In addition to killing things dead, Kisuke and Momohime will be doing a lot of blade forging and cooking. There are two types, blades and long blades, that follow typical fighting properties: blades are quicker but with a shorter range, long blades are slower but tend to cause higher damage and can reach further. Blade forging is presented in a branching layout, requiring you to have certain ones in order to forge others, and you’ll need souls and spirit to craft new weaponry. Souls are scattered throughout the map and are left behind by fallen foes, with spirit gained through cooking and eating.Bạn đang xem: Muramasa: the demon blade (nintendo wii, 2009) for sale

Cooking is an oddly hands-on thing; pick a recipe you have the ingredients for and press

My only complaint is the price tag. I rented the game, loved it - but it"s clearly a 30 dollar title. 50 dollars is way high for a game like this.

After reading a few reviews this has made it"s way to my "rent not own" list. Drop dead gorgeous though.

Mon 21st Sep 2009

I will be picking this one up on way home from work today!Didn"t pick it up, but I did get it as a gift for Christmas from my friend.

Mon 21st Sep 2009

Man I really think this game is like a 9. The back tracking and "button-mashing" is nothing when your addicted to sword creation, leveling up, and getting to the next boss.

Mon 21st Sep 2009

I just looked at the number without reading the review, I want to know as little as possible about this one. Can"t wait to get an EU release date!

Awesome review btw.

Mon 21st Sep 2009

Alphanerd, $30 game?!, are you kidding!? The amount of love poured into this game easily warrants a $50 price tag. Also, Jonathan, the fast travel is available in the main game prior to "beating" it with a character. But I find the traveling to be a very Zen experience of artistic and natural appreciation, as well as more opportunity to level

Mon 21st Sep 2009

Yeah I agree with 8/10, maybe even 7/"s an awesome game, but yeah the storyline is ridicutarded, it"s a bit too short, the sword tree is super linear, and there are just a few moments of questionable game design choice. But yeah, about to finish Momohime"s quest and I had a great time. Then back to FuSoYa"s quest in FF4TAY, then the rest of the main!

Mon 21st Sep 2009

Nothing in the review that discourages me from purchasing it. Don"t like the choice of button for jump. Why not A to jump and B to combat?

Mon 21st Sep 2009

This is another example of great graphics, no so great gameplay. The art is sweet, but it has plenty of problems. I"d say around the 7/10 range, myself.

Mon 21st Sep 2009

"I hate "up" as a jump button.There is no way to customize controls in this game?"

Actually, I"d love to hear this also. Pressing up to jump isn"t something I"m keen on either... so alternate control schemes would be nice.

Mon 21st Sep 2009

Cheers Jonathan, this review has me as amped up as much as ever and I appreciate that you are clear regarding the backtracking, endings and slightly basic combat controls. Fair play. That is all cool to me, an 8/10 is a quality score and I will play through this one just to experience its fun gameplay. I also know that I will enjoy travelling through "one of the best-looking games this gen", it looks completely dazzling.Thanks, a great review.

Mon 21st Sep 2009

........bad review....i"m giving you one hour to explain to me what a niggle is. I refuse to look for context clues or online for a defintion.

SeanAaron an EU release would be cool, but King of Fighters and Samurai Showdown collections never did show up from Ignition in any proper numbers, and they were released in March this year...Ristar42 You"re right, I was fortunate enough to find King of Fighters on pal PS2, but Samurai Shodown Anthology is a rarity.Mon 21st Sep 2009

Saying the game is flawed in the first three words of the review is not a way to convince someone that a game is good, as an 8/10 is trying to do. When people see such a negative comment so early on it overshadows all positive things could ever be mentioned, there is no coming back from that. I bet dozens of people will not even consider buying this game because of that single word. In the review the only "flaws" pointed out are rather small nitpicks, not game breaking problems as is implied. IMO that word should be stricken from the review, but other than that, I agree with what was written.

Simply an awesome game and should be bought by all self-respecting Wii owners!

JamieO - Yep, it sucks, I"ve never seen the Wii version of either except on Ebay. I contacted Ignition some time ago but they didn"t reply. Have to stick with my Dreamcast / Saturn versions...Mon 21st Sep 2009

Hi, I"m from Rising Star Games - we intend to release Muramasa on 13 November 2009 in the EU.

Mon 21st Sep 2009

this is one of the best games all year on the wii and the most beautiful 2d game ever

Syr post 23:Is it hard being so over the top? Those 3 words you"re talking about also included gorgeous and engaging. Get a grip.The Fox Actually, it comes quite easily. To say it is flawed after saying it is gorgeous and engaging is like saying "Yeah, I had this sandwich. It had great ingredients and looked gourmet, but wasn"t very good." To end a description negatively is to dismiss the good things said prior.

Nothing against the reviewer though, great work Jonathan!

Tue 22nd Sep 2009

Complaining about the sword tree being to linear is retarded. Theres a HUNDRED freaking swords and the do it in like 7 rows. Its only as linear as you make it.

The length isn"t amazing but if you did it with no side quests you"d probably beat it in 12 hours. Thats a hell of a lot better then you"d get from other games. I know you"ve bought a game you enjoyed less, beaten in 6 hours, and aren"t regretting buying. (WiiMusic)

And at least the story line is more interesting the Twilight Princess.

Ristar42: TorisuRSG beat me to it, but Ignition UK and USA are not identical in their releases and Rising Star are handling Muramasa over here. The problems with the titles you mention are down to distribution; I"d keep going at Ignition and also try or .se as I understand availability on the continent should be fine.

TorisuRSG: Nice to see you! Needless to say Rising Star is one of my very favourite publishers. GAME doesn"t have Muramasa up for pre-order yet or I"d have pre-ordered it already. Any idea on when we can expect Fragile to grace our shores and pretty please can you guys consider Phantom Brave for localisation (even better would be if you could convince Nintendo to license Captain Rainbow!)?

SeanAaron Cheers Sean, some great advice on getting hold of some difficult to find Ignition UK, Wii SNK/Playmore titles there.I have not imported from other European sites, even though I import from Canada and Hong Kong. I seem to remember UK gamers talking about importing Pal "Fire Pro Wrestling Returns" (PS2) from other parts of Europe. I think that I"ve misssed the boat on that one, though. Cheers.Sean Aaron, thanks for your kind words. We intend to release Fragile early 2010 but I can"t yet be any more specific than that, sorry. I"ll pass on the game suggestions but no promises! Tue 22nd Sep 2009

I"d waffle and maybe give it a 7 instead of an 8...a) Yes, it"s gorgeousb) The button mashing is pretty func) The stories suck. Period. Confusing, I have NO CLUE why I"m doing what I"m doing right now as the girl.d) You have to switch swords too frequently. Just as you are starting to get used to one"s special attack, you need a stronger one. Some I"ve never even gotten to use their special attackse) Some of the special attacks are virtually uselessf) There"s bad collision detection when you swing your swordg) Related to d), there"s NO PRACTICE MODE. You can"t test out moves and combos, and can"t learn what a new special attack does until you are in the heat of combat.

Tue 22nd Sep 2009

And yeah, I actually agree that the sword tree is linear. Despite it"s "branches", you have to wait for story points for most of them, and there is rarely more than 1 or 2 swords you can make (or at least use) at any given time because the required stats for them are so spread out

TorisuRSG: Please, you guys deserve it for doing such a great job with that stuff. Of course it probably helps that Marvelous has been publishing great games in Japan for you to bring over!

I strongly recommend getting that guy from the Little King"s Story video more work -- not just because he"s an articulate and good-looking fellow, but because his enthusiasm really came through and sold me the game. I was interested but not ready to buy upon release; after that video I pre-ordered it right away!

SeanAaron Thanks for the suggestions Sean, its frustrating when you are trying to support quality 2D games on Wii, and you cant find them anywhere amid shelves of "Ready Steady Cook" and "Ninja Bread-man". Wed 23rd Sep 2009

I might give it a rent. I was afraid that the combat would be too mashy, although with THAT many different weapons, it may not be much of a problem. It"s the art that so far has physically blinded me everytime I watch a trailer that"s the main issue here.

SeanAaron do you mean Tyrone Walcott? He"s one of my colleagues and I keep trying to persuade him to do more videos. Hopefully he will now I"ve shown him your comment!

Ristar42 many thanks - I"m sure you will enjoy it.

Sat 26th Sep 2009

i must get it now

Sat 26th Sep 2009

I got this game and it"s incredible. Muramasa is the Wii"s Symphony of the Night.

Sun 4th Oct 2009

After watching a decent portion of the gameplay, I am seriously considering renting this game.

And am I the only one who doesn"t like the look of this game? The movement and animations just seem awkward to me, and I hate the artsyle.

Wed 2nd Dec 2009

Just bought this today, got my Datel classic controller hooked up and I gotta say I’m loving it so far, if you’re on the fence about this game, and you like a good 2D platforming adventure just buy it!

Mon 7th Dec 2009

This is the most boring game I"ve played this year. No need to be crude about it - Moderating team

Mon 14th Dec 2009

i just bought this from hmv! for £30 pounds. and i love it and i think it deserve at least 9/10. Hmv is only place ive seen this game and there were only two copys in store? No one seems to be stocking this game & its bloody shame! This out-rates all them half baked titles that are two short or to crammed with tons rubbish mini games and pointless waggling! Games like this are unique & deserve attention!! and should be in your collection!

do yourself favour get this now!!

Mon 14th Dec 2009

This is another one of the many games on my "to buy" list--sadly, it"ll have to wait a while...

Great review, by the way.

Fri 5th Feb 2010

Well, for those saying it should be a $30 dollar game, Gamestop now sells it for 29.99 new.

Fri 5th Mar 2010

Just found this on clearance at Sears for $19.99 and picked it up. For that price point, I"m sure it"s well worth it.

Mon 23rd Jul 2012

I got it a few days ago for just 10$! I think it"s a really good game and the graphics are amazing Thu 30th Aug 2012Meh. I bought this a while ago for £25 (also from HMV) on the strength of reviews but have ended up disappointed. Sure, it"s beautiful to look at and competent to play, but it"s gameplay is as hollow as a drinking straw...extremely repetitive and with precious little variety except for boss get a whole bunch of different swords to use but combat is pretty much the same with all of them...button bash and jump around when you need to. A real shame, as I usually like games of this genre and really wanted to like this too, but ultimately I wouldn"t award this anything higher than a 6 (or a being-generous 7).
