    At first I thought It was very enjoyable with that beautiful art style. Then the game had lots of unnecessary backtrack and it got VERY repetitive. The game also long. I'd rather quality decent length of a game over quantity that makes it long and boring.

    Muramasa: The Demon Blade is a aesthetically pleasing game. There are tons of different swords and you can even play as two different characters. This really adds to the length of the game. Other than this, I felt no real draw to the game. I found the gameplay to be a little bit boring and repetitive. It seemed like all I was doing was pressing the same button over and over again!

The swords are the only thing that really made me stay with the game as long as I did. I beat both stories, but I have not yet gotten all the swords. Finally, sometimes when you try to attack a certain way, the motion controls seem very unresponsive. Expand

    The graphics are awesome, the voice acting ( in Japanese ) is cool, the game is pretty simple, it doesn't use any motion controls but it have a nice story

    Tiene una estética preciosa, una buena jugabilidad y una bonita historia. Todos los ingredientes para ser un juegazo. Pero a mi en los dos horas que le he prestado mi atención no me ha sabido a mucho. Cuestión de gustos

  1. Overall, it's a very solid title. Flawed, certainly, but a lot of fun to play if you don't mind a little repetitive combat and a story that feels a bit slow.
  2. It is a beautiful game that is a victim of its own success as the story so badly eclipses the gameplay. Muramasa is an imperfect jewel. It’s a precious stone for sure, but the cut’s not quite right.
  3. For all it's got going for it, though, Muramasa's problem is that it simply overstays its welcome. This is a good 14-hour game, and the gameplay cannot support that kind of play time. I found myself wishing that the game was about half the length it is, which would've left me satisfied, rather than fully exhausted.
