Summary: Bought this game on a whim, since I remember playing it as a child. I've played them all and 2 is definitely weakest of the series. It just doesn't capture the imagination like the first one. The characters and the plot are just meh. All in all it's an ok game, just don't compare it to the other entries in the series.
Way of the Samurai 2 (PS2): Faster paced and more exciting than the original
15 June 2008
Summary: I decided to buy this game after playing the original Way of The Samurai when i was a child. I found the original highly entertaining and when i saw this was coming out i rushed to buy it. Compared to the original, WS2 is a much faster paced game with a larger map layout and many more civilians. If you have ever played the original, you'll know what a let down it is to only be able to upgrade your sword and do limited things.
Pros: Faster paced than the original, more exciting
Excerpt: Way of the Samurai était un jeu original, plein de défauts et mal terminé mais qui offrait une expérience de jeu immersive et originale. Cette suite propose plus de liberté (tout est relatif) et d'options de fin, mais le gameplay n'innove en rien, et comble pour une suite, elle s'avère affreuse au niveau de la 3D qui réussit à être plus moche que le premier volet !
