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

The graphics looks awesome for a launch PS3 game. The environments are beautiful to look at and fight in.
Boss fights are cool and traditional. Brings me back to the PSone and PS2 era of boss fights.
The fighting is awesome with a decent amount of combos that also look pretty cool. The characters has attributes, such as vitality and attack, that can be upgraded over time at your choice. Weapons are unlocked for each character throughout the story and can easily be switched in battle.
There are four playable characters that can easily be switched in battle and in mid-combo which makes for strategic combos, and seemed to be the main gameplay feature meant to be mastered by practice.
The greatest flaw of this game is the camera system. You can not control the camera. It is a fixed camera system that zooms in on your character and moves with you. That would be a really neat camera system if it would just zoom out when there are enemies around you. Throughout the game, you will be fighting with this camera system in frustration. Of course, over time you can learn to adapt, for example by constantly watching your map for enemy positions and by also keeping your character within certain areas of the map when fighting enemies; wherever you get the most viewing space between you and the surrounding enemies. Another irritating thing about the camera is that while it seems to focus on your character, it doesn't fully move with you when you jump, meaning that your character will go off screen when jumping depending on the fixed camera angles.
It is still a beautiful game. The story is going good so far.
As far as gameplay, the game plays just like onimusha, but the only exception is it lacks a camera function. The camera just stays in one place but its alright.
Anyway for $6.99 its not that bad of a purchase.
The graphics are great, it's all in the little details like the wavy lines from all of the fire in the burning envirnments and the falling petals in the forest section. Not to mention a truly awe inspiring battle atop battleships. The cinematics look fantastic despite being a bit stifled by some truly strange voice acting. The story as it is, happens to be compelling enough to carry you from place to place.
The gameplay works well with the exception of an awful camera system. Even still, I was having a blast fighting enemies on huge battlefields in Dynasty Warriors style action set pieces, lots of fun boss battles, and it was fun figuring how to best utilize each of the four swappable characters. Each character has their own distinct play style and the combos are easy to master for each of their five weapons. I felt that it added some great depth to what would otherwise be a pretty average experience.
Overall, what you have here is a game that will cost you less than five dollars and it will provide you with the upwards of 15 hours of gameplay. There's really no going wrong if you like Japanese folklore (which this draws heavily upon), and games like Onimusha. The camera issues do hurt the overall experience but not nearly enough to detract from all of the fun this fine game has to offer.
