Not fun

Zach Teachout, Amazon

  • Summary: Wasn't really a fun game, I couldn't figure out how to get past the first part. I will most likely go back and try again though.

not as good as it looks

AL BADER "Q8 AL BADER", Amazon
14 March 2009
  • 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.

How could they have gone so wrong

  • 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.

below average execution :(

  • 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!

Played the demo once, deleted it

David T. Catmull, Amazon
19 February 2007
  • 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.

defective beauty

Kora, Amazon

  • 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.

Genji - Like dynasty warriors... but no where near.

M. Meah, Amazon
25 May 2011
  • Summary: I have to say, i was looking very forward to it. Even the beginning you play as the guy on the cover, and he is really good. The fighting system is very fluid and easy to get used to, but the camera is the biggest pain i have ever experienced. It does not let you move it around. And it is not the nice fixed camera like Devil May Cry, it moves around, then moves in really awkward ways. This makes fighting a little annoying. The next 2 characters fight styles are not good.

Sorry Mess

Duncan McDonald "Dunk", Amazon
24 November 2008
  • Summary: I picked this up in a bargain bin and it is where it belongs. To be fair the graphics are ace but it is the only thing going for it. First up the camera. Or lack of it. There isn't one. As a result half the time you can't see the enemy so you need to use the map to fight your opponent standing in front of you. Then there is the controls. You character can't run straight and there is a delay between your command and the character moving. Excellent in the heat of battle?

A Strange Game

C H, Pricerunner
16 October 2007
  • Summary: Borrow it off a friend, but don;t be the one stupid enough to buy it.
  • Pros: The graphics are pretty, and the special attack mode looks cool, it's one of those games which at first is awesome, and then slowly over time, it just gets much worse.
  • Cons: No camera control, very repetative and also very pointless. There's one bit of the game that can take you hours simply because they've made the camera angles + jumping so difficult to control. Sound track is pretty weak too.
