Chaotic: Shadow Warriors :: Xbox 360 Game Review
The chaotic land of Perim is little more chaotic than usual! Gather your party and prepare for battle in this game based on the popular TV series and card game
Recently, Perim has been under attack by a mysterious foe. After escaping from a besieged city, you begin to put together a party of characters from Chaotic, the popular card game and television series.
Random Encounters and Random Chaos
Chaotic: Shadow Warriors is a game that combines gameplay elements from action, RPG, and turn-based strategy games. You manage an army of characters from Chaotic while fighting enemies, interacting with over 40 different characters from both the card game and TV show including Chaor, Lord van Bloot, Rothar, and more.
As you fight, you can play quick time mini-games, matching button and analog stick presses and motion to add damage bonus to your attacks and mugic spells. There are about 30 different mugic spells and 50 attacks to choose from, with 30 attacks that are unique for specific characters. As you play, you will also collect battlegear that you can equip to your characters to improve their abilities in both single and multi-player modes.
You can play through the single player story mode or fight in online battle group on Xbox LIVE. Also available is local multi-player and tactical battles, where you fight with only 1-5 characters.
World of Chaos
The 3D environment and graphics of Perim is pretty good. There are 8 worlds to explore in Perim, including the Underworld, Overworld, and Danian's Territory. The story for the single player mode was written with 4Kids entertainment, meaning it flows and works well with the TV series. Also, all of the original voice actors are used for the cut-scenes.
Which Version to Get?
The Xbox version of the game is fairly solid. The only version that is really different is the DS version of the game, which features more characters from the card game and TV show. However, the gameplay in the DS game is entirely different and the graphics are, of course, not as good.
ESRB Rating: E 10+
