This reviewer had quite a time trying to come up with an adequate description of this game. It's hard to convey in words how horrible this title is. Acclaim may have been reborn from it'sold ashes, but it's not completely forgotten it's past roots. Let's start, shall we?
If you're reading this review, it's probably for comic relief, but at any rate, the game must bereviewed. Starting in the gameplay department, well, it's really not there. Your characters move as if they have cement blocks attached to their legs and on top of that, the camera seems to have mind of its own, consistently changing views. Half of the game's difficulty comes from the fact that the camera puts you in an awkward position, leaving you mindlessly swinging into thin air while you get the mess beat out of you. Fun stuff. Add on to that the fact that the game is not all that short, and you have an excuse to use the game as drink coaster.
If the gameplay department wasn't enough to make you run from the game like it was the plague, wait until you see the game in action! Oh yeah, nothing more enjoyable than seeing vaguely detailed characters have at it like they were in a mud wrestling contest. Poor character development and blocky graphics make for some bad eye candy. And to be fair, there are some instances where the game does have some very nice, yet not interactive, backgrounds. Nice to look at, but don't touch!
People laughed at the voice-over's in Resident Evil, but it doesn't hold a candle to The Crow: City of Angels. No sir. Acclaim hired the top voice actors from the streets of Washington D.C. to portray the characters in the game. To throw more fuel on the fire, the only real reason to keep from pressing the mute button is a couple of good tracks, including one from White Zombie.
If you haven't made up your mind yet not to buy this game, then shame on you. There is more than enough reasons above to justify you NEVER playing this game. It's really sad to see Acclaim, who has actually started to produce quality titles, put out something like The Crow: City of Angels. Let's all hope and pray that this is the last of titles like these.
Graphics: I can't say enough bad things about the visuals. Grainy graphics, bad character movement, the list just goes on and on.
Sound: Aside from the White Zombie tune, the majority of the music is not anything to brag about. Best part about the sound, sadly enough
Enjoyment: Trips to the dentist are more fun than having to suffer through this title.
Replay Value: If you enjoy horribly made pseudo-3D fighters, then this is your game. Other avoid like the plague.
