Released during the early stages of the PS3, Genji: Days of the Blade is a pretty solid game. The story follows a warrior named Yoshitsune and his band of friends Shizuka, Benkei and a revived soul named Lord Buson. Each of these warriors have a weapon in which they specialize in; Yoshitsune carries two samurai swords, Shizuka wields a whip, Benkei heaves a giant club, and Lord Buson basically carries a double ended spear.Through out the game, you can upgrade your weapons by using jewels called Amahagane, which also can be used to increase you Kumai gauge (A gauge which allows special attacks to be performed) at anytime your gauge is full.The plot of the story involves the characters mentioned above, fighting demonic warriors from the underworld called the Heishi. These warriors are led by a mysterious old woman, with evil intentions as you dwell deeper into the game. After playing through this game, I have encountered a vast amount of awesome videos and gameplay as I ventured through the many lands provided in this feudal era, but there has been issues. One of the problems that you may encounter while playing this game is the camera. At certain points in the game, it feels like the camera is more of your enemy then the enemies you encounter.Another problem for some gamers maybe the barrage of enemies that happen to appear on the screen. Through out the stages, Heishi warriors will come by the dozen to take you down and fellow comrades, and for some stages this maybe difficult to handle, so be prepared to take quite a few hits.Graphics wise, Genji:Days of the Blade has cinemas that look like PS3 potential but when it comes to in-game graphics, they still look like PS2 quality graphics. Overall this game has the recipe of a good game, but falls short of being an excellent one.
yes: I recommend this product
