Summary: Muramasa The Demon Blade(MTDB) is a side scrolling(2D)action RPG.I think the game is very fun, playable and beautifully presented.You can easily hack n slash some long combo attacks and the combat has enough strategy to have some depth. --------- Story --------- The story for MTDB is set during the Genroku period in Japan(1688 to 1704)and a power hungry-shogun(military commander)began a conflict in an attempt to gain possession of some swords named 'Demon Blades' which...
Summary: As any Wii owner knows, good third-party games are very uncommon on the console, mainly because every company just throws in some uneeded motion controls and calls it a day. In this game, you don't use motion controls, because it doesn't need them! Which is a really good thing, and best of all, as motion controls are not in this game, you can play with a Gamecube controller! The 2D action is really fast and flashy, and there is were 2D sprites shine.
Summary: The Good and Bad Points are under the paragraph if you are looking for a quick review to read. Muramasa: The Demon Blade.

There are two separate stories about two seperate individuals that actually intertwine and become relevant to both stories.
Summary: If there's something wrong with this game, I can't find it. It's memorizing. The graphics are beautiful, like a super polished, super smooth version of Odin's Sphere. Sometimes I take pauses JUST to view the environments, and my siblings watch me play all the time cuz it reminds them of something out of a Japanese fairy tale. The soundtrack is perfect.
