Genji: Days of the Blade

Like the original Genji, the gameplay bears strong similarities to that of Capcom's Onimusha series. The player controls four characters—Minamoto Yoshitsune, a samurai and the protagonist of the previous game; Musashibo Benkei and Yoshitsune's old friend; Shizuka Gozen, a female priestess; and Lord Buson, a spear-wielding warrior who bears a striking resemblance to one of Yoshitsune's old foes. All four characters have separate lifebars; however, should one die, the game ends regardless of the other characters' health at the time. In previous game, all characters have access to a real-time weapon change feature that lets them switch between their main weapons quickly. Days of the Blade is one of the first games for the PlayStation 3 that utilize the built-in hard drive. When you load up the game, you are given the option of installing a large portion of the game's data onto the PlayStation 3 hard drive, drastically reducing load times.
