Strategy Guide

Hello and welcome to the CARDINAL SYN strategy guide. This guide will show you
the moves and techniques on fighting, killing, and defending. One thing I will
say about this game, it's a VERY BLOODY game when you add the fatalities. This
game also has great playability with a fantastic 3D style of views. Well, lets
get on with it, shall we?

                               ===========

                              OCT. 22, 1999
                              =============


STORY
=====
It is said, when chaos reigned, long ago, a cloaked man appeared and began
walking the ravaged earth. This man, now named the wonderer, carried with him
a book that contained great and boundless secrets. After the wanderers
arrived, civilizations flurished. And the clans raised flags bearing his
symbol of unity. Peace reigned for many years through out the land. The
wanderer, believing that his peaceful teachings were concluded, gathered the
clan together, transformed his book, and disappeared. Clan member shortly
expired as quickly as their word and return to their brutal practices.
Pandimonium



GENERAL INFO YOU SHOULD KNOW
============================
I must point out right away that if your not used to 3D style fighting games
like TEKKEN, SOUL-EDGE, STREET FIGHTER EX, or other such games, then this game
can become very difficult to play. When I first played this game, I didn't
feel comfortable right away because their are some methods in this game which
make this game a little bit harder to play. Mostly because the ability to jump
and/or block is not the same as some fighting games out there. I will say one
thing for this game, it is truely a real 3D environment. In this game you can
move in complete 3D. As in, you can walk into the background, foreground, and
even walk around your opponent WITHOUT having to side step. In other 3D style
fighting games, you would have to do some type of side-step or flip menthod
in order to get behind or beside your opponent. This game offers a TON of
useful possibilities that you would never think would exist in a fighting
game. First, lets get down to the details on how to use the controls and on
how to use certain abilities during the game. One thing to note, all the moves
will be explained later in this guide.


THE MOVES
=========
Just like other fighting games, you have your basic attacks. Although not like
STREET FIGHTER EX or TEKKEN, this game plays a little more like SOUL-EDGE. For
example, you have your HORIZONTAL, VERTICAL, and LOW attacks. The plus is
added when you use the L and R buttons with your normal attacks or controller
for very interesting attacks and manuvers. Later on in this guide, I'll tell
you what characters can do what with certain buttons so you will know what to
look for. 


BLOCKING
========
Unlike other fighting games, you have to hold a button down to block certain
moves. In other games, you simply press the controller away form the opponent.
It's not that simple in this game. Another thing is that you can block high
and low. Try to watch yourself so you don't trip from a combo, a lot of the
players do like to trip, so watch yourself.


COUNTER ATTACKS
===============
Now this is something that I hardly ever see in a fighting game. The ability
to actually retaliate when you are being attacked. This means that anyone can
have an advantage, regardless if they are a slow, fast, big, or small player.
Even a bulky character has a good chance at winning, no matter what. Of course
the trick here is timing and knowing how to do it right. In fact, it's even
possible to actually counter attack every time your opponent tries to go in
for a combo. All characters can counter attack.


STUN THE OPPONENT
=================
Very similar to the counter attack, only this allows you an open shot after
the opponent has taken his/her time to attack you. All characters can stun
an opponent.


ATTACKING A DOWNED OPPONENT
===========================
This is a very classic attack that's used in such games as SOUL-EDGE and in
TEKKEN. This type of attack allows you or the opponent to attack you while
you're down on the ground. This manuver can be very deadly to you if you are 
not careful and if you stay down too long, although very benefitial to you if
you can time the move just right.


COMBOS
======
Just like all 3D fighting games, all the characters have a combo system that
is unique to each character you play as.


JUGGLES
=======
Yikes, definitely something you DO NOT want to get caught in. Juggles allow
a player to knock the opponent into the air, then be able to do more attacks
while the opponent is still in the air. If you can figure out the timing of
a juggle, you can finish opponents off in no time at all. When you read this
guide, I will include JUGGLE STARTERS for everyone. How it works is, do the
JUGGLE STARTER, then wait for the right as the opponent is coming down, then
hit them with everything you got.


FATALITIES
==========
Oh yes, this game also allows you to finish off opponents with a type of power
move that will kill the opponent. All fatalities are done as part of a combo
and are not always easy to pull off all the time. Plus, you can only kill your
opponent during your 2nd or 3rd win against an opponent. If you were to do
this before you have won a round, although you wouldn't kill the opponent, it
does, however, deliver a devestating blow to the opponent. This move alone
will do more than half a life bars worth of damage.


RUNNING
=======
This is another new feature in this game. This game allows you to be able to
run in any direction. I know this sounds rather unusual for a fighting game,
but this feature can be quite useful if you know how.


HAZARDS
=======
One thing you do not want to get caught in is the hazards that are on each
stage you fight on. Hazards range from spiked walls to electric shock pillars.
Watch yourself as you are fighting.


ITEMS AND POWERUPS
==================
On a lot of the stages, you will find treasure chests that hide a secret
surprise. Be careful, the opponent can use these items to, try to get them
before your opponent does, or you could be dead. These items include the
following...

BLUE BOTTLE   = This allows you to use your magic attack once
POWER SWORD   = This allows you to do more damage for a short period of time
YELLOW BOTTLE = This allows you to heal your health if it gets low
BOMBS         = Watch out, some of the items you get are bad for you


PROJECTILES AND MAGIC
=====================
This is a major thing to watch out for when you're fighting against any
opponent in this game. All characters have some type of projectile or magic
attack. One thing to note, projectiles can be done anytime, magic attacks can
only be down once, unless you find powerups. Although projectiles are not
very powerful, magic attacks can do some serious damage, watch yourself as
you're fighting.


THE SHIELD BAR
==============
Some of you may be wondering what that circle shaped symbol is at the bottom
of the screen during gameplay. This is what's called the SHIELD monitor. This
symbol represents how long your shield will last until you lose it. In other
words, you can block most hits for so long before you lose the shield and take
damage from regular hits, regardless if your blocking or not. So, when you're
fighting, watch your shield indicator and try not to block so much, or you
will die very quickly.



SOME OTHER THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW WHILE PLAYING THIS GAME
=========================================================
1.) Watch when the opponent starts to try to get behind you, they may be
setting up for a combo. Remember, you can't block if your back is turn to
them.

2.) If you fall, try to get back up as soon as possible. The opponent likes
to attack you while you are down sometimes.

3.)If you're caught in a combo from the opponent, try to counter attack. More 
than likely, you will stop right in the middle of a combo and do damage to the
opponent.

4.) Try to stay close to your opponent, if you don't, you may end up taking
serious damage from a magic or projectile attack. Sure combos are hard to
block, but projectiles are even harder if your not careful.

BIMORPHIA [Only playable if you do the all characters cheat]
============================================================

STORY
=====
Bimorphia was created through a twisted series of life after death through
the hands of Syn. He/she was originally a prisoner of Syn, until one day Syn
decided to test a twisted theory about life on a man and woman to create a
half man-woman incantation. She now fights to get revenge and hoping to find
the secrets to turn themselves back to normal and to hope that this practice
never gets into the wrong hands again.

NOTES ABOUT BIMORPHIA
=====================
This person, although a little slow, is powerful and has some great combos
to back up this character. Not only that, this person has 2 projectiles that
will keep the opponent at bay long enough for you to finish what you need to
do. This person plays a lot like Sagat from STREET FIGHTER. Just think of this 
person as Sagat and you might be able to handle this character.

ENDING
======
After defeating Kron, Bimorphia finally gets her revenge by picking Syn up and
opening her up like a cracked egg. After that, she goes to get the swords, but
instead summon a book. She then takes the book and starts to study the books
secrets and then goes to teach the world of the books secrets just like the
wonderer did.

FINKSTER
========

STORY
=====
Once a thief, always a thief. He lives to steal, rob, and take what is not
his. He likes to get objects that will get him the best profit from the best
dealer. When he hears that the Book Of Knowledge is still in existance, he
goes in persuit of this book and hopes to sell it to the highest bidder at the
trade markets. 

NOTES ABOUT FINKSTER
====================
Although not very strong, he is very agile and likes to do a lot of hits at
one time. This guy is almost the king of combos. Use his speed to your
advantage as much as possible. Plus, his fatality is one of the bloodiest by
far in the game. Once you see it, you will know what I mean.

ENDING
======
After beating Kron, Finkster returns to the altar where the swords lay and
summons the book. The book is now his for the taking. He heads back to his
hiding place in the sewers and then places the Book Of Knowledge in a library
style place that could be lost for ever, if not attended to properly.

HECKLAR
=======

STORY
=====
Hecklar was the court jester for Syn. Always trying to keep her happy and
making her laugh was his specialty. One day, his curiousity got the best of
him and wondered what Syn was doing in the Altar. As he approaches the Altar,
he sees Syn killing off one of the soldiers that belongs to a particular
kingdom. As he watches on, Syn notices his appearance. When he is caught,
Hecklar runs as fast as he could to a nearby kingdom and tries to warn them
of Syn's real intentions. Because he was a jester, people didn't really take
him seriously and was kicked, smacked, or thrown from every place he been.
After so long, he had taken enough punishment and decided to take matters into
his own hands. Since no one would believe him, maybe by becoming a hero would
change peoples minds about him.

NOTES ABOUT HECKLAR
===================
This character is a little stronger than Finkster, but not by much. He's quick
with his weapon, but doesn't move as much as he would like to. His combos are
high hitting and can string as much as 7 hits, 12 hits with juggle. Not really
a bad character to start with for beginners, but there are better characters
in this game than just him.

ENDING
======
After beating Kron, Hecklar dances to his hearts content and then decapitates
Syn. As he dances, he then is over joyed with his freedom from being a jester
for so long. He then suddenly realizes his potential as a fighting jester.

JUNI [Only playable if you do the all characters cheat]
=======================================================

STORY
=====
Juni belongs to a group of fairies that want peace brought back to the land
they once knew. Their lives need a place that still flows with life of trees,
grass, and water. Fairies rarely ever need to fight, but because the land is
being robbed by a deadly mage, they have to take action. Juni decides to help
and the village elder summons special daggers for Juni to use in her quest to
bring back the peace this land once had.

NOTES ABOUT JUNI
================
This character plays just like Finkster in every way, including the combos and
fatalities. She's not that much different at all as far as gameplay goes.
If you are good with Finkster, then she will be a great player for you as
well. Keep in mind one thing, she may have a lot of high hitting combos, but
she is just as weak as Finkster. One more thing to note, she doesn't run when
using the RUN button, she flies, but it's still just the same thing, only
different.

ENDING
======
After beating Kron, she returns to the village elder with the 3 swords. The
village elder orders the swords to be put in a far off place where they can do
no more damage to the land. The elder opens a portal and the 3 fairies drop
the swords into the portal, never to be seen again. After some time, Juni
notices a major change in the land.

KAHN [Only playable if you do the all characters cheat]
=======================================================

STORY
=====
Kahn believes he's the best and strongest warrior in the world. One of the
local people claimed he could beat Kahn and challenged him to a fight to the
death. Kahn won with little effort on his part. He now seeks Syn to prove that
he is a worthy fighter and to prove that only the strongest will survive.

NOTES ABOUT KAHN
================
Kahn is surprisingly an very good character. Even though he has the size
trouble, his fighting skills and speed more than make up for that. This is a
good character to start out as if you plan to play this game. He even has some
good reach, which will give you the advantage you need.

ENDING
======
After Kahn beats Kron, he then keeps an item from each fighter, and has the
enscripted swords forged so that they are engraved with his face. He is the
strongest fighter and lives for the death of other fighters. Behold the new
king of fighters.

KRON [Only playable if you entered the KRON cheat]
==================================================

STORY
=====
Kron is the final form when you have achieved enough powerful magic in your
soul. Syn knew about this power, and used it to her advantage and transformed
herself into a powerful dragon. No one really knew about her real intentions
right away, but when you defeat her human form, she will show you the true
power that lies in the enscripted swords.

NOTES ABOUT KRON
================
What's to know, he's the last boss in the game. That makes him BIG, STRONG,
and has the reach advantage. Don't take this character lightly, this character
is just fast enough to show you what he has. And if you are a good player, you
can take out anyone with just a few good hits. And that flying ability will
make you really cheap. One thing to note, he has very little combos, so
remember that.

MCKRIEG
=======

STORY
=====
Mckrieg has lived inside coal and gold mining caves for as long as he can
remember. He's been considered a good leader among his people so they chose
Mckrieg as the guardian of the caves. The main thing on his mind is that he
doesn't want to get involved with any type of fighting, but they will defend
themselves if they need to. Mckrieg is the man to do it.

NOTES ABOUT MCKRIEG
===================
Although not very bulky, he's not very quick. He does stand out a lot, so
watch your timing and attacks. He has some good reach, but his reaction time
is a little on the slow side. Play this character conservatively, but do use
his projectile to your advantage.

ENDING
======
After realizing that Moloch still lived, the cave dwellers decided to make
one final attack on the creatures, and make certain, once and for all, that
this mutation never happens again. After killing off every reptilian creature,
Mckrieg and some men returns to the tree one final time, making sure that the
same thing doesn't happen again.

MOLOCH [Only playable if you do the all characters cheat]
======

STORY
=====
Moloch was born from a human mother, but was born deformed and mutated. After
he was born, the villagers thought it best to just get rid of the child, since
it didn't look human. One of the villagers took the strange mutant to a tree
full of voltures and left it there, hoping that the voltures would kill the
young mutant. Time passed by and the village was happy, until one night, a
strange retilian figure started making killing sprees on the village. That's
when the villagers knew, the baby didn't die after all.

NOTES ABOUT MOLOCH
==================
This character is not too bad, but don't think that he is the best to play.
He will sometimes be left open for a shot if you start a combo and miss. He's
still a little on the bulky side, but his strength is a major helper in this
case. But one thing is for sure, he's got the fastest projectile in the game,
so use that to your every advantage.

ENDING
======
Moloch plans a final assault on the village that betrayed him, with an army
of his own kind. The battle gets bloody, but they are victorious, and can now
get revenge on the ones that refused him life. Now they will know what life is
like hanging on a tree.

MONGORO
=======

STORY
=====
Mongoro is a race of giants that live in the deepest parts of the world. They
live only to kill humans and raise them like cattle. He doesn't care who lives
or dies, so long as the human world will no longer be. Mongoro is the most
feared of all the cyclops. All who meet him will suffer the pain and fill his
hunger, literally

NOTES ABOUT MONGORO
===================
He's big, he's strong, and not bad for a big character. He is a little on the
slow side, but don't think he's not agile. His moves and strength make up for
his loss of speed. Watch yourself when fighting this guy, but do be careful
when playing him as well.

ENDING
======
After beating Kron, Mongoro returns to the sanctuary of his dark home, with
his collection of items taken from his victoms. After rumaging through his
stuff, he notices a sword with enscriptions on it and wonders what they could
be. Although not very smart, he keeps the sword, hoping that they might hold
the key to salvation for the giant beings.

MONGWAN [Only playable if you do the cheat for all characters]
=======

STORY
=====
Mongwan is a strange rogue style character that can see things with his mind.
When he wears the mask, he doesn't rely on his eyes, he relies on his mind to
guide him through life. Ever since Syn has entered this land, he has had
visions of a coming apocolypes. He tries not to worry about it, but in one
vision, he also notices that Syn is hiding a deep, dark secret that she will
not reveal, unless provoked. Mongwan realizes his potential as a fighter, and
sets himself for the fight of his life.

NOTE ABOUT MONGWAN
==================
He's actually not a bad character. He has desent speed, agility, and strength.
He's your basic all-around character that anyone could play. Although some
of his combos are a little hard to know and learn as well as his fatalities. 

ENDING
======
Mongwan returns to his hideout temple with the enscripted swords. He believes
that Syn was using the swords to give her the ultimate power of life. Mongwan
tests this theory out by placing the swords in a triangle pattern to see if he
could learn the secrets of eternal life. Does he find it?

STORY
=====
Continuing the studies of the egyption ways, Nephra serves a stone idol that
beckens for life. She tries ever so hard to keep her stone idol happy by doing
his bidding. She trains hard under the watchful eye of the stone idol. Her
only goal is to free her god from the stones so that he may roam the earth
once more.

NOTES ABOUT NEPHRA
==================
Nephra is not a bad character, but lacks a little on speed. Her combos are a
little on the slow side and lags just slightly after certain moves are done.
Although, don't take her lightly, she can be a formidable opponent as well as
player, if you're real careful.

ENDING
======
After winning countless battles, she brings with her the enscripted swords
and places them in the proper holes. Once all the swords are in place, the
temple begins to shake. The stone idol starts to come to life, but then an
explosion appears which is confusing to Nephra. Suddenly, strange tenticles
come out of the statue. Nephra tries to take action by getting one of the
swords, but to no avail. She is nabbed by the tenticles and the egyption
temple begins to close tight, she will remain as the tenticles pet for the
rest of her life.

waterfall. When the king falls ill to disease, the princess tries her best to
help her people out. When she realizes the danger involved as a princess, she
seeks advisory from her father and is ordered to stop the chaos and madness
before her people die.

NOTES ABOUT ORION
=================
Orion is a very average character, and a good starting character as well. She
has desent speed and agility. She may be a little weak, but she has a lot of
combos to make up for that. Plus her projectile move is more than a match for
most opponents.

ENDING
======
After beating Kron, she returns to her kingdom with the enscripted swords. She
goes directly to her fathers chamber and her father blesses her with the power
of a queen. She now becomes the ruler of her kingdom and her land flurishes

PLAGUE
======

STORY
=====
Plague was once a witch doctor for his people and studied the arts of rebirth
and cell rejuvination. When he found the secrets, he wrote what he could by
book. At some point in his life, he was killed in a slaughter and massacre of
attacking soldiers. When the news spread about his death, someone got a hold
of his book and used the secrets that Plague found on Plague himself. Since
he was the one who knew the secrets, it's only fitting to bring back the
doctor who can control it as well.

NOTES ABOUT PLAGUE
==================
Although sometimes it seems that his moves are a little awkward at first, his
moves are more of a confuser than a real move that connects a lot. Although
not very strong, he is rather agile for a dead guy. One more thing, this guy
has little or no combo style at all. The highest hitting is like 4 hits.

ENDING
======
After defeating Kron, he takes the swords with him to a strange swamp area
that is covered in dead souls. He thrusts the swords into the swamp and an
army of undead start to rise out of the water to obey the command of Plague,
ruler of the wretched and the undead.

REDEMPTOR [Only playable if you do the all characters cheat]
============================================================

STORY
=====
Redeptor belongs to a clan that believes that the only way to peace is to
destroy the mind of the bad. Their clan is more of a band of savage killers,
but they believe that they are doing this for the good of the land and for
themselves.

NOTES ABOUT REDEMPTOR
=====================
This is not too bad a character. A little on the slow side, but good reach,
nice amount of damage, and some good combos with some great juggle starters.
Not bad for first time users, but watch yourself, you can easily be avoided
if needed to.

ENDING
======
After his battles are over, he returns to his savage ways by killing more
innocent people. During one of his sacrefices, they capture a man in a red
robe. When Redeptor tries to kill him, his sword stops mid way from some
unknown force. When the man rises, it's the wonderer. The wonderer throws
aside all the guards, then knocks away Redeptor. In doing so, this old man's
goal was to destroy the symbol that made this clan up. When it's destroyed,
he disappears once more.

STYGIAN [Only playable if you do the all characters cheat]
==========================================================

STORY
=====
Stygian was born from a pile of bones that was piled inside a pit. Most of his
body is not his own. His chest is that of a human, his head is that of a
dragon, and one of his hands is made from a skull of an animal. No one knows
the purpose of this being except for him. Only he knows what he must do.

NOTES ABOUT STYGIAN
===================
For a pile of bones, he's not too bad of a character. Has some good speed,
his strength is very good, and not as weak as some might seem. His combos lack
a little variety, but with the juggle starters, he's a very agile opponent.

ENDING
======
After beating Kron, Stygian heads to the Altar that has the enscripted swords
and tries to take them for his own. When his body comes into conctact with
the swords, he starts to gain flesh all over his body. He now has a soul worth

STORY
=====
She is the reason why all this is taking place. She wants to find the secrets
to life and hope to become the most powerful person on the planet. The swords
serve as her purpose in life and to gain the use of a special power that she
alone will take. Once she has the power she needs, no one will be able to stop
her.

NOTES ABOUT SYN
===============
Her name speaks for itself. Not too bad of a character and she has some pretty
good strength. She's a little on the slow side, but you can hardly tell at
times. She's a very well rounded character for anyone to play. Not too fast,
not too slow, and has some good combos to go with her power.

ENDING
======
Now that she has no more worries about the enemies, she transforms herself
into a dragon and finds a new world to take for her own. Who knows what real
intentions she has and who knows if she will try to find a better form to
live with. Only time will tell.

VANGUARD
========

STORY
=====
Vanguard comes from a kingdom that is all Knights. Vanguard is the most
trusted and the most loyal Knight to the kingdom. When he gets news of chaos
being runned by a cloaked woman, he is sent to investigate the happenings of
the surrounding area. Vanguard will not go down easily.

NOTES ABOUT VANGUARD
====================
This is a very awesome character. Lots of moves, more than average damage,
and although a bit bulky, he's got some good speed. This is the best all-round
character to play as when you play this game. He's the real character to be.

ENDING
======
After destroying Kron, Vanguard returns home with the enscripted swords. When
he presents them to the king, he says that the rewards go to the people, not
to the kingdom. He then realizes that being a Knight is being trusted
throughout the land. He heads to the village to present the swords and show
that Vanguard will protect his people from harm and chaos.

VODU [Only playable if you do the all characters cheat]
=======================================================

STORY
=====
Vodu is a witch doctor for his country. He practices the arts of telepathy
and tries to see into the future. He also practices the arts of death and
life forces that surround the spirit world. One night, while performing an
old dancing ritual, the flames behind him show an image of a powerful dragon
that is living. Vodu doesn't notice until he turns around suddenly to see what
he will face in the end. Vodu must find out what is behind this and put it to
a stop before the world is in chaos.

NOTES ABOUT VODU
================
He's pretty quick for a character and has some good reach. He's got a lot of
combos to play with and lots of high hitting combos that will do some major
damage to a lot of characters. Be careful when playing him, his combos are
a little hard to get off if you don't know what you're doing.

ENDING
======
After he defeats Kron, he takes Syn's body back to his camp site and burns the
remaining life from Syn. When he tries to do this, Syn comes to life once more
and the skeletal remains tries to finish off Vodu. He notices the skeletal
form is alive and then reaches for the enscripted sword and throws it at the
living skeleton. The skeleton dies in a firey flash of light and Syn is no
longer living. The world is now free of her chaos.

FAQ SECTION [Frequently Asked Questions]
========================================

1.) BESIDES CHEATS/GAME SHARK, IS THERE ANOTHER WAY OF GETTING SECRET PLAYERS?
==============================================================================
Yes, but this way is a little more difficult to do. What you have to do is
play the game through with a character on normal difficulty and beat the game
with that character. You would have to do this for each normal character in
the game.

2.) IF THAT IS SO, WHO DO I GET WITH WHAT CHARACTER?
====================================================
Okay, here is a list of who you get when you play as that character in the
game with the normal difficulty...

Play as Finkster to get Juni
Play as Heckler to get Vodu
Play as McKrieg to get Moloch
Play as Mongoro to get Kahn
Play as Nephra to get Bimorphia
Play as Orion to get Mongwan
Play as Plague to get Stygian
Play as Vanguard to get Redemptor

Remember, you have to have the difficulty set on normal or higher and you have
to play all the way through the game with that character.

3.) IF THE STAGES HAVE HAZARDS, WHAT ARE THESE HAZARDS?
=======================================================
Okay, I'll list the hazrads that are on each stage as they appear...

Bimorphia's stage has spikes on the floor and walls
Finkster's stage
Heckler's stage has a head in the center that has spikes on it
Juni's stage has thorns on the walls that are dangerous
[Will finish this next update]

4.) IF YOU WERE TO RATE THIS GAME, WHAT WOULD YOU RATE IT?
==========================================================
Okay, I'll list for you a rating system that I use on a scale of 1-5, 5 being
the best. I'll also mention why I gave it that rating...
           
GRAPHICS   = 4
SOUND      = 5
CONTROL    = 3
UNIQUENESS = 4
OVERALL    = 4
DIFFICULTY = Adjustable

GRAPHICS = Fantastic, the cinematics, animation, characters, stages, all just
perfect for a fighting game. The intro was totally cool and the cinematics for
each character gave this game some life. I almost felt as though it was
telling a story as well as being a game. If you ever wanted to see some great
mideval style characters and play-style, this is the game to get. Plus, the
characters during gameplay almost looked real enough to be real fighters,
unlike Tekken or Street Fighter EX where it still looked like polygon style
characters. They did a great job on smoothing out the polygons for the stages
and characters, very realistic.

SOUND = Excellent, totally flawless, every sound was just perfect for this
game. The cinematic sequences mixed with the sounds were perfect. The sounds
used during the game were great, especially if you did the fatality combo.
All the special moves sounded great and each character had their own voices.
Unlike a lot of other games, this game has a lot of voices that you wouldn't
expect from a fighting game. Plus, the music for the cinematics and stages
were perfect, very mideval style and worked well with the game.

CONTROL = Okay, this is where they cound have done some work on when they made
this game. Not to sound critical, but if people have not played such games as
TEKKEN, STREET FIGHTER EX, or other such games, they are totally going to be
confused by the moves that they put in this game. I mean, I can't remember a
time when you had a JUMP button on the other fighting games. What's worse,
this jump button is the R1 button, that makes it a little difficult for people
who are so used to jumping using the control pad. Not only that, there's no
ability to throw your opponent. The button mentioned is not exactly a throw,
it's more of a push or shove and mostly used defensively, not offensively.
And although there is a way to throw your opponent, it's more used as a
counter attack, again used defensively, not offensively. Next time they try to
make a fighting game, lets plan the buttons out a little bit better, and lets
incorperate the THROW ability next time, all the other games do.

UNIQUENESS = Very unique in every way. First off, it's a mideval style, hardly
any fighting games are like that, with the exception of Weapon Lord. Very well
done in animation and in the style of gameplay that they did. The story during
the intro and the cinematics make this game more realistic to the player and
to the game. The controls could have been a little more thought out, but what
were you expecting from this game. The sounds and music was great, practically
fit the situation of the game and during the stages. All in all, this game is
very good and very well done. If you want a fighting game that has blood,
combos, 3D style gameplay, and a very interesting style of game features, then
look no further. Welcome to SYN, CARDINAL SYN.

OVERALL = Hey, what can I say, it's a great fighting game. Blood, fatalities,
combos, special moves, magic attacks, secret characters, 18 playable fighters
to choose from, and a some great game features make this game a must have for
all you fighter fans out there. This game offers enough blood and guts to
satisfy even the MK players out there. The combos system is great and a lot
better than Tekken and Soul Edge. No, you can't do a LOT of hits, but the
combos work well for a fighting game like this.
