Kengo: Master of Bushido

Playstation Illustrated
20 December 2005
  • Excerpt: The graphics in Kengo range from quite beautiful to rather unimpressive. The environments that you battle in, while nowhere near as expansive as I would have liked, are nonetheless very well detailed and quite enjoyable to look at. The character models, on the other hand, are relatively detailed but a little herky-jerky in their animations. You'll also be seeing a whole lot of the same characters, as you fight your way through ranks of students of the various dojos.

Kengo: Master of Bushido

Game Ratio
2 November 2003
  • Excerpt: I could not figure out the point of Kengo. It seems to lack any sign of enjoyment, which pretty much ruins the whole game. It's supposed to be a game that is true to the Japanese samurai culture, forgetting that the point of a game is to have fun. You choose fighters to battle with your swords, not that I could tell any difference between any of them. Fights are usually quick, since you die in 1 or 2 hits. This is annoying, not fun.

Kengo: Masters of Bushido Blade

Thunderbolt Games
14 October 2003
  • Excerpt: Ever since I saw my first Akira Kurosawa film, medieval Japan immediately interested me. Before seeing Seven Samurai the only thing I knew about samurai was what I gathered from the Samurai Pizza Cats cartoon. You wouldn’t believe how inaccurate that cartoon was! Real samurai didn’t loaf around eating pizzas or dressing like Power Rangers; they did what their masters ordered them to.

It's a one-on-one samurai slash-fest

  • Conclusion: And, while being a samurai warrior is something that, I think, most people find appealing, this is a definitely a case of "try before you buy".

  • Excerpt: Que les fans de Bushido Blade se réjouissent, Light Weight, le studio prodige, nous refait le coup des combats de samouraïs dans un Japon médiéval. On prend les mêmes et on recommence ? Pas tout à fait, lisez la suite.

Expert Review

PlayFrance
19 December 2005
  • Conclusion: Les fans de Bushido Blade et de la culture japonaise apprécieront forcément Kengo, ils ne resteront pas insensibles à son excellente ambiance de samouraï . En revanche, les fans de combat bourrin seront très déroutés par son aspect simulation volontairement marqué. Lightweight a beau avoir simplifié le principe des combats emprunté à Bushido Blade, il n'empêche que Kengo n'est pas accessible à tout le monde.
