Summary: If you liked the first one you'll love this one. A ton of different endings. It's kind of a quick game but more characters you can unlock and clothing options. You can do whatever you want like kill people, join a gang or group, steal from merchants even. the game doesn't get old. somethings may get repetative after a while but just change whatever you want to do like a killing rampage. it's kinda fun.
Summary: Personally I LOVED the first one and this is more of the same stuff as the first one with the fighting, controls, graphics and the way you can choose whichever ending you want. Your character starts out before where the first one starts since there is still samurai and the Meiji era and you can choose a few endings with the Aoto gang, magistrates, the townspeople or you can be a lone samurai.
Summary: This is a game that perfectly suits for the late days of the samurais and the control of the shogunate over the magistrates and civilians. The story begins as a lonely samurai arrives in Amahara. As you are famished and tired of all your journey you pass out and a little girl helpes you by giving you her rice ball. From there you gain control of your character and you can choose your talk lines which will influence the gamestory and also gameplay.
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.
