    Onikira: Demon Killer is by no means a bad effort, it has some nice fun moments, but the somehow monotonous gameplay and the unpolished game mechanics make it hard to convince you to buy it at full price.

    Onikira has a solid foundation for its combat system, but the rest of the gameplay design feels a little bit dull, and we think developers could have found a way to help the concept reach its full potential.

    Action platformer set in Japan needed a few more months of work to reach the top, another writer and a bit more of creativity. Its main advantage is a successful fighting system.

    Onikira feels like it was designed by an overly controlling parent.

    The combat is the only thing Onikira's done right. Everything else feels flat and boring, even though the game initially shows some promise.

    This side-scrolling action adventure shows a lot of promise. But numerous bugs and lack of variety kill the fun.

    Couldn't bother to complete. O.K.ish sidescroller with so, so combat mechanics. Has decent Art Style, but boring level design. It's a combatCouldn't bother to complete. O.K.ish sidescroller with so, so combat mechanics. Has decent Art Style, but boring level design. It's a combat sidescroller, not a classic platformer kind of game. Mark of the Ninja was way more atmospheric and interesting game. What killed it for me is lack of decent controller support, x360ce didn't work for me and some other players, as far as I know. Even thou the game suggests at its loading screen, that it's best played on a gamepad. Expand
