Raikoh, the famed undead warrior, managed to temporarily save the Japanese population from an onslaught of demons, but had not been able to vanquish them all before returning to his grave. The demons have now resurfaced from hiding places within the sacred capital of Japan, and they are attempting to take control of man once more. In response, five brave warriors take their own lives in a ritual to resurrect Raikoh. Raikoh rises again and the five selfless warriors rise with him, all set to take on the encroaching demon spawn as a team...

Otogi 2: Immortal Warriors takes place directly after the events chronicled in the original Otogi: Myth of Demons - a game which pushed the graphics and hard drive capability of the Xbox to new heights. A sequel is certainly welcomed, but how can it possibly improve (or even compare) on the first instalment.

The short answer is that Immortal Warriors fairs very well indeed. In fact, this is a text book example of how to successfully design a sequel.

This time around Raikoh is joined by five playable characters. These include a wolf, a half-demon woman, a big fat man, a woman with big hair and a tree.

There are over 30 levels to complete, and once you've completed each level you can return at any time to replay it. This is worth doing as it can help you progress through the later levels a lot more smoothly.

The graphics and gameplay are impressive (the backgrounds look like beautiful 3D paintings) and the music is haunting. For those gamers who love an intelligent and well designed fighting RPG adventure, this is certainly worth checking out.
