The Armchair Empire writes: "Of all the titles seen at E3, it was Onechanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers that stood alone as a straight-up, try-not-to-think-too-hard, action game on the Wii. Most other games I saw had some kind of hook; a definite "feature" that attempted to differentiate itself from the crowd. ("Look! We've got a new cover system!") Onechanbara's only hook is that the game features provocatively dressed sisters."
