  • Excerpt: I have to say that I was actually somewhat disappointed by Genji: Days of the Blade 's graphics. While the game appears on what is supposed to be the graphically most powerful system, I found myself thinking more times than not that it didn't look a whole lot better than its PS2 predecessor. Granted, Dawn of the Samurai was a great looking game and really pushed that system hard.

  • Excerpt: Genji 2: Days of the Blade takes place three years after Way of the Samurai, the first installment of the series. The game begins with Benki and Yoshononay, two original characters from the series, along with Lady Shusuka. Bosong, who was killed at the end of the first installment, is now resurrected to help destroy the new enemy. In the first game, the enemy was a rival clan, known as the Heyshe.

Expert Review

The Laser
7 July 2007
  • Summary: What's really disappointing about Genji's next generation debut comes in the realization that these problems were very much evident in the PS2 edition. The developers have seemingly made no effort to fix them here - the basic structure and premise are largely unchanged. As mentioned earlier, the fixed camera angles allow for a more cinematic approach, but they undermine the gameplay, making you feel like you're barely interacting with a movie, not playing a game.

ME Gamers
26 May 2007
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Since the Playstation 3 was announced, gamers waited with bated breath to learn more about its various features. Arguable, with the introduction of blu-ray discs, game content would be visibly increased, and with the processing power of the PS3, games would look and feel out of this world. True to this, Genji: Days of the Blade managed to pull off some sleek and beautiful graphics, but sadly not even this can hold your attention for long.
