Just another hack and slash.

Summary: Honestly I bought this game because I was trying to buy old games for my recent purchase of my PS3 God of War Bundle pack. For the price, and the basic gameplay, it was worth it. If you are looking for more in a game, then this is not it.
At $4.99 it's great! Anything more, it's utter crapola...1 Star

Summary: First, anyone who gave this game less than three stars...I understand. I picked this up used for $4.99 in 2012 on impulse (I was buying some other "real" games) but I played the original PS2 version and the fond memories and price made me make the purchase. This review is from a 2012 perspective, so if I'm hard on something, say...cough..
Summary: Genji Days of the Blade was a launch title for the PS3, I was reluctant to get it when it was $69 due to my previous negative encounter with Genji: Dawn of Samurai. Its safe to say at this point I'm glad I waited and picked this up for $5 at a pawnshop. Genji Days of the Blade (Genji 2) takes place pretty much after the events of Genji 1, people who didn't play the first Genji need not worry, the events of the game are shown to you before you start playing Genji 2.
Summary: One of the early PS3 games, this one really doesn't take full advantage of the PS3 capabilities. I played and solved the original Genji on PS2 which was fun to play. This game however seems to take a backward step in gameplay. The camera is horrible. The right control stick which for most games allow you to change the camera angle is used for a dodge move, so many times I had to walk the character around to see things including enemies which were noted on the mini map...
Summary: The price is good. Actually I have advanced 75% percent of the game. You've to start on the feudal Japan, then on the Underworld, then on the Over world in order to finally finish the game. There are a lot of bosses to defeat like a giant type of cat, a crab, a beautiful big monster who tries to enter the over world. You have different enemies trough the game as you continue, like bigger soldiers, different weapons, giant spider, creatures, etc.
Summary: When I saw this game I thought it was going to be good, but I was wrong. There are so many things arong with this game ist not even funny. For everything it does right, it doubles what it does wrong. When I bought my PS3 this game came with it so it couldn't be helped. PROS. -The graphics this game shows the power of the playstation 3, the graphics are amazing from the lushes grass outdoors, from the sprinkaly sparkaly waters, to the detailed buildings.
Summary: I have been playing this game for a while. And although this game has (or had as it is already released) the potential to become a great game, the developers blew it big time by some unnecessary intrusions a regular gamer will feel at unease with. First off, the graphics are very well developed (mind you, im playing on a standard TV, so im one of those who should really feel at agony here). Crisp and clean is the way i could describe them.
Genji: Days of the Blade (PS3): Giant Enemy Crabs!
5 August 2009
Summary: Genji Days of the Blade is a sequel to the hack and slash on the Playstation 2. The story follows our main character Genkuro Yoshitsune who wants to be leader of his clan, however the Heishi from the first game he believed defeated are now back and our hero must rise to the challenge once again. There are some rather lengthy story sequences in this game but I couldn't really get into them.
