Legend of the What do I do now?

Ken Owens, Amazon
7 February 2013
  • 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.

Better than Bushido Blade

  • 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 order to progress. I discovered this only after getting beaten by the game about 50 times.

one of the best games I've ever played

Maverick Smythe, Amazon

  • 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. You have your standard vertical attack, horizontal attack, block button, but the really cool button is X.

Realistic themes!

  • Summary: I have enjoyed this game more than other fighting games, mainly because it is designed more as a simulator instead of a game. I always enjoy simulator style games rather than more fictitious games, so if your looking for a traditional Japanese sword fighting game, I would get this one. If you only want a game based on purely the gaming elements, I am not an avid enough gamer to comment on this.

Disappointed

  • 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.

not a button smasher

  • Summary: I was looking at the sales crate thingy and though all the sports plain weird games i found this and decided to give it a try. This game is really challenging master swordsmen are really, well, masterful. I love how you can have the ability to kill a boos with one kill, if you have to skill. unlike in the past where nearly all melee based games have been "a a a" this one is different., you have to use different approaches for different opponents.

Proof that people don't realy like realism.

R. Hall "massivecor", Amazon
25 August 2009
  • 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. These games sparked a small revalution with fighters opting for a more realistic approach, however this was only attempted by small or unknown companies and was ruled as ''shallow'' or ''uninspired'' because it didn't mimic Street Fighter[no disrespect].
