It can be tough deciding what game to play. Especially when so many of us have limited time at hand. A silver lining about spending more time at home right now is getting the chance to try out some games you may have pushed to the side.

These could be good games that didn’t quite get your attention or games that may not have had critical success, thus never reaching your radar. Daikatana is one of the latter and as it celebrates its 20th anniversary we thought it would be fun to look back at this infamous first-person shooter that was met with very mixed results when it released all those years ago.

Time-traveling through the past, present, and future

Daikatana is a first-person shooter that takes place across four different time periods. You’ll find yourself in 2455 Japan, ancient Greece, Norway during the Dark Ages, and San Francisco in 2030.

One twist presented in Daikatana is based on those two sidekicks. You see, if they die during a mission, you fail and have to start over.

In theory, this is a fun mechanic, but Daikatana does suffer from artificial intelligence that is sometimes lacking in the intelligence factor. For both your teammates and enemy AI. This makes each encounter a roll of the dice, which if you don’t take it too seriously can lead to some ridiculous fights. Sometimes good, sometimes bad.

While there are issues with the system, creator John Romero was absolutely onto something with the team-based shooter, as many games since then have used similar systems that have been widely acknowledged as a unique, fun mechanic.
