With two separate stories with different weapons to wield and bosses to slay, as well as two difficulty modes and multiple endings, fully completing this game will take much longer than the average 2D adventure. While it may not be the sharpest blade from the forge, Muramasa: The Demon Blade is still a finely crafted work of art.
+ Beautiful 2D artwork
+ Polished, combo-filled gameplay
+ Multiple endings, weapons, and items ensure longevity
- Repetitive areas, frequent backtracking
- Lazy, partially translated script
