A scantily clad sword-swinging slog-fest
If looks could kill then Tehra Dark Warrior would instantly slay anyone brave enough to play it; the graphics are truly gorgeous, with highly detailed sprites, impressive effects and vast, sprawling fantasy environments. Even the lead character is an eyeful, with plenty of flesh on display and ample assets to appreciate. Sadly, the beauty is only skin-deep, because under all the glitz and glamour Tehra Dark Warrior is actually a very ordinary and unexciting hack-and-slash epic.
The button-mashing combo system is repetitive, and the magical spells do little to alleviate the boredom. Aside from some mildly impressive boss encounters, the whole thing is staler than a pair of orc’s underpants, and it proves once and for all that even the most attractive game needs solid and dependable gameplay.
