Presentation:

The presentation of the game is quite unique as the whole game is presented as a movie/TV program.  There are even TV commercials in between stages of the game.  It was also nice added feature to see the old film reel effects added to the opening sequence and continue screen when you have to restart a level.

 

Graphics:

The game doesn’t utilize the latest and most realistic graphics engine available on the market.  However, the graphics are very fitting and appropriate to replicate the look and feel of a exaggerated violent Kill Bill  type film which makes for extremely entertaining visuals.

   

Gameplay:

The slow motion and combat system truly reminds the player of the action scenes from a John Woo film.  As you get more experienced with the game, the player will try to execute combat using combinations of gun, sword, and acrobatics in a more complicated style to achieve more game points.  With the right combinations the player can fight his enemies while running off the walls, sliding across the floor, and swinging from poles.  It is straight out fun to play

 

Sound:

The entertaining dialogs within the game made by enemies are extremely funny especially with the heavy Chinese accents.  The voice acting of Eliza Dushku brings definition to Rubi Malone’s action and emotion.  The 70’s style music in the game is a perfect match for the action portrayed within the game.  The music chosen for each scene gives the game a mysterious and action appeal.

 

Longevity:

The game has a good replay value factor to it.  As you continue to play the game you are awarded with points to upgrade your character.  You can improve your acrobatic attacks all the way to increasing your damage and how fast your character can attack.  Mostly, it is entertaining to plow through hordes of enemies at once.  It is one of those games that you would put into your system without hesitation.
