Really I was thinking that for me to really be interested in this game the fighting system would indeed have to have the depth of God Hand or the rhythmic flow of action like in Arkham games. Never got around to Oni, which really is a shame since it was so much more interesting looking than Bungee's "other" series. At this point I basically agree, though. They've gone back on making SoR4 so many times that if they really want to try again they should just forget 3D altogether and make it a Genesis/MD retro revival game. 2D sprite action with soundtrack by Yuzo Koshiro. Just a grind job for good sprite art and a basic working fighting system. Call it a day and instant classic.
