Onee Chanbara Origin remains a cathartic, bloodthirsty, and goofy bit of chaos, whose aesthetic charms have been boosted thanks to Tamsoft's excellent audio/visual upgrade. Unfortunately, the passage of time has somewhat dulled Origin's gameplay, which has been far superseded by other franchises. Offering a short campaign, above-average action, and a slim package, Onee Chanbara Origin is for franchise fans only - and not at its $60 asking price.
It’s by no means the most polished hack n’ slash out there, paling in comparison to Platinum and Capcom’s works, but it still managed to offer some mindless, cathartic fun. Shut down your brain, and you’ll easily look past its issues.
Featuring fast-paced, responsive, gory, and sexy action, Onee Chanbara Origin doesn’t try to be more noble or important than what it is. It’s like a B-grade Devil May Cry but that’s exactly why it’s such fun. Of course, one could niggle that the game is repetitive (then again, what game isn’t?) but it’s so hectic that it doesn’t get old at any point during its eight-ish hours running time.
