    A beautifully-constructed, rewarding action adventure that is a lot more than the sum of its parts.

    If you've played Odin Sphere or Grim Grimoire, you'll probably know what to expect coming into this one. And even then, you will be pleasantly surprised at what Muramasa: the Demon Blade has to offer...

    If you call it a shallow after playing Shura and Shigurui, then how does any video game entertain one such as yourself?

    Brilliant game coupled with a beautiful art style and graphics. Calling the combat system shallow is extremely ignorant.

    This game is everything it was hyped to be. It has beautiful art, with a unique, unadulterated Japanese feel to it - the story and characters fit in straight with the setting, on par with many folklor...

    It's a good 2D hack and slash, don't use the wii remote though, lol.

    Rated on September 13, 2009 by GeekyDad

    Muramasa isn't really a difficult game to describe. It's not innovative in terms of gameplay, and it's not terribly deep, either. But it is an incredibly well-polished machine that satisfies on many l...

    That's it, I'm done.

    Rated on September 14, 2009 by triforced3

    I'm tired of this Gamespot, every game that's original and different your reviewers give terrible reviews. I refuse to believe a game like this, has "less depth" than Guitar Hero 5, or The Beatles Roc...
