Excerpt: The year is 1998, and PlayStation owners are introduced to Brave Fencer Musashi, a fast paced action platformer. The wild haired, diminutive dual sword-wielding samurai managed to stand out from the other mascot driven titles thanks to his special abilities.
Excerpt: Musashi is back in Musashi: Samurai Legend . This new game in the Musashi series has seen a variety of improvements, from the manga shaded graphics to the ability to pick things up. It’s far from perfect, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth playing. Still interested?
Summary: The second release of the Musashi series makes its debut on the PS2 featuring exhilarating, fast-paced, action-packed gameplay utilizing manga shaded graphics. Like a true samurai, Musashi's powers of observation will pay off in the heat of battle as he channels this energy to learn his opponents'...
Conclusion: And so that concludes Musashi: Samurai Legend. Rather a mixed bag as far as both RPGs and platform action games go, and never quite reaching the pinnacle of either game type. While MSL does have its faults, it also looks great and is good fun, even if it can’t make up its own mind about what it’s...
Pros: Overall animation and graphical style, Easy to pick up and play
Cons: Poor voice "acting", Occasional problems with the camera
Conclusion: There’s nothing here you haven’t seen before. Nothing innovative or new brought to the genre so it’s not exactly a step forward in the video game industry. It’s all about entertainment; to step away from reality and hopefully play through some fun experiences with Musashi.
Conclusion: IN FIN DEI CONTI Musashi Samurai Legend è un Action/RpG di tutto rispetto, che però non spicca più di tanto dalla massa : motore grafico solido, gameplay ben congegnato… peccato che il tutto sia diretto in gran parte ai più piccoli.
Conclusion: Musashi Samurai Legend est un Action RPG à conseiller aux débutants : pas trop difficile, pas trop long, il bénéficie d’un gameplay intéressant grâce à quelques trouvailles originales, et d’une réalisation graphique de bonne facture.
