Product Description

Product Description

Bujingai: The Forsaken City brings martial arts action and fantasy together, in a great 3rd-person action-adventure. In the 23rd century, humanity's need for energy caused a disaster that killed 70% of the population. Those who lived tapped into internal sources to give themselves incredible powers. 400 years later, a rift has been opened into the demon dimension, and the fiends have invaded a small Asian city. One warrior, armed with only two swords and a knowledge of magic, will face them to rescue the survivors.

From the Manufacturer

Bujingai: The Forsaken City is a third person action-adventure title that brings martial arts fantasy to life. Inspired by classic Hong Kong cinema, the player takes on the role of a spell-casting, gravity-defying warrior named Lau. Set in post-apocalyptic Asia, Lau must battle his way through an army of fiends to rescue a fellow warrior who has been possessed by a demon. Lau is able to fight multiple enemies while running, gliding, floating, and running on walls. To make the action even more authentic, all of the characters in Bujingai: The Forsaken City have fluid motion capture movements that give them just as much personality as Lau.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best button smasher yet. August 16, 2004
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes, this game is essentially a button smasher, but it's a very good one. The music is fabulous, the graphics are beautiful, and it's got great control. It still has some elements of Japanese in it, which I personally like. Overall, it's a very fun game, and I would reccomend it to anybody.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boy, Gackt = INSTANT SALES. October 6, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game Bujingai is interesting. It has Easy mode and Normal mode (I'm not sure about a Hard mode... I wouldn't want to see that >_>). I started off playing it in Easy mode, and some parts made me wonder whether I was still playing in Easy mode. Especially some of the bosses. You really have to have good real-time playing skills, or else they'll be so fast and leave you behind to diiie.

The story and stage mode of Bujingai remind me very much of Chaos Legion. If you've played Chaos Legion, you've played Bujingai in some respect. However, that's not to say that Bujingai isn't a great game. The main character Lau uses two swords and a seriously punch-packing array of spells.

This game is minimalistic at best. Very short, but beautiful in it's execution. There's nothing too complicated (except maybe the gliding thing.. argh, that killed me) and that makes Bujingai have both stress relieving properties (hack and slash!) and a better replay value than some games.

There's also the unlockables. Every fitfh gold coin you collect you unlock something. The unlockable interviews, among other things alone are worth playing the game many times.

All in all, I recommend this game.

..Wow, I managed to go through this and not mention Gackt, once!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great hack'n'slash November 4, 2004
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As other reviews pointed out - not much depth, but extremely fun. You can get by by just hitting the attack button, but there's more to it if you choose to make it more complicated. For example by learning how to do magic reversals, you can finish off bosses much faster then by hacking away at it.

Great Graphics, lots of style, some elements of puzzle-solving. Great game. I would wait for the price drop, though.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
You wind up with Bujingai: The Forsaken City. Developed by Tatio, this game is litterally Devil May Cry, on crack. The game basically boils down to you running..or leaping, or flying all over various levels, beating the crap out of anything that moves.

First off, the story isn't really that strong, but it can easily be broken down. You play Lau Wang Yu, and it's your job to stop your once friend, now rival Lei Shen-Long from destroying a satellite that just so happens to be connected to the life support of the Earth. I could say more, but I'd be spoiling what little story and secrets await players of this game.

The real meat of the game however, is the gameplay, and by gameplay, I mean the combat. Fast, insane, mesmerizing, the only way to describe this silky smooth dance or death, is to litterally compare it to a Devil May Cry fight infused with a grace of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Not only that, you have the ability to run on walls, glide, and fight midair. Of course, at first, you'll just bash the square button till your finger bleeds, but later on into the game, you'll find you need to actually do combos and "clash".

Whats a "clash"? Glad you ask. Clashing, is what this game is really about. When you clash, you go into an attack mode where you and the enemy parry attacks, and fight like most action stars do, in just about every Hong Kong action flic or Martial arts film. Colors fly, swords clash, and you'll even take the fights to the air, and clash while running on the walls. To be honest, you may not see these things, since the fights are entirely in your hands. I ran up the wall, the enemy followed...well the boss enemy anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars BAM comes through with Bujingai June 21, 2004
Having played the import and BAM's US version of Bujingai, I can say that the US version keeps most all of the Gackt goodness of the import version. The only main difference are the cutscenes are dubbed in English.
In my opinion it is virtually impossible to find better voice actors than they have in Japan, but BAM did manage to find some decent voice actors. The decision to dub was one that took much consideration by BAM, who did not want to offend Gackt's US fans. The choice to dub was only made because it was not technically feasible for BAM, to add subtitles and offer dual language audio. Bujingai is a single layer DVD5, and is right at the size maximum.
As for the in game sound, all of the Gackt voice samples are intact, along with the rocking Zuntata soundtrack. The soundtrack, by the way, is available separately as an import on the Zuntata Records music label. The extras you ask? They are all there, including the alternate Gackt costume, and the beautifully subtitled video extras.
I find that many reviewers are bothered by the rather unique storyline of Bujingai. The game's story doesn't seem all the strange, if you consider that Gackt Camui claims he was born on July 4, 1540, and yes as some have suggested Gackt didn't have a happy childhood. BAM really did a great job of preserving Gackt in all his glory. Don't get me wrong, even without Gackt this is one heck of a beautiful game, but Gackt just makes it all the more beautiful. Having purchased the import version, would I buy BAM's US version? I sure would, since you can never have too much Gackt Camui.
