Game Description & Reviews:
A whole lot of Not-DOOM, is what this game is. It's... rough and unfinished and it shows. You're a martial arts instructor chasing a bad guy through time, who has stolen a magic sword. It screams cliche and doesn't impact gameplay at all (barring the last boss where you actually get to use the sword)
Going in, it's possible to mistake it for a proto-borderlands, with this whole stat system it has going on as a shooter, but... you couldn't be farther from the truth. The... stats you've got taking up the side of your screen barely do anything, nor does there seem to be any rhyme or reason as to when they get raised. And also, there doesn't seem to be a way to prevent them from taking up space on your screen.
You've got an OK selection of guns that, however, become obsolete once you change worlds and you can no longer find ammo for them. However there's not much variety as to what these guns do. Only a few stood out to me once I'd finished the game. Also some guns reload... when most dong, which feels weird, when actually playing the game.
All in all, Daikatana doesn't have anything particularly interesting going for it. An upside could be that it can be beaten really quickly if you're even vaguely familiar with it.
Final rating: John-Romero-didn't-make-me-his-bitch/5
