Storyline

The game opens with a narration by William describing Amrita, a mystical golden stone found in abundance in Japan that is sought by the government of Queen Elizabeth I to secure victory over Spain. William is held in the Tower of London, but breaks out with the help of his Spirit Guardian Saoirse, a being born from the prayers of his home village who saved him from death when he was a boy and now prevents him from dying. William corners Edward Kelly, who is seeking Japan's Amrita. Capturing Saoirse with his own Ouroboros spirit, Kelly uses her to find Japan, with William going in pursuit. Landing in Japan in 1600, he fights Oni that are ravaging the area, catching the attention of Hanzo Hattori.

Just another cheap Dark Souls rip off
31 May 2018 | by morandottiandreaSee all my reviews

Just like I said in the title, this game is another Dark Souls rip off. Team Ninja needed to make a few extra bucks so they took the DS game mechanics and changed the setting to a 16th century japanese environment, just to make it look different. Too bad they also tried to make it unnecessarily harder (e.g. bosses that one-shot kill you, limited summonings, etc...). The result is an unbalanced Dark Souls clone. If you have money to spend get Bloodborne, you won't be disappointed.
