Summary: Though my criticism is going to hurt all the fans of this game but I must be honest. The game's good great graphics, enemies and surroundings. The designes and makers were brilliant and did produce an awesome game. Two bad things are that there are too many enemies (though I dont mind) coming to fight and sometimes the characters do not follow commands as I've spend 3 days bashing my head on the floor, now I've got a headache.
Summary: Well the fact is this is a game you shouldn't buy... unless you see it in a $5 bargain Bin, and only if your curious, but I'm tellin ya it's a waste of time. It looks good. Actually it looks great. I just can't for the life of me figure out how they could have screwed the camera up so bad. The fact is you have no control of the camera it zooms in and out on it's own, and moves to akward angles.
Summary: Genji: Dawn of the Blade was released at the lunch of the PS3, the development team was rushed and the quality of the final product suffers. pros: Great graphics shows off some of the PS3's muscle. There is a good bit of items/weapons to mess around with. Good environment destruction on some levels. The cutscenes are nicely done. cons: There is no camera control and the camera is horrible!
Summary: As other reviewers have mentioned, the camera is a big flaw. It's always at the same distance and angle, so it's really easy to get into a position where you can't see your enemies. Enough past games have gotten this right that I think this is an inexcusable flaw. I also found it hard to aim, and the demo didn't give much explanation of the controls so combos were just a matter of random luck.
Summary: Genji is set in ancient Japan that is supposed to be actually historical, However when you run into giant crabs and Ladies floating around with butterfly wings, you start to question that concept. The graphics are awesome, obviously next generation quality and great sound to make you feel like you're in mythical Japan. The problems with the game are obvious.
