Set a standard that I've yet to see surpassed

Among the multiple noteworthy things in this is how thoroughly and well-achieved the Manga/Animé aspect of it is. Everything in this is defined by that. The style is just plain *cool*. There are some bugs/glitches, but no show-stoppers... most of them are limited to something that is not entirely aligned, and they aren't that plentiful. This starts off with brief training which goes at your pace, that teaches you just about every function in this(the last couple are covered right after), and you can return to it at any time. This doesn't let you change which keys you use(well, not from the menu). On the other hand, there really aren't that many to remember, and it's set up with the popular WASD configuration(besides, if you ever have trouble remembering what does this or that, learning it is a press of a key, and a click with the mouse, away). Oni is third-person adventure and action, and the latter is an awful lot of fun(which is not at all to say that the former isn't, if it isn't as advanced or as dominant in this as elsewhere). You can shoot as well as fight, and they are both extremely well-integrated(and this is the best game featuring the twain alongside each other that I know), though there is perhaps more use for the latter... that doesn't mean that there hasn't been put strong focus on the weapons as well. The different kinds are... very much so. They're almost always unique, and fit in with the rest of this remarkably well. You can never carry more than one, and only a couple, literally, of ammo types are used for them. The martial arts... astounding, and entertaining, not to mention *awesome*. The system behind is intuitive and you get into it basically immediately. There is a nice wide array of moves, and they're simple enough to activate... and that is also true of your enemies, part of why battling them is not a matter of phoning it in. The other reason? The AI. It's of marvelous quality, with quite few exceptions. The boss matches are excellent, and no two of them are too alike. While there are three difficulty settings, even on the lowest this is challenging, and some may not be able to complete it, and this can be a source of frustration. This has a great sense of humor, and whenever(not so often that this loses it serious tone) it goes for making you laugh, it does so, no joke or gag is forced or tries arduously. This saves at certain points, rather than allowing you to do so anytime... these are usually placed well, and not overly far apart(obviously it can still prove to be annoying). Dialog tends to be very well-written, and equally well-delivered. Taunts, at least those of the foes... not always. They can be silly. Voice acting is in the favorable end of the spectrum. Sound on the whole is commendable. The music is divided into groups, the instrumental score for the emotional impact, and the techno for whenever the situation calls for something more sweet... and no, by that I do not mean love songs, or any tune revolving around lollipops, rainbows or bright colors. Story is interesting, and develops well, and there isn't any of it that is downright poor. The cyberpunk of it is good. It's told well, and with a continuous nod to the comic book nature of the Japanese type. There is an opening and an ending cut-scene, done in 2D cartoon(instead of the 3D of the rest), of course in the manner of films of the sort. In-game cinematics are in-engine, well-scripted(and major props to whoever programmed the cameras). Levels are fairly vast, and built well, however, they largely seem strikingly "empty" as far as objects in them go, interior and exterior. Design is a considerable plus in this. Every gun, attack, opponent, all things in this, well-done all-round. Futuristic, dystopian and threatening. This doesn't have multi-player... whether that's bad or not is subjective, but it's pretty clear that the efforts were fully directed towards single-player, and it pays off, big time. There could be more re-playability... no scores or ranking, not anything but the aforementioned option of choosing between Easy, Normal or Hard. Animation is varied, and it's attractive, as well. Visuals in general are well-done in this. That brings me to the graphics... they're magnificent. Sure, outdone by later releases, when isn't that case? The game-play marries distinct forms of engaging excitement, firearms and meleé with such expertise that you'd otherwise have to watch movies for. Stealth is possible, and can turn out to be worthwhile. Strategy is a must. Missions are somewhat imaginative, not reinventing the genre, nor utilizing or relying upon the stand-bys of it until creativity is a mere memory. You'll infiltrate(not the spy way) bases, give chase, defend, sabotage, and all along undermine the plans of those you are up against. The rating on this is open... something that's welcome and they manage to not downplay it, it's effective and masterfully done all the same(OK, granted, the first of those has a bit to do with the second). Almost anyone, regardless of age, could really play this thing. Sexuality is not an issue, there isn't any. All it amounts to is the clothing, and save for a single, nudity-free drawing, it's all sober. No language that I could tell herein. Violence is PG, PG-13, not a drop of blood or any gore whatsoever. There is disturbing stuff, and don't get me wrong, children should perhaps stay away from this, unless they possess skin of inordinate thickness. For anyone wondering, as far as I know, this is only available for the PC. If you are at all up for this kind of thing, you'd have a tough time of finding any that are better than this. I recommend this warmly to every single fan of the Asian form of expression that I have already mentioned and/or VG's. 8/10
