Genji: Dawn of the Samurai by Sony

Game Monkeys

  • Summary: All in all, Genji: Dawn of the Samurai is a fun, though not particularly remarkable, game. The decidedly theatrical style and awesome focus mode will keep fans of the genre happy, but the simplistic combat and short campaign won't have you coming back to it any time soon.
  • Pros: Great feel and focus mode
  • Cons: Short and Repetitive

  • Excerpt: In September 2005, Sony Computer Entertainment America released Genji: Dawn of the Samurai on the PlayStation 2 console.

  • Excerpt: Genji is one of those games that are striking from the outset. The introductory movie, complete with action, death, war, a beautiful soundtrack and an interesting plot, sets out the game’s stall, and whilst in-game, the quality of the presentation stays at the same high level. Your task is to take control of Yoshitsune and Benkei, who are tasked with clearing ancient Japan of the evil Heishi clan, who have recently taken control of the nation, leading with an violent and...

  • Excerpt: Genji: Dawn of the Samurai does not disappoint visually. Simply saying the game is beautiful is an understatement, as the game looks incredible, especially in motion. Backgrounds take the pre-rendered route with a few animations thrown in to give them life. The level of detail depth found throughout each level is simply amazing and there are many times where you'll find yourself pushing the right analog stick in hopes of swinging the camera around the corner of a...

  • Excerpt: Odds are, if you could suck the DNA out of an Onimusha game and splice it with the genetic code you lifted from Sega's Shinobi , the resultant offspring would look a lot like Genji: Dawn of the Samurai. Yet, in the same way that two average human beings can combine to create a Tiger Woods or Mario Lemieux, Genji takes the gifts of both parents and turns them into something transcendent—something that resembles its parents, but exceeds them in a lot of really important...

  • Summary: Once Kumai is enabled, you need to press the square button at a certain moment before the enemies attack you. Successfully downing one foe allows you to move onto the next opponent. You can chain these Kumai attacks together to take out a series of opponents while limiting your exposure to their attacks and any damage. While you can’t use this technique in every encounter, it’s most effective when you’re surrounded by multiple opponents.
