Summary: Otogi: Myth of Demons for the Xbox is a beautifully designed action packed
adventure through the underworld of Japanese Mythology. Otogi casts you as an
undead warrior named Raikoh who battles against an endless army of demonic foes.
You can use a variety of upgradeable weapons and magic spells to destroy them
and purify the world. Otogi's level designs are brilliant and the gameplay is
intense with lots of action bracketed by an engaging storyline.
Excerpt: Otogi is a Japanese myth game. Firstly we'll give it the official word. “For a thousand years, the imperial court had ruled the land of mortals, but apparently there is a seal that’s broken now and demons are spitting mad and want to take over the world of men. Wind and rain broke the city and the court was left in ruins.” Ok so you've followed this far, and you can tell I am very skeptical about this whole Jap legend myth magic stuff, but let’s continue.
Conclusion: Bombastische Grafik, brillianter Sound und eine dichte Atmosphäre heben Otogi vom üblichen Einheitsbrei ab, eine höhere Wertung macht jedoch die 08/15 Story und das eintönige Gameplay nicht möglich. Nichtsdestotrotz bietet Otogi für Hardcore Japan Fans und Grafikfetischisten interessantes Futter für einige Stunden Spaß.
