    The spiritual successor of Bushido Blade keeps it's memory alive with it's unconventional take on the fighting genre. This weapons based 3D fighter really packs a punch, with heaps of fighters and some intense battles to be had. When a duel can be over in a few seconds from a well placed strike, you need to keep on your toes for this one. You cannot afford to take any shots, because anyone could be that slash that takes your life. Kengo has a washed out graphic style that may not making it the flashiest PS2 fighter but it works with the game to make the blood pop out. In this game when you bleed it means something bad, it means you are in trouble and the fact that the blood stands out even more by contrast just really tips the intensity of this fighter.

    Strategic and violent, Kengo will keep you on your toes whether in survival mode going through waves of swordsmen trying to get the highest tally, or between two friends on multiplayer. The fights might not always last long, but the impact lasts forever.

  1. A spiritual descendant of the Bushido Blade series, Kengo is a pretty bad game that doesn't live up to its fine heritage.
  2. Horrible control and subpar graphics ruin what could have been a special fighter on the PS2.

    It's a heartbreaker, because a game that looked like this, included these kinds of presentation and scenario elements, and played like "Bushido Blade" would receive my highest recommendation. I'd play it to death. What might have been is not what is, though.
