ONIMUSHA 3 PS2 ENGLISH

Amazon.co.uk Review

Whereas in the movies a third entry in a franchise is seldom a byword for quality, video games seem to suffer more from that "difficult second album" syndrome. In keeping with many recent titles Onimusha 3 rights all the wrongs of its immediate predecessor while taking everything that was right about the original and genuinely improving it.

On a technical level the improvements are obvious, with the backgrounds now being in full 3D, instead of just being static picture postcards, and the control system is completely new--ditching the awkward turn-and-move dynamic inherited from Resident Evil. The story, while still largely perfunctory, also offers a genuinely new setting with the fight against evil taking place not just in feudal Japan but also modern day Paris.

Once the action does get to the City of Love you're given the chance to control French cop Jacques Blanc as well as the first game's Samanosuke. Both characters are given the features of famous movie stars and although Takeshi Kaneshiro is largely unknown outside of Japan, Jean "Léon" Reno provides the face of Jacques.

To make things more interesting Jacques ends up in medieval Japan and Samanosuke has to battle on in France. A helpful little fairy called Ako is able to move between the two eras at will and thereby enables a number of interesting puzzles later in the game. It's hardly a revelation in originality but for simple demon-bashing fun Onimusha 3 is hard to beat. --David Jenkins

Onimusha 3: Demon Seige, the last game in the Onimusha trilogy is a perfect example of how to end a trilogy. It ends the series with dignity and gives closure, unlike oooh let's say the Matrix series where there is no coherent way to explain it.
Anyways the game follows the story of Samanosuke and a new character, Jacques Blanc, a Frenchman who is a part of the French army. Nobunaga has been resurrected, and along with the Genma scientist Guildenstern. Guildenstern has been able to rip through time and is terrorizing modern day France. Back in Samanosuke's 16th Century Japan Nobunaga is terrorizing people again. Guildenstern's time warp causes Jacque to be transported to 16th Century Japan and Samanosuke is transported to Modern day France. Jacques' and Samanosuke's destinies are intertwined by their ability to change into Onimusha and they must work together to both stop evil and get to their proper times.
Graphically the game is all you can expect for a straight out of Japan, awesome game. The intro and movies in this game are certainly dazzling and amazing. Ingame cinemas certainly are also great but no where near as dazzling as the intro, but you can't expect it all the way through with our aging console. Textures are smooth and the game runs very smoothly, with no slow down in the fast paced sections.
The soundtrack is good but somewhat forgettable. The battle sounds are top notch as well. The only thing that I have a gripe is that sometimes you can't hear voices that well nor do the voices sound that great. They really should of done a final fantasy and had proper subtitles, or even better, have the Japanese voices instead of the American ones.
Great controls, it lets you use either Resident Evil-esque controls or DMC style free moving controls.

Hey, this game is great, very freaking great.

I am a casual gamer and this was the third game that I have finished, ever. My first being God of War, also well cool. Initially I started playing "Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams", when that got a bit rough I bought "Onimusha 3: Demon Siege", and it was the best decision!

I ploughed through this game. Couldnt get enough, felt a bit guilty for liking it too much, then ploughed through it some more. Just because I have stated that I am in fact a Casual Gamer, doesnt mean that my opinion counts for naught. I was recommended by a respectable Playstation 2 magazine to buy this game, they are hard core gamers and know what is good.

The game play is very fluid and engaging, not since God of War was it so much fun to slaughter things. The fact that you get to play two characters, Jean Reno is one of them and he was "Leon", is very very cool, and when you get on a bit further in the game and have to use both the characters to solve some puzzles (I did this on my own) you can help but get a warm tingle in you pants. This game is beautiful to look at, you get to visit some locations twice, once in the past or future, and once in the future and past (play it, you will understand). The moves of the two characters are excellent and upgradable. The boss fights are challenging but worth it. Spoiler Alert: when you get to play as Michelle, with her rocket launcher, it just rounds up the coolness factor, it sucks that you have to complete the game to be able to play as the dude with the big stick.

I have played other games but could not be bothered to finish them because they were not cool, this is.

If you liked and loved games like God of War and Devil May Cry, you will like this.

Oh, I have to mention that the coolness of 'Demon Siege made me want to play 'Dawn of Dreams again, it also rocks hard, get that too.

I've run out of superlatives to describe this game - having now completed it three times since I got it barely a month ago (life? What life?). Until this came out, I hadn't bought a game in God knows how long and my PS2 was sitting about just gathering dust. Talk about a renaissance...
Okay the storyline's a bit thin, and some of the time-travel stuff is a bit dodgy now and again. But, with the fantastic graphics (3D interactive backgrounds!) and absorbing gameplay, who's complaining? Not only that, you get to pretend to be two famous film actors at the same time! Bargain!
Having come to this from Onimusha Warlords (I passed on Samurai's Destiny), the other noticeable thing (apart from shift from 2D to 3D backgrounds) is that the voice-synching is so, so much better. Watching Guildenstern's jaw flapping for no reason long after the dialogue had stopped could be really wince inducing in the first game. Okay it's not perfect this time around - but it's till at least 99.9% improved.
There have been times in the past when I've bought a game that has disappointed or become boring in almost no time at all. I have hardly taken this out of my PS2, and I'm still not fed up with it even after three or four weeks of intense gaming when I've hardly done anything else but trash genma. A great way to relax after work!
Probably the best game I've ever played. Fantastic.

I had never heard of onimusha 3 before and as the shop was selling it for cheap I thought I'd give it a go. I wasn't expecting much but as soon as I turned it on I saw one of the best games ever made. The graphics, gameplay, storyline and the coolness was revealed.
It is a lot like the Resident Evil series, having to solve puzzles and kill huge beasts. But onimusha is not as slow and scary. It is compltely fast and action packed.
Although the game is great it can get a bit repetetive at times, by having to continuously kill the same type of demons throughout the game.
The bosses look cool, I especially like the gianormous guard dog you have to fight with Jaques.
Overall this game is great and I think that everyone who enjoys action and puzzle solving should certainly give it a go.
