Summary: It's a pretty certain fact that when it comes to fun party games the Gamecube is the way to go. However Capcom slipped this little number under everyones nose and the end result is a fun solid title. Onimusha Blade warriors is essentially a Super Smash Brothers/Powerstone style fighting game using the Onimusha Characters. The story is simple, Nabuyaga is back and wants to conquer the world.

Summary: I'm a fan of samurai games as well as fighting games. Onimusha Blade Warrior is sort of like Super Smash Brothers with sharp swords. While some might think of this as a bad thing, I thought it was a brilliant idea. Instead of bouncing around with Yoshi and Link and other cartoon characters, I get to have the fast paced multiplayer fun of the Super Smash Brothers gameplay, but with more rich, robust characters.
Summary: the wacky weapons??...hm... Being a hardcore fan of onimusha, I kinda expected it to be kinda gloomy, u know what Im saying? Well, other than that, I thought it was really cool... cant wait until demon seige comes out..
It's no Soul Calibur 2, but it's still a lot of fun.

Summary: I just got the U.S. version of this game, and I'm pretty satisfied with it. I read several previews about it these past few months, but I still wasn't sure what to expect. I'm a huge fighter fan (especially the Tekken series, Soul Calibur 2, Virtua Fighter, DOA series), so I bought it without even demo-ing it. Anyway, it's a great game, but let's just say it's no Soul Calibur 2. It has plenty of unlocks (characters, weapons, backgrounds, etc.
Summary: I played the Japanese version of this game. It was similar to Power Stone for Dreamcast. However, the angle was more like 2D than 3D. You could get many weapons (including silly ones) and attacked each other until one of you won. The characters were taken from Onimusha 1 and 2 plus some new characters. Jujudorma was the best character because she had long range attacks. By the way, the preview of Onimusha 3 was also included for the opening of the game.
