Muramasa: The Demon Blade Wii Review

 

Can style and substance coexist together in a balanced relationship? Or does one side slip a little whilst the other takes all the glory? It can be pretty difficult to gain a balance between the two but when you do, fantastic things happen. The good...

Beautiful to look at ; Music is done nicely ; Fights are fun and fluid with an interesting twist

Repetitive gameplay ; Both storys are completable in 10 hours ; Recycled Backdrops make moving through the worlds tedious ; Confusing story

Muramasa: The Demon Blade (2009)

 

What manner of magic is this – a Wii game that doesn’t involve flipping burgers, hurling hoops or shaking a monkey’s maracas? But while it’s true that Nintendo’s box of delights finally has a game for hardcore players to get their teeth into,...

Muramasa: The Demon Blade (Wii) review

 

Sheer Art Attack...

In an age where choice of avatar often means nothing more than trivial personalisation, it’s great to see a game like Muramasa come along and use that choice to offer twice as much game, with enough unique content to justify both play-throughs. It’s a...

Muramasa: The Demon Blade

 

Vanillaware's lush and layered visuals and the game's razor-sharp combat elevate Muramasa well beyond your average brawler.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade

 

This 2D hack-and-slash adventure lacks depth, but the striking backgrounds make it easy to get sucked into its world.

Gorgeous backgrounds ; Intense boss battles ; Lots of swords to collect

Combat lacks depth ; Not much to do outside of combat

Muramasa: The Demon Blade [Wii] Review

 

Hand-drawn by the creators of Odin Sphere.

Stunning visuals; Arcade-style fighting; Solid RPG elements serves as a good backbone; Excellent sound design (Japanese voice-acting/soundtrack)

Back-tracking could have been designed better; Gameplay is slightly repetitive

Muramasa: The Demon Blade Review

 

Featuring ninjas and swords galore Muramasa has all of the tools to be a recipe for success.

Nice presentation and sound ; Excellent amount of swords available ; Utilises the classic control system well

Pretty shallow gameplay ; Character animation could be better ; No mutliplayer

"Muramasa The Demon Blade" is one of those games which looks great but is let down by some uninspiring gameplay. At first I was pretty impressed with the overall game and in particular the fact that it had a nice retro feel and did not try to utilise...

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...
