    This is a good game Rockstar's first for the ps2 appens to happy, exciting, thrilling, challenging, anime-inspired, fun, and overall has an absolutely wonderfully dark storyline.

    Great combat mechanics seamlessly mixing close quarter combat and melee/ranged weapons. Unfortunately the plot is pretty dull, and the level design is boring - you run from one grey room to another. With more attention paid to these issues this could have been something truly special.

  1. You know you’re in trouble when it takes you five times to get through the first training level of a game, and it freezes on the second.

    While the control system is well thought out, it can at times infuriate as you desperately scramble around trying to reel off rounds into your enemies, while running from them.

    Oni has definitely redefined the action game genus; it may have created a new genre.
