Great game

Franzkill, Ciao
18 March 2006
  • Excerpt: "...remake of the game however Genma Onimusha promises much more than simply that. Utilising the power of the Xbox hardware the environments including trees, lighting, buildings and characters look much more detailed than they did back on the Playstation 2 version and gives the game a more cinematic feel to it. The Dolby Surrond sound feature is also complimented which enables the player to feel like they are truly in a world where power hungry warlords ...
  • Pros: Great Graphics, Lots to do and see, fantastic extras, Excellent orcasteral sound, Satisfyingly challenging
  • Cons: A bit too hard

Resident Evil meets Legacy of Kain

Ibrahim "Devil Horns", amazon.co.uk
3 March 2004
  • Summary: This game has a distinct resident evil feel but lets you control the game in a much more hack'n'slash way (Legacy of Kain) as opposed to stratigic saves and health boosts (resident evil). The game is a very enjoyable blend and vert atmospheric, if you want a game with lots of charm and tension this is for you, if you want full on brain teasers like resi look elsewhere, if you can't fight you can't progress. Finally I must say that £35 is a rip-off, buy this game..

Too fun brutal game

Rob499, Ciao
9 March 2003
  • 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..Geez, level one was so hard that I had to suck up a lot of souls in this game to survive. The plot in GENMA ONIMUSHA is that people are disappearing and the noble Princess Yuki fears for her future. One lone swordsman, Samanosuke(Your ...

Onimusha haha you cheeky little samurai!

Joshua Roberts, amazon.co.uk
2 July 2002
  • Summary: Well where do i start, One thing that surprised me when i bought the game and when I played on it for the first time was that it was the original game of onimusha with added parts and secrets.For instance,you can collect green souls which power up your character and make you invincible for short periods of time,but the enemy can also try to absorb the soul and make himself powerful so you then are left with a tug of war situation where you have to rapidly press the A...

Addictive Game!

"sega-zero", amazon.co.uk
26 March 2002
  • Summary: This game is very good. At first, i found it hard to play, getting killed all the time. But after a while of playing, i got better and find it fun slaying the monsters! Blood and body parts fly everywhere! You can collect souls after u killed the monster and enhance your weapon. Once you enhance your weapon to a certain level, it changes shape and hence the power increases! It is so cool! The graphics are not xbox standard but passable.

Espartano, Ciao
6 October 2004
  • Summary: -Capcom siempre se a caracterizado por ser una compañia que suele apostar por la calidad en sus productos y mas aun cuando hablamos de un juego de accion-terror , vamos un survival en toda regla como tanto le gusta hacer a Capcom. Son especialistas en este tipo de juegos , ya lo demostraron con Resident Evil y Dino Crisis o mas recientemente con Devil May Cry , y no iban a ser menos con este Genma Onimusha , que tira mas hacia a la accion que al terror y a la...
