Overall: Wow. I never thought I would play such a terrible game in every way in my life, let alone on the Xbox. this game looked bad, played bad, and was just boring. Do not rent it, do not buy it, don't even look at it on the shelf.
Gameplay: Pretty bad. Learning new moves and stuff like that was kinda a good idea but it took so long and the boring combos you got made the game very frustrating to play. At times when I was moving the character it seemed like he was moving on a path which was squared. Not smooth or rounded at all.
Graphics: To me this game looked like a bad ps1 game. Square characters, bad colors I think, in every way this just looked plain bad.
Sound: Had the good ol' Bruce Lee sounds in it which was good lol. At least they did that right. But the rest didn't really excite me and the sounds he made got old because it was very repetetive.

Overall: omg... I played game for about 3 hours. I'm no n00b to gaming, and I still found the controls to be difficult to grasp. Locking onto a target and keeping him in front of you was almost a task in itself.
Gameplay: I can't really even put anything here. I found no appeal to it what so ever. Find yourself a better game than this (135 words enough?)
Graphics: The graphics look good, could use some more anti-aliasing. Can't find to much wrong here. Good enough for me (100 char thing again).
Sound: Couldn't find anything wrong with the sound. Fair. 100 characters going on here, I can't stand this!
Suggestions: Man, you shouldn't have rushed the development of this game, better controls would have done this title justice.

Overall: This game isn't that bad I like the beat em' up action in it it is fun for me I know this is just my opinion I think it is a fairly good game.
Gameplay: The gameplay is pretty simple you punch with the A button and you kick with the B buttonand if you press them in diferent combinations you do do different moves.
Graphics: The graphics are pretty good if you watch closely when bruce is moving you can see that his muscles move very well but there is this lad who is named the dragon lady her hair clips threw her dress alot.
Sound: the sound is okay bruce when he fights he makes very weird noises they almost sound like a chicken! the voice acting in it is'nt the best he doesn't really talk with expression in the cutscenes.

Overall: This Game looked awesome, now i understand why they say "Dont Judge a book by its cover" This game has 1 point to it, see how fast you can press any button to kick or hit anyone in a match. Waste of money and time to spend, altho 1 of my only 4 games, it completly doesnt even have a topic.. its classified as worse than ET on Atari!

Gameplay: Verry Confusing, not like all the rest cause all the rest actually come alot closer to a story line unlike this, graphics should be better and this should never came out of warehouse
Graphics: Get Glitchy at begininng, Could look alott better and needs more of a cinmematic and climatic visual look to it, not like Mortal Combat, but mortal combat actually showed true work in it!
Sound: Sound is probibly the best, the sounds continusly keep being the same, nothin like herein sku sku ku ku ku ka 500 times in one match
Suggestions: Dont Try to make a sequal to this, just take it off shelves

Overall: This game looked as though it could have chalenged DOA 3 for the title of best fighting game on the Xbox, but unfortunately, it has turned into one of the worst games on the Xbox. This game is lacking in every way. There is only one character and if the great man was alive today he could kick the crap out of the makers of this game. There is no multiplayer. The graphics are pitiful and the sound is boring. There is 2 things you can do in Brice Lee. There is practice mode, where you practice moves, unfortunately there is not alot of these. And there is story mode, which invloves you running around beating up loads of bad guys until you advance to the next level.
Gameplay: This game was fun for the first 2 minutes, until you reealize that it is boring, repetative and there are barely any moves or combos. The controls work but there is not nearly enough to keep you interested, in between levels there is a shop to buy more moves and lives but this is not nearly enough, to make you want to keep playing.
Graphics: This must be the worst looking game ever, the animation is slow and jerky, the levels and level design is dreadful, this becomes apparent in the jungle level. Even the opening movie for the game looks horrible, this belongs back on the Sega Megadrive.
Sound: Boring, lots of strange sounding fighting noises, the music all over is crap and since it is such a horrible game this does not help, but it cant hurt something that is this dreadful.
Suggestions: I wish Bruce Lee was alive today so he put his foot up your "you know w

Overall: Why was this game ever made? Oh, that's right, Universal was trying to make money.Seriously this is one of the worst games I have ever played. It completley and utterly soils the name of Bruce Lee.
Gameplay: Was this game even tested? The controls barley function. I pressed Y to attack repeatadly and it maybe registered 2 of those presses. And why do all these badguys look like they are out of place? I swear when you make it to the city a few levels in some of the bad guys seem a wee bit out of place. (If you can make it that far you will know what I mean)
Graphics: You know what? 8-bit NES graphics are more appealing to me than this pile of trash. Graphical flicker runs rampant through this game. The character models are POOR and don't get me started about the environments. Animations choppier than the ocean during a hurricane and just... ARRRRRRRG!

Sound: Wow, the game sounds as bad as it looks. Voice actings pathetic as is the music. My theory is Ronin payed some dude with a synthesizer 5 bucks to make the music and a few random people off the street to do the voices.
Suggestions: Ronin, give up. You guys are Officialy the worst development house on the PLANET.

Overall: I am also another fan of Bruce Lee and when i saw this for twenty bucks i thought awsome bruce lee rocks the game should. But i lied i only played it maybe for an hour before i thought how pathetic it was especially with the mouth and sound movements, maybe they were trying to mimic some old 70's movies but still i think that was not intended to be that way, don't buy this game even if it is free i caution you it blows.
Gameplay: I absolutely was not impressed at all. What is up with purchasing moves collecting coins and i hated it especially when i had to redo a whole level.
Graphics: Visuals were ok but I just didn't like how everything was the same and how untextered alot of the stuffed seemed, i just plane liked the fog or trees but that is about it.
Sound: I can't stand the voice stuff. It drove me crazy, but some of the enviromental sounds were pretty good, i guess.
Suggestions: I can not believe you did this to bruce, the best kung fu master ever and yet you make this cheap little game that mocks him in every single way possible, you guys suck and i hope you don't make xbox look any worse with anymore of your crap games.

Date reviewed: April 13, 2003.

Overall: Good Arcade'style game. Not the type of game to look at as a "counsel performance game" so to speak as it does not utilize any full potential of the system. Fun to play and easy to master. After the initial excitement however, very little to come later...not a long term thriller. It has a fairly good, but now where near excellent or detailed, story line in which the character develops himself and avenges his schools honor as he retrieves a stolen heirloom.
Gameplay: You fight arcade-style...meaning as you progress through a set path in a level enemies pop out and you take them down locking on to one at a time. Don't look for any oppertunities to explore cause its not going to happen. I realize this isn't a "high performing" game or a game to awww at, but at least have respect for its arcade roots and fun gaming for what it is.
Graphics: Ok, here is where we start to decline in the performance of the game. I will allow any criticizm of the game to appear here and in the sound category. WARNING, NOT THE BEST VISUALS. lacking in this area, perhaps because it was not made to be a gaming spectacle.
Sound: Again, criticize away. This game lacks in original sound and different sounds and sound schemes throughout are not at all present. Do not buy this game for its visuals or sounds.
Suggestions: None, its a fine game for what it is intended...a fighting, arcade-style game.

Overall: The idea that I'm Bruce Lee in itself was enough to draw me in; however, after a few hours, I think I bored myself enough to not care whether I ever play this game again. It just got too repetitive, and button mashing games are fine if you aren't given the extra challenge of confusing camera angles, 3 lives per level (so you have to start THE ENTIRE LEVEL OVER if you die...give me checkpoints dammit and just start me from there), and this crap with purchasing moves. Overall, I was very disappointed with this game.
Gameplay: Good: Lots of fighting (FYI, this is also a bad thing, because that's all there is, and it gets monotonous), and lots of moves, which is fun with any game if you sit down and try to learn them.

Bad: I just spend $50 (actually, I rented it, but let's pretend) on a game in which I'm Bruce Lee, but you only give me nunchukus (however that's spelled) randomly and only a few times throughout the entire game? Personally, I don't want to have to "earn" skills for a game like this. Sure it makes it more challenging, but not in a good way. I say, give me all the moves and whatever weapon I feel like using, and make the enemies more difficult, or give them guns or something. This thing where you kill people to get coins to purchase moves was a load of crap and got on my nerves after a while. One thing I absolutely LOATHE about this (and any other game I just dropped the price of my phone bill on) is being given 3 lives to complete a level, and if you don't, you have to start the level all over. This started happening to me around the third level (snicker if you will, I'm not an extremely skilled gamer, I just enjoy playing), and it pissed me off royally. Smells to me like a zany plot by the developers, who probably figured "Hey, the next level is pretty much the same as this one, so why not make them play it again? They won't know the difference." I know there's other games that do this, but maybe I got spoiled on Halo, where there's checkpoints scattered throughout the level and you just return to the last one if you die. I don't mind playing certain PARTS again, but not the whole !&%$@#* thing. Because I die a lot :)
Graphics: The backgrounds were pretty cool, and the characters looked great from a distance. Up close, however, it didn't excite me any. I'm pretty sure I'm alone in that department though because in general I'm still not happy with how humans look in video games. I guess "blocky" is the term, if that's even a word. Don't get me wrong, what the graphics people can do is amazing and I know I sure as hell couldn't do it. But I'm still waiting for the day that an up close view of a video game human's makes me do a double take and wonder if it's real or not.
Sound: Wasn't really paying attention because I was busy getting cramps in my hand from mashing buttons. I'm an avid Bruce Lee fan and loved the sounds that he made while fighting, but that's all I really noticed.
Suggestions: Just let me be Bruce Lee and quit making me have to pick up coins and other crap. Give me weapons and all of my moves, and be more creative with the enemies if you want to create a challenge. Don't make the bosses fight the same as the thugs, and don't force me to lock onto one guy if I'm being attacked by 5 others. Be original for me...I'm not the one being paid to make these games. I just want mind-numbing fun.

Overall: I love martial arts, martial arts games, Bruce Lee, fighting games in general... This game unfortunately has none of the above.
Gameplay: Gameplay? You mean more like Crapplay, because the playability of this game is none. Whoever decided to make martial art fighting into a "Lock on one enemy at a time" should be castrated and buried with this game. Horrible controls, no skill needed, linear fighting, I was bored by the time the Title screen loaded.
Graphics: Please, give the creators of South Park a call because I was more impressed with "Fight Evil Cartman" than with the models in this game. Looks like a rip off from the original Virtual Fighter arcade. Perhaps you should look at some real pictures next time when creating characters
Sound: SOUND?! Who the hell associates Bruce Lee with some rapper intro song?? And the constant yet annoying Bruce Lee wannabe signature fighting sounds remind me more of the local Chinese restaurant than the master himself.
Suggestions: Umm... no actually, if you haven't figured out by now how much of a horrible job you have done me telling you won't change much. Keep on being ignorant and slapping together games, you sure fooled a lot of us this time.

Overall: What caught my eye was teh title . Bassicaly you're the master himself. A gang of noturous thugs murdered your father and they went and pissed bruce off.
Gameplay: Hell yeah I love this game is really incredible. you can hear Bruce's crys and bones snapping and everything. It's really bad ass!!!
Graphics: The graphics clearly use the Xbox'es power. The mannerisms of Bruce Lee are so life like. The environments are beatiful, too bad you can't go exploring
Sound: The sound is probably the best feature of the game. With Dolby digital 5.1 and the black eyed peas, the sound is off the hook!!!
Suggestions: Awesome game , if only it was like a rpg fighting game that you can play online with not only just Bruce Lee but people like Jet Li, Jackie Chan and other famous Martial artists.

Overall: The only appeal to this game is the Bruce Lee license, which should be taken away from them for making this steaming pile of crap. If not for the license, this game would've dropped off the sales charts the first week. Horrible graphics, major graphic glitches, terrible gameplay, hideous voice acting and contrived, boring story make this one of the biggest stinkers on the Xbox IMO. I'd rather play Kabuki Warriors.
Gameplay: Simple button-mashing, completely linear, non-interactive environments.. Bruce Lee is like an Atari 2600 game translated to the N64 and left unfinished as a demo. Ok, a little harsh. But just a little. This game is an insult.
Graphics: Horribly graphics. Low-poly models. Major graphic glitches make this game seem like a rough demo. I think this game literally could've used a couple more months of polishing just in the graphics department.
Sound: Terrible voices. The voice for Bruce Lee was nothing short of insulting. And yet the sound is probably its best feature.
Suggestions: You should be ashamed for releasing this terrible game. And gamers should be ashamed for buying it. My biggest Xbox disappointment.

Overall: Appeal....Bruce Lee's name attached to a fighting game is appealing, but wait until you see it. This is one of the worst console games in history. The XBOX system deserves SO MUCH more that this garbage.
Gameplay: I've played better games on the Genesis system, maybe even Colecovision. This is simply a two button masher on rails. You move through levels with no control, and enemies stand in line to fight you. Absolutely no time was spent on trying to make this game worthwhile.
Graphics: The graphics are not bad for a 64 bit system. But on the XBOX, the makers should be ashamed. I would not allow this game to be released for the system if I were Microsoft....this game is a disgrace to the technology in the console.
Sound: Eeeyyyaaa! That's about it. Yet again, another aspect of this poor game that fails miserably. I'd rather hear Fran Drescher than this game.
Suggestions: Quit your day job! If this is the best you can do, your in the wrong line of work. This title was shown on the original box of the XBOX, over a year ago. You couldn't improve this game at all in over a year. Bruce Lee would be so ashamed. I acn't believe his estate licensed his must have cost you a fortune. Look for this game on the clearance rack soon.

Date reviewed: July 29, 2002.

Overall: First of all i must say that Bruce Lee : Quest of the dragon has been created in honor of the most amazing martial artist of all time - Bruce Lee. In fact, Bruce Lee was a legend for us but this game is no where close from that. Let's return to my duty ! As i do my review habitually i will tell you the story. Bruce Lee, recently retired from the British Secret Service, has been called back to duty to aid in investigating the Black Lotus, an underground organization. The Black Lotus is involved in international weapons smuggling and in underground research on a super-steroid chemical compound who supposed to create a new race of soldier. But this time it's also personnal because the father of Bruce Lee was been kidnapped by Dragon Lady, the leader of Black Lotus and Bruce's deadly enemy and a relic was been stolen from the monastery. In conclusion, Bruce Lee: Quest of the dragon have a strong story but with no multiplayer or with nothing else than some stupid challenge we can't absolutly give a chance to him. Don't try to rent or buy it !
Gameplay: In Bruce Lee: Quest of the dragon you must press A to punch or use your nunchaku, B to kick, X to block, Y to use your special moves, A + X to counter and B + Y to throw.
Also you can use the Black button and the White one to make Bruce in a Dragon Rage and use his taunt.
This part is ok because it's easy but what i really dislike in the gameplay is when you are moving, i mean this is too linear. You can summarize the gameplay by walk or fight, too simple to be good for me. Ok through the game they add some mini-challnehe like Brawl or Time Challenge but who's care ? At least you got more than 150 moves to do.
Graphics: Bruce Lee was been done by Universal Interactive ( Crash Bandicoot, Lord Of The Rings ) so my mind was not positive about that game and i was right. In fact they are great but they are so bright that you could see them perfectly, if they could be clearer i am sure that this game will be better. The video also suck in all the way, the only thing that was cool visualy was the character.
Sound: There no real music here because you are able to heard a couple of song when the video are playing but when you are in game you can't heard something that look like music. You know i don't want music when i don't play because habitually i don't care of it ! The sound are also cheap because Bruce Lee's verbal taunt when fighting is annoying for our ear and when he talk we can't heard him.
Suggestions: I want deeper graphic, better gameplay and a multiplayer. Also check the sound review to have more suggestions.

Overall: I am toatly into this game,i love the fighting system an the arcade feel the game reminds me of the old ninja turtles game.Expect this time your Bruce lee instead of some dumb turtle.
Gameplay: the gameplay is top notch,amazing fighting combos,an fast as lighting punches make you feel as if your real Bruce Lee,i allso like the coin power up system,which you collect coins by killing the bad guy,an you get to buy your power ups with a choice from new moves to heath or diffrent rank.
Graphics: i was a little upset with the look off the game considering the power of the xbox,but the game still looks great,the cut scense are very pretty allso.
Sound: the sound in this game is truely amazing i had my streo cranking an i was on an outdoor level an i thought i was really outdoors,but bruce lee voice can get annoying after a couple of hours into the game.
Suggestions: if they could of put a 4 player mode into the game to play with some of my friends

Date reviewed: July 17, 2002.

Overall: Overall, this game is not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. True, this game is not without faults but I still had fun playing it. Being a long time fan of Bruce Lee movies, the moves, techniques and gestures in the game are truly authentic. My biggest gripe is the camera angle. At times, an object in the environment will block the view of Bruce while the "bad guy" beats you to a pulp. Moving around during the fight is also hard, especially when you want to switch between the left & right side of your opponent.
Gameplay: The action is fast, hard-hitting and non-stop. This is definitely a "button smashing" game, albeit in a good way. However, when fighting the Bosses, you have to use strategy and not just trade blows with them. Not only are the Bosses vulnerable to different techniques, but you also have to vary the techniques that work or else they will just block your moves. What really saves this game, in my opinion, is the storyline. It isn't some cheesy plot commonly found in most martial arts games. The plot makes you want to keep clearing levels so you can find out what happens next.
Graphics: I really have no complaints about the graphics. Bruce Lee, the main Bosses, thugs and ninjas look great. The background was especially well done. Unfortunately, this game doesn't allow you to explore the environment (which is another one of my gripes).
Sound: The sound definitely could've been a lot better. The background noises are okay, but the other sound effects become repetitive. The soundtrack during the fighting is monotonous and boring.
Suggestions: I have 3 suggestions:

(1) fix the camera angle
(2) include better soundtracks
(3) allow for more interactions with the environment

How any reviewer could give this
game a postive rating is beyond
me. This game will be
remembered as one of the wrost
xbox games of all time. In fact, I
don't even suggest renting it, it's
just that bad. DON'T WASTE
Gameplay: What gameplay? Early Gameboy
games had more gameplay than
this thing. A complete
button-masher with the worst
fighting system ever developed.

have a really wierd look about

Overall: This is the worst game I have ever played.There are better 8-bit nintendo games then this. Normally, I try to stay away from negative reviews and only offer ones for games I like but this title truely deserves a bad review.
Gameplay: What makes this a horrible title is that the game revovles around the same idea the entire game. You have bruce lee and then you just fight guys. It wouldn't have been so bad except for the fact that this type of game play suggests to me that the developers were thinking, ok this will be easy and we can make some quick money off of it. That personally turns me off from a game.
Graphics: The graphics are terible as well. Everything looks the same and the way in which you are restricted to movement reminds me almost of a bad 2-D mortal kombat/teenage muntant nija turtles mix. Not to say that those titles are bad, which they aren't but for the x-box it's just not appropriate. Also the characters appear to me that the developers spent most of the time on Bruce Lee and then just quickly did the others not one looked like it took adavantage of the X-box's capabilities.
Sound: This I think is my biggest pet peeve of the game. Everytime I try to hit or kick or whatever Bruce Lee makes this sound that resembles a turkey, now I don't know if that was intended or not but it certainly gave me a headache. I have seen some of the movies and that in no way is close to a human sound.
Suggestions: In a nut shell, lets just say that the creators of Bruce Lee are lucky, X-boxaddict doesn't allow for ratings below 1.0 Let's just hope we can use this title as a learning curve and see what not to do next time.

Overall: This game was really under rated in some people reviews. This is a great game for people who love Bruce check out my point of views for loving this game.
Gameplay: The Gameplay keeps you into your TV and on point. The chucks parts of the game is cool as s#!%. The nonstop fighting is the biggest element of this game. And the fact that it has all of Bruce's moves from the Chest Dive to the Back Breaker.
Graphics: The Graphics are good but could be a lot better. It's not Bruce himself that part looks nice the enemies look good too. Its the back ground that could have been a lot better.
Sound: Now this is the BEST part of the game. Just hearing all the Bruce sounds keeps you glued to the Television. I don't know if there could be a better sounding Bruce.

Overall: Thank god for Blockbuster's "Game Freedom Pass" otherwise I would've wasted 6 bucks on this peice of garbage. Words cannot express how horrible this game is!
Gameplay: There's not much depth in gameplay. You can move..... punch (sort of).... and kick. You "buy" Bruce's new moves. Worst idea in gaming history... no wait I take that back this whole game is the worst idea in gaming history! I've never played Kabuki Warriors, but I bet it's better than this!
Graphics: The XBA said this game has nice graphics... Um No. Great background graphics, if that's what he meant. Horrible character models! When people bend their leg, thier knee looks so sharp, it should be his weapon. his leg muscle is bigger than is whole body almost. I'll give the graphics of the background props, but thats it.
Sound: Sounds like a 1 year old crying... except a much much higher sound! I muted my TV, If there was music you cannot hear it over his little screams.
Suggestions: Keep the background effects. Lose the character models. Add more moves than about 15. 60 would be good. Jahn Lee in DOA3 uses Jeet Kune Do and he has about 60-70 moves. Bruce Lee has about 15-20.

Overall: This is an outstanding game!!! Bruce really comes alive especially vocally!!! It's like a resurrection!! I became a Bruce Lee fan all over again!! This is a must buy for all true gamers!!
Gameplay: Gameplay is excellent. All of the moves are well created and Bruce moves fluidly. The bad is Bruce should be allowed to roam more. I guess this keeps one from punking out and running from a brawl. Gameplay can be reduced to button mashing but, kicking a multitude of hindparts all at once is a beautiful thing!
Graphics: Beautifully done. Of course it is an X-Box game. The scenery is lovely. It is not Halo level or Hunter however, it's !&%$@#* close. Could you imagine DOA graphics on this game ?
Sound: WOOOOOOO!!!!!!! AYYYAHHHHHHHHH!!! WUTAHHHHH!!!! Get it! It's Bruce baby!!! The sound is all the way live and exact! The music is pretty good too but nothing out does the joyful moans of wiping someones jaw with your foot and fist( not necessarily in that order) Add on the 5.1 and it's almost indescribable.
Suggestions: The only suggestion I have is let him roam a little more. Sometimes it's frustrating to be restricted to a specific area. Other than that keep it Bruce!!!

Might even keep it if i dont get an exeptionally good deal..
Gameplay: This game is hard to learn but most games are anyways. There is two training modes to try out some bruce lee style beats which is fun. Then the story mode which is very very fun to play. Its kinda button smashing (hold L press a,a,a,a,a,a,a,x,x,a,x,a,x) so thats a bit weerd.
Graphics: The visuals make me laugh haha, it doesnt look like bruce lee i nthe game it looks like a 5 year old with big strong legs...hahaha. Thats why i am given this a 5. O well the environment enimies bruce and everything is very well done.
Sound: a Iam bruce lee ultimate !&%$@#* kika!!! whoops *grunt grunt* anyways.. This game ahs the best sound ive ever heard i beat up sum dudes say my battle cries fall outta my chair....whoops off topic again. Ok, but this sound is great, the talking the cries all of it!!! AWSOME JOB

Overall: It's Bruce Lee, one of the greatest fighters of all time, if not THE greatest. I wonder what he would have done to the developers of this "game" if he were still alive. Sadly, this game falls short of a legend, and once again adds to the long list of games that are horribly made from a license. I guess it's up to Buffy the Vampire Slayer to finally end the trend that all games made from licenses are bad. And nothing Fishy here, this game needs some improvements, but its not the worst game on the XBOX (thats not saying a lot). And no, I can hold my own against these enemies. The game is not good, period. I guess some people can't see that, and are too busy defending it that they don't realize it's not worth 10$, let alone 50$. I feel like this game was too easy, and I don't suck at games. Yeah, I'm sure if I had the brain of a monkey and a half, I could have fun with this game... the first time around. There is no reason to pick it up again. Anyone who likes this game must be a regular at Blockbuster, because this is a RENTAL, if not a "stay away from forever" game. So, no I don't suck and yes I can hold my own against enemies (considering the enemies here are easy as heck, I didn't realize Bruce had it so easy, no wonder he's unbeatable, because if his enemies were as easy as these, I would be unbeatable too.) If you want to ask the question, "What killed Bruce Lee?", well, if he were still alive today, this game's horrendous quality would sure be the cause of death.
Gameplay: The gameplay in this game is pretty simple. A beat-em-up mostly, no puzzle solving, at least I haven't noticed anything. You BUY special moves, which is a pretty stupid idea if you ask me. You should be getting exp, or you should start with everything, you ARE Bruce Lee for God's sake. I'm pretty sure Bruce didn't buy his moves, because that would totally ruin his whole idea of training and whatnot. Buying moves? Maybe if this were another game, but this is Bruce Lee. They did not do much right to fit what we know of Bruce Lee, a bad mistake.
Graphics: After playing this game, I started wondering if this was XBOX. The graphics are very, very bad. Choppy and unsatisfying, this put's the XBOX to shame since Kabuki Warriors, although not as bad as that game either. The areas around are somewhat good & large, but nothing special, and it doesn't touch the graphics of Halo or DOA. It's like they touched up some models with colors and thats it.
Sound: The sound is probably the only good thing this offers. Sound samples of Bruce's yells and calls are very great. They add what the game can't, a feeling of playing like Bruce Lee. The sound is very simple, but not as realistic as I was hoping. Sounds from enemies and the voice acting are nice, and so are attack hits and crashes, very nice. Let me emphasize, the sound is the only thing good about the game, nothing like hearing the yells and screams from Bruce Lee.
Suggestions: Try not to upset the spirit of Bruce Lee once again, he'll get his revenge. Get Buffy the Vampire Slayer when it comes out, then follow that and maybe you'll make a better game off Bruce Lee. After playing it longer, I realized I have no choice but to trade this in for something else. Hopefully people won't make the mistake of buying this game, in which YOU developers should have spent a little more time on. How can you ruin Bruce Lee like this? :(

Overall: This game is a blast to play- if you can stand the first half-hour of being really crappy at the game. After you figure out the feel of Bruce and his movements, you will be an addict. This game has that arcade feel of Hunter mixed with the intensity of DOA3. You will fall in love with this game once you become competant in the game's "art"
If anyone complains about this game- its because they suck at it. Truly. Bruce has some awesome moves,...perhaps the person who gives it a bad review hasn't quite figured out how to hold his own against swarms of enemies...
Gameplay: At first, Bruce feels kinda akward- but that feeling soon fades once you begin to get a grip on the game's mechanics. Nunchuck battles are my personal favorite- and I enjoy how one can hit in 4 diferent directions while standing still. Not to mention at least 70+ moves (seriously) and tons of "multiple" (attacking several enemies at once) moves. This game is simply, a blast to play.
Graphics: A step below the quality of Hunter- but the polygons are there. Its enough to pull you in- sometimes the game can be gorgeous.
Sound: Great sound. Love the Dolby sound too. All teh "waaaaaa" sounds are right on and reminicent of the golden days of the dragon himself.
Suggestions: I'd like to fight enemies that are armed with weapons next time. I was waiting to see a battle against a swordsman or a staff- wielder but it ever came. Also- maybe Bruce could have more weapons in the next one. Oh,..and all this relies on the fact that Ronin, should make another one.

Overall: You would not believe this game.. It is out of this world.. it is one of the best games I have ever played. I know your wondering how i got it so early.. well i was one of the first people at Babbages where I live to pre order it. The graphics are amazing, the gameplay is terrific and the sound is priceless
Gameplay: The gameplay is really cool.. as you play it you collect these things that count as money so you can buy new moves.. i thought this was a little cheesy.. they should of made a mode throughout the game were you could train and actually learn your moves. that would of been awesome. but overall the gameplay is SWEET!!
Graphics: Stunning!!! These graphics are out of this world.. so unbealiveable. they are crisp and clean. the producers did a really good job!!!
Sound: Priceless.. nothing much to say except ..
Great job to the producers!!!
Suggestions: Make a mode where you can learn the martial arts you do
