  1. Blatantly ripped straight from the PlayStation 2, this version of Onimusha 3 still packs some good, solid hack-and-slash combat and a likable story.
  2. Lively, but as deep as the red puddles you leave in your wake. [June 2006, p.85]
  3. Unfortunately, the conversion to PC is a sloppy affair, leaving it with a number of issues, such as a frame-rate that's at times slower than a bed-ridden sloth, a bizarre lack of sound effects, an option to change resolution that doesn't work and the fact that the game defaults to running in a small window.

  5. Highly implausible, but not entirely fun-free. [May 2006, p.90]

I have played Onimusha (1 & 4) games in the past and this is definitely a keeper. The graphics due show there age little but the game is fun to play. The control issues are learnable though and you'll pick up the skills moderately. Full Review »
