Phil Barnes  "To Start With I Thought The Game Was A Little Slow And Boring. I Bought It Second Hand And Thought Why!!. Then I Got Thru The First Couple Of Scenes And It Became Eye Opening And Darn Right Addictive. I Lost Sleep And Was Dreaming About The Levels Coming Up And Where The Game Ws Taking Me. I Have Now Gone Thru The Game 2 Times And Now Trying To Get Thru The Mini Game "oni Spirits". The Lastablility On This Game Is Awesome. Loved The Panda Suit."

Jason Carey  "I Thought Onimusha Was Flawless. The Action Moved Smoothly And Efficiently, Making Up For The Small Amount Of Different Moves The Characters Can Do. Most Striking Of All Was The Scenery, Some Of Which I Had To Actually Stare At For Ages, Even Pausing In My Play To Do So. It Almost Made Me Wish I Could Go Back To Feudal Japan And Visit Such Places. It Puts Others Of Its Type To Shame - Even The Brilliant Resident Evil Series."

Daniel Kato  "The Graphics Are Totally Amazing In This Game And The Main Character Looks And Moves Almost Real. Unfortunately Because The Game Uses The Resident Evil Style Of 3d Characters Moving Around A Flat Background Picture, Quite Often You Notice That People Seem To Be Floating Above The Ground Rather Than On It.

There Was Far More Fighting In This Than I Expected And The Limited Moves Meant That It Occasionally Got A Little Boring, But Thankfully A Fantastic Unfolding Story And Brilliant Graphics Kept My Interest From Start To Finish."

Phil [mengsk]  "This Game Is The Best Game On Ps2 As Of Now. Capcom Continues To Surprise Me With Every Game It Has.

Okay, Let's Start Out With The Beginning. The Game Starts With The Best FMV Ever Seen In A Video Game. Its Like Watching A Movie That You Control.

I Quickly Forgot Who I Was When Playing This Game Because It's That Good! The Controls Are Resident Evil Style Along With The Camera But The Controls Are Sensitive Thanks To Ps2's Controller. The Camera Does Give You Some Problems Like Really Big Monsters Blocking Your View And When You Get Surrounded You Take Cheap Hits When Attacking, But If You Master The Game This Wont Happen. The Bosses (and Most Monsters) Require Strategy To Defeat Unlike Just Shoot Untill The Things Dead You Need To Block Get Out Your Bow (for Some Enemies)or Your Matlock Rifle.

The Story Does Seem Boring In The Start (save The Princess) But It Unfolds Into Something Much More At The End. This Game Is The Best If You Have A Ps2 Buy This Game First! You Will Be quickly Addicted To The Graphics And Gameplay."
