This is a direct port from the 2009 Wii version, but with HD. So if you played the original, don't expect too much difference here. To new comers, the 18 century Japanese hand-drawing art is nothing but stunning to look at, especially on the 5 inch OLED screen it's simply gorgeous. Prepare for an art feast. The environments have a good variety. There are snowy mountain, hot springs, forest, city, heaven and hell etc.
The translation has been redone and improved quite a lot. The Wii version's subtitle is so poor that if you don't know Japanese and read the subtitle, you don't really get the story. Details such as "無双" is easy mode but they just put it by its pronunciation "muso" which makes no sense in English, the Vita version put it as "legend", I appreciate the effort. The story itself, while is nothing comparing to The last of us etc., it's not bad by any means, giving it's an action game. (yes I'm talking to you, non-sense ninja gaiden stories). There are 2 character travelling on opposite directions, each have totally different story, and each story have 3 endings. I'll give more info on gameplay section below.
The music is pretty good, I particularly enjoy they kinda blend traditional Japanese instruments into the soundtracks. However there are only a handful soundtracks so you will hear them again and again. The sound effects are pretty good too such as the sound you cut through those ninjas' fresh, very enjoyable. The only complain is you can't adjust the volume separately. I think the background music is way too loud, there's no way to turn it down, or turn up the sound effects. Btw the dialogues are 100% voiced over, in Japanese though. They are actually pretty well-done, given that you understand what they are saying, lol.Read more ›
I would recommend this game to anyone who loves a long adventure since there are at least 3 endings to both characters. And to achieve the final one, you must play through the entire map 3 times at minimum. But there is plenty of time to grind if you want to get your full play out of this! Also with being the collectors edition, the extra items are just wonderful for any collector!
A must for the VITA player!
Before discussing any of the main aspects of the game, it's worth noting that this game is one of the most Japanese games you will ever play. What I mean by that is everything -the visuals, the music, the story and characters, the gameplay, etc.- is deeply influenced by Japanese history, culture, and folklore. For my money, this is beautiful thing. I love Japanese culture, and this game is a treasure trove that delves deeply into that. It delivers a deeply original, unique game and stands out among the increasingly homogenized gaming market we've become accustomed to here in the West.
As is the case with prior VW games, the story in Muramasa is a very character-driven affair. You get to play as one of two characters. There's Momohime (literally meaning "Peach Princess" in Japanese. That's brilliant.), a beautiful princess whose body has been taken over by a vengeful master swordsman named Jinkuro.Read more ›
Personally, I'm glad I bought it because it ended up being a great way to kill time in a hospital waiting room, and I think it's best used for a purpose like that...just something to keep you occupied. You do level up, and while your stats improve each time you level up, you never really feel stronger or better suited to handle your surroundings. You can unlock or buy items that improve your stats, and it's satisfying to get your hands on a new accessory (as the game calls it) for your character...especially if you had to clear out a Den of Evil (basically a challenge room) to get it. The most satisfying part of the game, though, comes from unlocking new swords.
Each sword has a special attack with a limited (but regenerating) number of uses.Read more ›
