Genji: Days of the Blade is a Dynasty Warriors-style action game set in feudal Japan. This follow-up to 2005's Genji: Dawn of the Samurai offers more expansive environments, fighting moves, and playable characters than its PlayStation 2 predecessor. The storyline once again follows lead protagonist Genkuro Yoshitsune as he battles the rival Heishi clan using swordplay and team-oriented combination moves. Unlike the original game, players can now freely switch between four characters, to use each combatant's distinct skills and abilities against enemy troops and boss characters. The technology behind PlayStation 3 allows for detailed battlefields, naval warfare, and horseback riding, as hundreds of warriors engage each other in hack-and-slash combat. Revered swordsman Mitsuhiko Seike helped choreograph the fighting sequences and provided the motion-captured maneuvers in the game. Genji: Days of the Blade is estimated to offer more than 15 hours worth of sword-swinging skirmishes for solo samurai. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
