  1. InuYasha may not be able to compete with the big boys of the fighting genre, but fans of quirky anime games or those looking for a budget fighter won't be disappointed.
  2. Packs enough personality and otaku-friendly sights/sounds to compensate somewhat for its mindless, button-mashing gameplay.
  3. 75
    A standard 2D fighting game - not as deep or involved as your typical Capcom fighter - but it's still fun to play. [May 2003, p.45]
  4. Should prove surprisingly playable for fans of the show... Unfortunately, InuYasha's actual fighting engine is rather mediocre, not to mention unbalanced, so hardcore fighting buffs will probably want to steer clear. [May 2003, p.97]
  5. A bland-looking, simplistic fighting game. Inuyasha's button-mash gameplay feels stiff and dry, so even Versus matches aren't likely to hold your interest for long. [May 2003, p.136]

    GREAT GAME!! I just started it and I can already tell it's a great. Plus...InuYasha is like...god...duh. But seriously there arnt that many games that are like this any more. This is the great old-school style InuYasha game for the PS1. You Herd Me!! Expand

    This game is so cool, yet I still think the series and the comics are loads of fun to watch and read, but the game is rated A and 10 because I just love the graphics and the fun in this game! Expand

    Well I'm a big fan of the show and manga (manga means Japanese comics.) So I absolutly had to try out the game! I have to be a critic here so bear with me other Inu fans. The graphics were unclear and the game wasn't near long enough and the mini games were hard and sort of pathetic (Inu smashing his beautiful Tetsaiga on a rock! Come on people!) It also would have helped if they would have dubbed it. (Even though I'm glad to hear the origional Japanese voices.) Then the fighing was just smash any buttons and you'd attack. Not for people used to pressing 10 buttons in 2 seconds and liking it. (But who doesn't like being a lazy butt?) You can also get trapped in the cornor by the computer kicking your butt or a mercilious friend beating the living crap out of you. Also non-fans of the show who just picked up the game for the heck of it probably won't understand what the whole "Inuyasha will you die with me" part. Yes that would freak me out too. Now for the good points! The game kept right to the anime and manga, they used the voices that were from the show in Japan, there are lots of pictures, little music clips, and in Dream Fairytale Mode you can make practically anyone be on the same team! (For fans that means Sesshomaru and Inuyasha vs. Naraku and Shippo!) Then you can practicly attack with any button as I've said before which is Fun! Now I've probably bored you all which is amusing for me and well...boring for you. I give this game a 9 out of 10. Expand
