Samurai / Swords

Playstation 3
The Playstation series seems to love samurai and swords. There are a ton of games that set you back in the days of feudal Japan or China.

Seven Samurai 20XX PS2 star
Seven Samurai 20XX PS2 combined the efforts of Akira Kurosawa's estate, artist Moebius and author Marc Handler. It should have been at least good. Instead, it is surprisingly boring.

Dynasty Warriors 5 star
The Dynasty Warriors series of games keeps going and going! We´re up to #5 now - with Chinese warriors running around slashing through historical battles.

Kengo - Master of Bushido star
Games based on samurai and ninja have been popular for years. In Kengo, you move from apprentice to full samurai master, fighting through challenges.

Nightshade PS2 star
Nightshade PS2 lets you play as a female ninja - Hibana - who wears a rather wild red and white outfit. She's in a modern landscape, but uses swords and virtual AI style goggles.

Ninja Gaiden Sigma Review star
Ninja Gaiden Sigma is an updated version of Ninja Gaiden, ported over to the PS3 platform. It features enhanced graphics and additional gameplay.

Onimusha Blade Warrior star
I´m a fan of samurai games as well as fighting games. Onimusha Blade Warrior is sort of like Super Smash Brothers with sharp swords.

PS2 Devil Kings Review star
Devil Kings is a Dynasty Warriors style game where you choose a main character, start on a map, and plow your way through literally thousands of enemies.

Samurai Champloo Sidetracked star
Samurai Champloo was first a manga and anime - and now Samurai Champloo Sidetracked fills in a missing piece of the storyline. It's an interactive, humorous adventure game.

Samurai Warriors star
I am a big fan of feudal Japan and was thrilled when Samurai Warriors finally came out. This is a version of the classic Dynasty Warriors set in Japan.

Samurai Warriors 2 star
Samurai Warriors 2 is another chapter in the Dynasty Warriors / Samurai Warriors line. You get a warrior with a long weapon who bashes his way through thousands of enemies.

Samurai Western PS2 Game star
In Samurai Western, you get to play either a sword wielding samurai or a gun-toting cowboy, running around the Old West and fighting your way through endless enemies.

Shinobi star
Shinobi means "female ninja", but in this latest version on the PS2 you´re Hotsuma, leader of the turned-to-zombies Oboro clan.

Tenchu - Fatal Shadows PS2 star
Tenchu - Fatal Shadows PS2 is a stealth ninja game from a classic series. At one time the graphics in this game were stellar - but they appear quite dated now.

Tenchu: Wrath of Heaven star
The latest in the Tenchu series lets you choose to be a male or female ninja, out to do good and save innocent villagers.

Way of the Samurai star
I´m a HUGE samurai fan so it´s no surprise that I would have bought Way of the Samurai. After a slow start, I found it really interesting!

Way of the Samurai 2 star
Way of the Samurai was a great fighting game with multiple endings based on your honor. Way of the Samurai 2 adds better graphics and more paths!

Way of the Samurai 3 star
Way of the Samurai 3 is an open-world game styled like an old-school samurai film. In some ways, it lives up to the standards of the series; in others, it overextends itself.

Way of the Samurai 4 Review star
Way of the Samurai 4, Acquire's open-ended Japanese swordfighting game, takes a somewhat goofy turn with this fourth installation.

Way of the Samurai 4 Tips star
If you're playing Way of the Samurai 4, be sure to keep these tips in mind when playing. They can save you a lot of grief and replay time!
