  1. 100
    Pay attention folks, THIS is how you make a "Special Edition."
  2. 90
    Seemingly hand-drawn backgrounds and marvelously manipulated characters leave surroundings oozing atmosphere from every pore...Macabre, yes, but magnificent as well.
  3. You'll want to play the game with the Japanese voices and English subtitles on. It looks cool (like your playing a Kurosawa film),and the Japanese voice acting is far superior to the English voice acting.
  4. 90
    Even if you played the original Onimusha on the PS2 within an inch of its life, Genma provides enough new elements to merit repeating the adventure. But beware newbies: This game is tough.
  5. 89
    An excellent game in nearly every way and actually manages to be an improvement over the original.
  6. 88
    A little short and the camera is wonky at times, but neither of those complaints can derail this excellent game. If you enjoy survival-horror games, this is one title you can't afford to miss.
  7. An ideal port--one that significantly improves upon the original game rather than adequately adapting it.
  8. With an engaging story, action packed pace, superb graphics and a surprise ending, Genma Onimusha is one of the finest games in the survival/horror genre.
