Otogi 2: A classic game no one heard of

Summary: Otogi is based on Japanese mythology and takes place in ancient Japan. The main character is an undead warrior named "Raikoh." Raikoh is summoned by Seimei (a female spell caster) to help save the land from a demon invasion. Raikoh has the aid of "4 generals" which are all characters loosely based on Japanese mythology and ancient Japanese history. In combination with Raikoh, Seimei, and the "4 generals" there are 6 playable characters all with unique abilities.
Summary: Words cannot adequately describe the sublime blend of exhilaration and delight one feels at playing this game. That is... if one really enjoys destroying things. And I do. The six playable characters in this game can destroy anything and everything in the environments. Outside of Katamari Damacy, I haven't found a game in which the surrounding environments are involved so much in the gameplay. Trees, rocks, buildings, statues -- nothing is spared.
Summary: Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors - Circa 2005 GOOD: - Good/tight controls (slightly different from the original) - Uniquely stylized world and environments - Lot's of weapons/magic to buy and find - Every stage can be utterly demolished - Really great use of surround sound - Play as six different characters (including Raikoh) - Level up and customize each character (even equip different weapons and magic spells) - Game loses the weapon-sharpening option, which was in original...
Summary: Last year, Sega was gracious enough to publish Otogi: Myth of Demons in the U.S., allowing gamers to experience the mesmerizing destruction and mystical Japanese setting of From Software's nightmarish slasher. Well, send Sega a thank-you card once again, because they're repeating this year, with Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors.
Summary: 1. Best Graphics. 2. Best Sound and Music. 3. Non-stop gaming action. What more could anyone want? Seriously though, its NOT an RPG, so if thats the sort of depth that you are looking for, this game isn't it. But it is great fun in combat and there are plenty of unlockable that kept me playing the game for weeks. I also have the original which I now feel like replaying... Great game. Unfortunately it will be a "sleeper hit" as it just doens't get much publicity.
Summary: The original Otogi: Myth of Demons floored video game reviwers when it was released on Xbox last year. Its spectacular graphics, great gameplay, RPG elements and great storyline impressed all who played the game which amounted to about 15 people as the game sold poorly. A release stateside for Otogi 2 was uncertain as the game has been available in Japan for nearly a year.

Excerpt: "I played the first Otogi game at my mate's house and I was literally blown away by how good it was. At the time I was only used to Xbox games either being first person shooters or well Halo! The sequel is just as good and its a shame to know that there are not a lot of games like this on the console .As usual I'll break my review down into simple parts: Gameplay? If you have played the original then your pretty much going to expect the same ...
Pros: Beautiful visuals, interesting story, unique and diverse set of charcters, ambient eastern soundtrack
