Showing 1-10 of 16
2 January 2006
Excerpt: Developed by From Software, the original Otogi on Xbox cast the player as Raikoh, a legendary undead warrior protecting feudal Japan from attack by demons led by the evil Michizane, in a literal action-slash-adventure featuring hordes of enemies, high-paced gameplay and destructible scenery.
Excerpt: Otogi: Myth of Demons was, in my opinion, one of the better action titles on the Xbox. The fast paced fighting combined with RPG depth and beautiful graphics made this a great title. Now Otogi 2 is on the horizon, and it looks like fans can expect a similar gaming experience. Otogi 2 takes place directly after the events in the original game. Again, this game takes place in ancient Japan and immerses the gamer in a world full of real-life folklore and mysticism.
Excerpt: Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors is a lot like its predecessor Otogi: Myth of Demons in that it presents an imaginative, beautiful, and surreal world … and then lets you destroy every last little piece of it. Well, the world’s been overrun by demons after all and they’re such a nasty lot that if you have to knock over a few lampposts, archways, and temples along the way, then so be it.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors is a wonderful game that showcases Xbox's strengths really well. Unlike a lot other game sequels, this one easily lives up to the greatness of the original by providing players with beautiful sights, sounds, and enough insane action to maintain solid interest from beginning to end. If you enjoyed Myth of Demons then this is your game.
Excerpt: '' Otogi 2 is like no other game i have reviewed before.. I have never had the opportunity to play the first release but from what i read in another review by TheModGod (another xbox-hq admin) i noticed he really liked it too..
Conclusion: Although I doubt Otogi 2 will be a very high selling game, it ought to be! This is one of the best hack and slash games of the year. And although the game is not perfect, it does enough right in every department to be considered a great game. For those of you, who enjoyed the first one, go run out and buy this game today!
Conclusion: As a side note to the main missions there’s also a place you can visit to do little challenges like destroying 100 gates or going through gates without touching the water. You unlock these challenges as you progress through the main missions.
Pros: Visually impressive., Different character styles.
Conclusion: This is a great asset to the Xbox library as there is nothing that comes close to its story line or graphical originality. However this game isn’t for everybody as it doesn’t require a lot of thinking, but does require some patience. The camera issues and repetition of missions can spoil enjoyment, but most people should definitely give it a go as if you do you will be rewarded with a great example of an un-commercial style game in today’s flooded commercial games...
