Summary: There is not much I can say about... I really enjoyed the graphics which were very smooth and detailed. That's one of the aspects I enjoy most in a game. Secondly, both characters are particularly different when choosing them to kick ass. THe big guy used a huge kind of club and I had lots of fun getting rid of villains.
Summary: I can understand why a lot of people would love this game. The visuals are impressive, the story is OK and there is plenty of action. I did enjoy ' Genji ' for the most part but I can't deny that I also found it frustrating at times. So this is my take what's good and bad about the game. The Good; 1) As stated, the game does look very good and the look of ancient Japan is captured very nicely.
Excerpt: Genji: Dawn of the Samurai is one of the best action hack and slash flavored with some RPG elements game I've every played. It does look similar to any of Capcom's Onimusha games. If you're a fan of flashy action and Japanese mythology, I would recommend you to try this game. The story is rather a mythical themed with rare magical stones called Amahagane as one of the main focus of the story.
Pros: Great game overall, flashy and smooth actions
Cons: Story and gameplay too short, low replayability value
Excerpt: Its like the Capcom's Onimusha Games and feels like one of those flashy samurai japanese game mythology things. the main problem is that the gameplay is short and it ends too soon. It has a mythical theme, based from thirteenth century Japan where you are under god-like (Powerful) and heartless rulers and obviously you need to beat them before they become too powerful...
Pros: Graphics, Controls, Tons of battles, great combat mode
Summary: It is far too short that is why but if you ignore that fact it has great gameplay and the graphics are lovely the music suits the game very well. It plays a bit like Devil May Cry and Ominusha (And so it should do considering it was made by the same guy Sony obviously funded it rather than Capcom).
