    Like a new year’s line of automobiles, Onimusha 2 has a sleeker look, more bells and whistles, and improved standard features over its predecessor model, "Warlords."

    Sure, you won't be spending "Final Fantasy X"-calibur time with it, but it's a good way to kill a dozen or so hours. [Sept 2002, p.30]
  3. Thanks to an interesting trading system and the promise of literally hours and hours of extra gameplay-unlocked goodies, an improved system for absorbing and applying souls and perfectly executed graphical and aural treats as so few developers in this industry can really deliver, the game is simply too good to miss.
  4. Solid gameplay with plenty of new improvements make Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny another fine blade.
  5. Onimusha 2 may not be as great as it could have been, but it's clearly improved and worth your attention if the idea of samurai hacking up demons from hell sounds good to you. It sure does to me.
  6. There’s not much here that will entice replayability once the game’s numerous secrets have been uncovered.
  7. Anyone coming to Onimusha 2 cold will find brilliant beauty, but baffling execution.

This is one of the most beautiful games to hit the PS2, It does what every good sequel should...improve on every aspect from the original. This is one of the most beautiful games to hit the PS2, and focuses more on the RPG element than the original. The combat system is cleaner, and it's much easier to get critical kills. With 4 sub-characters, this game has the best replay value I've seen in a while. Definitely worth the while! Expand

    Seguito di quell'Onimusha che un anno prima tanto successo ottenne su PS2, Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny ci riporta nel Giappone feudale,Seguito di quell'Onimusha che un anno prima tanto successo ottenne su PS2, Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny ci riporta nel Giappone feudale, questa volta nei panni del giovane guerriero Jubei, intenzionato a sterminare Nobunaga e i demoni Genma per vendicare la morte dei suoi cari. Un titolo bello e divertente quanto il suo predecessore, impreziosito dalla possibilità di farsi degli alleati tramite un semplice sistema di regali e dotato di una longevità leggermente maggiore.

    If you liked Onimusha 1, Onimusha 2 is really more of the same. Nothing spectacular, and a little on the short side, but solid overall.
