  • Summary: The best looking Samurais out there.
  • Pros: Characters and environments look amazing; animation is very well done; variety of different environments to fight in; good story that keeps players interested.
  • Cons: Clunky controls; bad camera makes battles harder at times; Yoshitsune is the only character worth using in combat; tilt sensing functionality feels rather tacked on; voice acting could use some work.

  • Excerpt: One of the most exciting things about first-party launch titles is that they're usually the prettiest looking titles of the bunch. Games like Halo, Super Mario 64, and Sony's most recent, Resistance, have shined as launch titles. It's those launch games that give you your first tiny impression of a console's power, and it's often an in-house studio that's responsible for it. Genji: Days of the Blade fits that very same mold of being a good looking launch title..

  • Excerpt: review that a mediocre game is a dangerous thing -- more dangerous than something that's just outright terrible. The problem is that you're never really sure if the game will get any better, and since it never gets any worse, you end up playing far too much of it to know. Most dangerous of all, however, is the game that There's nothing like marveling at a game that quite honestly blurs the line between CG and real-time graphics (a couple of times I was convinced...

  • Excerpt: Sometimes, launch titles are cut some slack. New graphics and effects, or an added dimension can apply some fuzzy math, nudging a review a decimal or two. Genji: Days of the Blade has some of those nice graphics, but there aren’t enough polygons in a Pixar movie to recommend this game for your shiny, new PlayStation 3. Days of the Blade takes place three years after the first Genji ended, with playable characters Yoshitsune and hulking Benkei returning.

Genji: Days of the Blade Review

GameSpot
8 November 2006
  • Summary: While this action adventure game flexes a bit of the PlayStation 3's graphical muscle, its rather shallow, derivative gameplay makes it difficult to recommend.
  • Pros: Great graphics and sound show off some of what the PlayStation 3 can do, four considerably different playable characters plus multiple unique weapons, some exciting boss battles and other impressive set pieces
  • Cons: Level design is often dull, and sometimes frustrating and confusing, repetitive hack-and-slash combat rarely demands much skill or finesse, some noticeable cut corners throughout the story make the game feel rushed
