Genma Onimusha Reader Review - 7.1

CaptainChris, IGN Entertainment

  • Conclusion: Genma Onimusha is a game in which you control a samurai. And samurai are seriously cool. They carry a great big katana sword. And they run about in socks and had shoes made out of flat bits of wood. How hard is that?

Harder and meaner

  • Summary: I own the PS2 version also. The xbox version is definitely harder in all aspects. The graphical enhancement is slight.

Onimusha is a good adventure that could have been great, but it is still definitely worth a look

  • Excerpt: Capcom's Onimusha series has so far seen three entries and one spin-off on the PlayStation 2, but not too long after the console's release, the Xbox was treated to an upgraded form of the original Onimusha Warlords, by the name of Genma Onimusha.

Too fun brutal game

  • Excerpt: Genma Onimusha is an excellent game. They did a superb job. I don't think it was an exact port from PS2 to X-box. What I think is they added a few levels to the X-box game and the playability on the X-box is much much much harder.
  • Pros: so incredibly playable
  • Cons: bad AI

  • Summary: This is a good game, but the controls are a little frustrating and take a while to get used to. Slashing the warriors is fun and gruelling! It's a battle of wills and a tug of war to top up your power.

Genma Onimusha

  • Summary: This game, when you first begin to play it, comes across as uninspiring and unimpressive. The graphics appear very ordinary and the rate at which you die seems too high. But read a bit of the manual, pick up some defensive tips and play on, and you'll soon become hooked.
