Why it sucks
- Simple and repetitive combat.
- Way too easy.
- Disjointed story.
- Obscure puzzles.
- Swords and other weapons break easily.
- The cast of the film is here but it wastes the talents of them especially Ron Perlman.
The game received "generally unfavorable reviews" on all platforms according to video game review aggregator Metacritic. While some critics praised the combat style, most of them complained that the game had repetitive game play and that the graphics weren't up to current console generation standards.
TeamXbox stated that if this game had been made for last-gen consoles, it would have fared better, but since it wasn't, it loses the appeal. X-Play gave it a 1 out of 5, and Hardcore Gamer gave it 2.5 out of 5
