Compared to another game that's quite similar in gameplay and setting (The First Templar), it's way better than that crappy game in both regards. The graphics in this game is way better than 1st Templar, the combo system is deeper and more rewarding, and the cutscenes actually explain things in a way that makes sense.
On its own it's not too bad. The graphics are decent and the combat while repetitive, is pretty fun especially whenever you get an execution which always looks brutally rewarding. The story is actually pretty interesting but the characters are a bit one dimensional.
On hard the game can be frustrating at some points due to a lack of decent checkpoints so dying randomly even near the end means you have to replay the whole level from the start over again. The game is definitely a rental but it's not a bad game if you're looking for a mindless hack and slash game with some cheesy one liners.
If I were to rate the game I'd give it a 7/10
