RPGFan: Muramasa: The Demon Blade Import Review

RPGFan writes: "Take a peek at the top of this page and you'll see why. The site is called RPGFan because, well, we sort of try to focus on RPG's. Vanillaware's latest offering, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, is not so much an RPG as it is a vaguely RPG-esque 2D hack and slash game. Sure, it's got HP, money, and even level ups. Aside from that, the fundamental game is hardly different from any other side-scrolling beat em' up.

Of course, if you're a fan of traditional role-playing games like Dungeons and Dragons, you could just as well argue that virtually every modern JRPG is not really role-playing. How we define this quirky genre makes for a fascinating debate, but one that is best reserved for the forums and editorial page. Since you are reading my humble review, I'll assume that you aren't too obsessed with the game's exact classification –you just want to hear if it is any good." (Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Oboro Muramasa Youtouden, Oboromuramasa, Wii) 69/100

That's a low score. I was expecting at least an 80. I'll still pick it up because I loved Odin Sphere, just not on the first day.

They are knocking it because it is not a true RPG? WOW I'm wondering if they even played the game?

Lol, let's all remember that review are opinions. No point bashing them.

Well Odin Sphere was more of an action game than an RPG, imo.
