Summary: Was dissapointed the game was boring. The story was bland the graphics were sub par the fightning was at least diffucult but became about spamming the insta kill button more than a variety of attacks. My recomendation is only get if your a huge samurai fan otherwise just rent it.
Summary: i am just starting the game but so far i like it. its a little to open for me im an old school gamer so m used to at least a tutorial level i also wish that the sword shop was in the same place as your home.
Summary: This game is really great, especially if you have played the others in the series. The graphics aren't next-gen, but it looks like the others in the series, and that works for me. However, the game freezes now and then on your fifth or sixth playthrough. May want to just rent it if you can find it.
Summary: I'm a history buff particularly interested in the history of feudal Japan and the era of the Samurai. Thus just about any game that features Samurai attracts my attention. The various narrative descriptions of The Way of the Samurai described to me a game focused heavily on story and role playing with combat being at best a 1/3 focus of the game. I was disappointed to discover that combat is 90% of the focus of this game.

Summary: Way of the Samurai 3 is an open-world game styled like an old-school samurai film. In some ways, it lives up to the standards of the series; in others, it overextends itself. In WOTS3, you play as a wandering samurai caught in the kingdom of Amana during the Warring States period. There are several factions you can choose to ally yourself with: the powerful Fujimori clan, the rural Ouka clan, or the oppressed farmers of Takatane.
Summary: Way of the Samurai 3 seems, more or less, to be nothing more than a reiteration of the past games. That is to say that it doesn't deviate very much from its predecessors. While this is a good thing to fans of the series, it strikes me--an avid gamer--as a bit cheap. Is it worth the $40? Sure. Any more, though, and you're being cheated. Which is why I feel cheated as I was one to pre-order this game.
Conclusion: This game is very close to reality when it comes to sword fighting. The moves are realistic and not surrealistic like other samurai games. The only thing that reaaally bothered me was that when you get hit you die and the game starts from the start. As many times as you die the game shuts down and you are being transferred to the game's starting screen and restart the whole mission from scratch.
