Muramasa: The Demon Blade

 

One of the most beautiful games ever created. Developer Vanillaware has become known for their vibrant art style and affection for old-school design. Muramasa: The Demon Blade is the latest...

Lush and gorgoues visuals ; Top-tier animation ; Simplistic, yet deep combat ; Outrageous boss characters

Can be a bit linear ; Sword selection becomes a palette swap

Muramasa: The Demon Blade [Wii]

 

I've been getting a lot of use out of my Wii lately; it seems that a collection of noticeable titles are really hitting the console in stride. Although as most Wii owners will know, the best games on the console outside of the big N's own publishing...

Possibly one of the best looking games this generation ; Atmosphere is sublime ; Combat is fast, highly difficult and extremely fluid and fun ; Storyline is very interesting and presented well

Combat can get a bit tierd by the end ; Boss battles sometimes last too long ; Most areas feel somewhat deserted ; Storyline can be confusing and not told as well as it should be

Muramasa is the pinnacle of 2D gaming this generation. Despite a few flaws with story telling, and a somewhat repetitive gameplay narrative the title is one of the most well rounded packages on the Wii.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade - Wii review at Thunderbolt Games

 

It's hard to say which of Muramasa's protagonists has it worse. Princess Momohime is possessed by a sociopathic demon spirit. She might look innocent, but there's a murderous fiend controlling her every move. All Momohime can do is watch helplessly as...

Muramasa: The Demon Blade

 

one of the best third party titles on the Wii.

My only real issue from the game came from the controls, which are pretty well done, but I had a hard time getting used to the somewhat flighty jumps of both characters. They seem to be particularly light, and while most fights have you confined to a...

Muramasa: The Demon Blade

 

Traversing Japan, one sexy fox lady at a time.

I loved Muramasa. I get that its mostly surface and can be dominated by agressively mashy players, but what's wrong with that? Levels are gorgeous, but aren't very inventive. Rooms are big squares, and you move either right or left while looking for...

Muramasa: The Demon Blade

 

Development studio Vanillaware doesn't make many games, but the ones they do are always great. Odin Sphere and GrimGrimoire were the highlights of the PS2's twilight years, ensuring that I dragged that console out for a few more sessions. The studio...

Beautiful graphics + Great controls + Lots of replay value

Some of the visual effects are distracting

Muramasa is the kind of title that needs to get in front of most players. It show exactly how much can be wrangled out of old design styles, and offers a great story. This has the quality of a good manga epic, and there is enough value to bring you...

Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Wii) Review

 

Can a game set in Japanese legends really go wrong?

Although I enjoyed parts of this game, it's not one I can recommend with no qualification. There are parts of the game that will make you turn it off and leave it alone for a few days, like when you go into a boss fight while being totally unequipped,...

Review: Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Nintendo Wii)

 

A few years ago the team of Vanilla Ware shocked the gaming world by releasing a beautiful 2D action RPG known as Odin Sphere and the 2D RTS Grim Grimoire. While each of these games had different issues that kept them from being amazing games, the one...

Muramasa: The Demon Blade is a visually stunning game, with a great art style that influences everything in the game. The controls work perfectly, but while the battles are stylish and smooth, they aren’t as engaging as you might hope they would be. ...

Muramasa: The Demon Blade

 

Unsheathing one of the cursed blades forged by the legendary swordsmith Muramasa often results in nothing but sorrow for the unfortunate wielder. Such is the case for both Kisuke and Momohime, the dual protagonists in Muramasa: the Demon Blade....

Review: Muramasa: The Demon Blade for Nintendo Wii

 

Muramasa: The Demon Blade is a beautifully-constructed 2D side-scrolling action game for the Nintendo Wii. One can't describe a game like that without mentioning the fantastic PS2 title Odin Sphere, so be sure to get up to speed on that game as it is...
