Found this neat mod while looking for a widescreen fix for: Oni: Anniversary Edition. It provides fixes for the original game and nice inteface for downloading and installing mods. There's lots of great stuff, from re-textures to new combat scenarios.

Granted I have a lot of nostalgia for this game but it's still great fun, the melee combat is surprisingly deep. It does show its age in some spots, e.g. no manual saving coupled with checkpoints that are spaced way too far apart. The enemies wielding ranged weapons also have a tendency to gang up on you.

Also, some of the dialogue is hilarious. Enter the deadly brain!

I remember trying to trade this game in a long ass time ago and they wouldn't give me anything at all for it. Or maybe it was a dollar? Iunno.

I should probably try this game out again at some point just to see if I'm any better at it. :P

I actually have a copy of this somewhere and never played it. It's probably the oldest game I have that I haven't played. I bet it hasn't aged well at all.

Oh man I loved project Oni. When you got used to the controls it was amazing.

I've actually spent most of the day playing this (home sick from work)
If you have zero nostalgia for it I think you're right. There is some merit to the combat but you have to deal with a lot of archaic design to get to it.

I hope have my old copy laying around somewhere... This seems like a perfect excuse to give it another go.

I hated this game on the PS2. Still played tens of hours as it was the only game I had when I got my console.

I was one of those weird people who didn't hate Oni. I think it was mostly due to playing it on a PC and it ran smoothly and cleanly.
