Gungrave (videogame)

Released in 2002 for the Sony Playstation 2

Gungrave is a shooter based on the anime serie with the same name. While the anime is awesome, the game is mediocre but at least it´s entertaining.
The gameplay is simple, shoot everything in the screen something that the bad camera and controls don´t allow that well, which can be fustrating and tedious. You also have access to some special moves you can unlock by collecting points along the story.
The game follows the anime story with some alterations which overall are well done.
In terms of graphics the game takes a cel-shade approach which is one the game strongest points that unfortunately are few.   Another strong point is the soundtrack that tries to give the feeling of action and epicness with sucess. The game is also very short and can be finished in a couple of hours....

To sum it up, Gungrave is a short, repetitive and mediocre game that doesn´t make justice to the great anime that is based on. Still it´s a fun game that its worth a try at least.  I recommend it to the anime and shooters fans .

If you want to know more about the anime go to http://justp2play.blogspot.pt/2012/04/gungrave-anime.html you won´t regret it

note: i liked  the game despite it´s flaws.
