The Advertising Blurb

Manhatten: 1986. In a vast underground garage beneath Madison Square Garden, two men are locked in mortalcombat. The huge cavern echoes with the sound of clashing steel, for although this is the 20th century, one combatant wields an ancient samurai sword, the other a broadsword. The duel is deadly earnest, ending only when the loser is decapitated. For the victor it is only one more conquest in a drama he has been living for 450 years.

A unique breed of men fated to duel down the ages to a distant time called the Gathering will battle for the Prize - power beyond imagination. The distant time is now. The place, New York.

Review:

Another fine example of a company buying the licence to a top rate film and then producing absolute tubbish in the hope that people will buy the game just because of the name. Sadly, this seems to be a profitable method as games companies follow this philosophy to this day.
