Genji: Days of the Blade review

Not even four warriors can keep endless hack-and-slash from going stale

The main problem with Genji: Days of the Blade is that you've already played this game a million times, only it was usually a lot snappier than this. Apparently responding to complaints that the first Genji was too short, the developers decided to make each level really long and fill them with repetitive, inescapable, force field-enclosed fights against waves of baddies. Some of the levels are pretty cool, sure, but even the awesome boat-to-boat naval battle at Dannoura gets old after an hour or two of slicing up tough demon samurai and dodging offscreen archers.
