One of the first games I got with the PS2 was Onimusha. I am not a huge fan of samurai combat games, but this one was different, not only in style, but game play as well. It is very like Resident Evil in Samurai times. The game is not difficult or long at all. One can beat the game in under 3 hours. That is nothing in today's PS2 world, but it is entertaining enough to bring you back for more.
Battles are easy and power ups come as you progress through the game and collect trinkets. If you beat the game you can try a harder level or dress up the main character in a panda suit and fight (very funny).
This is the beginning of a great series of games. I highly recommend renting the series beginning with the original. You will be entertained and it will not take that long either.
