Suimioni: Demon Arts review

1 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Sumioni: Demon Arts had me intrigued at first. Without knowing what the game really is, I expected it to be similar to the Wii game, Muramasa: Demon Blade. And why not, they both have a similar setting, and both have the word demon in the name! Alright, I admit that last reason was a stretch, but honestly, can you blame me? What I got, however, was something completely different.

Sumioni: Demon Arts Review

28 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Sumioni: Demon Arts is a gorgeous game that plays well and offers a unique experience all around. The frustration of going back to see all it has to offer, though, is a huge barrier to entry.
  • Pros: + Gorgeous visuals, + Great use of the touch screens, + Lots of content...
  • Cons: ...that is a pain to access, Lack of stage select, Limited combat options

Review: Sumioni: Demon Arts

26 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Unfortunately, Sumioni: Demon Arts is a mixed bag. On one hand, you have a beautiful game with a clever premise; on the other, you have an extremely limiting level progression system leading to more headaches than victories. Combining that with a limited arsenal and level grinding gives you a game that misses the mark. Underneath the bottlenecks and frustrations, there is the potential for a great game, but it just can’t seem to get out from under its burdens.

Sumioni : Demon Arts

27 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Bien que sorti en catimini sur le PlayStation Store des jeux Vita, Sumioni aura certainement intrigué plus d'un joueur curieux de découvrir ce que pouvait bien renfermer ce titre aux airs d'Okami. Il faut dire que ses visuels éclaboussés de taches d'encre et teintés de mythologie japonaise rappellent immanquablement le titre du regretté Clover Studio.
