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..

Camera Control would help

  • Summary: So I bought this game because I actually still enjoy the PS2 predacessor. The story works but the camera sucks. I honestly never lose interest in a game after the first level is complete but I was losing intrest in this on several points in the game. with no camera control i found myself fighting a barrage of hidden enemies due to lack of camera control. I enjoyed the story but hated the gameplay due to this one flaw.

I've Played Better...

  • 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.

Early

RG69, Amazon

  • 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...

genji days of the blade

  • Summary: If you like button smashing,no checkpoints,shortage of save points and general frustration from re-playing chapters from dying or simply not making a jump, then this game is for you. Camera angles are awful, you are most often fighting without seeing your enemy. The game does have good scenery. Get uncharted {either one ] if you want action fun.

Some things missing but a great PS3 game...

GC, Amazon

  • 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.

If you like samurai games, maybe you'll like this one.

  • Summary: I've bought this game because it was in a good price and my girlfriend wanted to play this one for a long time and we couldn't find it in our country. The game is fun and will keep you entertained for a while. Don't expect anything revolutionary though the biggest flaw i've found is the camera... you can't do anything about it, the camera is automatic.

  • Summary: Pros: -Great Graphics -Stunning Visuals -Interesting story line. -Shows off what the PS3 can show with the blu-ray. -Menus are bright and feel welcoming. Cons: -Not that fun, just another hack and slash game. -Kind of difficult to control the characters movements and attacks. -Fixed camera angle makes it hard to play. -Fighting seems repetitive. -Loading screen after every area.
