In The Mix

Onimusha: Warlords
Sony Playstation 2
Capcom USA

Holy cow! I stopped playing video games somewhere around Atari and got back in after snagging a Playstation 2. This game, which pits you as a samurai warlord fighting all sorts of demons and such, is a marvel to look at and almost too much fun to play. It’s also damn hard! Prepared to be blown away and very aggravated. Currently, I’m trying to solve one of many mind-bending puzzles, and my failure has resulted in my repeated death. Yes, this is a great game, and it’s mighty good to look at, but it is pissing me off to major extremes at the moment, and I’m going to take a long break. There’s a book out there that tells the secrets, but I refuse to give in.
