A Work of Art,
This review is from: Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Wii) (Video Game)
I remember back in the day playing Kenseiden on the Sega Master System. Could I get a game like this, old style - but with today's better technology?
I found Muramasa (Wii). What a great buy. A work of art, beautiful graphics, good playability and fun. I didn't bother getting a control pad for it, I just used the Wii mote and found this perfectly ok. Hardcore gamers would probably insist on using a control pad though.
As I played through Muramasa it developed nicely, getting better and better. There were NO difficult time consuming puzzles to solve which pleased me (I find that too many other games have these). This game has been designed well in great detail.
There is a lot to take in, many items to pick up and extra options like the ability to forge swords. Oh - and you can cook stuff too... relax in hot springs after bashing bad guys... its all good. This game seems to have stuck to its Japanese roots which I really like - adds a bit of mystery to whats going on. Check out the real Muramasa on Wikipedia - its heavy duty. This game however is rated 12 and is not a blood bath. Might not be to everyones taste. I give it 9 out of 10. GO GET IT.
