  1. All of this beauty doesn’t come without a price, however. Because the levels and their separate areas are so detailed, the game must take the time to load up each segment.

    If the game weren’t such a sadist – you’re gonna have to be tough and persistent to make it through this one – and if it weren’t so short (about half the length of an average RE), I’d say it’s a must-buy for any gamer. [Mar 2002, p.141]

    Capcom also wrecked the balance of the gameplay, making it a much more frustrating affair. [Spring 2002, p.86]
  4. Thankfully, if you foul it up once too often a special Easy mode is unlocked, the equivalent of Normal on PS2. But what's the point of a remake that's only enjoyable when doing exactly what it did in the original?
  5. A memorable but brief stay in feudal Japan with a quest that could be finished within six or seven hours.

First, the game remains it's great atmosphere and graphics. Second, the gameplay has only been enhanced, with charging your weapon and the green souls, this will keep me going for months, if not years. Yes, they did raise the difficulty, making it even better, for me atleats. You can finally skips cut scenes which makes this game seem even better. There are a bit more extras you can unlock which will keep me going for weeks, if not months. The problem with this game, however, lies in the X-Box controller. The D-Pad on the X-Box is somewhat less than the PS2 one, making moving seem a bit harder. The controller, in fact, is so unconfortable for me to play Onimusha, that I almost gave this a 9, luckily the game was so awesome that I could forgive the bulky controller. Full Review »

It was good on ps2, and this is a well crafted port. They changed the game up more than expected. But rather than new levels, they added new features and increased the difficulty. There's a new exceptionally scary enemy - it's reminiscent of the RE series. It turned out very well, but it's a little too tough near the start. Full Review »

I mean, the dialogs are laughable and it can get very freaking hard and congusing! But, after a while I started to thoroughly enjoy it! A good game. Full Review »
