It's been almost two decades since the fall of Japanese warlord Nobunaga Oda. The fallen ruler's own vassal Hideyoshi Toyotomi has succeeded in uniting Japan under the banner of peace... until June 29th, 1596 when a strange, glowing planet appears in the sky. From that moment on, Hideyoshi is transformed into a power-mad dictator and the country is rocked by natural disasters. Soon an evil army of demons appears; disorder spreads across the country; people are lost; and villages are burned to the ground. Just when it seems Japan is approaching its darkest hour, a mysterious warrior appears on the scene to try and stop the havoc. He's Soki, Oni of the Ash -- otherwise known as "The Blue Demon." The latest chapter in Japan's epic struggle between good and evil has begun. Written by Anonymous

A new chapter in the Onimusha Saga begins!
13 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With the defeat of the evil Nobunaga Oda in the third game at the hands of the main protagonist Samanosuke Akechi, peace has finally been restored to Japan...or has it? Not long ago we saw that Nobunaga's vassal Tokichiro Kinoshita took over from where Nobunaga left off and then recalls himself Hideyoshi Toyotomi and establishes a new peace over the land, however this period of peace ends with several natural disasters acting as an omen of things to come including the appearance of an "Omen Star" in the sky.

Very soon the Genma forces return to plunge the country into eternal darkness and Hideyoshi establishes his master plan to conquer the world. But, there are some people who are not prepared to let Hideyoshi have his way...

That's the long and short of it though, You'll have to play the game and find out more ^_^ But anyway, Onimusha Dawn Of Dreams has got to be the best game in the saga so far, great visual effects, mentions to previous games and lets not forget...Analog Sticks for movement in the game play!!! So far I know that the Onimusha series is far from finished and hopefully we will see 2 more games follow this version, but overall.

Great game in both English & Japanese, you will not be disappointed!
