Über das Spiel

The Way of the Samurai series is widely renowned for allowing players to make far-reaching decisions that can radically alter the course of the story and this, the fourth entry in this thrilling series and previously exclusive to the PS3, is no exception! Now all the sword wielding action, adventure and drama of the Way of the Samurai series comes to PC for the very first time, continuing the series’ blend of customization, exploration, action gameplay and quirky humour.

Way of the Samurai 4 takes place in the humble port town of Amihama during the mid 19th Century, several years after the arrival of the “black ships” from the West ended Japan’s long history of cultural isolation. Amihama’s downtown area has slowly been converted to a “Little Britain,” complete with European-styled buildings, occupied by an influx of adventurous foreign settlers. Not everyone welcomes these new residents though, and three distinct factions with opposing ideals begin to take shape.

You must take on the role of a master-less samurai looking to establish yourself in this conflicted land of opportunity and uncertainty. It is up to you to decide which faction to support in an almighty conflict amongst the region’s three powers, and so direct the course of Japan’s history.

Will you aid the shogunate pro-government in their attempts to keep the peace and establish cordial relations with the foreign contingent?

Will you help the nationalistic isolationists in their attempts to exile this potential threat to the Japanese way of life?

Or will you ally with the foreigners directed by the British Navy in their attempts to establish silk trade and foster cultural exchange?

Who will you support? Who will you betray? Become the ultimate bastion of virtue or the ultimate disgrace to humanity, and do it however you'd like. The choice is entirely your own...

Come join the denizens of this conflicted harbour and enjoy all the series staples you've come to expect from Way of the Samurai:

  • Branching storylines with multiple endings
  • Dynamic combat system
  • Vast array of melee and gunpowder weaponry
  • Extensive character customization
  • Key event decision making
  • Sword collecting
  • Original Japanese voiceover with English subtitles


This PC conversion also features a number of improvements over the original, ensuring that PC gamers receive the best gaming experience possible:

  • Improved user interface with both gamepad and keyboard support
  • 8 stunning Steam Trading Cards to collect!
  • Steam Achievements
  • Cloud Saves

Ich bin schon seit dem ersten Teil der Way of The Samurai Serie dabei, damals noch auf PS2.

Alle WoTS teile haben jede menge Endings und es gibt viele möglichkeiten sein Schwert zu verbessern.

Way of the Samurai 4 hat mir sehr gut gefallen, doch die Story war in diesem Teil leider nicht sehr gut.
Die Grafik ist nichts besonderes aber die vielen verschiedenen möglichkeiten (Fast jede Handlung verändert den Spielverlauf und auch das Ende) lassen dem Spieler freie Hand über die Zukunft des Protagonisten.

Spielspaß: 10/10
Möglichkeiten (freie Hand über den Verlauf des Spiels): 10/10
Grafik: 7/10 (ist ein von PS3/4 geportetes Spiel, dabei wurde leider nichts aufgebessert)
Sound: 9/10 (Passt alles ziemlich gut)

Alles in allem eine klare Kaufempfehlung!

Way of The Samurai ist ein Spiele-Reihe die ich seit meiner Kindheit gespielt und geliebt habe. Der vierte Teil ist wieder ein Stück besser als die Vorgänger, und genau das liebe ich so an dieser Spiele Reihe sie wird stetig überdacht verbessert und mit neuen Gameplay elementen verziert, bleibt sich aber trozdem seiner Traditionen Treu. Das kann man heute zu tage nicht von vielen Reihen behaupten. Also wer Japanisch angehaucht ist und sich für Samurais und bizarre gestalten interresiert wird hier bestens aufgehoben sein!

Deswegen von mir 10/10 Klare Kaufempfehlung für Neueinsteiger und für Fans der ersten 3 Teile

My childhood has been relived I FUCKING LOVE IT YES GET GAME. The characters are all unique and all around great fun to interact with (especially Moro, J.J. and Kogure) and the different story lines are amazing. The side quest are all fun but the dojo challenging can get a little annoying sometimes, like going in beating the challenger then leaving and then having to fight another over and over but still fun. The random A.I. interactions on the street is also quite fun too sit back and watch. The different amounts of stances and weapons just adds to the fun as well. All around great game and if you like samurai games this game should be on your wishlish or in your library.

One of the coolest Japanese games that will tell about the life of samurai in the middle of the 19th century.The game is not very famous but very interesting. In fact, this is a cool action movie about samurai in the style of GTA but with RPG elements and a non-linear plot where the plot develops depending on your actions.Killing one person can change the whole story to the root.Even if you did not help someone or did not find the quest on time, the plot of the game begins to change.I think it's pretty cool.The game has 11 styles of sword fighting and 3 spears. The player himself decides which one to choose, the style can be changed at any time, you just need to go to the dojo.You can even play with Shinobi(忍者) style by choosing the right sword school.You can create your own style by choosing the tricks you need.The game has 3 types of swords, katana -刀 , wakizashi - 脇差 and nodati - ノダティ as well as knives.The plot of the game takes place in 1855, 13 before the start of the civil war between the army of the emperor and the Tokugawa shogunate.The game has a lot of humor and funny moments.
You play for ronin who arrives in the city of Amihima in search of a better fate, but at the beginning of the game we are already forced to take part in the battle between the British ambassador and the samurai who advocate the return of the isolation regime.As I wrote above, the plot is changing and everything will depend on your actions, no matter which side you choose, the end will be one of 10.The game is very good

I love this game, but It is broken AF for the PC. The game crashes frequently and it has an old school saving system where you have to go to a person to save the game. It might have been easier to handle if there was an auto save feature, but I didn't want save after every 5 minutes of game play. Try to find a way to play on a home console because this will drive you insane.

I found this game by searching the word 'samurai' on a whim to see what would come up and have never been so happy at uncovering a hidden gem in my life.

Maybe it's just the unapologetic Bakumatsu fan inside of me that finds the ridiculous characters in this to be representative of different groups and factions during the events that lead up to the Boshin War, but I found the story to be really engaging and fast paced as a result. It's got its weird bits, but they're not weird in a way that's off putting and instead end up being humorous ... Like the Sadomasochistic family of Shogunate Officials and a Duke with a gambling addiction that may one day long to be a Sushi chef.

The combat system is incredibly deep, there are plenty of character customization options available to you once you unlock them, and you can climb the ranks of difficulty with each subsequent playthrough ... Which this game absolutely requires, considering the branching storyline and multiple endings. My only complaints about this are that the TRUE ending is extremely difficult to find without a guide of any kind, though you might be able to stumble onto it by accident very early on in the game if lucky, and that it's harder than it should be to figure out how not to die at a certain section. However, experimentation will quickly allow you to overcome these obstacles.

If you're prepared for wacky hi-jinks that play a lot like a spaghetti western with a deep combat system or just really want to be a samurai, I recommend this game.

As a note, the DLC is also interesting, especially for people who may have played Way of the Samurai 3 or have a particular interest in the Bakumatsu.

I'll be honest, seeing the Shinsengumi DLC was about 50% of the reason that I initially made this purchase and it did not disappoint in the slightest. Though it may just be two added assassination missions, they chose the perfect members of the Shinsengumi and their dialogue absolutely delighted me ... Especially because it gave me the ability to walk around the city as Kondo and Hijikata. Hijikata, in particular, has a pretty funny flirt for Nightcrawling if you choose to play as his model. Though the weapons they give you are a bit game breaking in some respects (and they d*mn well should be, frankly), the battles themselves are challenging and satisfying and their dialogue made references to enough of their real life eccentricities that it warmed my cold, Shinsengumi loving heart.

I encourage you to experience it for yourself, especially if you have an unadulterated love of the samurai in blue.

It WAS a good game.. back to when I bought it.

But nowadays this game won't run anymore due to problems with the nvidia physx drivers. Even re-installing the old legacy files and trying out all the fixes that worked for everyone a year ago. It seems that those fixes don't work anymore as well, at least for me. So to be honest, let's stick to WotS3, because that still works for me.

Pretty wacky game like the Yakuza series, but with samurais obviously. Lots of replayability due to multiple routes with completely different endings, depending on where you go, who you kill (or don't) and sometimes what you say, since dialog options are mostly stupidly silly just for laughs or sorta politically incorrect. You can beat up random people on the street till they decide to join your dojo and get armed, trained, OP and respected. There's also a shіtton of fighting styles, accessories and playable characters for you to roleplay with, if you're into that crap. Unfortunately, you can't play as Laura, but you can sleep with every single adult character in the game, male or female, friendly or foe, including Laura... So, enjoy the Way of the Samurai!

I absolutely love this game. I don't know what it is about it, but it's amazing to me.

I initially bought this game as a joke, expecting nothing but a worthless junk title for a little inside joke. Fortunately for me the game ended up being far better than I expected. I really do enjoy how short a play-through can be. The combat is extremely customizable and really enjoyable, and there's so many options to explore it's mind-blowing. The story isn't the best in the world by any means at all, but learning more through new play-throughs is a treat. For new players, I'd heavily suggest starting on the lowest difficulty available. I made the mistake of playing Normal, and getting my ass kicked cause I had no good weapon to work with. Although I was able to salvage it, it was far more difficult than I was expecting. All in all this has become a favorite title of mine in recent time. I'd recommend it if you're at all interested.

Work fine on windows 7.

Long story short WOTS 4 is a game where you are a samurai and you can do quiet a lot of stuff, many style to use, weapons, 4 difficulty setting (you start with easy and normal), I really enjoyed the story, granted you could complete an ending in less than 2 hours but since since there are like 15 endings or something you'll have your money worth, and if you want to get all achievements it will take you some time.

As a bonus if you are a disgaea fan and like to grind you can do stuff like have 9999 kill with a style, weapon, and such.

Could run the game flawlessly on windows 10 by activating compability mode with windows 7 and disabling fullscreen optimizations.

I loved this game and all the replayability it offers. The setting and how this world feels in general is a great time. There is some clunkiness here and there, specially in missions where you have to fight with a lot of people around you(cause you end up killing the wrong guys or even the person you are suppose to protect),but still this is a fun and great experience.

I have played all of the Way of the Samurai games and have always enjoyed them. This one is no different. Even though it can be a little silly at times the comedic aspects aren't unwelcome. If you like Choose your own adventure type games this could scratch that itch. It's not overly long to finish all of the endings but if you are a completionist then you'll have plenty to do. Overall I really enjoy this game and am very happy with my purchase.

There is a bit of a initial pain in setup, and some annoying issues to deal with.
Expect the following:
- Crash on changing resolution or fullscreen/ windows settings (these are saved so they work when you load the game back up)
- General issues that need windows 7 compatibility mode to fix
- Game won't launch after installing (just need to restart your machine and it will work)
- Crash if you tab out of the game in fullscreen (not found a fix yet)

Still, I played 8 hours in one day of getting this game, it's got really good legs and I found it very engaging, absolutely intend to play more of this game soon too.

the game is actually fairly short, playthroughs can be just a few hours when not rushing, but a lot of the value comes from the multiple branching paths, endings and player progression that carries over between playthroughs (able to keep unlocked cosmetics, weapons, fighting styles and their levels) so each playthrough also plays differently with being able to approach situations with new equipment and an expanded skillset.

Spoiler free. Don’t be fooled by my play time. This is a game you should play if you want to see the world from Japanese’s perspective, or want to understand their culture and how they view the world (The devs are Japaneses). The game’s atmosphere is unique and calm. Characters’ interactions are silly but fun. Combat is deep. (To Devs, please make Way of the Samurai 5)

Physx issue that has not been solved. I will not dial back on my drivers just to play this. I've tried everything other people have posted on the forums and discussion boards. Nothing works and many of us have this same issue.

I could play it before when I just bought it, played it a bit, had fun and then forgot about it because other games with friends, but then a couple of months back I decided to give it a try again and the game did not open. And I don't think it'll ever run again. If any of you can point me in a fix that is different to moving physx dlls around, compatibility mode, admin rights and what not I'd really appreciate it.

A significant improvement over its predecessor and the last installment in the series. I haven't finished this on PC so my review will be largely based on my experience playing it on the PS3. The game is set in Japan's period of modernization. The player can choose to side with one of three factions, namely the pro-government loyalists, the anti-western colonialist rebels or the British government.

Tons of customization options to choose from now. You can change the appearance of your character to resemble the wandering ronin of the classic Kurosawa film. A variety of straw hats that partially cover the face making the samurai look mysterious and formidable. There are over 90 swords, 12 spears, 5 firearms and several other miscellaneous weapons to collect. Players who've played the previous title no longer have to worry about swords breaking easily here. Weapon durability can simply be increased by using a whetstone. Rather than spamming the attack button, the combat system encourages the player to be more methodical and precise. You can learn a total of 50 sword styles using 7 different stances and they just personify the elegance and deadliness of bushido. Using Iaido for example lets the player perform a lightning fast and powerful horizontal cut. Basically the speed at which the sword is drawn and used to attack in one single stroke. Ninjutsu allows for more acrobatic maneuvres.

The proof of life system awards you points for committing acts befitting that of an honourable samurai. Acting like a common criminal will negate that but it doesn't necessarily have adverse impacts on your character. The game after all, encourages experimentation and there's no wrong way to play it. Upon reaching new game plus, the player can spend those honour points to unlock special clothing and accessories, which are separate from clothing sold in town. You'll find humorist elements particularly strong in this title and I must admit I was very much amused. A great mix of quirkiness and badassery overall.

Really good, a well-rounded samurai adventure. Having said that -

- The game sometimes crashes, often erasing save data with it.
- Music will cut out during fights, as well as random sound effects.
- The combat has a mechanic that, when left alone for about 10 seconds, enemies will regenerate health quickly, making every fight a DPS race. What's strange about this is the combat is often at it's best when it's a methodical duel, which the games movesets often encourage
- Dialogue can be a bit limiting, meaning changing alignments later on the game is incredibly difficult
- Your first playthrough is always the hardest, as the game has a system in which each playthrough you get better loot and money for the same tasks, meaning for your first you really have to make the most of every system, which aren't super well explained.

If you love the old way of the samurai games youll probably really enjoy this one. Its quite buggy and broken on windows 10 but still playable just dont alt tab.
Just dumped in 60 hours in the course of less than a week and im loving it. However, the gameplay loop has aged quite a bit and feels too grindy.

Theres no real crafting just a disassembling and creating aspect to making weapons with charms using a tic tac toe like matching system for said charms.
Once youre trying to get the best setup swords in the game it becomes very tedious. I spent the last 4 hours reloading saves and dismantling weapons to try and create 1 of 2 perfect weapons and ive got 3 non matching components i can use toward the sword i want. So worst case scenario i still need like 5 other components. I get maybe 1 of those components in about 20-40 mins of farming vendors. Needless to say im burning out and from what ive found this is still the most efficient method of doing this lol.

If you're looking for a thought-out, well-crafted simulation of life as a wandering samurai, this ain't it. Like anime fanfic that gained sentience and found its way into a liquor store, Way of the Samurai weaves gracelessly from one point to another, making a lot of noise and very little sense along the way. Surprisingly, though, it's these failings that make the game fun. The gameplay isn't particularly smooth, the story isn't entirely coherent, and the characters feel like they were written by a thirteen year old who recently discovered Samurai Champloo - but that's okay. This isn't a game for taking seriously, and once you've come to terms with that, there's a lot of fun to be had in living your best edgelord samurai life.

Tl;dr - This should have been called Edgy Anime Samurai Simulator, and if you're cool with that, you'll probably have fun.

this game is a fun time
has multiple endings giving it high replayablity
you can own a dojo and get pupils by beating the crap out of people
create your own fighting style
get tourtured by 3 kinky sisters
and most importantly of, all be in nothing but underwear because there is no armor to mitigate damage

I have a love hate relationship with this game.

This is the most comprehensive samurai sim on pc right now, but it is at the same time, a barely functioning relic that runs at 30 fps, suffer from constant bug, crashes, save file corruption, and have some of the most frustrating game mechanisms.

I also cannot forgive the dev for forfeiting a sequel because the sales and review of this pc port is not good due to poor optimization and bugs.

But in the end, this is a diamond in the rough and have plenty of stuff to enjoy, I really hope that one day this series gets the sequel and port it deserve on pc.

Huge game for me. Only 8 hours on Sam4 for steam but I've been playing this series since I was a kid. Kills me I cant get 1 and 2 which are the best IMO on PC. I can't really describe the game in words. All I can say is I've spent hundreds of hours on all 4 games and you can technically beat them in minutes. Combat is amazing and makes you feel skilled and bad ass. Its just extremely charming and a game I love and would love a reboot or some type of spiritual successor.

The game crashes after the title screen. It stops at a black screen and windows reports that the program has stopped responding. None of the fixes in the discussion forum on steam, GOG, or the PC Gaming wiki work.
I tried: run as admin, installing the specified direct x files, disabling full screen compatibility, windows 7 compatibility mode, various .ini settings as described by the developers, updating Nvidia drivers, update windows, restarting 5 times, installing phys x seperately, copying phys x dlls to the game folder, the Open SSL variable, checking data execution prevention, only running the game.
Short of reinstalling windows and rethinking all of my past life choices, I don't know what else to do. Maybe try a virtualbox installation if you want to run this game.

-Locked at 30FPS
-music doesn't loop
-absurdly long loading time/crash when starting a new game or getting into settings menu
-game is only somewhat stable when in window mode

Long time fan of the franchise, but this is a really bad port.
If you are okay with paying money to troubleshoot your game, this is for you.
I got it at 2.49 on sale and I'm still sour about it. It's not because of the money, it's because Ghostlight ruined a good game.

Very interesting game, its entirely built around doing multiple play throughs, even dozens or hundreds ultimately. I only have 13 hours, and have found 2 of what i can imagine are 20 or more endings. While the combat is a bit spammy and repetitive, it still isn't very easy. Sometimes you face a single very tough opponent, which is great. Other times though you fight an onslaught of 32 enemies that really isn't the most enjoyable. Regardless, during the time of this review the game is only $2.50, and even if it were 19.99 it would be well worth it even in 2021

The funky story, fun combat, meme-worthy faces, and the challenge in Hard & Harakiri will make you cry as much as Dark Souls.

With many fighting styles, weapons, factions, endings, outfits, and choices to make; Way of the Samurai 4 is a fun game that has a very high replay factor. The game isnt perfect, but its certainly worth playing till the end once at the least. I hope they end up making a 5th game.

I wondered if I should leave a negative review for this game, but in the end, I still found it to be moderately fun. I'd expect that quite a lot of people will simply hate it though, so think twice before buying it.
Maybe my memory has just become too cloudy. The only other Way of the Samurai that I played was 3, and I hold it in very high regard, despite probably not remembering it well. It was a terribly janky game, one that put you off right from the start and that nearly made me stop playing in the first hours. But after toughing it out, it appeared to me as a very unique, and in a sense amazing rough gem. What I remember particularly shocking to me was the fact that it was, in the truest sense, an RPG. Contrary to every other game's empty promises, here, you had true freedom over the story. You could kill anyone, and the world and story would deviate to accommodate that change. Decisions were not only made through textual choices, but also by your very actions as a player. By studying the various and simultaneous sequences of events that were playing out in the world, you could decide of where you want the story to head to, and the developers would have thought about it and rewarded you with an adequately modified story line.
Playing Way of the Samurai 4 made me seriously wonder if all of this was but a fleeting dream. Maybe my memories have become so embellished with time that they have no relation to reality anymore.
Anyway, Way of the Samurai 4, at least on the surface, seems to fit my memories of 3, but it suffers from huge problems. The story, characters and humor are so corny, so poor in terms of quality that it makes me want to shoot myself. Various sequences of events do play out simultaneously in the world and you can interfere with them, but that system seems crude and poorly thought out. You can only interfere through specific cut-scenes, and everything you can do is tied to that strict timetable system, that makes the promised freedom of the game feel more like a chore and ticking stuff off a to-do list. The battle system is of course just as janky as I remembered it to be...
In short, it really fell short of my expectations. That being said. I did play it to the end. I did mostly like it. So I believe I can still recommend it to you, as long as you can manage to keep your expectations in check.

Do you see all the women on the streets (minus grannies)? You should take your blade, flip it over so you're hitting with the dull side and beat them into submission. But isn't that a bit cruel? You ask. Well, no. What you're going to do, is to liberate them. You see, after they're on their knees, you DEMAND them to join your dojo. Why? Because they're the unmatched disciples of the blade and will lead your dojo to unmatched glory. The way things are, they won't get to realise their true potential. Help them, help you!

I'll start off with saying this is janky as hell. Enemies constantly spawn and I never really figured out what triggers some progressions during big fights like that. Music also just ends and doesn't loop making some long fights really awkward. Combat is also kinda janky and damage feels inconsistent. That being said, I did enjoy the game for the most part. It didn't hold my hand, and I needed to look into a few things about it which I liked. The characters were enjoyable, and there are so many paths for huge replayability even if each run will only be a few hours. The penultimate hidden ending was great too. I'm sort of mixed on recommending it, but I enjoyed enough of my time with Way of the Samurai 4 that I would recommend.

While the port is iffy at points, it's good to be able to play this game on PC. While the online features were removed, probably due to some issues relating to the blade creation aspect, the game still holds up despite the issues as a result of the port. An amazing experience of the samurai life in 1853 all around.

I've been a huge fan of the series, and I remember driving between multiple Electronics Boutique, Babbage's, and Gamestop locations trying to get my hands on a physical copy of the first one. Sadly, I was unable to play this one as it kept randomly crashing if I opened a menu, changed map locations, or changed the screen resolution. The crashing seems to be a common issue for some while a non issue for others.

Look through other reviews or look for a guide for any issues if you run into any gameplay-wise or the start-up issue people are having (I had it, but I had already looked into it and found the solution before the game was done downloading.) It's a good game, but seems to be getting bad reviews for a rather easily fixed error.

If you can look past all the jank, the game gives you a ton of customization options as you play (cosmetic, weapons and parts, styles, ect.) The combat can feel a bit off but if you take time to get use to it, it becomes better.

Cons:
- Game runs only at 30 fps.
- Doesn't support playstation button prompts.
- Engine tied to framerate. (30 fps)
- It randomly crashes when starting the game sometimes.
- highest available framerate is 30.
- The combat is clunky not only because of the low framerate

Pros:
+ The story is interesting
+ Tons of customization in terms of weapon/clothes/fightingstyles
+ The combat is satisfying once you get used to it

Slightly negative:
+ You're gonna have to play a lot of the same parts over and over again to see everything the game has to offer.

It's a niche game that is hard to get into and the port is below average at best.
I'm not going to lie, when I play games that don't reach 120 fps they feel laggy and choppy to me so it comes to a surprise to me that not only did I play the game, I beat it three times as of yet.
I only recommend it on a sale and if you know what you're getting into.

I both love and hate this game on one hand it's the best samurai sandbox game I've played yet with decent(ish) character customisation, a fair amount of sword fighting styles which you can even use to make your own, multiple endings, amusing events/quests, and sword smithing (more of a mix & match style of smithing) and on the other hand it's npcs cheat so much (mostly on harder difficulties) they'll just outright ignore the rules a lot of the time and pull bullsh*t one hit kill moves out of their arses much faster than you can, they act like they're already blocking while getting back up while also blocking attacks from behind and they recover from animations much quicker than you, one time during spring harvest i was wailing on one of them and it suddenly decided it would ignore my attacks via imitating a ragdoll from gmod and just skitzing the f*ck out all around me until it pulled an instant kill out of it's arse.
It's a good game that could've been great if it had more time spent on it.

Used to be one of my favorite games on PS3. However this port is straight garbage. It constantly crashes. Change resolution? Crash. Alt-tab? Crash. Walk away for too long? Crash. Go to options menu?... It doesn't crash but it literally takes takes 2 whole minutes (120 whole seconds) to open. Like how do you even manage that? Disappointing port.

I discover Way of the Samurai series by “accident” in 2002 when I was looking for a Ruroni Kenshin game (a version by Jack Sparrow for my defunct PS2) and the seller told me that this was a game based on the manga series since it even had the protagonist on the cover. It turned out to be a very different game that it doesn’t have anything to do with the series except MAYBE by the historical context…and now I’m thankful that I was scammed by that guy (sort of).

Way of the Samurai 4 is the last main installment of the series, originally release as a PS3 exclusive since this game wasn’t much popular to attain market interest back in the day, eventually a small developer named Ghostlight Inc. decided to port it over to PC making a decent port of it and allow more people to enjoy this flawed gem.

The premise is a nod to the end of the isolationist period over Japan, also known as Sakoku (from 1603 to 1868) with several liberties to its plot in order to make some sense in itself. Your character is a (unnamed and with a blank background) Ronin that arrives in the fictional port city of Amihama where the British Empire are trying to make some deals to achieve new trade routes with the local magistrate government; this arrangement is being antagonized by a xenophobic, traditionalist and borderline terrorist group named Sons of Prajna and as expected there are the locals being caught in the crossfire (a motif in the series) and so your journey begins.

Without getting technical, the game plays as a sort of quasi-open episodic third person hack’n-slash adventure where you use your skills and choices as you progress through the plot. One aspect that makes this game stand out is the fact that you will face various choices and branching paths that leads to one of the 10 possible endings of the game, that can take you a few hours or about 60 minutes if you skip the cutscenes, giving this title a good amount of replayability. Outside the main plot, you can deal with some side activities, either asked by a random NPC that you engage around the town or making contact job dealers, you can also acquire and upgrade your own dojo, create your own martial style and even “court” some characters in a mini-game.

The DLC is ok, for what it does. The only one who really add something worth of mentioning, the Shinsengumi where give you a new chain of side quests, all the others are just clothing package that should have been in the main game, fortunately they are cheap, specially on sales.

There is a lot packed in such a little known game, but it delivers in its own modesty. There are only two aspects of this game that I consider to be a true detractor of the experience: 1 – The engine is locked at 30 fps and 2 – It’s mouse/keyboard scheme is poorly implemented, so having a game pad is a must.

8,5/10

Cheers
