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. Learning certain techniques and quickly learning how to maneuver that pesky camera-angle is a task in itself. The storyline is pretty linear here. 'Enhanced' police-girl who has been trained in the company of those she trusted finds out she was adopted.
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. Then it became difficult, unless you abused the several combos that were built in the game, which made it extremely easy. But all in all, ONI seems to be a normal adventure game.
Summary: Oni is an excellent game in terms of storyline and action. The game takes place in the future as a renegade cop by the name of Konoko. As the story unfolds Konoko begins to learn haunting secrets of her past such as the situation with her family, her past life, and her true identity. This is where she goes berserk and renegade. Konoko possesses a variety of martial arts moves/skills and learns new techniques as she progresses throughout her quest.
Summary: This is a fun game and kicks ... Oni has a lot of fighting moves and the game has great 3D graphics. I just love that it's not a hard game to play and the opponents can be beat. Though, I personally find one major drawback in this game are the camera angles - the camera always stays at the same distance behind Oni causing the walls of a room to get in the way and block the view of what is happening.
Summary: This is a fun game and kicks... Oni has a lot of fighting moves and the game has great 3D graphics. Though, I personally find one major drawback in this game are the camera angles - the camera always stays at the same distance behind Oni causing the walls of a room to get in the way and block the view of what is happening. As a result many times when I'm fighting an opponent and I can't see what I'm doing. This is a flaw that needn't be.
Summary: Oni for the PC is a great game. But for the PS2, some of the thrill is gone. The gameplay is the same, but the controls are lousy. Generally, when you turn left or right you will accidentally nudge the joystick so that you look up or down at an angle that makes it hard for you to shoot. Level 3 is almost impossible to beat because of the [weak] controls. Another problem is the lack of ammo.
Summary: My twelve year old son bought this game. After renting it, he just HAD to have it. Now for him to use his allowance to buy this game told me how much he enjoyed it. Many missions seem to be near impossible to complete without the cheat codes. And the ending is set to either end there, yet has the option of being continued. I guess the makers want to see how the public reacts. Not one to be replayed and replayed, but it will keep you busy for about a month.
Summary: If your the type of gamer who liked the Tomb Raider series, then you might like this game. Although the controls aren't all that good, the gameplay kind of makes up for it. The storyline kinda makes te main character look more like the bad guy instead of the good guy. This game does have some good action, but corny lines. So, if you like action/shooting games, this game might delight you for a while!
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. You are soposed to be a futuristic female cop. You don't know anything about yourself, but other character's dialogue let you know that you are not human (at least not completely).
Summary: This game (I thought) was going to be an action packed thriller with the best storyline to buy. Though, when I played it, It is an action packed game. Not really a thriller and NOT a good storyline. It has seventeen levels and once you get to each one it gets more boring and boring. Though, I would reccomend not to buy this, but to rent it because there's really no thrill in playing a boring bought game more than once.
