  1. Onimusha 2 avoids the mistake made by the previous title in placing difficult puzzles, often under a time limit, at awkward points in the game.
  2. This time around there is more character interaction, more action, more techniques, and THANKFULLY the game is much longer.
  3. Anyone coming to Onimusha 2 cold will find brilliant beauty, but baffling execution.

    The game runs absolutely perfectly on the PS2, there is seldom any hiccupping in the framerate, its very enjoyable in that regard, the combat despite being basic it is very enjoyable and its nice to upgrade your weapons and equipment. I do not like the social interaction and friendship mechanic the game has, that can make easy or harder boss fights where NPCs you meet along the way can come and help you out.

    Im sure ill beat it someday but i have fun whenever i have one of those weekends where i just want to play it from the beginning and see where i can take it in one sitting.

    I don't have so much to say about this game because it plays just like the original just a bit less character all around , What do I mean wellI don't have so much to say about this game because it plays just like the original just a bit less character all around , What do I mean well the main character Jubilee is Wooden boring but Luckily for him the characters that is beside him has some character but he still legs a bit too much , I think the gift-giving and the way that they tried to to make multiple story branges is just kind of a mess and I hate using it , I would say I had a good time with the game but Experiments on gameplay Day Made in this game just not for me Full Review »

The main character is a samurai who uses a sword to cut the devil. It is also an action RPG game with strong RPG elements.
    It's very nice of me to be a samurai myself and cut the demons.
