Ten years after the lone swordsman Samanosuke rose up against an army of demon warriors, Nobunaga's evil campaign continues to wreak havoc across feudal Japan. A young warrior, Jubei, returns home to his remote and once vibrant village--now in ruins, destroyed by Nobunaga's minions. With vengeance in his heart, Jubei launches upon an epic and magical quest, which will reveal his ultimate destiny. Earn the respect of confidants along the way to help Jubei battle demons, monstrous bosses, overcome ingenious puzzles and defeat Nobunaga's pillaging hordes.
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.
  • Enhanced and remodelled sword-moves produce devastating attacks and combinations
  • Call on other characters to help you defeat the evil Nobunaga and his demon army
  • Involving storyline brought to life by renowned Japanese film directors
  • Some of the most amazing and realistic FMV sequences ever conceived
  • Unique historical setting combined with breathtaking graphics and sound

When PS2 came out fans of Sony's powerhouse salivated across the globe at its next Gen Capabilities, when we were all teased by the first screenshots we were wowed by the smoothness and detail, unlike anything we had seen before, with PS2 came a number of release titles that most have forgotten or have been surpassed in such a way as they do not bear thinking of anymore. Sadly one of these is the Original Onimusha, with its Resident Evil controls and engine we had a lovely idea with lovely graphics and better, faster combat than the sluggish 'BANG BANG' of the RS series, sadly like so many old titles Onimusha went forgotten and with it its wonderful sequal Onimusha 2 also goes unnoticed and so brutally underatted that I almost feel the need to end some lives for not advertising this more effectively. It is in short a work of art and one of PS2's most superior of titles especially now since it has gone forgotten in the realms of gaming save only for a few lucky fans who own a copy.

You are once again a Samurai with an Unpronounceable name who when battle hardened can become the invincible Onimusha, we begin in a little village of Yagyu in the Rain and we learn it has been burned to the ground by demons and you are left to find the culprit and gleefully hack away at all oncomers who, lets be honest now, do not stand a chance. The game much like the first is pre rendered and uses the same fighting engine and although the controls are often sluggish, as were those of early Resident evils, it is still a masterful game and one that needs, even begs to be played. Moving through little towns to mines and long lost islands and even the great demon realm to uncover the truth behind your destiny it is all portrayed beautifully, often with mystery and just a little unease as you traverse a demon forest only to be attacked by a boss that you have already beaten once but follows you throughout. There is even a hint of role play in here as you can talk to all the villagers of the local towm and even take part in a few little sub quests, one of noteable intrigue is where you have to find a melon for a dying man: Why? Who knows but it adds a little depth to not only the game but the games Hero Jubei.

With Multiple Bosses, who require strategy to kill and in one case patience to wait through three seperate fights before you learn the ability to kill him the game is brimming with character and full of enjoyment.

Its a shame not many people realise how good this game is, Find it in the 3 for £20 pile at game and then pay full price for it, its worth it.

Great underatted gaming bliss

Get it now I beg you
