Summary: If you like the samurai period in Japan history and like swordplay, this is a worthy purchase. It's a different kind of game, to be sure, and the combat can be repetitive and monotonous if you want it to, but it does have the potential to be complex if you work at it. The way the story progresses is not straight-forward at all, so if you like exploring how different actions and conversations result in different endings, you will get a huge kick out of this.
Summary: I used to own the first Way of the Samurai game on the PS2 and it was the best Samurai type of video game I'v ever played next to Bushido Blade on the PS1. I'm a sucker for Samurai video games and Way of the Samurai is one of the top games for anyone looking to hack and slash at their enemies. Way of the Samurai 2, unfortunately I never got my hands on but eventually I did rented it one time and played it. It was better yet some features in the game was questionable.
Flawless Execution in gameplay and style, not so good in graphics.

Summary: This is a game just like the orginal Way of the Samurai ps2 game, with the added features of part 2 as well. However unlike part 2 you can decide during a cutscene to kill or surrender before the comentary. This opens up a more traverse approch to the story, unlike talking. The gameplay is rather unique. With blocking and instant killing there are combos to aquire anlong the way.
Summary: I have been a big fan of the Way of the Samurai series since it started on the PS2. The game has a choose your own adventure branching storyline mixed with a very fun and robust sword fighting mechanic. My main draw is all the different sword types, styles, and combos. This game also allows you to make your own sword by collecting and choosing thru pieces and then assigning it combos of your desire.
Summary: Although the game has everything I expected, the lack of the tutorial ensured a costly error within the first 5 minutes of game play. I was prompted to press the L1 button when some farmers arrived and they ran off, thinking i was out to kill them for no reason. Other than that early mistake, and the immensely corny dialogue that was so very rampant in the first 2 games, the game play ends up being a lot of fun.
Summary: For those who have played the first two Way of the Samurai titles, you know what to expect here with the third installment. For the unintitated, it would be best to know what this game is not. It's not GTA with swords or a hack-and-slash game, it's purely a decision-based system in which you tell the story where to go by triggering inklings or scenes or behaving differently.

Summary: приобрел после, прочтения описания и, просмотров нескольких роликов расположенных на ютюбе. сначала несколько непривычная обстановка и недостаточно большая карта привели в некоторое уныние. однако позже несколько разобравшись в ситуации и несколько раз трагически заканчивая игру так толком и не начав ее, увлекся пытаясь создать достойного самурая.
