While preparing for the annual Festival of Dolls at the family shrine, Kururugi (either male Michiru or female Kaname, or you can change the first name of the character) falls through a broken floor board with an odd star symbol on it in the storage house. When Kururugi regains his/her senses, s/he finds him/herself in the Warring States Era. Soon s/he meets half-demon dog Inuyasha and joins his group along with fellow time-tossed teen Kagome Higurashi, young fox demon Shippo, the lecherous monk Miroku, and demon slayer Sango. Occassionally the group meets a blind traveler named Kakaju, who helps the group on their quest and helps your character understand the power of Shikigami. Together with Inuyasha and his friends, Kururugi travels Feudal Japan in search of clues of why s/he was brought to this time and find a way to send him/her back to the present. Although, after spending time with a certain member of this group, will s/he really want to go home? Written by Kari Gilmore

Did You Know?


Although this is the second Inuyasha video game series to be released in the US, it is actually the first Inuyasha video game series to be a turn-based RPG and it also features English voice-overs only for the US version by the actual TV series voice actors. See more »

Inuyasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask is one of the worst RPGs on PlayStation 2 since Unlimited Saga. First of all, the game is about that you assume the role of the Kururugi boy or girl and he or she falls into a hole and into Feudal Japan. In Feudal Japan, he or she meets Inuyasha and his friends and go on a journey for the Kururugi boy or girl to go back to his or her world. First, game's background are pre-rendered and are pretty outdated technology for graphics. Second the battle system is slow, and I mean VERY slow. Every time you confirm the battle command, you have to wait at least 1 second per selection. Plus, you cannot skip dual special attack cut-scenes. They are well drawn and animated, but if you are trying to finish the game quickly, I'm afraid you are out of luck. Finally, the last thing bad about this game is that there aren't lots of cut-scenes with animated characters like Inuyasha and his friends. You only get to see one of them when you defeat Naraku. Depending on who you make strong friendship with one of Inuyasha's friends, you'll get the ending, but they are boring, VERY boring. The only thing that is not bad about this game is the English voice acting which are voiced by the original voice actors of the Inuyasha TV series. If you want better anime based video game, try Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex or Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel. You'll have more fun with those games than this Inuyasha game I consider garbage.
