Genji: Dawn of the Samurai by Sony

Game Monkeys
5 March 2013
  • 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: Chances are when you see a character roaming around a game screen with a sword, nine times out of ten any action that follows will degenerate into a mindless hack and slash where you swing your weapon at anything that moves. Not too surprising, right? I mean, just about anyone can swing a sword.

  • Excerpt: In September 2005, Sony Computer Entertainment America released Genji: Dawn of the Samurai on the PlayStation 2 console. To be honest, the game reminds me of the Chinese action film, Hero , starring Jet Li, with its beautiful scenery and fast-paced heavy action.

  • 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.

  • Summary: Genji: Dawn of the Samurai has managed to build a love/hate relationship with me during the time that I’ve sat down and played it. On one hand it’s got a beautiful landscape and character design, excellent music, amazing CG cut scenes, strong graphics, a near flawless frame rate, and a very strong...

  • Excerpt: Rather than come up with a brand-new concept for their third-person swordfest, the folks at Game Republic clearly used Capcom's Onimusha franchise as the blueprint for their game.
