Utterly bad. The short story is... there is NO game here. Avoid at all costs.
Maybe tomorrow after I've returned it (or strangled the clerk for giving me flak about trying to) I'll have a decent rant about it... but really, it doesn't deserve my breath except as an astonished "my god, they let THIS come out at release?"

You bought it? Good God Man! Even the previews said it was horrible!

It's not just bad... it's 1.4 out of 10 on Gamespot's crazy scale where hardly anything seems to get below a 5. That's Bad with a capital B.

I am ashamed to admit that I was even interested in the premise of this game. Bah.

The insult-to-injury part is that Kabuki Warriors was done by the same people (or at least the same company) who brought you Bushido Blade, an excellent, innovative PlayStation game. How the mighty have fallen.

Are you sure that maybe one or two of them... like the one's who were good at game design or something... didn't leave?

Or killed themselves in shame.

THQ sent me Dark Summit, which I am weary to play, as THQ console games typically are on the event horizon of the giant black hole of sucking.

Don't be too afraid of Dark Summit, Alan. The reviews aren't that bad...
Though I wouldn't necessarily pin my hopes of a good game on just IGN and Gamespot either. :)
