Musashi: Samurai Legend
The most Under-Rated game Ever
Any of you guys remember Square Enix's Musashi: Samurai Legend for the PS2? It was released about 3 years ago and was a successor to the PlayStation classic Brave Fencer Musashi. All you really need to know in terms of plot is that a swordsman by the name of Musashi is summoned to an other dimension to save the princess of that world. The game play is essentially a hack-and-slash game with a bit of RPG blended in. The Graphics are beautifully cell-shaded. The music is great. The voice acting is a tad crappy. Now, the reason I made this review is because 3 years ago I wanted this game. But everyone I knew and all these reviews told me not to get it. I wanted to rent it, but no store had it for rent. Soon after I completely forgot about it. Then about a week ago, one of my friends in my computer class was emulating Brave Fencer Musashi. So after seeing this I decided to get a copy of Musashi: Samurai Legend at my local GameStop.
Pros and Cons
Challenges: well this game is pretty hard since for most of the quest you really have to seach the field and area to find little people who ecapes in tiny blue capsaules to save themselves from an evil force. Im so sorry i forgot the main evil bosses name. Contiueing, most of the quest you wont be able to receive until you find and free most of the people from their capsaules so be on the look out. the bosses take some time to beat so this isnt the type of game you wanna just play befor you leave. The levels are pretty inteses and kinda hard even on easy. Controls: The controls are pretty easy except 1 thing when you change your sword and your equip special moves you stop completely and you can get attacked which kinda sucks. Lenghth and Storyline: This is a pretty long game it has 5-6 chapters I believe, which consist of say 3-4 parts in each chapter even though the princess you have to save is kidnapped constanly she never stays. What has happend is that a princess named mycella i believe it was sorry i havent played in a bit but either way she summons you help save her and the maidens of 5 elements ; earth, water, fire, wind, and void which i believe is suppose to be darkness. Most of the people in the story you have to rescue from capsaules and they give u missions. Animation: Not much to say the animation isnt really tht great maybe because its from 3 years ago Sound: The sound is pretty cappy because their voices dont really match the mouths and there faces dont change much at all they dont have to many facial features.
