    There's refreshingly little emphasis on lever pulling or jumping puzzles -- someone out there is listening.

    Unlike many of today's action-girl heroes Konoko isn't all about big boobs and tight butt-cheeks. In contrast to a certain someone she spends the game firmly ensconced in kevlar body armour and combat fatigues.
  3. You know you’re in trouble when it takes you five times to get through the first training level of a game, and it freezes on the second.

    While the control system is well thought out, it can at times infuriate as you desperately scramble around trying to reel off rounds into your enemies, while running from them.
  5. There's nothing like watching a hot chic beating the crap out of a couple guys.

    Overall, Oni is in no way without merit, it is just not original or exciting enough to keep your attention for long. As a PSone game, perhaps we would be a bit kinder but for a next generation title, there is nothing more frustrating than bland mediocrity.
  7. 40
    Oni looks bad, sounds bad, and plays even worse -- all of the anticipation for this game is left unfulfilled.

    Although the controls were a little hard to grasp at first, I've still never seen a game that seemed so authentic in its moves and Although the controls were a little hard to grasp at first, I've still never seen a game that seemed so authentic in its moves and people. The story line was the clincher for me though. Well done! Expand

    I paid $5 for this game and was alittle unsure about the game play but it turned out to be pretty fun. I was impressed!

Oni a bien du mal à maintenir les 30 im/s ce qui aggrave encore la maniabilité médiocre et ce n'est pas son côté très répétitif qui le sauvera non plus, ni les voix françaises ridicules. Rien à sauver, Oni, va te noyer ! Expand
