  • Summary: Get ready for a new kind of Onimusha, where every move is a struggle for power. In Onimusha Tactics, you'll join Onimaru, a young Ogre clan warrior on a quest to defeat Nobunaga and his Genma armies. You must call upon your demon powers and sword skills to fight against evil legions. Manage your resources and equipment, assemble your allies, recruit the strongest warriors, and then move in for the attack. Don't forget to absorb the souls of your fallen enemies--their Ogre stones let you create new items. Collapse

  1. It is a great game because of the involving story. That is the one aspect that it does better than its competitors, and in that respect, it more than makes up for its other misgivings.
  2. A basic strategy-RPG that is great for beginners or veterans looking for a quick fix with a good story. [Spring 2004, p.45]
  3. It's more significant for the plot threads it weaves than the gaming innovations ti offers. [Feb 2004, p.92]

    A competent strategy RPG that sadly doesn't push the genre in any significant way.
  5. This isn't a bad game but in comparison to the heavyweights of the genre it just doesn't offer enough. An interesting diversion then, but one that probably won't last you for very long.

    Characters can not be customized, the battle interface and tactics grow increasingly repetitive and the music and sound are less than par for the course.
  7. Onimusha Tactics wouldn't be that bad if there weren't so many strategy games already available to the GBA. But there are. And compared to the rest of the flock, Onimusha sucks.

    This is the best game ever. Easy to play, good story, great graphic. The start may make people get bored but keep play more than 1 hour, you will see how good it is. Not like other gba game. Expand

    Story line is nothing special, nothing to find no side quests a superior game would be tactics ogre or final fantasy tactics.
