Summary: After being a recent convert(ee) to xbox games from a good few years PC ing I picked this up on the strength of the graphics on the back of the box(wow, 28 now, been playing games since about 7 years old on many consoles one day I will learn no? maybe). Anyway, slapped it in played for half an hour.
Summary: I have played the pre-release demo of this game, and i have to say, it uses the xbox graphics wonderfully. The Gameplay is fast paced, and action filled. The game uses RPG style point based stages. The idea is that you have to purify places of Demons.
Summary: ...for picking this up for a UK release. Otogi has been out in japan for some time and is a wonderfully atomospheric game. Based on a re-imagining of an ancient japanese fairy tale, you play raiko, a demon slayer. The game basically requires you to kill lots of demons and kill huge bosses.
Summary: OtoGi is a handsome game. Well put together, with a grace and style that very few recent titles are able to match. But where it matters, in the gameplay, it is a shallow title with little more than repetitive combat which relies on button mashing and hoping that the errant camera doesn't hinder you...
Summary: I genuinely love this game. The approach of making the levels huge puzzles as well as 3d beat 'em ups/platformers is incredible. But you know what? Its 2012. Let's not charge this much for old games!
Summary: Ok, So yes games like Shinobi were worth fumbling around in your pockets fishing for ten pences to at least get to level six or seven but don't be fooled by the shinobi-ish outlook to this game. This game is pretty and has great atmospherics though it lacks loads in gameplay.

Summary: Otogi: Myth of Demons is a third person action game, with plenty of twists and turns along the way. The game moves in a stage based scenario with missions that you must complete, enemies you must destroy, and regions you must purify.
