What Gamespot Users have to say about Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny

  • User Rating:8.8

    Easily the best of the Onimusha series. Best story, best characters (even w/o samanosuke).

    Onimusha 2 is a classic. The graphics, game engine, collision detection are all grade-A. The additional playable characters coupled with the strange-but-effective gift system make every adventure new and different offer... Read Full Review

    More of the same.

    I came into Onimusha 2 thinking that Capcom would fix the mistakes of the original. Some minor issues were addressed, but the majors ones are still present. Samanasuke Akechi, the main character of the first game, is n... Read Full Review

    The first step is admitting you have a problem

    Hello, my name is Boomshakkalakka, and I'm an Onimusha addict. I'll openly admit it: I am a feudal Japan whore. I live for ancient Asian culture, and I'm obsessed with video games. So, when the two are put together, ... Read Full Review

    Just As Good, If Not Better Than The First

    In my opinion, Onimusha 2 is the best game in the series. The characters, gameplay, and the feeling you get from the game itself really immerse you in it. You feel like you're in a scummy gold-mining mountain town, or in... Read Full Review

    If you can get past the controls, you'll find this a truly immersive and epic experience.

    The sequel to Onimusha is unquestionably the best game in the series, it improves greatly over the original, while keeping the "survival-horror game for people who don't like survival-horror games" factor. You play as... Read Full Review

    A significant improvement on the original game. Great work from Capcom yet again.

    This game takes place about 10 years later after the first Onimusha game which was on the Playstation 2 and made a phenomenal success worldwide with its trademark hack and slash gameplay and stylish visuals. Here in t... Read Full Review

    More Of The Same

    There is a very familiar feel to The sequel to Onimusha Warlords. I found myself able to pick this right up and run with it. Just as if it were just another chapter in a book. Graphically the igame is a step up from the... Read Full Review

    New Character, new game mechanics, same old Onimusha.

    This game could've been great. Ultimately, it's just mediocre. It's not a bad game, but it's not good either. It's somewhere in the boring middle. Gamers will take on the role of Jubei Yagyu of the Yagyu clan. This chara... Read Full Review
