 10/10
Replay Value: 9/10

Overall Rating: 9.75/10
