  • Summary: Suspended between the world of the living and the dead is Raikoh, a skilled warrior from a cursed clan. In Otogi: Myth of Demons, you'll follow Raikoh as he travels through desolate lands to fight hordes of immortal creatures with 12 varieties of magic, a variety of brutal weapons, and more than 10 special demon-slaying items.

  1. If Otogi's tale was the bread it's gameplay is the butter. It mixes the best best of both the action and rpg genre... Much like "Ico" and "Panzer Dragoon Orta" it will go down as one of the most memorable experiences of this generation.
  2. There have been few action adventure games that pull of the perfect blend of gameplay, storyline and presentation that Otogi manages to do. From Software did their homework in regards to the control scheme and overall gameplay mechanics.
  3. There's a ton of imagination and visual power on display in Otogi, and From Software has created yet another amazing game, one of the best Xbox games of 2003.
  4. More style than substance, but action game fans owe it to themselves to check out this stylish and atmospheric offering.
  5. Digging deep into these levels proves to be a pretty profound experience. Each level is adorned with washed out colors and textures, as lush and lively as the cherry blossom trees the game so prominently displays.
  6. Otogi's somewhat repetitive action is not entirely compelling, but this one is really all about style and looking cool. It might not suck you in, but it should satiate your hunger for both fast-paced action and eye candy.
  7. The gameplay just isn’t up to scratch. Hack, slash and float is the basic premise, and that is about the extent of it. All the shopping for new weapons and random character level-ups don’t appear to have any effect on the meat and bones of the gameplay, and the repetition soon leads to boredom.

    An overall better play than the second, but impovement is needed in the controls, plot (another "Kill the bad guys already!" plot.) and camera. If it weren't for those flaws, a 9 would have been given but because they exist it still gets an 8. A place in my heart gives it a 10 though, along with anticipation for a third title. Expand

    This game is a lot of fun. While the gameplay isn't real in-depth, it is a quite amusing. And it looks phenomenal.

    The fighting is very redundant.
