If you're looking for redeeming qualities there really aren't any. Well to the fans of the original series anyways. Bout the only consistent thing I hear these days is most people agree the art direction was pretty well done. That's about it. Since the game wasn't marketed to series fans there really isn't much for folk like us to say. We weren't the demographic that NT was trying to target.
"Foolishness Donte, foolishness! No one can have this series. It's mine. It belongs to a true son of Sparda!"
