Joystiq: Muramasa: The Demon Blade Review

The environments and enemies may be a bit repetitive (you'll see an endless variety of forests as you travel across Edo-era Japan), but they never stop being gorgeous, and they show a real passion for Japanese culture and history -- the enemies are all based on creatures from Japanese myth, and even the food is presented lovingly in a minigame that forces players to savor every "bite."

Developer Vanillaware's passion for classic ninja action is expressed with every sword flash of every 300-hit combo, allowing Joystiq to justify the enthusiasm they so wanted to feel for this beautiful game.

The story is too old to be commented.
