Summary: I had expected a horrid game based from all the mediocre reviews this game had gotten. Curiously the magazine critics were harsher on this game than actual players of the game. This is not a button-mashing game like DOA and Tekken. It is an elegant simulator that requires finesse and timing. You need to be able to see the trajectory of your opponent in order to be able to strike with success.
Summary: This is a game, more games should be made like this. Im a person that likes fighting games but i cant stand the skilless button slamming games where all that matters is you pressed A faster then the other guy. Untill i found Kengo: Master of Bushido, i thought Tekken games were my only salvation. But now im tearing down that church and building a shrine to Kengo.
Summary: I love this game! I'm getting so bored of the same old fight games. That are button smashers and have no strategy during the fight. This game is a breath of fresh air. I love the part where you build your character up through training. Like in a roll playing game. The fighting gameplay is great. I love the way your chartacters start out as students and if your good enough, become masters. But the end is far from near.
Summary: This is one of the funnest games for people who enjoy fighting games that also require strategy and thought. You begin the game as a novice with no skills, but you train in various activities, you fight your way through the Dojos and you become an expert. You can make your own combos and decide how you want to grow into a master. This game is also very relaxing, there is no irritating music or bright colors.
Summary: This is one of the best games for people who like combat games and strategy games. You begin the game as a novice with no skills, but you train and evolve into a Boshido master, as you the gamer become a better player you're character becomes a better fighter. This game requires strategy and thought. There aren't any bright colors or jarring music, just authentic Japanese Dojo settings (complete with Tatami mats and Calligraphy) and natural sounds.
Summary: This is the best game of its kind, pure and simple. Unlike many other one-on-one fighting games, Kengo does not have strange "special attacks," such as lightning bolts, fireballs, etc. Rather, the game is based on realistic Japanese sword fighting techniques. The graphics are perhaps not as good as some other PS2 games, they are certainly not bad, and do not detract from the game in any way. The best part of the game is its realism.
Summary: geez this is so not fair this game deserves waaaaaaaaay more than five stars! so the graphics aren't as good as some other games. this game rocks (altho the blood looks kinda weird)! This is the most awesome game iv'e played in a really long time i rented it yesterday and alredy i NEED to buy it!!!
Summary: This for some may not tickle the eyes as much as the new genre standard, such as capcoms flaver of the year and others like twisted metal extc, but as far as playing skill it makes the grade and then some!! looking for this writer to jump back at us on this one. maybe this time he'lladd more eye candi? Ha Ha Ha...
