  • Excerpt: You'd think that a character with as much martial arts mojo as a Samurai could dispatch a mere modest thug in a single swipe of the katana, but in Way of the Samurai 2, that isn't the case.

  • Excerpt: It might come as a heavy shock to some gamers - particularly those who haven't beaten the game's predecessor - to see the closing credits roll after only two or three hours of play in Way of the Samurai 2 . If those few hours consisted mainly of wandering around slashing random strangers, some might even write off the game as pointless. It is possible to play all the way through without getting involved in much of anything, but that's why the game is so short.

Way Of The Samurai 2

  • Excerpt: "Way of the Samurai 2 on kunnianhimoinen yritys tehdä mahdollisimman epälineaarinen, toimintapainoitteinen rooli/seikkailupeli, josta valitettavasti paistaa vahva keskeneräisyyden tuntu. Pelin pelaajalle tarjoama valinnanvapaus luo osin toimivan illuusion vapaudesta, mutta osin pelin tekijöiltä tuntuu unohtuneen se, että todellinen valinnanvapaus tarkoittaa myös sitä, ettei vaihtoehtojen pitäisi olla liian eriarvoisia.
  • Pros: + Runsaasti eri loppuja, + Taistelut, + Valinnanvapaus
  • Cons: - Lyhyt, - Katastrofaalinen ääninäyttely, - Valinnanvapaus osittain vain näennäistä

Way of the Samurai 2

  • Conclusion: Vad som till en början känns som ett ruskigt fult och blockigt spel växer ett par snäpp tack vare fin miljö och bra animationer. Spelet har oväntat bra stämning, vilket tillsammans med den relativt stora friheten höjer spelkänslan flera snäpp. Striderna, som får ses som spelets huvuddel, känns löjligt yxiga i början, men när man har vant sig vid systemet är de riktigt underhållande.
  • Pros: Det fria upplägget, De olika sluten, Passande musik, 60 Hz-läge
  • Cons: Lång tid att starta spelet, Stel grafik, Roligare strider i ettan, Fantasilösa arbetsuppgifter, Värdelösa röstskådespelare

  • Excerpt: Das Leben eines Samurai ist kein einfaches. Das hat uns Way of the Samurai1 damals schon gezeigt, doch nun kommt der zweite Teil des Spiels und wir erwarten voller Spannung die Entwicklung dieses interessanten Titels. Wer ebenfalls gespannt ist auf dieses Spiel, der sollte den Bericht lesen.
  • Pros: Sehr hoher Wiederspielwert, Aufbau einer eigenen Geschichte
  • Cons: Teilweise nervige Sounds der NPC´s, Gewöhnungsbedürftige Steuerung
