    I wonder how historically accurate this game is....

    Hmm - I am excited to play this game, but the storyline does seem pretty dissapointing... OMG avenge me, save my daughter!

    Looking pretty sexy screen wise though! People have complained about the faces, but I reckon they look great. I mean, if they wanted pure perfection then get a barbie doll or something.

    I never expect a decent storyline when it comes to video games. Even the best of games have terrible storylines, e.g Prey.

    I'd rather it were like the old days, where you were told your aim without shitty voice acting. Just a simple storyline that gives you the jist of what your doing, like Super Mario Bros, Sonic, etc.

    i think this sounds great, i like games invloving the mob in this cause the japanese mob, well better than the russian mob

    I also like the graphics the story is a bit dissappointing but who gives a monkey's willy if the story is swallow if the game rocks.

    this bad boy is getting added to my launch list beside LOZ, MP, ET and Wii Sports can't wait

    Good find jb

    Some of the screens look pretty awesome! Paricularly liking these:

    Story:
    You get to kill people with a sword and a gun using the Wii controller! Who cares what the rest is.

    Yep, the story sounds great to me.

    Maybe they'll throw in a twist and make it a great story. The girl could really be an alien and they are planning to take over the world. You just took out a bunch of bad guys for them and now they want to brainwash you into one of their zombie soldiers. You then get a laser sword and cool laser guns and drive a spaceship. You watch, it'll happen. Ubisoft can create a story when they need to!

    suppose you can say that metroid is about another world in danger and she save it

    Don't be ridiculous TAG. Obviously the common "twist" is the girl is the one trying to steal the sword in the first place by striking a deal with one of the groups.

    The graphics are looking a lot better, not so blurry.

    Man, the tats on that guy's body shows just how sharp textures can be on the Wii...

    His tats look like a jacket lolSmilie

    Those characters are pretty dodgy..

    this is comming together really well, i cant wait to play it. i will be honerable as i beat you all with my sword. please be multiplayer!!!!!

    Those characters are pretty dodgy..

    Agreed, but they aren't too bad. The environments and the katana look a lot better imo.

    I doubt there will be multiplayer, the game is being rushed as it is.

    Female assasinsSmilie. I really want a Kill Bill game now...

    I doubt there will be multiplayer, the game is being rushed as it is.

    It's been in development for some time now. Apparently there will be split screen multiplayer, but no Wi-Fi.

    Three people sword fighting?

    You'll organize a family council to defeat your enemy.

    Possible fighting alongside NPC's a la Halo?

    1"We're mentalist psychic Scots , which means we can read your mind. If you're lying, your head explodes and we laugh."

    Oh shit, that would be sweet!

    It could also be a very fucked up first person perspective on the players left hand...Smilie

    Three people sword fighting?

    No, that's the sword in your left hand you use for blocking.

    It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

    Yeah, it's the smaller defence sword. Looks like it's at that angle/position because it's just deflected the guy's katana.

    Nice work typing all that up jb, and it's looking better. I don't think Ubisoft will let us down with this one.

    I wonder if it will have UbiSoft's trademark '10 minutes of publisher and developer logos and then having to wait for the menu to load-bootup'...
