Some games can survive feeling about 10 years out of date. Way of the Samurai 3 kind of, almost, maybe pulls it off. Sometimes.

Cut your own path in this unique but repetitive samurai adventure.

Interesting cause-and-effect mechanic ; Intriguing plot lines ; Multiple endings and a slew of unlockables ; Cool character design options

Repetitive, finicky combat ; Irksome camera ; Significant slowdown ; Low quest variety and limited exploration ; Very exacting

Way of the Samurai has been one of the more interesting franchises this decade. The third installment in the series follows the same principle: you play a Samurai ancient Japan, during a time where different groups and clans are at war, and you don't...

Way of the Samurai 3 is a game about choice. You play as a samurai caught in the middle of a war. You are found after a brutal battle by some local farmers and from that point on, every decision you make has the potential to butterfly into large, game...

Consequences is the central theme in Samurai 3. You are not bound by any rules or an invisible hand of the developer leading you to the game's planned conclusion. If you want to start off by acting like a samurai bound by honor and respect for your...

The idea is ambitious. However, the scope is limited. The playthroughs don't last that long, and the section of Japan you reside in isn't that large. There are under 10 parts to the map you explore. In a short time, everything will start to feel...

You have to really be in love with the central design concept Samurai 3 is built on to appreciate what this game is and isn't. If you aren't sold on having your choices carry with you for the rest of the game, this game is likely going to collect dust...

Way Of The Samurai 3

 

The Way Of The Samurai series kicked off its console life on the PlayStation 2 back in 2002. This was swiftly followed by a sequel in 2004 and we have had to wait six whole years for the next instalment and with it, the series' first appearance on...

Bearable if you have played the series before ; Use of choices

No structure ; No tutorials ; Poor dialect ; Heavy assumption of previous experience

Way Of The Samurai 3 could have been better with at least some degree of guidance. There is a clear reliance on having played at least one of the previous games in the series which, considering the new generation of gamers that has been amassed since...

I am a fan of this trilogy cant say im not and have always liked the depth of play involved with the previous titles. However i just couldnt seem to get my head around this one. Without a manual i felt i missed 90% of the game as so many aspects of...

True Samurai action

 

This game is very close to reality when it comes to sword fighting. The moves are realistic and not surrealistic like other samurai games. The only thing that reaaally bothered me was that when you get hit you die and the game starts from the start. As...

OMG wot a load of s**t!!! The start is awful, the game play is awful, when you save it kicks you out of the game and you have to start all over again. A complete waste of half and hour, rubbish
