Critic Reviews for Onee Chanbara Origin

Onee Chanbara Origin remains a cathartic, bloodthirsty, and goofy bit of chaos, whose aesthetic charms have been boosted thanks to Tamsoft's excellent audio/visual upgrade. Unfortunately, the passage of time has somewhat dulled Origin's gameplay, which has been far superseded by other franchises. Offering a short campaign, above-average action, and a slim package, Onee Chanbara Origin is for franchise fans only - and not at its $60 asking price.

Onee Chanbara Origin is a serviceable remake of a couple classic PS2 titles. Developer Tamsoft does a great job giving the games a visual makeover and a much more modern feel. Combat is solid, though a bit basic at times. The experience is also bogged down at times by some performance problems. That aside, and Onee Chanbara is a worthwhile remake of a fun and unique story.

A true and fun action, sluggish by outdated graphics and a longevity below expectations.

While the story is unremarkable and the gameplay doesn't provide any innovations to the aged formula, I still very much enjoyed my time with OneeChanbara Origin as it still left me with a satisfying feeling even with the short time I spent with it.

While the gameplay itself is competent, this is short, shallow game with very little enemy variety, poor level design, and some egregious price-gouging.

Odds are if you're reading this review, you know what to expect from Onee Chanbara Origins. It's Dynasty Warriors with fewer characters, smaller stages and instead of historical figures, it's zombies and cute girls. This is enough to make it fun and give the experience value, though it's hard to really suggest it to anyone else. Between the lack of story and limited content, there isn't much really much of a reason to check it out unless you want to get into the series or already love it.

Onee Chanbara Origin isn't a great game, but it has much more fun combat and smoother visuals than previous entries in the series.

OneeChanbara Origin‘s gameplay is very enjoyable, but if it was longer than five hours, it would have worn out its welcome. It is highly replayable, and has a variation of the “Bloody Palace” survival mode and a secret third playable character to make things interesting long after beating the story.
