Excellent Game

Beautiful artwork and addictive gameplay: the two things Muramasa hit spot on. The gameplay is awesome and the beautiful scenery is just stunning and adds something very special to the game.

Notable pros of the game:

1.) Beautiful character, boss, and scenery designs.

2.) Addictive gameplay

3.) Each character has their own set of swords which have different special skills. Each character also has bosses unique to their storyline so the gameplay is not identical for each character.

I only have 3 complaints about the game:

1.) The travel time between areas can get tedius sometimes but this is somewhat similar to an RPG where you get experience points and level as you travel. Not my preference though.

2.) The stories are fairly weak and uninteresting for both characters.

3.) After you beat the game you're encouraged to unlock the 2 addition endings for each character (for a total of 4 additional endings). There is absolutely no additional story line added to the game but they give you different ending scenes. All of the ending scenes are pretty uninteresting and not anything someone couldn't predict so you feel cheated having spent the additional time. I probably would have been happier just stopping at beating the game once.

The cons are minor however and aren't enough to ruin the game. Definitely worth picking up.

Fun Game

I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game. The easy version was not too hard. The controls were not overly complicated to learn. The graphics were very nice.

It was a bit like playing a text adventure cave exploration game. You go from screen (cave) to screen (cave) fighting and/or finding things.

My only complaint was the story was a bit confusing or maybe I didn't pay a lot of attention at the beginning to the story.

Overall a good game.

Pure beauty

+ The game is just beautiful, the art direction is simply amazing.

+ Storyline(s) on both characters is done very well.

= It is however odd how I found the boy ninja's story to be noticeably harder. It''s not really a bad thing, it's just kinda weird.

+ The game plays as a Hack and slash RPG and is done beautifuly!

- The game almost feels too simple and to me feels like it should cost $30 & feels like it should be available on the Xbox Live Market Place.

Overall the game is fun and awesome, but personally I would wait for a good sale price.

Do Not Pass This Game!
