Summary: This game has two sides, the combat and the non-linear story. The story allows the player to make choices and affect what happens, to a degree. The main issue is that the game is very short, and the climactic battles feel as long as the rest of the game up to that point. Even though the game has six different endings, many of them are similar.
Summary: Considering that this is the first in the series, its actually very good. The storylines are excellent as well as the gameplay and fight system. I think the best aspects are the presence of the open world play an ability to make you own desicions that will shape the outcome of your story. The numerous available weapons are awesome too.
Summary: This game was monumental for its time, and its still a lot of fun to play, allowing you to chose your path through one day of a samurai's life. Mostly comprised of action elements, story path morality based dialog options. Sword collecting/improving, and many multiple endings as well as character customization and unlockables add replay value.
Summary: Ok this my first review the way l do it is by postive and negative Postives1.The gameplay is fun 2.Tons of sword with different skills 3.You can chose opinions that could change the story 4.seven diffent endings Negatives 1.The game is really short you can beat it in like a hour you play as kenji a traveling samurai who come in between two clans you have to chose who's side you're on there is over 40 swords with differnt styles and attacks the game has seven endings...
Summary: This is a good game to play if you find yourself with nothing to do one afternoon. The game is over before you know it. It should only take you about an hour to get through the story. Despite the short amount of time you spend on your first run this game has great replay value. I went through a second and third time to find characters I had never seen, new battles, and new swords to collect. A couple of downers are attributed to the designers apparent push for realism.
Summary: This game was way better than i thought. Its actually one of my favorite games on PS2. It has a very good variety of fighting moves so its not like all of the other games where you can only do three different moves. You can even make your own moves. Its pretty awesome. The story line can be very good or just okay. It all depends on you because you decide your own path. If its not as good as you thought it was gonna be thats because thats hpw you made it.
Summary: I played the second one first and let me tell you, the sword fighting is much better in the second one. In fact I think it is the best sword fighting i have ever seen in a game, period. And that game has voice acting and some overall polish compared to this game. Overall I recomend playing the second one, the battle is great. Its short like this one.
Summary: Way of the samurai is a game that i looked over for small little mishaps but overall is a very good game. It give a new feature of fighting that is so life-like that it leaves games such as Dynasty Warriors in the dust. It gives you a solid story lines that are enjoyable to play over and over again. The detail of the Weapons is marvelous and they give you a reason to play it again.
Summary: Words cannot express how much I hate this game. There are very few games that I flat out HATE, but this is one of them. This could actually be the worst game I've ever played, so that's saying alot. The game tries to be a "choose your own adventure" samurai story set in the last days of the Tokugawa Shogunate era of Japan, but completely fails. Here's why: -Even though there are multiple paths you can take through the game, you can beat the game in about 45 min.
