What Gamespot Users have to say about Kengo: Legend of the 9

  • User Rating 4.2

    Stay away...not today.....disco lady. This game is a very lazy attempt to gain the xbox 360 some appeal in Japan.

    I do not know where to start with this game. It is simplistic, the graphics don't look as good as they should, there is very little to do....and it is just not a worthy sequel to the previous Kengo g...

    What a P.O.S.

    Being an old fan of Kengo on the PS2 I eagerly snatched up this title without even thinking. Ok, there's the operative word phrase... WITHOUT EVEN THINKING. I cannot begin to describe the suck in th...

    Great game for history loving people such as my self!

    Kengo:Legend of the nine is truly a great game. I see how it can be rated lowly but it's not as bad as you would think. In fact if you love feudal Japanese history this game is perfect for you. The gr...

    This game is seriously under appreciated.

    Kengo Legend of the 9 is a game set in Feudal Japan with some real history behind it. You play as one of the nine legendary samurai warriors (hence the title name). Nine completely dffierent story lin...

    This isn't quite the dream team of SimCity games--no one wants or needs the lame SnapCity, and the inclusion of 1998's S

    Of course, the meat of this package is SimCity 4. As with its predecessors, it was a rewarding challenge that could keep you glued to your computer monitor for hours at a time. Five years after its in...

    Enjoyable for fans of Samurai movies

    Rated on September 15, 2007 by CorporateHammer

    This may not be the greatest game but far exceeded my expectations. First I would like to point out I am a fan of Samurai movies like Yojimbo, 3 outlaw Samurai etc.. and enjoyed Tenchu Z. The battle s...

    A worthy buy for Samurai fans!

    Rated on September 22, 2007 by eplayanime

    After playing this title, I have become a Genki fan. I have always enjoyed Japanese history and samurai warfare. I had previously bought Kengo 3 for Playstation 2, but was unable to navigate through ...

    It's not the greatest game in the world, but there are some decently fun moments to be had here.

    Rated on October 12, 2008 by Asagea_888

    While I agree with many of the points brought up about this game by Gamespot, I think the reviewer was a little too rough on it. It's not a great game, but it certainly isn't a horrible one. In fact...

    Stunningly Bad: A Case Study In Squandering Infinite Potential.

    Rated on September 26, 2007 by nappan

    As my review deck indicates, this game is just terrible. Truly, this is a game that took an amazing premise, a brand new generation of console, and experience in the genre and flushed it all down the ...

    Who knew that samurai swordfighting could ever be so exciting and not-annoying?

    Rated on September 27, 2007 by zombie44

    Genki, clearly a credible game designer, really made a great, great game this time. If you've ever had the desire to be a samurai, from accurate dialogue to being able to hold a sword without getting ...
