Product Description

Product Description

Set in ancient Japan and steeped in real-life folklore and mysticism, Otogi: Myth of Demons is the story of Raiko, an undead warrior who must stop a ferocious demonic army that has been unleashed upon the earth. As a long-forgotten doomsday myth materialises, Raiko must quickly master more than 30 weapons and 12 varieties of magic to dispatch endless hoards of demon warriors, massive boss characters and everything else that gets in his way.

Blending frenetic fast-paced 3-D action with deep RPG elements that allow gamers to upgrade weapons, magic and character attributes, in addition to managing an inventory of special items, Otogi: Myth of Demons delivers more than 25 massive, highly-destructible environments to explore and decimate. Trees, walls, furniture and even entire buildings can be destroyed as gamers master dozens of special moves and techniques.

5.0 out of 5 stars well done sega.... 20 Aug 2003
...for picking this up for a UK release. Otogi has been out in japan for some time and is a wonderfully atomospheric game.
Based on a re-imagining of an ancient japanese fairy tale, you play raiko, a demon slayer. The game basically requires you to kill lots of demons and kill huge bosses. however, whats really fun is the way the environments shatter in the wake of your attacks.... buildings crumble, cliffs colapse - all done with a great visual style and brilliant sound effects.
I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good action game,,, and it will do nicely until ninja gaiden finally comes out!

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting game.. 15 Feb 2005
After being a recent convert(ee) to xbox games from a good few years PC ing I picked this up on the strength of the graphics on the back of the box(wow, 28 now, been playing games since about 7 years old on many consoles one day I will learn no? maybe). Anyway, slapped it in played for half an hour. Hmm..bored already. Quite amazing graphics though lovely atmospheric feel. Could use this graphics engine on a new tomb raider. Nice music. Extremely annoying repeating boss samples and womens voice with reverse reverb grating. Several weeks passed. Picked it up yesterday. I do like all the satisfying building destroying and their is a little (little) depth to the game. Actually started to enjoy it a little. Sum up: Beautiful graphics, lots of work have gone into graphics and sound. Shame the same amount of graft wasn't put into the gameplay. Their is no satisfaction in pulling off the umpteenth golden axe-esq combo. You seem to just wander through some of the demons like they are not their. Should you buy? Go on sod it. Its cheap now and if you persevere you will get something from it. A bit like 'classic' games of old with continual dying where you got slung back to the begining for making a silly mistaske or not finding something (ghosts and goblins, shinobi as mentioned, need I go on?)

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent title 27 Aug 2003
By Steve
I have played the pre-release demo of this game, and i have to say, it uses the xbox graphics wonderfully. The Gameplay is fast paced, and action filled. The game uses RPG style point based stages. The idea is that you have to purify places of Demons. As a demon hunter you posess magical powers and really impressive weapons to slice and dice your demonic foe. Fans of anime will particularly enjoy this title, but it is still accessible to non-fans.
The action does get slightly repeated, as wave after wave of demons come at you, until you unlock the boss demon by completing certain puzzles. Once the boss demon is slaine you can continue to the next stage.
The game also has stealth feel to it, as you can use your abilities to sneak past demons and kill them before they even smell you.

Otogi: Myth of Demons is a third person action game, with plenty of twists and turns along the way. The game moves in a stage based scenario with missions that you must complete, enemies you must destroy, and regions you must purify. For each stage completed you will gain more and more money, which you can use to buy more powerful weaponry, magic, and accessories. More so is the fact that as you improve and conquer levels, you will also level up. With this kind of traditional improvement system, the game synonymously acts like a Zelda-esque role-playing title. From giant blades and long partisans, to dark dragons and fiery phoenixes, there are plenty of great attacks to master, and trying to gain them all will help you grow in strength as well. Now as we head beyond the premise of the game's flow, there are many mechanics that try to fall in line to make it a complete experience. That experience expands to three primary categories: the challenge settings, camera, and lock-on system. One is an balanced addition with plenty of expandability; one is shoddy and lacks refinement, and the last falls right on its face. Which one is which, will be up to you to decide.

Now what could be more fun than being a powerful, demon bashing undead? From stage to stage you will be controlling Raikoh in an RPG based environment, with plenty of beat-em-up elements thrown in. You have your magical power gauge and your “mercy orbs,” which act as your life essence. You can continue to find life recovery orbs as you destroy your enemies, but your main enemy in this game is time. Being sustained by magic alone can not be good for your body, which is exactly the case here. As you continue your way through each stage, you will slowly be losing your magical energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really though... 16 Dec 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I genuinely love this game. The approach of making the levels huge puzzles as well as 3d beat 'em ups/platformers is incredible. But you know what? Its 2012. Let's not charge this much for old games!
