  1. Kengo has the right idea, but fails miserably to deliver a solid experience, substituting game modes and substance with repetition.
  2. It isn't the best of games, but it does manage to put a handful of good ideas in one package -- even if it wasn't done as well as it could've been.
  3. It just gets kind of boring watching the fights instead of participating in them.
  4. A semi-historical repetitive fighter that does have its merits, but doesn't reach the full potential of what it could have been.
  5. All in all, gamers can tie a lot of time up into Kengo: Legend of the 9, but so little of it is of any appreciable quality.
  6. I can't say enough how disappointed I was with the final results of Kengo: Legend of the 9. There is so much potential for a realistic samurai title that it's hard to see something going much worse than this.

    I bought this game used for $13. It wasn't worth it. I'm generally pretty tolerant when it comes to games but the lack of horizontalI bought this game used for $13. It wasn't worth it. I'm generally pretty tolerant when it comes to games but the lack of horizontal camera view option made this game near unplayable. Who in their right mind decided "Hey, lets make you have to thumbstick left to turn the camera right! Then give them no option to change it!"

    I came >< close to playing frizbee with the disk but I decided returning it for a buck would be better. Then again, I'm not sure if my concience should allow me the possibility of unleashing this drivel game onto someone else.

    I thought it looked like dynasty warriors or warriors orochi. I WAS WRONG. This game is horrible. I bought it used (on a wim) for $17.99.

And whats with the people giving it good scores? man....halo haters....orange box haters....good game haters, and whats this? wow! crap lovers! seriously, if you were to see the reviews for Big Rigs or Escape From Bug Island, you'll get my meaning. And THAT"s why we have popular reviewing press that tells us what's crap, and what's not (even though some of them aren't very good at it). Full Review »
