    This was the most shallow review i ever seen in my life. and i knew this would be a trainwreck as soon as i saw you blindly judging it because KOEI develoed it. It has the same premise as DW games but its not the same. So does everyone of a certain race look the same to you? And on the background, its a post apocolyptic world. Did you expect to see sunsets and dolphins? Yes this game is repeatative as hell but so is every Halo and Tony Hawk but yet those always get 5s? You people are getting to be more rediculus than IGN. I dont think ill support G4 anymore after seeing this review. Its not fair to people that actually fall your crap to miss out on great games like this Because KOEI doesnt pay you off to get good reviews. Besides Xplay sucked ever since Tech Tv sold out.

    I feel like this review was not done to its full potential. It seemed that the "review" was meant only to bash the game and give opinions rather than actually REVIEW the game. Right off the bat, let me just say that the comment, "You may like this game if you like the anime and have half a brain" was a little insulting. I am a huge fan of the anime and think it is great. I played the game and loved it. So, does that mean I have half a brain? No. It doesn't. It is just another opinion. As for the repetitive nature of the game; I think that it is meant to be that way. If you have ever seen the anime, then you will know that there are a few moves that are used all of the time and that it is just a lot of mass fighting. That is what makes the anime what it is. So wouldn't it make sense to copy that into a game to give us the feel of the anime? Yes. Another thing is saying that the game is just another Dynasty Warrior. Yes, it is by the same company but you could say the same thing about some of the Call of Duty games. You just skim the surface and that is the likeness. When you go deeper and explore the game, you'll find things that are unique. Again, use Call of Duty as an example. Doom could also work for this example. Compare Duke Nukem '64 to Doom and you'll probably think that it is the same and that one is just a clone. Finally, the graphics look fine. They look better than some of the games that are out now. All I am saying is that Ken's Rage may have been swept under the rug and should be taken out for a better review.

    What an incredibly shallow review. If the entire premise of your review is to encapsulate your opinion into a single sentence that tells almost nothing about the actual content of the game beyond a simple and unabashedly biased slandering of it, don't bother speaking. Not only do you ignore the actual content that has made the game differentiable from others in the series, you barely even *attempt* to convey a semblance of what the game's story and mechanics are trying to capture. I'm amazed this review was even two minutes long, considering you literally say one serious line; the length alone should tell you (and anyone else watching) how complex and thorough your analysis is. Yet, I watched, interested in the notion that someone could sum up an entire game in two minutes.

    Let me grace you with the same brief and uncaring labeling you've deemed necessary for Koei: You've wasted my time and the time of anyone else daring to view this. Perhaps you should consider adding an opinion section to your review site. Then people may at least assume the ensuing mindless and superficial rant will be like this one for FotNS--devoid of any constructive or insightful piece of information.
