The lights are on
Crystal Dynamics is best known for their work on Tomb Raider, Legacy of Kain, and Gex. One of their Playstation titles is rarely talked about when discussing the company's history, and that's the action platformer Akuji the Heartless. We were curious to revisit the title to see if it was an underappreciated gem, so we picked it for this week's Replay.
Click below to watch Andrew Reiner, Tim Turi, Robotoki president Robert Bowling, and myself take control of Akuji for the first time in over a decade.

Never heard of it, so it should be interesting. Plus, Robert Bowling is a cool guy, and the Showdown continues, so it shouldn't disappoint.
I remember being 10 and playing this at a friends house it was awful. But we gained enjoyment by calling it akuji the fartless. Sigh simpler times.
Sweet,Saturday fix commence.
I agree everyhing Joe says. that game whas horses....t and SO HORRIBLE.
god damn i love replay i've had SUCH a crap day this is totally what i need i love you guys
All the games I cared about are out. :(
I don't really care if the games are good or bad, I had a blast watching the Showdown and the regular Replay was fun, too. Never heard of the game before though. Go Indigo Prophecy! I kinda wanna see that.
I've never heard of this game...
Robert Bowling needed to talk more, you didn't ask him anything either. otherwise, it was a good replay.
hanson picks rough games. i also question the integrity of the competition, but they are entertaining nonetheless!
Don't worry Tim I remember that episod and I always get tht same feeling. By the way Jeff nothing is better than Custom Robo, We need 3 Super Replay's of that marvelous classic.
Go, go, Super-Stress-Test!
That second segment of the showdown was heartbreaking!
Damn you Ben Hanson and your Hansony games!
Wonderful Replay this week! And thanks for Robert Bowling guest starring! I loved playing Akuji as a kid. I think I beat it 2 or 3 times, such a fun game.
And what a Super Replay Showdown! Ben Hanson, I love that man and am glad he chooses these ridiculous games and challenges.
