When the Playstation 2 hit shelves in late 2000, 3DO was quick to jump onto the bandwagon and throw whatever crap they could make onto the console.

The crap in question this time is Godai: Elemental Warriors, a 3D action adventure title. Besides the fact the main character is perhaps the most androgynous protagonist I've ever seen, or that the story makes absolutely no sense in the most Lynchian of Cryptic senses, you're apparently some ninja who is a master of the elements. And you're job is... Err... Revenge I suppose?

But the problem with Godai isn't that the design makes little sense but rather the game makes absolutely no dignifying use of the Playstation 2 hardware. From the moment the gameplay starts (as you'll see) Godai will chudder along, struggling to get any sort of frames despite the low quality N64 esque textures and character models. It really is abysmal. Because of this the controls are remarkably slow and unresponsive despite all the frustration and effort you might stab into the controller.

Eventually, when you do start fighting, you'll realise finally that there are no sort of combo chains or depth to the fighting whatsover. No depth in that not even a variety of conventional sharp edged weapons can fix the painfully dull combat. I suppose when 3DO fail to work on the basics like the controls, like the graphics that ultimately all you get is a bad game. No surprises there. This one is a turkey. Avoid. Unless you're like me and love exposing yourself to awful games, in which case, be my guest.
