Conclusion: Les amateurs de liberté apprécieront ce Way of The Samuraï 3 qui ne pose vraisemblablement aucune limite. A vous de construire votre propre histoire et de déterminer votre aventure à votre façon. Vingt-et-une fins disponibles, soit vingt-et-une façons de découvrir ce jeu vous attendent, ce qui en soi est assez énorme. Il n'est pas dit que vous y parveniez, mais le nombre montre combien il a été important pour les développeurs d'assurer un vrai contenu.
Pros: Grande liberté de choix, Doublages japonais, Nombre de fins disponibles
Cons: Un monde vite parcouru, Décevant sur les combats, Un épisode HD, pas vraiment HD...
Summary: Much like its predecessors, while Way of the Samurai 3 fails to really flex the system’s hardware muscle, it doesn’t stray from providing the replayability and unique, interesting gameplay the series is known for. The newest installment adds enough new features to freshen up the series while remaining true to its roots, but the fact it does not take advantage of the hardware is one of the title’s crippling downsides.
Conclusion: There is a LOT I have left out, that is how open ended this game is. I don't believe I've come close to scratching the surface. I feel though that the game ignores no brainer standards and in doing so drags a fantastic and original game chock full of potential down into mediocrity, and inevitably, bargain bins. I rate it three stars out of five.
Conclusion: A victim of its own hyperbole, Way of the Samurai 3 is a missed opportunity that fails to make feudal Japan even the least bit interesting or worth exploring. A controversial score for a game that no doubt has its avid fan-base chomping at the bit, we recommend that everyone else save their money, even if they find the game at a knockdown price in a bargain bin.
Excerpt: Way of the Samurai is a fantastic idea. Instead of leveling up a character by trawling through dungeons, why not work your way through a flexible short story, doing it a few times over to see how it can play out differently? Each time you restart, you make new choices about how you'll interact with the same characters, what sorts of relationships you'll form, which objectives you'll try to meet, who you'll help, and who you'll fight.
Conclusion: Way of the Samurai 3 suffers some of the same problems as it's predecessors, and ultimately is a niche game that the general market won't enjoy. For those that do decide to take the plunge, however, you'll find a deeply rewarding story based experience.
