Let's get one thing out the way right off the bat: Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers was made for one group of people in mind. That group is guys who love to see beautiful women in skimpy outfits. So what are these lovely ladies doing? They're beating up a bunch of zombies or engaging in boss fights with another lass in a skimpy outfit. But I believe it takes more than ogling at women or mindless violence to get me to buy a game. Yes, there are problems with Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers. First off, the camera wanders about too much and off screen enemies hit me with too many cheap shots. Then, the Wiimote motion controls are sluggish and clunky as to encourage mindless arm flailing. Then, there's the lack of depth; there are only eight stages in the story part of the game, so the game makers make you go through it with different characters. Each run goes about two hours. There are a few differences between each of the four women available, but that didn't quench my thirst for more levels. Besides, the story is about some strange blood is completely disposable. (As if anyone is going to pay attention to that.) The other modes don't help much either; all you do is beat up zombies either by yourself or with a friend. Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers will satisfy some players needs - it is just not quite enough to meet my expectations. RENT IT.
this could have been a nine but the frustrating camera angles and repetitive gameplay dropped it down a couple. funny thing is i bought this game for my Wii just because it's so much fun. Not as fun on the xbox thus the overall low ratings. But for less than 15 bucks a Wii must have.

ok, so the title does bring the guys to play. Being a guy, yes, I had to atleast try it, even with the bad reviews people give. I have to say though, I did enjoy playing this one. It isn't a perfect game, but it is fun to play. I enjoyed the controls and killing zombies is always fun. I can't say everyone will agree with me, but it is worth atleast renting to try. I will probably end up buying this one at some point.
