About Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Set in 19th Century China, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is a martial arts fighting game based on the classic teachings and techniques of the Wudan style. Combining adventure and intense, dynamic combat with the ability to explore lush, interactive environments, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon suspends the laws of space, gravity and the human body. Players represent one of four characters: Li Mu Bai, Yu Shu Lien, Jen Yu or Lo.
Each character possesses specific moves, talents, and deadly weapons; players must work to improve their fighting skills as they compete against intelligent foes and seek revenge against the sinister Jade Fox (killer of Li Mu Bai's master and Yu Shu Lien's fiance). The gameplay experience effectively captures the martial arts magic and fluidity of movement that made the film a worldwide success.
