Summary: This game had some good ideas going for it but the lack of tweaking of controls and laziness of the graphics lowered its chances. First off there are many, many control schemes which takes time getting use to.

Summary: ...is ONI. You see, I actually borrowed this game from the library for PC, after hearing several bad reviews about it (seeing if they were right, heh). However, after burning it and playing it, I was engulfed in ONI's world...for an hour or so.
Summary: Graphics. I first played this game in a PC demo, and it looked like a great title to me. Actually this game was the first I bought when I managed to get the PS2. I was excited wondering what the graphics would be in this new number-crunching-console and I wasn't disapointed at first. Story.
Summary: First of all, this game is extremely fun to play. It kept me at my computer for hours at a time! The controls are tricky at first, and the special moves take practice (and patience) to pull off, but before long they become second nature. And the fighting...oh, the fighting is cool!
Summary: controls are alittle hard to deal with and it does get kinda hard to remeber how to do whata when you need to in a fight. If you don't have a gun or get into a fight with more than one fighter you better have soem more life ready to use.
Summary: I found this game to be pleasing to the eye. It is a beautiful game and the levels are gorgeous. But the gameplay is rather frustrating. I found one of the most annoying things was that it was almost impossible to hit a moving targert.
Summary: I'm editing my review (...). The review as originally written is still below. However, I want to state for the record that I am a huge Bungie fan, and Halo is awesome. I am just dissapointed in Oni, plain and simple. Oni could have been a masterpiece, and it may be one yet.
Excerpt: Oni was one of the games that was thrown in free when I bought my Playstation 2, but don't let that fool you into any rash judgements about the quality of the game. In fact, despite my having completed it a number of times and the age of the game, Oni still warrants playing from time to time today.
Excerpt: I remember when i first got a ps2 this one of the games i got with it. I remember before christamas day i had gone to game and searched around the preownd games and there was oni for under £10 i looked at the back cover and it looked pretty good.
Excerpt: Oni which stands for "demon" in Japanese is a 3rd person action game that is brought to you by Bungie and a gathering of developers. The inspiration comes from Japanese animation and this is where it's artistic direction and storyline comes from.
Pros: Good game play, interesting game and lots of action .
