I didn't know this was a PS3 exclusive! I was actually planning on picking this up. I know it didn't score great, but I have an odd liking of really bad games for some reason :). I guess I'll pick up #3, since I know it's on Xbox!
That doesn't sound like a good game...
I'm kind of disappointed, I thought these were going to be totally absurd like everything else I saw in the game while Kyle was reviewing it.
can someone make a good samurai game please
I actually liked this game and thought it was way better than the last one. Sure you have to do some grinding to get your characters weapons and fighting styles beefed up, but there are lots of games like that and I haven't seen as much hate on them. Dark Souls will come to mind as a recent example of a grind game. Difficulty and dropped items/weapons do get better on the harder modes. Still I am able to one hit kill most enemies on Hard excluding the important boss like characters. The review that I saw saying that the game was unrealistic because it would take ten or more hits to kill an enemy clearly didn't play the game enough or didn't upgrade their weapon as they should have.
The game caters to a few play styles and sometimes the game will reflect that. You can play as a noble samurai, but then the game is fairly boring as looting a body and attacking people for no reason will be counted as a bad act. However you can also play as a jerk in the game and steal stuff and kill every npc you see. This will make the in game economy worse off and things will cost more and less items will be had, but it you are just going to steal the items anyway does that really matter how much they cost. And for anyone who doesn't want to be serious you can have lots of fun dressing up your samurai in silly outfits or run around half naked swinging your sword around.
Now I wouldn't say that this is the best samurai game, but it does have a better roleplaying and combat than the Dynasty Warrior series in my opinion. So all in all it is a "good" game and its a bit better if you have been a fan of the series.
I'm reminded of that replay with the cowboy/samurai and his sexy time sexy rating...
My apologies for the shameless self promotion but if you are genuinely curious about this game, I made a "let's play" series of it on youtube and mainly I wanted to show off this game so people are sure it is there kind of game and know if it is worth your money.
