    How cam you give this game a 10??? This game was probably the worst out of the onmusha series. i really didnt understand that kid hangin for that rope who was in the ball. Thte capcom went to far with it i think they tryed to make it more of a family game... some of you guys might not get what i mean by that, what i mean by that is they had to many happy-go-lucky moments.

  1. Great, fast gameplay, good story, nice cinematics, a wide variety of characters, and much more. The game is good at every level. [JPN Import]

    The story itself is pretty good and is even more fantasy based than before (the first three Onimusha games actually had more historical basis to them), though it does suffer a little bit from lack of clarity every now and then. [JPN Import]

    A great samurai action-adventure. It is fast, stylish, entertaining and has a good story to boot. What more could you ask? The camera is far from perfect, though. [Feb 2006]
