I'd let someone borrow the game instead of buy it. Just to save them money.

Summary: I bought this game, completely elated that I would be able to play some cool samurai. In truth, that's what the game is: 9 samurai from history in Japan. You begin with 3, but you eventually unlock all of them. This is mostly a hack-and-slash game.
Summary: Arrived quickly and was what I ordered, in good condition.. I was hoping for a bit more Bushido Blade style gameplay, but this is still pretty good, for as much as I hate seeing health bars in sword fights. Either way, I wasn't able to find this anywhere else, so I'm glad I found it.
Summary: I am a big fan of samurai games, as there are very few people who would be able to stand the frustration of this game long enough to figure it out. Like some of the other reviewers have said this game is not a hack and slash game, you really need to study it and become proficient with the moves in...
Summary: Is it "technically impressive"? No. It's not Skyrim, Mortal Kombat, Uncharted 3, Modern Warfare 3. It's Kengo: Legend of the 9. Got it at Gamestop for $4. Best game ever. Graphics and presentation: Not the best. It doesn't attempt to wow you. It's just "good enough." Gameplay: Great.
Summary: Just not really that fun. You start off just fighting and that's about it...fight a boss and then fight some more. The othe rKengo games was about training and one on one combat...so I thought this was going to be more of the same but was not.
Summary: Lets be blunt, this game is not the game you want if your looking for something that you can play for along time or reply. Kengo is a good game in the sorta kinda catagory, sure its got swords who doesn't love those? It's samuri even better right?
Summary: Ever since genki has made fighting games they have been doing something new, making them feel real. The Bushido Blade games reinvented the genre with their realistic sparing and simple controls.
Summary: I bought this game used for $13. It wasn't worth it. I'm generally pretty tolerant when it comes to games but the lack of horizontal camera view option made this game near unplayable. Who in their right mind decided "Hey, lets make you have to thumbstick left to turn the camera right!
Summary: Decent graphics and the story line was ok. This is your typical hack-n-slash game for the most part. There are time when you want to to just do that, if you want a strong RPG or an exceptional fighting game, this will not be it.
