This is one of the best games I've ever played. I actually played the series in reverse because my friend had this game but not the other two. Anyway, despite the Michael Jackson dance…thing, the story is pretty good. The songs are awesome and the action is even better. Especially with the interchangeable fighting styles. My favorite was Swordmaster but I have to say that Royalguard s**ked. The game was nice and long and the story actually made sense.
The only thing that is keeping me from giving it a better grade is that it was way to easy. When people told me that I would be playing the hardest game in the world for the first eight hours, I expected to be playing for at least 14 before beating it, not five like it took. Granted I did use cheats on my first play through, but after I beat the game I deleted my memory for it and beat it again without cheats so I stick by my statement.
All in all you have a great game no matter what.
