  • Summary: The journey begins when Princess Mycella summons Musashi across space and time to save her people from danger. As a stranger in a new world, Musashi finds intrigue and adventure as he hones his battle skills to defeat a sinister nemesis. All-new battle systems contribute to non-stop action. Musashi can focus his energy to learn his opponents' techniques, allowing him to give enemies a taste of their own medicine. And this time Musashi can not only pick up allies and enemies but also wield them in combat to devastating effect. [Square-Enix] Expand

    An enticing blend of action and RPG adventure. The game mixes the best elements of both genres, resulting in a title that is just a hair away from greatness. Musashi may not be Zelda's equal, but it sure is close. [Apr 2005, p.84]

    The cel-shadded graphics and the off beat humour will put a majority of people off but if you can get past this you have an enjoyable title. Mimicking enemies attacks is quite fun when you get the hang of it.
  3. An entertaining, easy-going action-oriented RPG that doesn’t reinvent the gaming wheel—but rather cel-shades it beautifully.
  4. 66
    The biggest problem with Musashi Samurai Legend is the same problem that’s plagued a lot of Square-Enix’s recent titles: it just isn’t nearly as fun as it feels like it should be.
  5. Combat gets monotonous and Musashi himself moves far too slowly for a nimble samurai. [June 2005, p.80]
  6. Fancy graphics can't distract from the fact that this is a rather boring, repetive game after a few hours. A shoddy framerate and unbalanced sound don't help matters either.
  7. A meager grab 'n go meal. [June 2005, p.88]
