    The return of a Capcom classic

    |
    Posted .

    "Resident Evil with samurais" was probably the most common description for the Onimusha series. Like its sister series, Onimusha featured bygone gaming designs like fixed-camera angles, pre-rendered backgrounds, and tank controls. Capcom married these three elements into many of their games, creating fantastic and epic titles that still hold up today. While newer gamers may take some time getting used to these design choices, veteran players will feel very familiar with the setup and find their groove as they hack and slash the demonic hordes in this feudal era-inspired action-horror. Everything has been given a nice HD touch, though this does reveal some glaring graphical limitations, but the aim is to present the game in a perfected format rather than achieving the fidelity of modern-day titles. The biggest change however comes in the music, which has been remade from the ground up due to events concerning the original chief musician for the game. However, the new soundtrack remains largely faithful to the feel of the original, and the original sound effects are still present and accounted for. The Trophy/Honors the game now boast will surely challenge old and new players to put their skills to the test. Here's hoping Capcom brings the series back to life with a new installment.

    Onimusha is a fantastic game, that and the price of this are the primary reasons I am giving it 5 stars. If you never played Onimusha before it is well worth it. Having said that it is a bit disappointing that the only thing done was the HD remaster but the biggest disappointment is this is a remaster of the PS2 versions instead of the version on Xbox called Genma Onimusha which included addition content. While I still enjoyed my time with this I do prefer Genma more as it adds to the story. I do still recommend this as is as it is a fantastic game and hope for a full on remake someday!

    Dated, but Fun! Classic Samurai Action Game.

    Item details: Game is in a standard PS4 case, no paper inserts. Just one disc--pretty much uses the same PS2 cover layout, the difference being the text on the back. Don't expect something glamorous for this remastered version, because Onimusha Warlords is not that kind of remaster. Onimusha is one of those Capcom franchises that kinda disappeared between the PS2 and PS4, presumably forgotten to more popular IPs. For a remastered PS2 game, the mechanics work pretty well for the PS4 now that they've added analog stick support (so goodbye to the ever-dreaded 'Tank Controls'). The game still has the pre-rendered backgrounds, so your main character will definitely stand out from it. The story is also the typical 'save the princess' plot. Also note, it's a pretty short game even for an average playthrough--you'll more than likely clock in at 5 hours or less. That's 5 for the casual gamer, and 3 and under for the more experienced ones. As far as specials or new additions to this game go, there are none. This is pretty barebones. If there was one downside, I'd say the initial pricing of 19.99 is questionable if you're not a big fan of Onimusha. So, if that's the case--I'd recommend a price drop below $15 or even $10. If you're looking for a samurai/zombie fix for a couple of hours, this is definitely your game.

    This is a remaster of the Original onimusha warlods game from 2001, this game was originally for the PS2 and has been given an HD touch up for the ps4. the game looks a bit better but the main difference is zero loading times and smoother controls.

    i loved playing all of the onimusha series when they originally released and greatly enjoyed playing through this one again. it holds up surprisingly well and makes me wonder why capcom has decided to give up on this ip. maybe one day they'll do something with it or at least remaster the rest of the series...

    Stands the test of time

    For a game that originally came out 18 years ago this holds up surprisingly well. From cleaned up visuals to tighter controls (the old RE tank controls are gone.) this game is just as great now as when it first came out. Everything from soul collecting to power up your weapons to puzzles to boss fights are as fun as ever. And at the $19.99 price point this is a must buy. Hopefully it sells well so Capcom decides to make a new game in the series. And who knows maybe we'll see Dino Crisis get a remaster soon as well...

    A classic brought forward to a new generation

    Do you like Resident Evil? Do you also happen to like Samurai’s or feudal Japan era? If yes then you will absolutely love this game. One of favorite games from the PS2 era of gaming is now available during the PS4’s life cycle. However with that being said this isn’t a remake but more of a remaster. The game was touched up to inline with current HD consoles but the game will definitely show its age. Speaking of age this plays like classic Resident Evil as in there are tank controls and fixed camera angles. Now if you’ll enjoy those quirks is entirely up to you but it does show you when this game and era it was made in. This game has its charm and I recommend it to anybody. I had fond memories of this game as I’ve gotten older and it was a pleasure to play through again.

    Overlooked Previous-Gen Action Game

    |
    Posted .

    Onimusha: Warlords was released nearly two decades ago on the PlayStation 2 in 2001 (and later the original Xbox in 2002.) This is a game that received little fan fare and press. This remaster is the same game that came out 20 years ago, which modern graphics and settings. If you missed this title back then, don't miss this title now. Onimusha: Warlords is worth every bit of your time. (I purchased both XBOX One and PS4 copies, and am reusing the review I wrote for the other platform on this.)

    It's just like you remember

    The main reason why I'm giving this 5 stars is because onimusha IS a great game, it was great back then and its great now. Yes it's just a "lazy" HD port but it's also a $20 game. the analog controls in my opinion, was done better than some of the other HD ports. take RE zero for example. Original controls made the game unplayable but alternate wasn't as good as the analog controls here, of course that could be just me, some people play these games on PC using a keyboard and mouse. Digressions aside If you have 20 bucks then you give it a try. I'm hoping that it does well enough so that we can see the other two games in the series get a release as well ( however a true remake of part 3 would be amazing )

    A PS2 Classic, Surprisingly Holds Up

    |
    Posted .

    This game is pretty much a port of the PS2 version with improved (often simply upconverted) texture work, an HD presentation, and no other significant changes. The game seems to be bug free and plays as well as it did 10+ years ago. The original was a classic, though if you haven't played it before, this game will probably feel a bit stiff and dated in terms of controls and general game mechanics.

    An excellent version of the game which greatly reduces the loadtimes, introduces an alternative control scheme to tank mechanics, and makes a classic game look the best it has in years.

    Onimusha was one of my favorite games on the PS2. I'm happy it's been remastered on the PS4 so that a new generation can experience it! I hope the other 3 games in the series eventually get remastered as well!

    a fantastic game and an decent HD port

    The big thing to know is this is a great game, one of the best PS2 game and certainly one of the more interesting "almost was Resident Evil" games Capcom has made. The only downside is the graphics do show their age and even though remastered the early PS2 models show their age worse then other games from the era, it also would have been a serious plus if the Xbox Genma Onimusha content was included here but sadly its not. Still definitely check this out

    If you're a fan of the first 3 Resident Evil games you'll feel right at home with Onimusha. The game uses the same fixed camera angles, map layout and puzzles. The key difference is the more dynamic combat. You get different weapons and special abilities that keep the combat fresh.

    This is probably my favorite PS2 game and revisiting it was a blast. It was nice to use slightly updated controls and that it has widescreen support. For those that have never played this game, it’s been updated not entirely rebuilt. The cutscenes are very dated and the game does show its age but it’s also a ton of fun. So glad I got to play it once again.

    Classic

    This is basically a samurai game with the visual style of the original resident evil games on PS1. it's not a very long game but the price is fair. Just don't go in expecting a full remake. It's the original game in high definition. That isn't a bad thing.

    I played this game starting on it's initial release back in the ps2 days. It's still a timeless classic. Graphics have been touched well, as well as an old ps2 game can be really. The controls are no longer tank style, unless you want them to be in the options. Definitely recommend playing this game again, or as your first time. Enjoy the resident evil style version of the Samurai.
