||Imagine that you and your friends are suddenly caught between warring factions fighting over an entire world. Each group is trying to gain dominance over the other, and is actively seeking any artifact that could potentially tip the balance of power in their favor. This is the basic setting of Chaotic: Shadow Warriors, the latest animated series and card game to be turned into a game. Unlike the recently released console version of the game which was a bit predictable and repetitive, this version has a bit more complexity because it sticks closer to its trading card roots ...The plot behind Chaotic revolves around a digital game world known as Perim, where the holographic characters of the game are allied to four separate factions and constantly fight each other for control with the help of human players. Four of these players, Tom, Kaz, Sarah and Peyton, are tasked by the masters of the game world to use a new digital scanner to track down their favorite characters and items. However, as the four friends quickly discover, a significant theft of artifacts known as Battlegear has started to tip the balance of power in the game world, and the four are recruited to discover who stole the items before it's too late by selecting a faction to represent during their investigation. Fortunately, if you're not a fan of the show, you won't be kept in the dark, as the game comes with an almanac that tracks story, character and gameplay details. All of this info can be accessed at any time, giving you a chance to brush up on items you may have forgotten or don't understand...With its mix of card battling combat and character driven exploration, Chaotic: Shadow Warriors does an okay job of presenting an adventure within the digital game world of the show, but the largest problem is that it feels like it just doesn't go far enough to make either facet truly shine. Exploration and puzzle solving feels like just something to extend play between each battle. Fights, while governed by a random card system, can be rather easy to play through. Fans of the show will probably enjoy the game thanks to its throwback to the trading card system, but as a standalone title, it's just shy of becoming a decent gaming experience.
