I've read the reviews, I've played the demo...but I'm still wondering if it might be worth it? I love the Onimusha games, and it seems along those lines. I also played the demo and found the camera infuriating.

So I ask you: did you have fun playing it? Would you have gotten it again?

No, I loved the Onimusha games too, and this is horrible.

One of the worst games I've ever personally played.

The game would of been great if they had just pulled the camera back a bit. It is a shame.

I've put a few hours into Genji. I really wanted to give it a fair chance, but there's no denying it has one of the worst cameras I've seen. I couldn't deal with it anymore.

Just play Onimusha again. That's a much better game.

Camera angle is weird...much too close to the action but it's not horrid. I've seen worse cameras. That said, it should have been pulled back farther though.

Thanksgiving can be a sham, but it's a sham with yams. It's a yam sham.

question is how the hell game with this obvious issue comes through testing and in-house review? Whoever was producer should be fired and never let to be in gaming business again.

Damn. Sad to hear that. I played the demo...and thought that it might have potential. I also noticed that I was hitting guys offscreen more than I was onscreen. I was hoping that it was a temporary demo thing. Damn.
