It may not have been too long. It may have had it's problems. It may have been really weird...but I loved this game (and the sequel too). I found the fighting to be pretty fun and varied enough and I found the interaction of the story was well planned out too. I really hope the third game comes to the states and I wonder if there really is going to be a "Way of the Samurai Online" for the 360...hmmm.
Does Anyone Else Love This Game?
YES! This game was great. I love the Movie Yojimbo, which this was VERY closely based off of, barring the afro-samurai, Don. The concept of a Ronin coming into a town and effecting the lives of all these people, plus the rival gangs. It was very well done on a limited budget, I think. Also, i didn't know there was a third even made. Gonna have to check that out now!
"One of my favorite PS2 games of all time. I played this soooo much when I was a bit younger."Well it seems that most people aren't fans (or don't know what this series is...) since it took a month & one week to get a 4th fan! :P ...I'm jealous of JPN since Way of the Samurai 3 just came out over there and hit the charts at #2 for its debut week, not too bad. :)
"I really liked it too. And even the sequel, which it seems like even fans of the first hated. Too bad it's over too soon, and I'm not much into gathering every single sword in the world."I actually really liked to sequel as well and I'm really looking forward to #3 ...if it gets released in the US of course.
I never checked it out, so its only a rough idea, but I think some of the Capcom people involved in WotS-2 might have gone on to be part of the team who made Dead Rising. Would make sense from the similar timeline gameplay system. Can only hope it gets used more to add variety to games.
Always had a laugh nicking that waving cat thing from outside the restaurant. (Don't point out what it actually is, I have been to Japan and know)
My best friend, brother and I used to play it several times in a row trying a different path each time, always was a good time.
I would totally approve of more games like that, short games with lots of different paths (certainly better than the recent trend of short games with one path).
Only game I can honestly go back and replay over and over and over again. There's so many endings, and some you definitely had to look at a FAQ to get. Awesome system of keeping rare swords.
Couldn't really get into the 2nd one for whatever reason. I recognize it as better, but it didn't capture me as much. I think I only beat it once. The first one I must have beat like 40+ times.
Gotta give WOTS 3 a look. Didn't hear to much on it honestly. But then WOTS 1 got really mediocre scores and I loved it.
