Muramasa the Demon Blade
19 September 2014
Excerpt: Muramasa: The Demon Blade, being published by Ignition Entertainment, is a hack-and-slash side-scrolling game that harkens back to the mythical and classical period in Japanese history. With a very anime-esque artistic styling, the characters jump off the screen as very dynamic and unique.
Summary: Muramasa is a supermodel holding a cardboard sword – a gorgeous game that treats combat like a flimsy prop. Rarely are visuals a game’s main attraction, but Muramasa’s colorful backdrops and hypnotic flowing animations are its only attention stealers.
Summary: Muramasa: The Demon Blade is a visually stunning game, with a great art style that influences everything in the game. The controls work perfectly, but while the battles are stylish and smooth, they aren’t as engaging as you might hope they would be.
Summary: Parents need to know that this action/platformer is filled with violence and themes best suited for a slightly older audience. Players spend most of their time in battle against villainous ninjas and spirits.
Summary: " Muramasa The Demon Blade " is one of those games which looks great but is let down by some uninspiring gameplay. At first I was pretty impressed with the overall game and in particular the fact that it had a nice retro feel and did not try to utilise the gimmicky controls.
Conclusion: Even though Muramasa: The Demon Blade only offers the story mode, the two difficulty levels, the two different storylines and upgradeable characters, the extra challenges, the boundless amount of swords, and the dazzling Japanese visuals make up for a great experience most players will enjoy.
