Onimusha: Warlords Remastered
Top Critic Average
Whether this release is testing the water for a return to the series, or it's just a dip into the library to throw out a release in January, Onimusha is one of Capcom's finest and least appreciated. Hopefully with this new version, creaky as it can be at times, the game (and franchise) finds some new fans. It would be great to have Onimusha and Nioh competing side by side to have the premier Japanese dark fantasy crown.
Onimusha Warlords is a 18-year-old classic game which despite of being too outdated, is still enjoyable and can leave some unforgettable moments in players' memories. In other words, it still can engage gamers in its dark bloody world! In spite of the fact that Capcom didn't do much in order to modernize Onimusha Warlords, we recommend playing this game to both Onimusha fans and the newcomers.

Capcom could have done more with Onimusha: Warlords, but they didn't screw it up (at least on PS4) and that's all they really needed to do. Given that I still play the original from time to time, I'd say I'm more than happy with a nip and a tuck here and there. Now we just need the full trilogy.
A great return that makes us want a new iteration on this franchise.

Onimusha: Warlords is a worthy remaster, and even though it feels rather short, the combat and exploration of such a claustrophobic world reminds you just how good it is.
Onimusha: Warlords makes a welcome return and still remains one of the greatest samurai adventures of all time
I’ll admit that I was already a big fan of the game after spending hours with it in my younger years, but I’m glad to report that Onimusha: Warlords Remastered still holds up well today. The combat is fun and surprisingly intricate, the world itself is fascinating to explore, whilst the visuals manage to hold up well despite being originally designed for the PlayStation 2 – it certainly won’t feel like you’re playing an eighteen-year old game. It has its flaws too though and some gamers might not tolerate the fixed camera angles or the amount of backtracking featured in the game, whilst there’s no denying it has moments that it can just generally feel a little bit clunky too. The pros of the game absolutely outweigh the cons though and with the low price-point of £15.99 you’d be a fool to miss out on Onimusha: Warlords Remastered. Not only is it a great way to experience a series that needs a SERIOUS revival, but it also just so happens to offer a thoroughly enjoyable demon-filled adventure in its own right too.
I waited so many time to finally play an Onimusha game again. One of my most beloved series of all time which i have some of my best memories with, on PS2. Fortunately i must say that Capcom has done a great job on remastering quality of Onimusha Warlords and Technically, it is one the best remasters in this generation. After many years, Battle system and gameplay elements of Onimusha Warlords are still entertaining, challenging and fun. If you are looking for an amazing hack and slash in this generation, Onimusha Warlords Remastered is one of the best choices for you to play, even with some issues like camera problems. So either you play the original game or not, you must prepare yourself and Samanosuke to defeat Lord Nobunaga!

While the story isn't out-of-this-world and the gameplay experience has some annoying flaws, Onimusha Warlords is, at the end of the day, a great game and a true classic that deserved to be brought to Xbox One.
Onimusha: Warlords is a fun remaster for those who have not experienced the franchise.
