Has anyone else besides my friends and me really get to play this game? This game was extremely well done, and it had tons of replayability.
It also had some depth going with it due to the presence of the unforgiving “Issen”. Sooner or later I will have to fid a way to get a hold of this game. 4 player experiene was really intense, and it brought a lot of mindgames to the table. Especially most of all the positioning of your character for nasty traps, and setups to force them to make a mistake in order for you to soul steal from them.
I think to a certain degree Megaman EXE, Gargant, Nobunaga, and I think maybe a few other characters were most definitely top tier. Umm… Ekei I think was also very dangerous due to his spear’s shoryuken had the potential to hit you twice, and hit behind him because of the wide-ass hitbox. Ekei also outranged most of the character roster. His big problem was he is very laggy, and is a very big target. Magoichi was most likely mid-tier because his keepaway game as so amn vicious, but his close-up game wasn’t really all there. Altthough my homeboy had many ways of going around his weaknesses in order to annoy me with his bullet poking tactics. I didn’t really play the game that often to really study the game mechanics on what was really gay, and what wasn’t. But I defintely remember being annoyed by Kaede, Zero, and Megaman EXE a lot. Kaede had some freakng deadly ass mix-ups especially off of her stun-kick, and her speed. I thnk that the spider demons were faster than her…I really need this gme back. I’m planning on looking for it today.
The “Issen” sort of balanced the game out IMO though. A well timed block-parry Issen or a risky Issen could change the tide very easily. I wonder if stun-kicks could be Issen’d? Discuss.
