Spectacular art design.
Excellent voice work.
Depth of character development that most movies fail to achieve these days is a valuable asset for RPG fans looking to journey through a kung fu epic.
Flaws in alignment system.
A few annoying bugs.
An unsatisfying combat system (which a kung fu game canít really afford) and slightly featureless graphics effectively halves the potential market.
