Alright on the stinkometer this game comes up with not stinking at all, an almost perfect 2 out of 10. (The higher the rating the more it stinks)

Why would I say a game is THAT good? Well, when I got it for Xmas I had no idea what I was getting into.

I read the back of the box and some reviews online all I got was Samurai...missing 48 body parts...how fun...I get to play with a parapelegic!

But that's not the case at all!

You play as Hyakkimaru a man whose been robbed of 48 body parts by demons as a child, but they've been replaced by some...er...better things.

For instance, he has two fake arms and hands, BUT he can take them off at the elbow to reveal two devastatingly sharp swords, he also has a gatling gun in his shoulder and a cannon in his knee...(keep in mind you ARE in fuedal Japan) So basically you're a war machine.

When you get new parts Hyakki also gets better, becoming faster, more aware of his surroundings, able to speak, see in color, run extremely fast, and so much more.

The game has a progressive storyline and let's go back to stages to tell you if you missed any "fiends" (if you defeat a fiend (boss) then you get one of Hyakki's body parts!)

If I needed to mix two games together to get this...you'd have to mix Dynasty Warriors and Spartan: Total Warrior.

This game has a very unique part to it, when battling regular monsters, if you hold triangle till Hyakki's sword glimmers and then release, you will enter about a 10 second mode where you have to push the buttons as they come up on the screen, the more you push the better reward the monster drops. This can be anything from a health boost to cannon balls to bullets to swords to anything!

It's not the most pretty of games, but it does have solid action. While its gameplay is not as refined as Devil May Cry or other action/adventure games, and the voice acting is about as one could expect for the "Let's localize everything" era of dubbing on the ps2, I still find it a satisfying game.

You play as Hyakkimaru in a journey to find the 48 demons that took his body parts when he was born, and join up with a young thief named Dororo. The game's stages follow a very straightforward route, but there are side objectives to find; not all of the demons are story-essential and laid out for you to discover, and you will have to explore over large areas to try and find them all. Finding all 48 demons allows you to access the final fight of the game and the true ending.

Combat is done in simple hack-n-slash style; square is your light attack, triangle is your heavy attack. Holding triangle to charge your heavy attack as a standalone attack will allow you to enter into a QTE flurry of buttons. Finishing this combo successfully will give you health drops, ammo for your projectile weapons, and such. The bosses start out simple, but can get quite challenging.

All in all, not the best game, but it's still fun.

Solid game. Camera angles can be a little off sometimes, but otherwise this is an enjoyable game. You're a undead-type ninja guy who is looking to collect his body parts that these other bad dudes took from him long ago. It's a neat premise, and makes for an interesting story. As you gain a body part, your stats go up or you gain a move etc. The story draws you in, the action is solid, and the graphics are nice and smooth. You play as this ninja guy with swords for arms, and you have a sidekick girl/guy (?!?) who helps you out. You can tell him/her (?) to help fight, or pick up nearby objects, etc. It's a great game overall and I'd recommend it.
FYI: Just won the game. Pretty short. No real re-playability. Unsatisfying ending. It's a FUN game but it wasn't very difficuly and it wasn't very long.

Of all the video games I purchased for my PS2, Osamu Tezuka's Dororo (not Blood Will Tell, please, it's a horrible title) is my most precious for several reasons.
One, it is an adaptation of an original manga by Osamu Tezuka, the founder of the modern manga and anime and one amazing storyteller.
Two, having read the original book, and having read several series he drew and then did anime adaptations, I think the game's screenwriter, which also happens to be someone working for Tezuka Productions, really respected Tezuka's vision. Why, even though the game producers added new characters that didn't exist in the original story, along with one story twist in the game's last chapters that I didn't expect and which wasn't in the manga, the story and art visuals were respected Tezuka's vision of life, his humanism, and his storytelling techniques. A great applause to the screenwriter!

Three, the visuals of the game. Though they are not in high-definition and in high quality like today's games (Mass Effect or Final Fantasy), the game's visuals were very impressive. Indeed, the artists gave a great atmosphere and tensions to the game through the colours, the landscape and the movie cut-scenes. A great idea from Sega to put some behind the scenes for the motion capture they used during the in-game cut-scenes. It allows us to see how they made their work.
And four, I also loved the music, which set the best mysterious atmosphere to this dramatic story.

My only let-down was the camera which was sometimes confusing to use as its angles rook uncomfortable positions when playing. A problem I solved by pressing on one of the buttons to refocuse them camera. And personally, that problem wasn't that much of a bother and didn't stop me playing this game.

A great purchase for everybody who loves to play a game with a great story. And I highly suggest to people to buy the original mangas which the Vertical editor has translated into English.
