8.8 / 10.0

Its tragic story of broken people fighting on the wrong side of history makes it utterly compelling, and its well-tuned combat more than makes up for its lack of interesting environments. Simply put, this is a tale to heartbreaking to miss, or to forget.

A much more interesting story and lead character than usual for the series, but the weak script and aging combat system fail to make the most of it.
