I will rarely criticize a company based on a game that I have not yet tried, but I have to say - I am sick and tired of the dearth of uninspired names that game designers are throwing around out here.

"Hellcats"? "Soul Reapers"?

Ughhhhhh.

Let's hope that all the shadow-assassins and hell-knights of the MMO world have a big ol' gangfight with all the soul-reapers and death-champions, and none of them are left to tell the tale.

The dark, ominous, tale of fate and mana and soul and blood and darkness.

Look at it like this: this is the anachronistic, medieval fantasy version of Streets of Rage/Final Fight/Cadillacs and Dinosaurs/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles/-Your favorite arcade beat 'em up here, if you were ever so inclined to play one of those games.

And do as I do if you loved any of the aforementioned: ignore the cliché, irrelevant story and just enjoy yourself.

I must say, this game has gotten me away from my shameful WoW addiction long enough to consider making the full time switch.

It really is a blast to just play, but I recommend grabbing a few friends and hopping on the Ventrilo to revive some of the classic brawler feel. Just doesn't feel the same with cold, distant PuGs filled with silent strangers.
