Trivia

The original trailer had Jubei wearing an eye patch. He was modeled after the legendary Jubei from Japanese history. Capcom scrapped this and decided to continue the trend of modeling the main character after a famed actor. See more »

better than the first in more ways than one!
19 October 2002 | by (Colorado Springs, Colorado) – See all my reviews

i played this game for 4 days straight and it is WAY better than the first!

the plot is basically the same (mystic samurai must defeat demon horde), but now, you absorb your enemies' souls (ala "Soul Reaver") instead of their power. Also, you can transform into "Onimusha", a powered-up version of yourself with white hair, purple skin, & energy powers.

this is about as close to an interactive movie as you're going to get! (besides playing Max Payne) Pick this one up!
