Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny – Review

I ended up enjoying Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny a great deal more than I thought possible. The beginning is close to what I think an ideal action game should feel like in terms of structure, and it doesn't hurt that the graphics and art design are still downright amazing in some parts.

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Violence, Blood and Gore

Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny

Game Description: Horrid creatures continue to massacre local villages, and it seems nothing can stop them. One young samurai, Jubei Yagyu, has vowed to stop the spread of evil before it’s too late. Play as Yagyu as you master the Yagyu Shinkage style of fighting. You’ll have the option of choosing a partner to accompany you or going it alone, and either decision will yield original storylines taking you through dark forests, old towns, and even gold mines. There are plenty of cutscenes and awesome voice acting to keep the 3D adventure realistic.

Rise to Honor – Second Opinion

Beating up guys in Rise to Honor is fun. The combat system is unique and engaging, and honestly, it's the only thing that saves the game from complete mediocrity. Yet, like just about everything else in this title, with a little more tweaking and fine-tuning, it could have been much better.

Rise to Honor – Review

At the center of Rise to Honor is world-renowned Wushu martial arts stylist and Hong Kong film idol Jet Li, in the ass kickin' out-for-revenge hero role he's played dozens of times before on the celluloid screen.

Rise to Honor

Game Description: The story of the game is concerned with a bodyguard named Kit Yun, Jet Li, who protects the leader of a Hong Kong crime syndicate. When his charge, Boss Chiang, is assassinated, Yun must journey to the U.S. to retrieve Chiang's daughter and untangle a web of underworld mystery presumably whilst beating the snot out of anything that so much as twitches.


Game Description: Breakdown is the story of a young man freed from a mysterious organization looking to brainwash him into submission. You can not only smash soldiers, government agents, and supernatural enemies using your fists, but call upon a special energy that imbues your arms with powerful concentrations of light., Trapped inside a mysterious laboratory and unable to remember his past, Derrick Cole discovers his extraordinary powers as he fights for survival against a determined military faction and a legion of seemingly invincible super-human warriors.

Breakdown – Review

Breakdown is a perfect example of the sort of great-thinking, rotten-playing game that has a great brain, but neglects the basics backing it up. It has a great hook, especially when you consider that most respected developers today say the elusive feelings of emotional involvement and immersion are what they're after. Breakdown certainly scores major points on that front, but taken as a whole, the project achieves disappointingly uneven results.
