The Myth of Demons continues, as the undead warrior hero Raikoh returns to Xbox for another combat adventure. Again, players will guide the agile, well-armed supernatural swordsman through a highly destructible game world based on the myths of legends of feudal Japan. As in the original, battle involves high leaps and mid-air clashes, with extensive combination moves and powerful, magical ranged attacks. In this second outing, however, Raikoh is joined by five other playable warrior characters.
In his first Xbox adventure, Raikoh managed to stave off the demonic uprising and protect the people of the land, but elements of the evil remained and resurged as Raikoh passed back away from this world. Now, hordes of demons threaten once again to conquer and destroy all of humanity, and five new heroes have come together to join Raiko in his fight to stop them.
This group is diverse. Adept at overpowering throws and grapples, Kintoki is an undead warrior like Raiko. Tsuna is a werewolf, devastating in melee, and Sadamitsu is a small girl with a big scythe. Suetake is a creature of nature, part woman and part tree. Seimei is a priestess of such holy power that a soft, warm glow emanates from her person.
Except for Seimei, each of these characters is available from the start of the game, but there's a twist: Players cannot lead the same character throughout the entire adventure. Using a character on one level may make him or her unavailable in another. It will take the efforts of all six "Immortal Warriors" to quell the demonic uprising and bring peace to the land for another day. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
