In the still of night, the queen lays her newborn son in his crib as a shadow steals past the window. She looks up and sees nothing. She hears only silence. And then, a sound behind the wall, the telltale soft metallic song of a blade being carefully drawn from its scabbard. The king turns to seek out the source of the sound, only to hear several similar tones echo through the night just outside the paper walls. Quickly, he reaches for his own weapon, but it's already too late.
Thus begins the tale of Godai: Elemental Force. The game features fast-paced stealth gameplay, and allows you to engage your enemies with hand-to-hand, sword, and projectile weapon attacks. You'll set out on a quest through the trials of the four spirit elements (Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire) in 16 breathtaking levels. You can survey your surroundings with a 360-degree cinematic KinetiCam, and make use of eight play modes, one player campaign, and seven styles of two-player head-to-head. The game includes new weather and environmental effects, including night, rain, fog, and "pool of light" sources such as torches, fire pits, etc., that will immerse the player into the story and action. The wide selection of weapons includes katana blades, twin blades, throwing spikes, shuriken, smoke bombs, and elemental magic. Godai: Elemental Force also features a simple pick-up-and-play default control scheme.

you are not going to have to pay much for it nowadays anyway!
controls and commands take a few minutes to understand, and your character controls okay.
it is total cheeze in a good way! grab some friends an laugh!
Then came Tenchu 2 and Onimusha which I just think is amazing. They had me hooked for hours.
So when I saw Godai I was totally excited. Until Tenchu 3 arrives I thought here was a game that I could sink my stars into. Slice and dice Teri-yaki style.
But after an initial opening movie that was kind of interesting and some great inspiraing music I found the game had little to offer. Not surprising when you see who made it 3DO.
The game play is lacking, the graphics are not up to ps2 standard, the combat gets repetative and very little new happens. Which is such a shame as these games are the very sort that get me hooked. I tried hard to like it. But it just is not of the quality it should be. I really don't know what 3DO's problem is but they are really falling behind on quality in their games.
Rent this game first before buying.
So, to go ahead and end this, I'll tell you all that I wish I would have listened to Gamepro when they gave this game a 1.5 out of 5.0 overall.
So- please don't buy this game, if you want, I'll give you the money myself. I'm honestly suprised that Gamestop bought it from me, and didn't just laugh in my face. Have a good day.
First the camera, you can't control the view at all and so if you get into any of the platforming areas, you're pretty much blind because you can't see all the options available to you. You'll see one platform in front of you but not the ones to your left and right.
Next is the control. While the combos are pretty cool, you can't change your direction of attack once you start it so if you miss, you're screwed.
The weapons do degrade as you use them so it adds a touch of realism so at least there was some effort.
The voices for the characters suck...a lot. Think of a bad voiced-over martial arts movie and take it down another notch and you'll have Godai. The story's pretty solid though. I would definitly recommend renting it before buying.
My girlfriend suggested it in a used game store because it had multiplayer, ninjas on it, and was like $2. And for $2 I got completely ripped off. I could have got two wendy's doublestacks for that.
The graphics are horrible, the controls are terrible, and from what I remember of the only time I played it there is no save system. So I couldn't have even forced myself to play through it one mission at a time, because it's all or nothing. There's a possibility that I'm mistaken about the saving, but there were plenty of other problems to keep me from ever playing it again.
Godai is strictly pure, solid action. It's a fantasy beat'em up where you find yourself forever outnumbered by legions of foes. If anyone has played the Psx games "Ninja" and "Jackie Chan Stuntmaster" they'll be familiar with this cool game
GoDai packs cool backgrounds, yet has litle character animation. Moreover, gamers will surely see that characters seem to float over the ground a bit. It's where it fails.
The sound is great, though, especially the soundtracks. There's lots of realistic sound effects, like blades clanging with each other, howling winds and splashing waters.
GoDai has good control. It's not wierd or hard like other people say.
As said before, GoDai is pure action. And it's proud of it!
GoDai doesn't have that much looks as the usual PS2 games, but if you're looking for some fun and love free-roaming beat'em-ups, buy this now. Don't consult mags, they'll turn you against it!
