Onimusha Tactics

Portable Review
23 October 2005
  • Excerpt: As far as strategy RPGs for GBA go, this one is pretty good. The gameplay is a lot like that of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, you are looking down on the battle area from the top left, and it has a semi-3D look to it. The game is set in Japan and an evil man has transformed into a devil and is trying to open the gates of hell and take over the world (or maybe just Japan… it doesn't really say) using the Genma (evil beast creatures) to kill everyone.

Onimusha Tactics

Into Liquid Sky
30 April 2004
  • Excerpt: It's become more and more apparent that during this generation, the place to go for Strategy RPGs is the GameBoy Advance. With titles like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Tactics Ogre: The Knights of Lodis already available, Capcom has decided to throw in their lot and bring the world of Onimusha to the GBA in a Strategy RPG form.
  • Pros: Onimusha storyline is nicely done, Characters look unique even as small sprites, Item and weapon creation is a nice addition
  • Cons: Way too linear, even for a strategy RPG, Requires little strategy, Audio and graphics could be more interesting

  • Conclusion: Overall the gameplay clearly resembles other tactical games, but lacks the true essence found in other releases under the Final Fantasy Tactics or Tactics Ogre games. While the simplicity may be nice for some, it doesn't help the game with the intensity needed to keep a true gamer at bay for days of gameplay.

Onimusha Tactics

RPG LAND
29 December 2003
  • Excerpt: “Average” quality games are released all the time; that’s what makes them the average. But a number of impressive or even fantastic games also seem to come out at least a couple times a month. So what has to counteract those gems to keep the average an average? The answer is “crap.” Let’s start with the story. The game uses the story of the Japanese historical figure Oda Nobunaga, which has been used a number of times on several systems, from the SNES to the PS2.
