Summary: Oni is such a class game, although the Graphics are a bit [plain] looking but the gameplay is awsome, the Story is class also and so is the plot. I don't usually like PC gaming i usually prefer Consoles. I don't like the PS2 cause i think its a bit over rated just cause its made by sony doesn't mean its the most excellent console in the world but if your into Third Person, Shooters, hand to hand combat games or Anime you'll enjoy this game it kept me going i could play...
Summary: When I first played this game, I was like, "whoa." I think the graphics are good but sometimes slow down making it difficult to fight during combat. Each level has an objective to keep you motivated. while playing you can press X and Konoko will shout a phrase such as "You're going to get beat by a girl!" at the opponent. She occasionaly has a wardrobe change. The game has many plot twists. A major disappointment to me was the lack of music.
Summary: It takes a 3rd person perspective similar to Tomb Raider with the camera always following behind you and over your head. The controls start off as complicated for the average PS2 player, but a person used to computer games shouldn't find it too strange with the left analog mapping to the arrow keys and right analog mapping to the mouse for the average computer 1st person shooter. The combat system is simple with your standard punching and kicking techniques.
Summary: A lot of people gave Oni a bad review, including some magazines. There were also many good reviews. The truth is I can't tell you if you'll like it or not, it all depends on your preference. The entire game is interesting. The story is great if you love anime. The weapons are unique and fun, but there is no real depth to the weapon system. That's because you can only have one at a time. Ammo is limited.
Summary: Despite all the reviews I read on this game, I rather enjoyed it. I did however beat the whole thing in less than 24 hours, owing not to my gaming prowess, but rather to the lack of having a life. Ha ha ha. Anyways, I thought the 3-D environments were interesting, and easier to navigate due to their sparse nature. They gave the game the not so distant future feel. What was difficult was when you actually fought.
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: I bought this and SSX at the same time and at first iI wound up playing SSX more. The enviroments are very dark, and so far rather uninteresting. Sometimes it is really hard to see where you're going. But as I've played it more and gotten used to the controls, I've begun to really enjoy it. The moves are different and really effective, and basically the whole game play is pretty fun.
Summary: I knew I had to preorder Oni the second I could after reading about it and even seeing it in action at MWSF. I was disappointed when I heard there was not going to be multiplayer, but that didn't stop me from wanting it. Anyway, to the review: This game is fun. No matter what people say about it's grraphics, controls, or lack of multiplayer, this game has some of the best gameplay out of any game I've played since Myth II.
A suprisingly good anime shooter, definitely a favourite!

Summary: Oni recieved mixed reviews from critics and gamers around the world. It was said to be a mediocre experience, and many passed it off as a reject because it wasn't a big name. The game sells at very low prices (20 pence minimum in some exchange stores like Computer Exchange), and to this day the friends I ask who play these kind of games turn a blind eye to it. But that's natural. It has recieved this reputation.
