Way Of The Samurai 2 (PS2) by Capcom

This game looks amazing, I have the previous one and it rocked, this one is much longer, with more minigames, more characters and much more weapons.

Apart from this, the game is quite good, with extreme detail put into the ships, that are actually modelled from real ones, you can even spray the deck how you want with paints just to personalize it a bit more. For the orignal age of this game, it is very realistic with the weather and times of day. During the night, it is harder to see, and in heavy seas and rain the game gets alot harder. Overall, the game is average and only people who… Read more
