    Capcom have succeeded in taking the series to a natural end without making any significant changes...A crowd pleasing adventure, but not an essential one. [JPN Import]
  2. It could have been a great game rather than a merely average one if it backed up it's shiny new exterior with some added substance. Expect to be pleased, but don't expect any surprises.
  3. Just a few little flaws with the sometimes simplistic combat, and the fact that there’s not really anything here that we haven’t seen in the previous titles (although its done much better in this third instalment), means that Onimusha will never be remembered in the same kind of regard as say the "Resident Evil" series.
  4. It's easy to forget just how precious few of the genre's many exponents ever attain this level of competence, of course, but that said it's not unreasonable to have hoped for a little more innovation from Capcom. [July 2004, p.103]

    That Onimusha 3 is the final chapter is a shame, given its stellar mix of action and puzzles. Combine this with a new control system and it's clear that the series is only just hitting its stride. [July 2004, p.102]
