  1. May disappoint some die-hard fans of survival horror because of its relatively short length and the way it occasionally trades action for atmosphere.
  2. Even after a few years, Onimusha: Warlords is a decent game with some truly impressive qualities. Sadly, it’s also impressive how short this game manages to be.

Trattasi di unInizialmente previsto per la prima PlayStation, Onimusha: Warlords uscì infine sulla seconda console da salotto di casa Sony. Trattasi di un riuscitissimo hack and slash in cui, nei panni del prode samurai Samanosuke, dovremo avventurarci nel misterioso castello di Inabayama per salvarlo dall'invasione delle truppe demoniache capeggiate dal loro re Fortinbras. Divertente, graficamente ben fatto e dotato di fascinose atmosfere da Giappone feudale, Onimusha: Warlords é certamente uno dei più grandi classici dell'era PS2. Peccato solo per la longevità molto ridotta che si aggira attorno alle 6 ore. Full Review »

More hack and slash than survival horror, combat is decent, if limited; but was impressive for its time. Features one almost game-breaking puzzle (THE WATER TRAP) and some less threatening demonic entities - easily sliced. Lots of fun, great atmosphere. Full Review »
