Onimusha: Blade Warriors PS2 Review

Console Obsession
3 June 2010
  • Excerpt: nother addition to the Onimusha saga has finally arrived, although those yearning for their usual fix of Onimusha stress relief are in for a let down. Onimusha: Blade Warriors is an extension of the series, a spin-off that isn’t entirely lacking of the essence of the series (it’s still all about feudal Japan, big swords and demons).

  • Excerpt: There are some things in life that you just want more of. For me, Capcom’s Power Stone series is one of those things. As far as I was concerned, the Dreamcast’s pretty lacklustre launch lineup was bolstered beyond belief by this little known party beat-’em-up. Once the sequel was released a few months later, all went quiet on the Power Stone front, and nobody has heard of the series since.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Blade Warriors is a spin-off in the lamest sense of the word. Even fans of Onimusha (myself included) will find it difficult to find any redeeming qualities in what is a fundamentally flawed title. Only for those of you absolutely desperate to mutilate you friends by way of samurai sword (and not in real life, obviously).

Onimusha: Blade Warriors

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: There’s one thing that can always be said about Capcom: They’re not afraid of innovation for the gaming industry. This is the company that reinvigorated the survival horror genre with Resident Evil, turned fighting games like Street Fighter 2 into a “sport” by itself, and created a stable of worldwide recognizable titles and characters.

Onimusha Blade Warriors

Gamecell

  • Conclusion: Neither the graphics nor the sound detract from the game, they're functional, but rarely any more than that, although it is nice to see some of the stages rendered in 3D rather than the (particularly flat looking these days) 2D backgrounds of the Onimusha games. As I said at the top of this review - this game fills a niche, as there are no quality Smash Bros or Power Stone type games on the PS2 that will allow you to go to war on 3 mates at once.
  • Pros: Solid multiplayer fun.
  • Cons: Single players are better served elsewhere., Odd source for such a 'fun' multiplayer game.

Onimusha: Blade Warriors Review

TVG
3 June 2004
  • Excerpt: To tide Onimusha fans over until we finally get to sample the delights of Onimusha 3: Demon Siege, comes an unlikely spin-off in the shape of Onimusha: Blade Warriors. Taking characters from the first two titles and placing them into an action/combat title along similar lines to PowerStone, sadly the overall lack of polish and simplistic gameplay results in a title hardly worthy of the Onimusha tagline.
