    I finished this game over a year ago and decided to write this review because I’ve been so disappointed with most of the games I’ve tried since. If you are tired of Ramboing your way through endles...

    Solid gameplay. Compelling story. Cool cross of third-person shooter with a 3D fighting game. Two words: under-rated!

    First time I saw Oni, I had come across the demo of it, along with the bonus level 2 demo, on the original Oni website. I was instantly hooked. While the graphics weren't the greatest, this game ha...

    A game that could've been, well...great.

    Great game ghat didn't live up to the hype.

    Not that good...

    Rated on January 24, 2006 by EZERICW

    This game, Oni, was not very good. Its graphics were not the fullest they could be. I am also not a very great fan of anime though. The fighting is kind of slow, even when fighting with the moves you ...

    Oni is one of those hit-or-miss games that any game enthusiast should play, but hardcore graphics lovers should avoid.

    Rated on September 19, 2006 by glitzy69

    Oni Review— The Good: Decent enough graphics, good animation, good sound, great opening/ending cinematics and refreshing fighting/shooting system. The Bad: clipping issues, some visual holes in ...

    Rated on April 12, 2005 by suzabbe

    This is a highly stylized action Anime title with a few major flaws that unfortunately overshadow what could be an excellent title. I’ll start with the bad to end on a good note. Normally PC games a...
