Accomplished people working in the studio Omega Force. Year after year, generation after generation, they produce almost identical at first glance fighters musou genre, which are alien to the experiments with the engine, or a statement of gameplay. And whether they are necessary?

Take the same Kojima. Man sawed five years the MGS, tried, and then have cut him from Konami. And rightly so – there was nothing to pull the rubber!

But in Omega Force personnel have no time for all sorts of nonsense. Because they do not just make games, and literally hrenachat them. Without interruption and many pieces a year.

After musou – the perfect fast food, bungled that can be of anything: Japanese history and will fit, and the Chinese, but you can do both, and the demons for a snack. And “Zelda” will go to the cause, and One Piece. And someday Omega Force, for sure, will make about musou amerinakskie elections.

But for now, the studio turned up under the arm “berserk”.

The original Berserk – manga spaces “dark swordsman” of the GATS, which draws almost thirty years (although recently been more appropriate to say “no paints”),

Kentaro Miura. It’s fantasy, like her hero, “dark”, and if we ignore the first volume, where the author has clearly not ripe, and the most recent, where the history, as it should be in any unfinished noticeably out of steam, it should be noted that to finish it will most likely only our descendants, and that is unlikely. In general, if all is to drop,

“Berserker” – one of the best representatives of the genre. He is tough and naturalistic, but not at the expense of meaning, and to lead the story with dozens of characters the author manages not worse than almost frame by frame drawn bouts. There was a place and large-scale battles, and grotesquely ugly monster, but when you see how carefully polished almost every frame,

Once the song today is not about the manga.

The main advantage of Band of the Hawk – is the best game of “berserk” in the last thirteen years. Even if it is because the only thing – the fans of the original can not be choosers.

The more so because it is an adaptation game Omega Force has succeeded most of all – it covers the manga is almost entirely, behind only remaining childhood GATS, some of the most recent volumes and suffering arch Lost Children, which here, as in the recent film adaptation, prefer lower – whether due to the fact that there are dozens of cuts hero turned into children demons, whether because of the events it is not critical to the story as a whole.

If “frame by frame” compared with its manga adaptation, it is clear that under the knife went to a bunch of characters not written in the format. For example, the head of the queen Midland, where the original has not been large-scale battles are omitted completely.

Cut, and most of the side-lines. And if you, for example, wanted to see the capital of the kingdom, the conversion of the invaders in the animated scenery of a horror movie, you’re out of luck. But here with the history of the GATS, the developers have managed carefully, and all more or less important for its understanding of the game has a scene. The only question is – in what form?

Omega Force retells the “Berserker” cheap and cheerful all that is possible, rips the meat of a full-length film adaptation, sometimes shoving scenes from it in the middle of gameplay.

The rest – sometimes in the form of the attraction of unprecedented generosity – illustrates the rollers, but usually costs scenes on the engine, about which setting is enough to say that we are there, even sometimes coincides with the lip animation.

However, many of the key for the understanding of the plot and did things set out the text on the screen or download the mission handed down in the encyclopedia, abandoned by major mode so far that the average player at risk and do not guess about its existence. In general, to get acquainted with the “berserk” in such a format, I would not recommend to anyone.
