5.0 out of 5 stars Must have the will of the warrior October 16, 2009

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been waiting for this game for a while and this game was near impossible to find, but I finally found a copy and got to play for the first time last night. It follows the along the same model of the original The Way of the Samurai. There are tons of swords and fighting styles, that will keep you enthralled for hours upon hours, and once you find that certain sword/style that fits you, you can learn new techniques and level the sword so you can become the ultimate assassin, protector, or just plain ole bad a**. This game is full of action around every turn, and the best concept is that you can choose which path you want to take, if you want to become a rich samurai you can join the fujimori clan, or you can be a sole wanderer a ronin,or you can protect the citizens of a poor city who are being heavily taxed, or you can plot against the fujimori clan and join the ouika clan who are a bunch of thieves and robbers, and the beauty of it is it's all up to you which path you choose. The fighting in this game is superb, depending on which sword you use that is the fighting style used, or you can fight bare handed which is pretty fun as well. I thoroughly enjoyed and am still enjoying this game, if this game sounds like something you might like, or if your like me, I really enjoy old samurai movies especially Akira Kurosawa films, you'll love this game. One of my favorite things about this game is one of the faces you can choose for your samurai looks almost exactly like Toshiro Mifune. In all I give this game a 5 out of 5. Maybe more, this is possibly one of my favorite games of the year.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, kind of repetitive January 20, 2010
By H. Wang
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm reviewing this game after putting in about 30 hours so far into it. I'm also reviewing from the perspective of someone who has not played the previous installments in the series, so my comments will be based mostly on the merits of the WOTS3 alone.

I bought the game based on the mostly positive reviews I saw here on Amazon (the decent price point also helped). I too did not see this game in any of my local video game stores or big box retailers so it was nice, being able to find it here.

As for the gameplay - you start off as a samurai who wakes up in a village and over the course of the game you can opt to choose to help one (or both, or none) of 2 major samurai factions/clans, or choose to help the village you woke up in, or pretty much do whatever you want and help nobody as well. One great aspect of the game has been the freedom to choose your destiny, and one of the big selling points of this game is the fact there are so many different endings you can choose from.

It is helpful to note that after you achieve one ending, you can carry over your stats and weapons into a new save, so that you don't have to start all over again in terms of accumulating items. Given the deep weapons creation system in this game and the huge number and variety of weapons you can make or choose from, it makes sense that you carry over items in each incarnation of the game you subsequently start.

Gameplay is relatively fun, with the combat mechanics being very deep and fulfilling. You can learn many different moves and combined that with the variety of weapons and stances you choose from, it definitely caters to both the experts who like deep combat, or even button mashers who like to hit X 100 times a minute to slog through a fight.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ambitious, but lacking March 19, 2013
By Walter
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As a preface, I have never played Way of the Samurai 1 or 2, so this was my first experience with the franchise. I downloaded the title from the X-Box Live Arcade games on demand. I was drawn to it because of my fascination with Japanese culture and my love of sandbox-type games, but it ultimately failed to deliver. Honestly, I was reminded of the Fable games: you are promised open-ended gameplay with limitless choices, but given a linear experience in which none of your "choices" alter the game in the slightest.
I'll break it down, as people seem to do with these reviews:
Graphics - The graphics are pretty basic. I'm not the sort of person who will ever disregard a game because it is ugly, but if that sort of things bothers you, definitely avoid this title. The characters are acceptable, but the environments are bland and forgettable. Honestly, I think I played games that were more polished than this on the previous generation of consoles.
Sound - Turn it off. The game cycles through a short list of tracks that get annoying really quickly. The songs are at least in an appropriate style and theme, just very limited. The Japanese voice-acting is fine (I think. I don't speak Japanese, so it isn't fair for me to judge), but the English dubs are pretty bad. You are better off listening to your own music while playing this game.
Gameplay - The fighting is the best part of this game. You can play through it like a simple hack-and-slash (I found that most enemies are pretty easy to defeat by just mashing the attack button over and over), but there are layers of depth to the mechanics, as well. You have different styles and different weapons to deploy, and timing counter-attacks and combos well can feel very satisfying.

3.0 out of 5 stars doesn't keep your attention.
It's fun at first but then as you go on it's very very repetitive.
I wouldn't recommend it at all.
