Onimusha Warlords User Reviews
Two Capcom hack and slash franchises started in the year 2001 - Devil May Cry, which was meant to be the real Resident Evil 4 until a glitch turned it into Devil May Cry 1; Onimusha, on the other hand, was Jun Takeuchi going "you know, Resident Evil is great, but it needs more swords and demons set in feudal Japan with supernatural powers". Now, the idea of a horror game where you play as a samurai had already been done, and it was Soul Of The Samurai for the Playstation 1. Much like Soul Of The Samurai and Resident Evil 5, Onimusha has the distinct dishonor of having absolutely not idea on...
The pre rendered backgrounds are amazing!Especially the FMV.
The fighting although seems to be a button masher then becomes a game of timing and perciceness.
The story isnt the best.The fighting despite what I said before still has room for some improvement.One particulat puzzle in the game kept me from progressing for about a week.A little short.Also the secondary character sttinks.Summary:
Onimusha:Warlords.This game is what samurai hungry players have been looking for.This game despite its faults is a very good game.In this game you take the role of Samanoske,the samurai chosen by the clan of the ogres to stop the demons.The games plot is a little weak.This guy Nobunaga who died in this war wa brought back to life by the demons.....but the question here is why?Why go to all the trouble of reviving some old fart.Dont get me wrong though,despite errors and faults of this title I soon came to love it for it preety face,style and 3 awesome weapons.Raizen-thunder sword Enryuu-Fir...
- Nice graphics
- Amazing CGi scenes
- Mixture of puzzles and swordplay
- Excellent enemy designs
- Quite linear
- Too short (3 hours or so)
- Bad English voice actors
- Pre-rendered backgrounds can look 'detached'
- Controls can be very frustrating
Where to start...at the beginning! The start of the game is quite an amazing acheivement in terms of CGi animation, the introductory battle scene is astonishing, and to this day 2 years after release the only games to have rivalled the CGi mastery are Final Fantasy X and Onimusha 2. It leaves a good impression, which remains with you as you start the game with some beautiful pre-rendered backdrops, which pretty as they are, are still pre-rendered, I think it would have been sensible for Capcom to have utilised the PS2s hardware more and gone for a full 3D background, but it still looks lush...
the graphics, gameplay, characters, storyline, bosses, monsters, FMVs, and cutscenes!The bad:
This is the best game I've played! In my opinion its as good as GTA: vice City! The puzzles are challenging and fun. The weapons totaly rule. After you beat the Dark Realm you get and ocarina that will help you unlock the grandaddy of ALL weapons. Enter the Bishamon Sword, one hit death to all none-boss enemies, unlimited magic attacks,and stronger than all the other weapons put together. The final boss battle is wickedly tough. The final boss(I ain't telling you who)has an instant death attack. with RE style controls, this is an easy game to get into. It's very addictive from the start. DM...
Excellent graphics, good enemy A.I., challenging bosses, good weapons system, decent storyline, handful of extrasThe bad:
Controls take some getting used to, annoying voice overs, insanely shortSummary:
Right from the get go you'll probably end up dying a few times since the controls take more than a little getting used to. But onced you've got accustomed to them they are very user friendly and you'll employ the many moves at you disposal with ease. The in game graphics are very well done and throughout the game you'll encounter very different types of enemies each with their own strengths and weaknesses. A combination of different types of enemies requires a little bit of strategy on your part and battles throughout the game are sometimes challenging but at the same time very fun. The bos...
Great fighter, great graphics, fun gameplay, cool enemies, awesome storyline, great bosses...The bad:
I can honestly say this is one of the best fighters out there. Its kinda short but its worth it anyway. It has loads of creative levels and lots of challenging puzzles for you to figure out. I was a bit surprised with it but its much better than it may look.
Overall Outcome: Buy It!
