    JW has registered their disagreement about the genres applied to this game
    I would definitely consider this a hack and slash game as it has gameplay that emphasizes combat with melee based weapons (such as swords or blades). You are also a small group of characters facing off against medium to large groups of enemies

    Holy I forgot this game existed😂 I should really go back to some of my old games I haven't touched yet.

    I agree with JW though on this. From what I remember it plays a lot like Ryse Son of Rome but with the graphics that only looked good when I was a kid

    Play the game and then you'll see its a hack and slash, the puzzles are very short and don't come up too often.

    I also think action adventure is used to often when its hard for people to recognize the games main mechanics or because its for this instance, is not as hack and slashy as ninja gaiden or because it's a kids game. I played Ninja Gaiden Yaiba just before this and in that game there is a little of platforming and some miner puzzles, but I wouldn't consider that action adventure as the main mechanic is focused around Hack And Slash gameplay. Ninja Gaiden Yaiba Is also just as linear as this game. So when compared side to side their not actually much different apart from the difficulty, humour, maturity, and audience.

    No make sense, hack n slash it's a core system mechanic.. basically the number of enemies at the same time, and the possibility to use different weapons and upgrade them and your character. The progression of the game has nothing to do with it if it's linear or if it's a multiplayer so on...

    My quest is because I didn't saw that upgraded aspect on the gameplay footage I saw, and I didn't saw too many enemies encounters, was more specific sections of the game and not a core system mechanic like Yaiba, when you have too many different systems it's label as action-adventure and not because it's hard to people recognize

    I'm Quoting you as you are the genre moderator, to receive the notification.

    Following the TA definition

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    and watching 1 and a half hours of gameplay https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avE4ZTSGIWA&t=6928s&...

    You see that the strong point of the game is the storyline with the cutscenes. You have a lot of collectibles/puzzles (The whole game is about that), the platforms to pass sections, and the enemies sections.

    There are no upgrades as hack n slash TA genre definition "Upgrading of either weapons or characters is generally a strong point of gameplay." You only unlock the finishing moves, like beat up games like batman and mad max

    It's impossible to classify it as hack n slash, it's an action adventure

    'generally' a strong point of gameplay. A game can have a small amount of puzzles in it and not be considered a puzzle game or an action-adventure due to such. If they're such a strong factor for this game, the games genres can be structured/split into both HacknSlash and Puzzle, rather than throwing it back into Action-Adventure when it can be so easily deconstructed. Same for other elements you've mentioned as platforming, in which I feel is too small of a focus to be considered a strongpoint for a genre addition. Also, cutscenes/story are a staple of basically any game ever. Even the Dynasty Warriors series has puzzles/cutscenes/stories to them, in which they're just HacknSlash games.

    So should be a beat up, let's deconstruct it

    Can't wait to add hack n slash on assassins creed games too

    Remove: hack n slash
    Add: Beat 'em up


    You even have duels on the game, can be more close-quarter them that

    Beat 'em Up games involve close-quarters combat against generally small to medium sized groups of relatively weak enemies which usually must be defeated before you can progress. Generally weapon choice is limited or non-existent and character/skill upgrade progression is minimal.

    Been keeping an eye on this thread for a little while now, didn't chime in because I played the game a decade ago... but I think comparing the game to AC is the best choice.

    If you compare this game to AC, which we can all agree IS NOT hack n slash, and then to Dynasty Warriors, which we can all agree IS a hack n slash, IMO this game definitely feels more like AC so I don't think this game is hack n slash either.

    Imo it's not hack n slash too, it's an action adventure but it's fine if its classified as hack n slash cause it's one more game to hack n slash genre so one more completed game of this genre to me laugh

    I'm open for discussion from others

    For note: Assassin Creed games (older ones, anyway) are listed as Stealth and Open World, they're not even listed as Action-Adventure, so using that a comparison to Pirates of the Caribbean, which isn't Stealth and Open World, doesn't do much.

    So some assassin's creed game should be hack n slash as this one?

    Fair point.

    I wasn't thinking about AC's genre necessarily when I made that post, but the game play. Yes it's a stealth game, but should you choose to play in a non-stealthy way - ie, kill everyone - then the gameplay is very similar to this game I think.
