In nut shell Dark Athena is nothing new and is more or less a copy of the original game. The game fails to provide the required immersion and fun required to carry its players to the end of the story. Dark Athena does nothing special or innovative to achieve the standards Butcher's Bay achieved at its time; rather it carries the same game to an all together new story and environment with a hope to attract gamers by a mere new name. The game play is the same the A.I is bad and the graphics are just fine making it only a recommendation for new comers. Those who have played the original title will get bored only after a few hours of play with no inspiration to play it up to the end.
