The game plays like a 3D Beat-'em-up with many RPG elements, you can level up and upgrade many of your stats and get new Special Attacks, you can also lock on to enemes in order to land your attacks with more ease, but it still incorporates many of the beat-em-up elements, such as combos and other aspects.
A Special Attack is a special attack that requires Special Points, you can equip up to four at once, some do damage and others focus on stats.
