A one of a kind combat experience and Platinum’s most well-rounded adventure to date. A killer combo in every sense of the term.

  • A truly original combat system with a rhythm all of its own
  • Puzzling and platforming makes for a well-rounded adventure
  • Completionists will be ticking off achievements for weeks
  • Feels like a greatest hits of Platinum’s most playful ideas
  • A few technical hiccups in handheld mode
5 / 5
