Onimusha 2: Samurai’s Destiny PS2 Review

Console Obsession
3 June 2010
  • Excerpt: What’s with all the Resident Evil comparisons? Everyone tends to refer to Onimusha as “Resi with swords”, and Capcom’s other brilliant spawn, Devil May Cry, is known as the “next-gen Resi”. Sure, both are survival-horror games but Onimusha is totally different in comparison to zombie shooting and puzzle solving. Just because they have the same elements and belong to the same genre doesn’t mean that either one of the above mentioned games is a Resi spin-off.

  • Excerpt: One of the unlockable features of the first Onimusha was a thirty-second trailer for Onimusha 2. Largely speculated to not include Samanosuke, fans of the first game eagerly awaited the next chapter in the Onimusha saga. While the Xbox release of the game with added content under the name Genma Onimusha served to quench their thirst for demon slaying in feudal Japan, for others this was just not enough and in true Capcom fashion, a sequel was supplied as promised, much...
  • Pros: + Branching storyline lends replay factor.
  • Cons: - As usual, the voice acting is horrid.

He ends up in the mining town of Imasho, where he meets a variety of allies, including Magoichi, Kotaro, Ekei and Oyu, who will lend a hand to help him defeat the demonic minions.
  • Pros: Visually gorgeous, Longer, better story, Gift system and allies are a nice addition

Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny – Review

  • Excerpt: To accompany the recent release (and my upcoming review) of Onimusha 3: Demon Siege , I'm recapping my comments for Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny in case you missed them. The favorable score at the bottom of this page may come as a surprise considering that I completely panned the first game, Warlords , but the second installment of Capcom's action series is much better than the first. (And the brand-new third installment is markedly improved over the second.

  • Excerpt: The original Onimusha was something of a surprise for me. I expected a feudal Japan Resident Evil knockoff in most respects and was completely wrong on nearly all counts. It ended up going down as one my favorite games for the early PlayStation 2 library, and offered something few games have been able to match: a purely visceral and gratifying sensation of just slicing the crap out of everything that moves.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Onimusha 2: Samurai’s Destiny has been quite some time in the making and after playing through the game I can confidently say that that time was not wasted. Right from the first pre-rendered cut-scene you’ll notice the amazing amount of detail that this game boasts. The second part of this demon-slashing samurai trilogy can be best described as bigger, better, and longer. Everything you loved about the first game has been expanded and refined to a shiny blood-red polish.
