Summary: The overall game was decent. It had great graphics, some things could only be obtained by using one character then switching off to the other, awesome music, and an interesting storyline. The only downside I could find was that the game was too short.
Summary: When I first played this game, I thought that it was really fun. I enjoyed that the game was entirely in Japanese. It gave me the feeling that the setting really was in feudal Japan. I enjoy hack and slash genres such as Ninja Gaiden and God of War, but Genji isn't the creme de la creme.
Summary: I was ready to give this game the highest rating, but it has one glaring flaw that I just can't ignore. And that flaw is its length. Up until I finished the game, I was completely baffled by the mediocre scores it received from the media.
Summary: if you like dynasty warriors you'll like this game! this is a button smasher game but sort of solving puzzle game, the background is beautiful and the gameplay is fun! you upgrade weapons, gain expereince points, etc.
Summary: Genji takes the standard slashing game formula and adds to it with special "Kumai" attacks. In these special attacks, the player can slow time to unleash devistating counter attacks against enemies. The game is fun, with intuitive play control and wonderful graphics.
Summary: "Genji: Dawn of the Samurai" takes a cue or two from the "Onimusha" playbook, though it actually exceeds the two latest entries in that series. Yes, it's another samurai hack and slash on a PS2 full of 'em, but it's easily one of the best.
Summary: This is an excellent game that captures the feel of the samurai very well. It is also the most graphically beautiful game yet on the ps2. Although the lack of Widescreen support is what lets it down.
Summary: Bottom line: if you love samurai games this is a rent and if you really really love samurai games this is a buy used. The potential to be an excellent game is there, and ultimately, that is why it is a let down. The game is simply beautiful to behold and listen to.
