Summary: To be honest, this is my first time ever playing this series. A friend of mine recommended it, so I decided to buy it and I was not disappointed. Taking control of a samurai and his destiny as your decisions in the game affect the outcome of it all is a concept I can well grasp. Smooth combat and a varied amount of weapons to choose from make this a game I do enjoy. Few things I need to complain about are the camera controls and certain aspects of the gameplay.
Summary: The game was INCREDIBLE! I absolutely loved the game; and that it shipped to my location faster than I had expected. Its condition was superb, it worked on my old worn out PS2 like it was brand new.
Summary: First Of All, let me say. this game was amazing! the best story line i've seen in a while. the fighting system was way better improved from the first one. although the english voice acting was cheesy it was still pretty good and it put the mood right for the atmosphere. the seller i bought it from was great, i received it in only 3-4 days. and that is the best shipping i have ever received. I totally recommend this game to anybody who like. blood. sword fighting.
Summary: What a let down. The first version of this game was great. I so wanted the second version to just pick up where the 1st left off. It didn't. Sure, it looks better. There are even more choices that can be made. Unfortunately... this game just sucks. And I LOVED THE 1st ONE! I don't know how they could screw it up so bad. Buyer beware.

Summary: Being a big fan of the first I bought Way of the Samurai 2 with high hopes for a game with lots of good swordplay in it and for the most part my hopes were fulfilled. There are even more character designs which makes the game even more enjoyable and there are many, many more swords to choose from (Not to mention some of the "Special Swords" from the first game.) However, this game isn't as flawless as the original.

Summary: Way of the Samurai was a great fighting game with multiple endings based on your honor. Way of the Samurai 2 adds better graphics and more paths! You start by customizing your warrior - choosing a head, clothes, sword and ohter items. You can unlock more choices as you go, which is of course half the fun. You have a "sword safe" to store swords in from game to game. You've also got an "item box".
Summary: if you like swords in any way, get this game. i've played the first one and i liked that one a lot but it lacked what the second game has now and thats why this game is so great. graphics are great and two of the things i like is that you can choose a differnt way to play it everytime so you never get bored, and there are lots of sword.
Summary: I have owned the American version for about 1 week and I have been actively playing the game getting to several endings. I loved the first one. This one is far more complicated.This game is definately not for young children. There are themes here such as drug use, sex, and lots of violence. For the adults buying this game.
