Rated 1 out of 10 by igotchopstixz bad and boring
What the headline says. Way Of The Samurai 2 is way different from Way of the Samurai 1. They're also different game companies. The game starts out with rescuing some girl. The characters can talk and they talk very bad. The way they talk in English is very terrible. The people there is really different. A very hard story to follow. When you join a clan, they tell you to meet somewhere and what time, but they don't even show up. There's alot of cutscenes that bug me so much. You'll be lucky if you dont see a cutscene within 5minutes. I only bought this game because I loved Way of the Samurai 1, and thought it would be the same, but it was really different and I regret buying the game.The game is really confusing and hard. But don't take my word for it. If you still want to try it, go ahead (:
Rated 10 out of 10 by Mo3 If you liked the first one...
Personally I LOVED the first one and this is more of the same stuff as the first one with the fighting, controls, graphics and the way you can choose whichever ending you want. Your character starts out before where the first one starts since there is still samurai and the Meiji era and you can choose a few endings with the Aoto gang, magistrates, the townspeople or you can be a lone samurai. You can also take jobs in which you can earn money from to buy things if you wish. Wandering through Amahara you pick the occational fight unless you are continuing on with your story and there are cutscenes. Oh and the reason the price is higher than the 1st one is because there was fewer made of this one. So if you loved the 1st one you'll love this.
Rated 10 out of 10 by shadowcat8 Awesome game. loved it.
If you liked the first one you'll love this one. A ton of different endings. It's kind of a quick game but more characters you can unlock and clothing options. You can do whatever you want like kill people, join a gang or group, steal from merchants even. the game doesn't get old. somethings may get repetative after a while but just change whatever you want to do like a killing rampage. it's kinda fun. find a walkthrough online and it should tell you how to get different endings or how to make a more powerful sword and how to find a good one.
