Strange but fun.
Ok this game is seriously really weird. It's a war game which takes place in feudal Japan. It's a cross between an RTS (real time strategy) game and pinball. Yes that's right, I'm not joking. Except that you command your troops with a mic. I'm completely sincere when I say this. The game typically comes with a mic which you attach to your gamecube controller and plug into the console( you may have to get this separately when buying from lukie, idk). You use your voice to dictate movement commands to your army. And here's where the pinball comes in. You have a "legendary weapon" known as the "odama ball." You use 2 giant flipper manned by soldiers to launch a massive magical boulder around the map to destroy the enemy. And as if that wasn't weird enough, your army carries another magic thing called the "bell of nintendo," which is carried by several of your soldiers across the map. You win by getting the bell to the top of the battlefield. This bell grants you special abilities. When you strike the bell with the Odama ball, it knocks down nearby enemies, allowing your troops to go to town. This game also features rice balls, insanely fat generals, and a Japanese adviser who insults you whenever you fail a mission.
Overall-Pros: Original game design which is fun in inexplicable ways, Cons: Um...you might wake the neighbors by yelling at your controller too loud.
Get this game. Seriously. It's cheap and it's original and it's really weird and really awesome.
