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.

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.

Proof that people don't realy like realism.

R. Hall "massivecor", Amazon

  • 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].

  • Summary: Kengo Legend of the 9.... For those of you who arent too keen on reading though a whole review to see the overall feel of the game here you go: Its a simple game, rent it, and IF you love it buy it...IF you love it...If you cant find it to rent...dont bother, really dont bother. Even if your very tempted. Ive played the 1st Kengo years ago when the PS2 was just entering the gaming world. Ah the primitive days of "next gen" Bouncer, Kengo, Twisted Metal Black ect ect.

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
28 October 2007
  • 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.

Very subtle, strategic fighting game.

R. PAYNE "taikutsuna", Amazon

  • Summary: I'll admit, when I first put this game in, I was sorely disappointed and frustrated beyond belief. I'll also admit that I didn't even glance at the book before I played, so I didn't know that your health gauge regenerates if you stand still with a full stamina bar. I didn't know you could lock onto a nearby samurai, instead of running around in circles hacking wildly, trying to stay alive. So...

  • Summary: This game should have received more fair reviews. Yes the gameplay is quite repetitive but this is the best samurai game I have ever played.
