In this third installment of the long-running Way of the Samurai series, Way of the Samurai 3 lets players take control of an unnamed samurai as he fights through battles and duels in Sengoku Japan. Developer Acquire did a great job in recreating the Warring States Period of Japan, a time where factions and clans wage war until whoever can finally take control of the islands.
The protagonist can be customized in terms of general appearance and clothing, as well as what type of Japanese weapon he can wield. Players can roam around the countryside, either helping people or causing mayhem with a katana or naginata. And in an era filled with treachery and betrayal, players can choose which side he wants to fight for, which can lead to different endings.
If you're a big fan of classic jidaigeki films like Seven Samurai and historical anime like Rurouni Kenshin, then give this one a try.
