Quoted from Kengo: Master of Bushido Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Kengo: Master of Bushido reviews & previews
"Developer LightWeight wants to capture that spirit in their first PS2 game, Kengo: Master of Bushido. And there's good reason to think that they can do it. LightWeight developed the revolutionary Bushido Blade and its successor, Bushido Blade 2, for Squaresoft."
"...the makers of BB and BB2, have gone and backtracked on all of their innovations with the release of Kengo: Master of Bushido for the PS2. A spiritual descendant of the Bushido Blade series, Kengo is a pretty bad game that doesn't live up to its fine heritage."
"Even if you never played the earlier Bushido Blade games, Kengo pales next to the other fighting games for the PS2..."
"While there's no single element of the game that begs to be bought, the whole thing comes together quite nicely, in part because of the fact that it stays true to a very simplified, streamlined aesthetic -- from the fighting engine to the graphics and options."
"Lightweight is making several changes to differentiate Kengo from the Bushido Blade games. Foremost among these changes is the new ki, or spirit, meter, which gauges a character's remaining stamina and attack power."
