Oni User Reviews
I'm such a sucker for anything related to anime, and video games are no exception. I purchased a minigame collection on the GBA because it featured Cardcaptor Sakura, and I picked up a third person shooter for the PS2 solely because it revolved around Ghost in the Shell. Now I've picked up Oni mainly because it's anime styled and I thought it might be good. However, it appears my impulse anime-themed purchases may have finally hit a patch of bad luck. While the first two acquisitions turned out to be fairly good choices at the least, Oni is a game that leaves a lot to be desired.
Anime graphics, good voice acting, decent story...The bad:
Frustration factor. See below.Summary:
Before Bungie made Halo (the most overrated game of all time, aside from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City), they proved that they most definitely were NOT the "greatest developers of all time" (as any ignorant XBOX fanboy will tell you) with this little-known blunder of a Third-person-shooter/fighter. Little known for a good reason, it seems.
This is one of the most aggravating games I've played in a long time. Not the "good" type of aggravating that you get from playing a game like Contra, where it's fun as hell, even if you die (and which results in that ultimate feeling of "awesome" when you f...
- Great Graphics
- Very good intro and cut scene
- Good Story Lines
- Good Weapons
- In game cheats
- The map screen is too dark
- Few enemies to fight with
Basically what makes this game boring is that there are like 20 enemies to fight with in each map making the game boring because Kinoko (the main character) has many fighting moves to fight with!
Rockstar has finally brought up a semi-interesting game with nice women on the game cover box! Well, don't get fooled with the cover because don't judge a game by its cover because it can contain many surprises. This game is worth to buy but at the same time it's not worth to buy. This game has stunning graphics that were well script and the anime intro with the first cut scene that takes place in the beginning of the game is very entertaining to watch. The weapons great because they have a futuristic touch and some weapons that have been upgraded such as the 45-magnum gun. The story lines ...
Graphics, difficulty, weapons, atmosphere, music.The bad:
Too short, end boss not difficult enough, dodgy control system.Summary:
Well despite the bad reviews this game has got, I quite liked it. I found the control system to be hard to get used to, but gradually it became easier. The musical score for this game was excellent - it's mostly trance music, I think it suits the setting of the game perfectly, as it's a futuristic one. There are a lot of weapons in the game, but there could have been more - all the sounds and effects are great. Even the voice acting wasn't too bad, which is saying something.
My main problem with this game was that it's too short. Hopefully they could put all these things right with a sequel...
the graphics were nice--but what PS2 title DOESN'T have better than average graphics?Summary:
I bought this game in a discount bin at Electronics Boutique, thinking that a PS2 game for twelve bucks was a great deal. But, if I only I had known that this was such a boring, tedious, and pointless game! I should have been PAYED to play it. It can be agrued that I may be a little unfair, considering that I didn't make it over halfway through Oni. But what reason do I have to continue to torture myself through the remainder? I hated the control system (which made dull gameplay unneccessarily difficult), the lame puzzles, and the perdictable storyline. I wouldn't recomend this game to any ...
Not much, maybe the graphics?
Everything - combat(yawn), levels(grey, grey and more grey), puzzles(if you think the rubik's cube was fun)Summary:
This game bites from the very beginning. The load screens are ugly and the game itself is even uglier. It is dull and lifeless. It looks like Aeon Flux on Barbituates, perhaps Qualudes. Can a game be any more grey or brown?
The movement and combat are unresponsive, and there is better enemy AI in Atari 2600 Combat. The puzzles are as illogical and ridiculous as the maze-like levels are redundant. If you want to fall asleep playing a video game, pick up Oni.
Eidos has developed some quality games over the years, but this isn't one of them. It falls into place with Urban Chaos, in fact I thin...
