REVIEWS Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

What do these ratings mean?

This game is the greatest game I've ever played, yes that's pretty mind boggling considering all the new games coming out for the consoles, but I'll stick to it for the rest of my life.  This is the first game that acutally immersed me into it, not by letting me create my own character, but no, letting me live in another in a time that's similar to ours.  Hearing the man who made this game, CliffyB, made me realize that he and his team, busted their ass, not only to bring you a graphically beautiful game, but also one that had enough background story and information to make you feel like you're a part of it.

It isn't perfect, as many of times I've become extremely pissed off at the teammate AI, but everything has it's flaws.  I never said the game was perfect, but it tries to reach perfection and is at the brink of it, but little things like the team AI, repetitiveness and such hurt it.

To me I think it is visually mindblowing, the voiceacting is dead on, and the story is incredible, grant it, in the game you don't really get the full story, but if you bought the collecter's edition, and like me, had enough drunkin time to read it, it really provides everything you need to know to understand.

People are able to give you their opinions and that's just mine, you can disagree or agree, but my point of view...this game is the ****
