Chaos Legion is a third-person action-RPG developed and published by Capcom with high resolution graphics, sound and the characters modeled in the Japanese art of manga comics.
The gameplay is fairly similar to other games (Devil May Cry, Serious Sam, and Painkiller) in which it's all about pure action. Enemies are thrown at you in wave after wave and the goal is to annihilate them all. The key difference is the titular Chaos Legion, supernatural creatures that fight alongside the player. When they are active, Sieg Warheit (the main character) is unable to run and has weaker melee attacks. Legion can be controlled to a degree: their tactics can be switched between offensive and defensive, and you can issue orders to attack immediately with a certain button. While the Legion are inactive, Sieg can perform a sort of "special attack" called an Assist Attack which causes a Legion to appear and attack with him.
The game has been incessantly criticized by professional reviewers, each of which claim that the clunky controls, repetitive action, and dull story completely suck out any fun that could be had with the game—in essence, "all brawn and no brain make Chaos Legion a dull game". Fans of the game find this amusing, as the games mentioned above (and others) were near-worshipped for their all-action genre. Like Gotcha Force, another Capcom title, the game has lots of fans who claim that the game is a brilliant release and is a breath of fresh air among other competitors.
