Summary: I'm not going to re-iterate what everyone has said.. however, I will add my two cents to this game.. FUN! Overall, this game is just plain fun.. there are alot of mini-games and ways to play this game. If you enjoy grinding out experience points and enjoy the nuances of game fighting like soul caliber and the running around and fighting random people (every now and then) this game is for you!
Summary: An underrated gem. I've been trying to find a reasonably realistic samurai game and this one absolutely delivered. Fun, challenging combat with so many different stances to choose from, each one with a customizable move set. The strongest aspect of this game is it's open-endedness. There's a whopping 28 different endings and to top it off, infinite new game plus so you get to keep your XP, your items and your weapons every time you start a new playthrough.
Summary: Shame stuff like this comes out and better games like Yakuza 5 don't get released here. It's a sand box game like Gta but really terrible like the E.T game I never played it but I have not heard good things.
Summary: I think this is a good game. A bit dated nowadays but the gameplay still holds up. Pretty much this is an action/rpg game set in japan with various samurai factions. You perform missions and the like to gain favor with the factions while the story progresses. I haven't played through a whole lot of it but I think the combat itself is pretty good (not completely authentic though) and the game is well constructed.
Summary: If you liked the ps2 games you will like this 3rd installment as it has not changed much in the way of game play or storytelling. I also just found out WotS4 is a PS3 digital exclusive in the US but was released overseas a year ago.
Summary: As a preface, I have never played Way of the Samurai 1 or 2, so this was my first experience with the franchise. I downloaded the title from the X-Box Live Arcade games on demand. I was drawn to it because of my fascination with Japanese culture and my love of sandbox-type games, but it ultimately failed to deliver.
Summary: My son love this game. He can't put it down until it's done. The story was great. He love the way his decisions can change the outcome of the game. It also have Multiple endings. I recommend this product.
