Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers could have been a decent Devil May Cry-type action game, but it's hampered by lazy design and poor control choices across the board. Basically, you choose one of 2 scantily-clad women and slash through dozens of generic zombies and monsters in extremely sparse levels. Your main attacks require you to shake the remote continuously, which is pretty annoying. On top of that, the secondary combo attacks that allow you to slash in different directions can be hard to execute due to all the rampant waggling required. The repetitive gameplay and ho-hum levels wear thin quickly, and the bosses are just recycled versions of the player characters. Story mode is a drab affair, featuring virtually no production value--just some text rising on a dark backround with Japanese voice before each level. There are 2 additional characters and a few alternate outfits to unlock, but it's not enough to make you keep coming back. Once you get used to the weird controls, it's mildly fun to slash the rooms full of enemies and see how long of a combo you can string together, but that's about all the enjoyment you'll likely get out of this one.
