Description of Windwalker

Sequel to the below-average Moebius, this game features vastly improved arcade-style combat and traditional RPG elements, set in the intriguing Chinese lore filled with demons and warlords. You play a lowly fisherman recruited by Moebius the Windwalker from the first game, who must follow his destiny by embarking on a journey into a fascinating world full of ninja assassins and magical creatures.

The annoying side-scrolling combat interface of Moebius has been substantially improved in this game, with smooth animations, a wide variety of acrobatic maneuvers you can perform, and excellent digitized sound. The story, however, --or a lack thereof-- is still a weak amalgam of Oriental lore and obscure superstition, and the hundreds of characters you can converse with hardly shed light on anything.

Still, it's a fun and different kind of RPG, and the types of character advancement you can gain (with such Oriental overtones as "balance" and "spirit") are a lot of fun to gain and watch how they affect your fighting skills and other characters.

Game has a lot of "where do I go? what do I do?" moments, but as you progress in it by exploring around and accomplishing things, you get a real sense of accomplishment. Combat is not smooth like Street Fighter II. It's more a live-action strategy, like Budokan, where you shuffle forward and backward, then find the right time to do a move. And, you have to know the exact distance a move strikes in, that way you don't under-shoot and miss, or (worse) over-shoot and just plow right into their counter attack. I got really fascinated by this game as a kid growing up (probably because the late 80's / early 90's had a lot of action movies with ninjas and kung fu). Overall, it's an entertaining game, but you'll either love it or hate it.

Windwalker was awesome! I really enjoyed playing this game. I remember spending a lot of time playing this on my Commodore 64. Wish my kids could get immersed in something like this. The Sims are so boring compared to a game like this! :)
