Re: What Made You "Fall In Love" With Oni?

I recently saw a PC version in a Half-Priced Book store, kind of surprised to see it.

The artwork on the box is pretty nice, though some of the "screen shots" might have not actually made it into the game, I think.

Re: What Made You "Fall In Love" With Oni?

This was my 1st game that used the WASD + mouse control system. Now we see it in all PC fps! I was quite impressed how smooth and fluent the hand to hand combat system works with your own easy manipulative control and how easily satisfying it was to defeat your enemies.

I was 13 when the demo came out and yeah I was really motivated to get the full version asap. What I really loved about Oni was obviously Konoko/Mai. Aside from Tomb Raider, she was by far the most attractive game character I've ever seen. I love her purple hairstyle, her body, her green eyes, her voice, her masterful fighting skill and her spirit to seek out truth and justice. The artworks of her are just fantastic!

Everything about the game had a strong substance; the addictive game-play, the gripping deep storyline, the look of your enemies and the world of 2030= an amazing game that I experienced.

Further on, I can't think of any other game that is based on an anime concept. I can only think of Ghost in the Shell. So therefore, Oni is a classic and very a special game to me that I will always remember forever!

Hmm airports hangars right before checkpoint 2 with the 3 blue rooms and the computer inside. The gloomy music that was playing gave you an anime sense of "something's gonna happen and i'm not gonna like it" and it did happen, that song is for me the best dark/gloomy piece of music i've ever heard

Re: What Made You "Fall In Love" With Oni?

When I played the first level I was already in love with the game. The graphic style, the fighting moves, the guns and the story. Everything felt alright. The difficulty curve was very good. It was a pretty hard game at the ending levels, but you just don't want to give up because you want to know the story.

Re: What Made You "Fall In Love" With Oni?

I had just bought myself a PS2 back in 2001, I think. When I was picking a game at GameStop, I saw a copy of Oni sitting there like any game would. I looked at the back of the game's cover (and price tag) and saw what I was to expect. Priced at only $4.99, I purchased the game and immediately, I was hooked on the game as soon as I got home playing it. I don't know what got me addicted to the game, but I'm just gonna assume it was every aspect of the game that immediately got my full attention. Too bad the ol' PS2's broke, but there'a always the PC side of things...

Re: What Made You "Fall In Love" With Oni?

My dad got it back in 2001. I enjoyed watching him play it. Then in 2007 he gave me his copy. I loved it. I lost the disc a few months ago, and I was VERY, VERY UN-HAPE'MASK. But today I rejoice, as my new copy arrived in the mail. And now I will never let my precious out of my sight ever, ever, ever again.

Re: What Made You "Fall In Love" With Oni?

The combination of melee fighting and gun shooting, fighting against opponents when there's weapons in play and come out victorious is just sooo satisfying. However in order to have a chance against the black adder when you've got low health there need to be a lengthened reload animation, it's too unrealistically fast for all the weapons.


-I noticed that the hackers of oni community made a lot of modifications before they locked me up, do you have any idea what they want with an old game? -Modifications? What kind of modifications?
-Hard to tell, without getting a look at things but it looks like they're repurposing it. -Why?
-Beats me, all the game has is brutal melee combat and furious gunplay. -I dont like the sound of that.....

Re: What Made You "Fall In Love" With Oni?

I remember playing the game in kindergarten after seeing my dad play the training level. I got instantly hooked. I loved her outfit and her purple hair. When I was a kid I tried to cut my hair like hers but I ruined my hair  yikes
But the thing that I love about Oni even today is the atmosphere of it. This game also has everything like monsters, ninjas, lasers, martial arts, shooting, snipers, robots, acid vats, ziplines, and countless other things. This game is so underrated that it sickens me. No game nowadays can even compare to this game.

byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?
