Product Description

Product Description

Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny expands on the original title with larger environments to explore, new character interactions, enhanced swordplay, and over twice the volume of animated movies. The game tells an epic story that blends magical realism with accurate historical accounts of 16th century feudal Japan. It begins 10 years following the events in Onimusha: Warlords, after Nobunaga, an infamous Japanese warlord, has brutalized a village. Players take the role of the hero, a young warrior and master of the Yagyu Shinkage sword fighting style, who seeks revenge against Nobunaga and to uncover his destiny.

Amazon.co.uk Review

The original Onimusha was usually described as Resident Evil with ninjas, but this superior sequel is its own man, and a very manly man with a big sword at that. Onimusha 2 still has the same awkward Resident Evil-style controls--which ridiculously makes it easier to take on four zombie ninjas in a swordfight than walk through a door straight--and the same static Resi-style backdrops, but does include some new role-playing elements, which immediately add more depth and interest than the original.

Taking on the role of a new good guy, Jubei (notable for being perhaps gaming's ugliest star--he makes Mario look like Brad Pitt), you find yourself constantly crossing paths with four other warriors who will or won't help you depending on whether you give them loads of presents or not. A typically wacky Japanese idea, but although the actually process of gift giving can be a bit tiresome the enormous replay value that having such a wide range of potential helpers at various stages brings is excellent. The increased quantity of upgradeable magic and armour available also adds more depth to the game and while at times it can still descend into mindless violence and endless boss battles this is a pleasing move away from Resident Evil and bodes well for a future second sequel. --David Jenkins

Except with a different character.... That's right no more Samonuske! This time around you guide a young Samurai named Jubei Yagyu through another epic tale of vengeance and unspeakable evil. Or something like that....
The game picks up some 10 years after the original - and what's this? The evil feudal warlord Nobunaga is back from the dead (again), and up to his old tricks in a big way! The opening movie sets the scene and handily (and obviously) introduces Jubei into the mix. The CGI is nothing short of superb; excellent motion capture, and it has to be said pretty violent. If you've played Onimusha Warlords then you'll know the sort of treat you can expect.
The graphical trend continues in the game proper. Backrounds are pre-rendered, and look amazing, with an incredible amount of detail; waves ripple on lakes, leaves blow in the wind etc etc. There are some fabulous lighting and particle effects too!
Gameplay wise it would be fair to say that Onimusha 2 isn't too far removed from the original. The controls are the same as before, as is the hack-through-hordes-of-demons gameplay - but hey! It's a winning formula, so why not stick with it?!
There are however a number of new aspects to the game, including new weaponry, new enemies, a couple of new moves, the ability to attain temporary invincibility and more importantly four other characters which aid you at different points through the mission, and are also at some points playable.
The new characters all have different fighting styles; spearfighter, fencer, ninja and riflesman. You can influence who turns up to help you out thanks to the all-new bartering system.

I've been waiting for this game to come out since I completed the first Onimusha game. Onimusha 2 has improved A LOT compared to Onimusha Warlords, the graphics are breathtaking espically the water effects. The backgrounds are still pre-rendered but GREAT. The game is 3 times bigger than the first one and you can play the game with other characters you meet. Onimusha 2 has some RPG elements in it as well as action. It took me just over 12 hours to complete the game for the first time but after watching the ending scene I found out that I have only completed 61% of the game, there was still more. Also after completing it you get 2 mini games! This game has very good replay value!
If you are liked the first one then you'll love this.
Graphics 10/10 (In game graphics are amazing so are the CG movies you see during the game)
Gameplay 10/10 (Loads of weapons compared to first game)
Sound 9.5/10 (give it 9.5 because sometimes it is hard to understand what some characters are saying)

I enjoyed the first Onimusha, but never thought it was as good as the Resident Evil series. Even though it was fun, I thought it got repetitive and needed a little something else. Onimusha 2 has changed this. Essentially it is the same game: you tread a lot of the same territory as in the original and most of the old enemies return. But this time, there is a new level of character interaction. This time, a 'gift' system has been incorporated, whereby giving relevant presents to the stereotype characters, such as clothes for the woman, booze for the warrior monk, etc, will reward you with their presence in certain fights. This element alone carries the game forward, but the fact that at certain points you get to play as these new characters makes this change a giant leap. Secondly, the graphics are a lot sharper than before, and although pre-rendered, the backgrounds still look stunning, especially the ones that feature the awesome water effects. In fact, the actual in game graphics look better than the FMV graphics. The story is similar to before, and really just there to introduce the new enemies, but as before, it is suitably enjoyable, in a camp way.
However, this game is not without its flaws: Firstly, I still don't understand why, as with the first game, borders are present at the top and bottom of the screen, reducing the overall size: surely this isn't necessary in a game that clearly doesn't push the processing power of the PS2? Secondly, the infuriating sliding block-type puzzles from the original make a return, altough at least you don't die this time if you mess them up. Thirdly, the gameplay still gets repetitive after about and hour or so, with the same old enemies reappearing over and over again.

This game is not just the hack and slash as the last was when the game progrest. In Onimusha 2 you play as Jubai a new character in the three part series, but other then Jubai you get to have four other characters as sidequests in the course of the game, done is by a gift system and the more gifts you give to someone the more you get to see there story and get to play as them in the game and in mini games.
There are also new weapons as well as all of the old ones (apart from the bishamon)such as the Ice Spear, the Earth Hammer which is great for distruction of demons and many more.
With the game having a changing story line that you decide which route to take in the game decides which exters you get apon compleation such as mini games and a Onimusha 3 tailer.
over all this games 10 times larger and better then the last and the story is gripping to keep you on the edge of your seat in a rollercoaster ride of emotions, action and laughts.
This game is fairly easy on the normal mode but if you like the harder game this is it with the hard mode almost impossable and trust me i am in the middle of it.
With the extras and the 10 hour story this game is a great buy for the gamer who loves to kill, to see a love story unroll, to have a good laught or a good long challenge then this is the game for you.
Overall the games great and deserves to be a masterpiece for the ages.
And for the graphics I would have to say capcom games have never looked so good.
