As a third person hack and slash title, it ranks with the best in gameplay mechanics, but fails in everything else. At some point you are forced to make a decision as to whether or not you will invest any time in this title or not. Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad will likely become bargain bin fodder someday, but hopefully those who enjoy the series will be pleased. This game is not bad, but no one will ever really care enough about it to truly get into it".
