As power-hungry warlords battle one another for control of feudal Japan, a young princess is kidnapped. Now, one lone swordsman, Samanosuke, boldly volunteers to rescue and avenge her. An entire legion of demon warriors stands between you and the princess, so you'll need all your weapons and magic to break through.
The world of Onimusha: Warlords comes alive with waterfalls, wind effects, insects, and weather, but in order to triumph, you must stay focused on your mission.
A short but sweet gem of a game dusted off and polished by Capcom for a quick nostalgia trip. Visual and auditory upgrades make this the definitive version of Onimusha: Warlords, but nothing can hide the game’s aging design.
While control issues still hamper Onimusha: Warlords Remastered, the game looks and runs better than ever, and the hard-hitting combat keep it fun and exciting throughout.
A fun relic of the early PS2 days that I still like a lot, but slightly too dated for most players to enjoy.
I definitely had fun with Onimusha: Warlords, despite many of its mechanics and visuals aging poorly since 2001. A lot of my enjoyment comes from revisiting an old favorite, but there's not enough new stuff here to recommend this to someone new to the series. The save system, terrible animations, and unskippable cutscenes just don't work in the modern era. It's a shame, because Onimusha is one of my favorite PS2 games, and just a few tweaks to some of the older systems would have helped enormously. The modern release is exactly how I remember it, and unfortunately in 2019, that's just not good enough.
Onimusha: Warlords is a lazy remaster of an honourable but anachronistic video game. The new control system is a nice addition but we simply expected something more.
