18 years down the line (almost to the day) and Onimusha has returned to store shelves. While its comeback could have been better refined, this is a serviceable remaster with enough bells and whistles to entice veterans and newcomers alike.
Onimusha: Warlords may not be as groundbreaking or as exciting as it was when it first arrived on the PlayStation 2, but it still holds up fairly well. The remastered graphics look better than you would imagine, and the gameplay, while simplistic, is still fun. The addition of analog stick controls is a godsend, even if purists will cry foul.
I definitely had fun with Onimusha: Warlords, despite many of its mechanics and visuals aging poorly since 2001. A lot of my enjoyment comes from revisiting an old favorite, but there's not enough new stuff here to recommend this to someone new to the series. The save system, terrible animations, and unskippable cutscenes just don't work in the modern era.
