Summary: This game was my childhood. though I never completed the game because I found some levels difficult. my dad probably sold it so I decided to re buy it to complete it. the game has such an originality about it. the settings in the game are so nice. they make you feel as if you are actually on holiday inside the game. the game is mostly hand drawn and painted rather then computer generated.
Excerpt: After selling two million copies worldwide, Capcom's oriental action-survival horror game, Onimusha: Warlords, seemed due a sequel. Despite the original game being stuck in developmental limbo for years (switching from N64 to PSone, then finally to PS2 over that time), a sequel came out just a year after the first game's release in 2001.
Pros: Great graphics, involving gameplay .
Cons: Uses archaic game mechanics, terrible voice acting, short .
Excerpt: *A review of Onimusha 2.* Whilst the sequel may be magnificent in size compared to it's predecessor, it felt as if the flaws too had become magnified. The game only works with the Dual Shock 2 (or similar), despite the d-pad being used for movement, and the map feature - mapped to R3 - being accessible via the Start menu.
Excerpt: This game takes place about 10 years later after the first Onimusha game which was on the Playstation 2 and made a phenomenal success worldwide with its trademark hack and slash gameplay and stylish visuals. Here in the sequel we learn of a samurai warrior named Jubei Yagyu who has returned to his home village only to learn that it has been massacred by an onslaught of demon soldiers lead by the inferious Lord Nobunaga Oda.
Pros: Spectacular visuals, Awesome boss fights, Satisfying gameplay
Cons: A tad short, More of the same from the first game
Excerpt: Onimusha Warlords was one of the PS2's first ever smash hit titles, drawing adulation from fans of both survival horror and hack 'n' slash. Capcom must've known they'd be on to a winner as even before Onimusha Warlords was released, this sequal was already in production. It's never been like Capcom to tamper with a successful formula (see 30+ versions of Street Fighter for evidence) and this is evident in Onimusha 2.
Excerpt: --Onimusha 2:Samurai's Destiny-- --£14.99-- --GAME-- --Introduction-- I bought this with a 2 for £30 offer in game and I was very impressed. It's tones better than the first one and much more better, visually better and very playable, easy to play and a great story line. Dodgy voice acting and cameras aside, this is one superb adventure.
Excerpt: Japanese films always have this quality about them that I can’t quite pin down. Take ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ for instance – it was an epic, with superbly choreographed fight scenes, and a storyline that was guaranteed to confuse the bejeebers out of a good number of its viewers.
Pros: Fast - paced, great gameply, breathtaking visuals
Cons: Dire voiceover, dodgy camera angles in - game
Summary: This game has got great grafix and amazing cut seans (although there are only about four cut seans with the super computer grafix) they are worth working to see. Tjis game has what looks like real photo backgrounds, although some cannot be for they have like zombie bones and stuff like in caves. If you view the people from a good distance, they actually look REAL! This game has some of the bast grafix i have seen in a game.
Excerpt: The designers of this game widely took into account the defects of the first episode and we feel one better good masters of the PS2. I am going to try to make you discover this game. After a first opus which will remain like one of the first great plays of PlayStation 2, Capcom repeats with Onimusha 2 Samourai' S Destiny. With longer nature, more complex, immersif, more beautiful, and finally much more complete, this continuation is not satisfied with a simple evolution.
Excerpt: So whats all this then?? A sequel? Samurai's Destiny takes place several years after the original Onimusha left off. The Demon King, Nobunaga, defeated by Samanosuke, has returned once again to wreak havoc with his demon armies. Sound familiar?? You'd never have guessed for such a theme in a sequel now would you.... OK, story aside, whats the game itself like??
