Rated 10 out of 10 by Gannan the Viking Chef History is fun!
Kengo:Legend of the 9 is a fun and challenging swordfighting game loosely based on the battle history of 9 of the most famous warriors in Japanese history.The warriors are Miyamoto Musashi, Okita Soji, Sakamoto Ryoma, Jubei Yagyu, Sasaki Kojiro, Chiba Sanako, Ito Itossai and 2 others that i can't remember...Anyway, the main mode is a story mode where you play through each character's 9-level battle history, hacking up swarms of enemies.At the end of each level, you fight one-on-one with one of the characters you're not currently playing as.Keep in mind, when you first start story mode only Musashi, Soji and Ryoma are playable.There's also a mission mode which puts you through various timed challenges.Each warrior has a different style of fighting which ensures a constant challenge.All in all, this is a great game.I highly recommend it!
Rated 3 out of 10 by NevadaDesert Not worth it at all.
I just bought this game and I thought I would give it a try.
After playing the game I can't get past the first chapter and its impossible to figure out what I'm doing because it has no training/tutorial or even a button layout settings.
I am a experienced gamer and I've had my fair share of bad games but this game is so bad I had to make a review about how bad this game is.
I would only recommend this game to someone that has the change for this game and is willing to sit there and die and die and die, OVER AND OVER!
I picked the first samurai and then the others and its the same thing you hack and slash with the B and Y button then when the boss comes there is technical moves that you need to do and you don't know what your doing because it doesn't tell you.
I am returning this game for my money back even if its only $3.00!
Rated 9 out of 10 by knightofs not a button smasher
I was looking at the sales crate thingy and though all the sports plain weird games i found this and decided to give it a try. This game is really challenging master swordsmen are really, well, masterful. I love how you can have the ability to kill a boos with one kill, if you have to skill. unlike in the past where nearly all melee based games have been "a a a" this one is different., you have to use different approaches for different opponents. the controls are easy to use. unlockables were a disappointment because all you can unlock are other samurais so you cant buy new swords. The best part is the storyline, each character has a unique story of there own,there are nine charecters in all, making the game a good 75 hours or longer.

Stop complaining about the graphics like an idiot. You are not more sophisticated than the rest of us because you have a keen eye for the obvious. The gameplay looks like a lot of fun based on what I've seen at gametrailers.com. It's very technical and it doesn't look like a mere button masher. It's still a fighting game but it's very realistic as far as the moves are concerned, they look authentic. Of course, in real life, nobody can take repeated samurai sword slashes and continue fighting, but this is a game after all. It is possible though, to score one-hit kills depending on the context.
Rated 0 out of 10 by medekai Another Kengo hmm.....
I owned the original for PS2 and it had its good points. The best being the epic control and ease of swordfighting. The swordfights were a thing of beauty. In this latest incarnation, I look forward to the same wicked swordplay as in the previous installment, however the graphics are looking EXTREMELY weak. Looks like they kept the character models from the original! I really hope they polish those up a bit before release (can you say "dated?"). But looks like it could be great, and I look forward to slinging some more swords!
Rated 9 out of 10 by Attackface Realistic themes!
I have enjoyed this game more than other fighting games, mainly because it is designed more as a simulator instead of a game. I always enjoy simulator style games rather than more fictitious games, so if your looking for a traditional Japanese sword fighting game, I would get this one. If you only want a game based on purely the gaming elements, I am not an avid enough gamer to comment on this.

I played kengo for the Ps2 and man was it sweet the sword play way more realistic then any other game I played before and I played over 200 games for the Ps2 and now that I found out the forth the Kengo game is coming to the U.S I just cant stop thinking about the hours and even days of time I will put in to playing Kengo Legend of the 9 when it comes out.
Rated 0 out of 10 by MrBoNeZ No wonder the price is low.
Bottom line is that if they (game company) don't spend time and money on this game than why should us, the consumer? It looks rushed and horribly made. I have seen practice projects done by college studants that put this to shame. I love these kinds of games but OOOOOO does this suck.

I saw this game a long time ago when it released in Japan as Kengo Zero and i really wanted to try it out. The visuals werent that great but the 40 dollar price makes up for that along with the story of each swordsman

To me this looks like another Tenchu type game only this time your Samurai. Graphics so far look high end ps2 and the story i think will be played out like tenchu. Ive been wrong before but this looks to dissapoint.
