    quick to learn, fun to play...TOTALLY ADDICTIVE!

    Bujingai: The Forsaken City, is an excellent game. At first its a little confusing, but you will quickly figure it out. The story is pretty standard, ancient swordsman returns to save the world from his mortal enemy wh... Read Full Review

  • Review Score:9

    Although I have not completed this game, I have played for many hours, and it's a real pleasure. It's a bit like a cross between Devil May Cry, a Hong Kong Action flick, and Crimnson Tears 2. A good cross. There is immen... Read Full Review

    An Excellent Devil May Cry Remake. This game has all the action and intense feeling like a Old School Japanese Movie. The Climbing of the wall, Flying Briefly through the air, and the ability to fight can counter attac... Read Full Review

    A totally awsome game

    Bujingai Rocks. I mean, I picked up this game on a whim actually. I saw it on TV, the day before it was suppose to come out. I thought it looked good, so I watched a few movies of it on the computer and that sealed it. S... Read Full Review

    Fun combat and above-average visuals are sadly blemished by an unremarkable story and bland level design.

    Bujingai: The Forsaken City starts off with a boring, non-interactive training session that isn't exactly necessary- once you actually begin the game, you find that the movement controls are relatively intuitive, though ... Read Full Review

    "This game, though not a big hit in the gaming world, has a few surprises that I've never seen in a game like this"

    Bujingai: The Forsaken city is one of the many hack and slash games I've seen released to date. Though I've played more first person shooters and fighters than any other game lately, this game caught my eye. It didn't ca... Read Full Review

    an awesome game but to repetitive

    Bujingai: The Forsaken City is a strange animal in the realm of hack-and-slash titles. Originally released a while back in Japan, Bujingai tells the story of Lau, an agile and androgynous martial arts hero whose visual d... Read Full Review

    Spectacular, easy to learn and -above all- fun!

    Bujingai is basically a simplistic Devil May Cry with strong Hong-Kong swordfighting fantasy elements. You take control of a bigger-than-life swordsman named Lau, who questions the dominion of demons over the human race.... Read Full Review
