Product Description

Product Description

Yagyuu Juyuubei, a traveling swordsman, has returned to his hometown only to find it under siege. The aggressor is none other than Nobunaga Oda, the same undead warlord who plagued the first game's hero. Starting with only his sword and his surpreme combat skills, Yagyuu vows to defeat Nobunaga and free his homeland from terror.

Amazon.com

Onimusha 2: Samurai's Destiny expands on the original title with larger environments to explore, new character interactions, enhanced swordplay, and more than 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 later than 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. In the process, he will uncover his destiny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too much talking May 29, 2002
Great game for people who would like to see Onimusha1 and Final Fantasy combined.
Improvements were definately intended on character interaction. The games story line is greatly based on how you trade special items with the other four characters in the game. I've finished the game twice but I've yet to unlock all of the side stories with the other characters. Personally I think this detracts from the game but my wife, who loves the long Final Fantasy stories, loved trying to figure out how to open all the side stories. Some of the side stories do add a lot to the game, I just didn't like spending so much time trying to unlock them all.(I usually hand the controller to my wife whenever the game switches from action to game plot ;-)
If you don't mind talking to all the characters in the game two or three times, then you'll probably love this game. The action and graphics are much better than the first Onimusha. There's also a couple new weapons that add significantly. (The War Hammer kicks @$$) Although the game is still too short, if you liked Onimusha 1 like I did then you'll probably love this game.
Disclaimer: I bought and played the Japanese version of Onimusha2 which may be different than the American release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice April 7, 2005
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Just two words that describe Onimusha 2, absolutely good. It's so much fun to play and I think this is easily one of my favorite new games to play. My favorite character in the whole game is of course Kotaro Fuma, that ninja boy that Jubei meets in Imasho. This is such a great video game, the scenery (in Imasho alone) is gorgeous!

The fighting is fun in this game. The backstories many characters have are great. I didn't really like the character interaction but I can see how some people might like it. Overall, this is a great game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great game, despite some minor flaws. November 30, 2002
By A Customer
Onimusha 2 is a great game, pure and simple. For those who have played and enjoyed the first game, Onimusha: Warlords, you will be in for a treat. Gameplay is essentially the same, but the graphics and the story are even better.
The game pits you as Jubei Yagyu (really Yagyu Jubei Mitsuyoshi - a real historical swordsman, son of the great Shinkage ryu swordsman Yagyu Tajima Munenori), on a mission to avenge the death of your clan. Along the way you receive the aid of one of four other characters, who you must first befriend by trading gifts. Each character has his/her own distinctive tastes, and you must choose wisely in order to keep them all happy. At first I thought this aspect of the game was gimicky, but I must admit that I rather enjoyed it. It is just another one of the puzzle-solving pieces that you must perform in this game.
The graphics are top-notch, with lush backgrounds and beautifully-rendered characters. The dubbing/voice acting is pretty bad, but no worse than in any dubbed samurai movie (which is why I always recommend watching foreign movies with subtitles--I wish Capcom would have done that with this game).
Some might complain that the game is too short. If you are like me - a part-time gamer who plays a few minutes here and there when I have the chance - then this won't be a problem. It seemed like a fine length to me.
The one thing that bugs me about this game is the demon thing. I know, I know, it is a game in part about demons and monsters. But for a game set in feudal Japan, you'd think they would use traditional Japanese mythological creatures, such as tengu. Most of the enemies you meet are fine, but the bosses are just plain wierd. They have strange, very non-Japanese sounding names. And what is with the robots you meet in the gold mine?

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite Samanosuke, but... September 19, 2002
Onimusha 2 is not a bad game, actually, it's pretty damn good. The additional characters, variety of bonus mini-games, and special items obtained thereafter all make for great replay value, and the Earth Hammer is off the hook. Yagyu Jubei is a famous swordsman in Japan, so it's nice to see more historical references.
However, the game did not carry on the survival-horror feel quite as well as did the first game, and the trading system is a bit time-consuming (and sometimes, just plain frustrating, especially when trying to convince that dog at the gold mine to give you his buried items). Also, the controls get very frustrating when playing the mini-games, particularly when trying to uncover film strips and run up and down spiral staircases. Finally, what happened to the Japanese dialogue? Jubei does not gain that pimp recognition that Samanosuke carried when speaking in that goofy dubbed voice. I am looking forward to the third addition to the series; it would be nice to finally fight and kill Guildenstern (where was he this time around?) and that little punk Tokichiro, as opposed to the same bosses over and over again. Here's an idea: take Kibagami Jubei from "Ninja Scroll" to star in the game, as well as the Eight Devils of Kimon; they would make for excellent bosses and there wouldn't be a need to have repeat boss battles (I guess make Nobunaga the Shogun of the Dark?).

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the buy, but suffers from bad sequel syndrome September 10, 2002
By A Customer
Verified Purchase
Onimusha 2 is without a doubt a thrilling game, which I greatly enjoyed.
But fans of the original game may suffer a little disappointment storywise, as this game suffers from "bad sequel syndrome", failing to match the original's epic feel, while providing a rather chaotic and foolish plot, and spoiling the game's environment with out of place futuristic anachronisms.
On the good side, graphics are improved substantially. They are one of the best that I've seen in a PS2 game. The FMV's are breathtaking and thrilling, although not numerous. The pre-rendered backgrounds are beautiful and captivating. Kudos for the sea, especially! Fighting is a blast, as in the first game or better. Unfortunately, the same Resident-Evil style control scheme remains, but it should not be a problem if you played the first Onimusha.
There are added gameplay elements, like interactivity with NPC's, and items that you can collect and trade. By doing this, you can befriend NPC's which can help you along the way, and change the events in the game a little bit. There are more side quests, and more goodies added after finishing the game, giving it a higher replay value than the original. While many people say this game is longer, I found it to be only marginally so; taking about 12 hours to beat the first time, with no cheating and plenty of wandering around.
I found this game to be moderately easier than the first one. Perhaps some of this is the added practice. Fortunately, this game lacks a frustratingly insane puzzle like the infamous water puzzle from the first game.
And most importantly, Jubei is just as cool as Samanosuke, which I thought it would be very hard to accomplish in the sequel.
