This game is based on the Japanese anime series Berserk. The main character, Guts, equipped with his huge sword slashes through his enemies leaving bloody corpses. With cut-scenes that follow the anime, this Hack and Slash game will attract fans of the series.
The action game has players face off against waves of enemies, then take out giant boss monsters. Gameplay centers around slicing through opponents using your sword and a few other attacks. Gatsu has two main attacks with his sword, a weak attack and a slower strong attack, each assigned to a separate button. Another button makes Gatsu go into a rage, with the screen turning red and the hero speeding slashing enemies for a limited time. Holding down the L1 trigger and pushing one of the face buttons makes Gatsu fire one of four projectile weapons. The screen displays which face button corresponds to which projectile attack.
This game is also known as Berserk Sennen Teikoku no Taka in Japan.
