Game Storyline
Three years have passed since the young swordsman, Yoshitsune Minamoto, and his warrior-monk companion, Benkei Musashibo, defeated the Heishi Clan and their leader in a brutal battle over the possession of "Hinaishi"-- divine jewels that bring their owners godlike powers. With that success, it had finally seemed that peace, however temporary, had arrived.

During this time, Yoritomo Minamoto, Yoshitsune's older brother and leader of the Genji clan, tracked the remnants of the Heishi to the South of Japan where he and his army were preparing to eliminate their weakened numbers.

However, rumors begun to spread of new, ungodly creatures appearing within the Heishi ranks and their evil force re-strengthening, even without the use of the Hinaishi.

Now, with the aid of his closest friends and some unlikely allies, Yoshitsune must once again wield his fierce blades and summon the powers of the Hinaishi in and epic battle to save all of Japan.

Gameplay
Prepare for a next generation action/adventure that combines dramatic and fluid martial arts combat with an ancient historical tale of feudal Japan.

Execute gracefully articulated swordplay while pulling off lightning quick lunges, multi-strike combos, and spectacular special moves that differ depending on the characters you are playing and the weapons the wield.

Instantly swap between the four playable characters; young samurai Yoshitsune Minamoto, mighty warrior-monk Benkei Musashibo, Tamayori priestess lady Shizuka, and Lord Buson, the God of War who has taken up the earthly form of Kagekiyo Taira, the antagonist from the original Genji game, Dawn of the Samurai. Take advantage of each of their unique fighting styles and weapons, or pull off devastating team-based combos by interchanging characters between attacks.

Partake in massive battles against hundreds of enemies simultaneously with no loss of frame rate or detail. Melee your way through entire armies on the battlefield while an epic war rages on around you.

Equip and instantly switch between to different weapons at any time. Begin a move with one weapon, and finish off with another for devastating combination attacks. Each character has their own signature-specific weapons to choose from, of which you're certain to develop favorites.

Collect Amahagane and Mashogane crystals, and then use them to strengthen your characters and weapons. You choose which warriors and weapons to upgrade, making each and every game experience unique.

Genji Days of the Blade is probably most notorious for its silly E3 demonstration. The speaker talked about how it portrayed authentic feudal Japanese battles - involving Giant Enemy Crabs :) He also talked about novel concepts such as "attacking its weak point for maximum damage" and how you could do (gasp) REAL TIME weapons change in the game. This last item actually looks very silly - you could be swinging one sword, hit a button and MID SWING the sword changes into a new weapon.

In general, this is a fighting game set in PRE feudal Japan, i.e. 1187. I ran a Feudal Japan newsletter for many years, and feudal Japan was the 1500s, the days of Oda Nobunaga and the wars then. Back in 1187, there was a quite different government setup. If you're curious about this time period, read The Tale of Genji sometime by Lady Murasaki - this is acclaimed by many as the first novel ever written. It was written back in the 11th century! It's a great read even today, which is quite an achievement.

So back to the gameplay. You play a young two-sword warrior and have as your pals an older warrior, a female warrior and a war-god turned spellcasting warrior :) You fight through various Japanese landscapes and settings, taking on the Bad Guys. You have your combat techniques and magical powers to help you triumph.

The graphics are very impressive. In the cut scenes, you can see the fabric weaves on the layers of kimono, the metallic sparkle in the lacquerware, the rippling heat waves by the fire. During gameplay the character movements were fluid and natural. Fabric pieces would sway and tiny, glistening sparks would float on the air. Some scenes were really quite lovely in a painting sort of way.

Genji is set in ancient Japan that is supposed to be historical, However when you run into giant crabs and Ladies floating around with butterfly wings, you start to question that concept.
The graphics are awesome, apparently next generation quality and great sound to make you feel like you're in mythical Japan.
The problems with the game are evident. You'll start playing the game and then when a battle is over, you'll have no idea where to go or what to do so you'll start wondering all over the map until a cut scene starts.
The camera doesn't help either. All too often your character will be fighting something off-screen or your character will disappear through a wall and you'll have no idea what or if you're hitting anything and you'll get frustrated when you die because you couldn't see what was happening.
The game play is hack and slash. All that happens is "kill this giant crab, wonder around, go through the door, activate a cut scene, repeat." There's no variety in the game play that keeps the player interested.
If the game had fixed the weak points (which could have been very easy for some such as the camera), this could have been at least an average game. But these flaws are not acceptable for games anymore (if they ever were) and more should be expected for a next generation game.

PROS
Excellent graphics
Set in mythical ancient Japan
CONS
No idea where to go
Repetitive and straight forward gameplay
"Where am I?" camera

One of the early PS3 games, this one really doesn't take full advantage of the PS3 capabilities. I played and solved the original Genji on PS2 which was fun to play. This game however seems to take a backward step in gameplay. The camera is horrible. The right control stick which for most games allow you to change the camera angle is used for a dodge move, so many times I had to walk the character around to see things including enemies which were noted on the mini map but out of my sight on the main screen. The game also suffers from repetition. Too many similar missions against the same enemy. The graphics are spruced up and decent for an early PS3 game and the music is nice. I can only recommend this game if you get it for 10 bucks or less.

Genji Days of the Blade was a launch title for the PS3, I was reluctant to get it when it was $69 due to my previous negative encounter with Genji: Dawn of Samurai. Its safe to say at this point I'm glad I waited and picked this up for $5 at a pawnshop.

Genji Days of the Blade (Genji 2) takes place pretty much after the events of Genji 1, people who didn't play the first Genji need not worry, the events of the game are shown to you before you start playing Genji 2. Yoshitsune and Benkei both make a second appearance in this game, you also get to play as Shizuka who was previously unplayable in the first game. Also joining the cast is the god of war Buson who has decided to use the body of Genji 1's boss. Overall the characters all have some sort of negative trait to them except for Yoshitsune who can practically attack non-stop, Benkei is absolutely useless, hes much too slow to do anything except for when you have to use his special attack, he is really painfully slow, sure he has massive attack power, but what good is it when you can only get in 1-2 hits before taking a few hundred point of damage? Shizuka is a little faster at attacking the Yoshitsune, but can only string together 4 combos at a time and then slightly pauses, causing her to take lots of damage, and of course being a female character her defense is pitifully low, this wouldn't be bad if you didn't have to worry about her dying, but if even 1 character dies, its game over and you have to start from the beginning! Then there's Buson, sure he looks badass, but his move set stinks, you have to always strife to get his true move set, so he will sting together 4 attacks then you have to time his strife to do another 4 attacks, useless for some bosses as they move to fast for you to get any decent hits in.
