As long as you dont copy what its based on it wont automatically suck.
Just like when they make a movie then make the game exactly like the movie.
But if you create a whole new game that is influenced by whatever it is, instead of just copy and pasting then you can make a good game. Same goes for when making games into movies.
Btw, its not a fighting game, its a Action/Samurai game. Samuel L. Jackson and Phil Lamarr doing voices ^_^. I think RZA might be making some soundtracks for the game, you know... since Wu-Tang is really into Martial Arts movies and the whole culture.
I think if I get the game I might be like that zilla guy and overrate it simply because im liking everything I hear. But to each his own, and it will be my own
