Onimusha

Bargain Basement 17 – Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams

I've played through every installment in Capcom's samurai-flavored tales of swords and sorcery, and I have to admit that I was leery of taking a fourth trip to the well after the developers had sworn the series would end as a trilogy. Oddly enough, my fears were misplaced since Dawn of Dreams turned out to be the best of the lot, at least in terms of craftsmanship.

Take control of Akechi Samanosuke one more time, as he's sent through time to modern-day France. He trades places with 21st-century French cop Jacques Blanc, who travels to feudal Japan. Fighting separately and together, they'll stop the Genma once and for all.

Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny – Review

Game Description: Horrid creatures continue to massacre local villages, and it seems nothing can stop them. One young samurai, Jubei Yagyu, has vowed to stop the spread of evil before it’s too late. Play as Yagyu as you master the Yagyu Shinkage style of fighting. You’ll have the option of choosing a partner to accompany you or going it alone, and either decision will yield original storylines taking you through dark forests, old towns, and even gold mines. There are plenty of cutscenes and awesome voice acting to keep the 3D adventure realistic.

Onimusha: Warlords – Review

I usually like to spend the first portion of a review talking about interesting concepts or ideas present in the game I am about to review. Sometimes it takes a more personal slant, other times it might be historical or relate to current trends in the game world and society at large. After playing Onimusha, I was at a loss.
