Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Boy oh boy this game upped the Onimusha series from a good series, to a great series.  You start the game out as Soki the Blue demon.  Then you meet Jubei also in the cast of characters you get Tenkai who rocks Roberto and last but no least Oh-hot-Sue.  The game is a little to linear because there are stages instead of an open world like the fist few onimusha's. A rather large positive though, is this, it finally has a co-op mode. This adds a whole new demision to the game.  As all the Onimusha games go the AI is a little lack luster at times but some enemies are very difficult.  The story line is solid as usual. The fighting is fluid.  Items are nice, they still lacks customization, but I can't complain.  The 100 level demon relam will add hours of entertainment to this game, so call up your best friend and have at it.  Just know, at level 50 and 100 you get a the two strongest weapons for the charcter, player one is playing with.  Boss fights are great minus the fact like all the Onimusha games you fight the same boss over and over again, which I really wish they fix.  The only complaint I have about this game is you have to go back to certain levels when you get all your characters because most of the goodies can't be found without you beening able to have access to all characters.  Another great thing is, in single player mode you still have an AI character with you, so if you get low on health just switch characters.  They also have bonuses that they bring your main character.  Graphics are also very solid for being a PS2 game.  But the flip side, one negitive is..... the camra angles will bug out sometimes in co-op mode.

All in all this is a great game.  Anyone who has an Onimusha game or has played one and thought it was good, this is a buy for sure.  If you haven't played an Onimusha game before but have always wanted to, rent it please.  This is the best Onimusha game in the sieres.

Also to enable 2 player mode... at the title screen player one hold down R1, R2, L1 and L2.  Player 2 hold down R1, R2, L1, L2 and I believe it is start and select if that is wrong I apologize.
