    bottom line. you like samurai, you'll love this. a decent slasher with some issues.

    way of the samurai 2 will obvously appeal to samurai fans first and foremost, but it can be an attractive game to others as well. here I'll outline its pros and cons, it has both. gameplay 7/10: gameplay ranges from f... Read Full Review

    Way of the Samurai 2 reaches for the stars and barely manages a weak jump.

    Imagine, if you will, the great game that could result from a combination of Morrowind's open-ended, freeform gameplay; Deus Ex's multiple endings; Ninja Gaiden's detailed Eastern environments; and Prince of Persia's flu... Read Full Review

    Way of the Samurai 2 could've been the perfect samurai game. A proof that game development takes more than a great idea.

    I've played and enjoyed the first Way of the Samurai. It's a tough game with an innovative gameplay and immersive background. It had some bothersome flaws but it was more than just an ok game. The release of the seque... Read Full Review
