Otogi: Myth of Demons Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: There have been few action adventure games that pull of the perfect blend of gameplay, storyline and presentation that Otogi manages to do. From Software did their homework in regards to the control scheme and overall gameplay mechanics, and for that they should be commended. Sega of America should also be given kudos for recognizing this diamond in the rough and for bringing it to the U.S.

Otogi: Myth of Demons

Xbox Evolved
28 May 2005
  • Summary: Otogi doesn't mess around at all. This is for hardcore gamers and it will delight a lot of those who want more of the Japanese action that can also be found in games like Ninja Gaiden, Tenchu, and Genma Onimusha. Otogi may not be the best with CGI, dialogue, or even plot wise, but it does deliver another game that can be considered a sleeper hit.
  • Pros: Destructible environments, Mini-Bosses Rock!
  • Cons: Camera Controls, Raikoh doesn't speak a word

Otogi: Myth of Demons

Just RPG
22 March 2005
  • Excerpt: I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical of Otogi: Myth of Demons when I first heard about it. After a slew of mediocre action games, such as Devil May Cry II and Chaos Legion , I was almost expecting Otogi to be the same. Although, once I started Sega’s new action/RPG, I realized how wrong I was. If I did my research right, Otogi means something along the lines of ‘fairy tale’, which describes the game pretty well.

Otogi: Myth of Demons

Into Liquid Sky
22 March 2005
  • Excerpt: I'm not too sure how many different reasons there are for buying an Xbox, but it's safe to say that my reason is simply one word: Sega. Some of Sega's greatest games of the generation have made their home on the box.
  • Pros: The best combination of an RPG and an Action game., A combo system that is more then just button mashing., An epic story and soundtrack to keep you on your toes.
  • Cons: Lack of extras and secrets.

  • Excerpt: For years and years, since gaming became gaming, ninjas have danced their sword-wielding dance across our screens to save the girl or the world from the evil baddy. This tradition is continued and improved in From Software's Otogi: Myth of Demons.

Otogi: Myth of the Demons

The Next Level
14 October 2003
  • Excerpt: Pop quiz: Do we really need another action title depicting slick looking characters with shiny weapons raining hell on an army of undead? Answer: Hell yes. Otogi is the brainchild of From Software, makers of the stellar Armored Core series and the not so good Forever Kingdom . Otogi falls in between these two extremes, but it’s more good than bad, fortunately.

  • Excerpt: It takes courage these days to create an original video game — one not based on an existing game series, movie license, or other multimedia entertainment.
