    I think the American should stick to playing to their own game. This game wasn't developed for the Us it was for Asia. Americans will never understand the irony of this game. Thats why all the top 10 games on this website 9 out of 10 is a sport game develop in north america. Z anyone argue with that?

    Mindboggling presentation and probably the best level design in an action game ever. But beware, the first three stages are a laughibly easy warmup and a poor representation of what the game is. Make sure to keep playing to get to the really interesting and insanely difficult levels.

    It's a mature version of zelda with many rpg properties, the camera is a little difficult cause its controled w/ the left stick and in battles u might not have time to turn the camara.

    Awesome game, awesome music, awesome graphic, awesome combat. But the better thing in this game is...atmospehere. Yes, a beatiful ancient and magical atmosphere. You can feel really the feel of being in a some kind of ancient and fairytale (folkloristic) world, with demons, ghosts...Otogi is awesome, and Otogi 2 is even better.
    The Battle system is elegant, but quite simple...there are no

    The Battle system is elegant, but quite simple...there are no a lot of tecnicism, but it works. Difficulty sometimes can be a pain in the ass, but only few stages causes trouble.
    I recommend this at everyone who wants to approach and even apprecciate japanese mythology.

  1. Guaranteed to satisfy the gamer that craves fast and furious combat, haunting music and stunning visuals. Put your brain on hold and prime those reflexes for one of the most intense action games to hit the Xbox this summer.
  2. An awesome package. It's got great art, stunning visuals, immersive sound, responsive controls, RPG elements, great level and boss design, a challenging difficulty level, and slick, slick style to top it all off.
  3. The graphics, for one, are a veritable showcase of what the Xbox is capable of handling and the contrast between the foreboding sinister worlds and the brilliant colors, which explode on the screen during combat, is well worth checking out.
