Musashi Vs Cthulhu Review (PlayStation 4)

Musashi Vs Cthulhu Review is a fast-paced action game where you take control of Musashi – the most famous warrior from feudal Japan -, as he’s fighting for his life. The ronin is a victim of a terrible curse that makes him a target for unspeakable monsters. In each match, hordes of monsters spawn endlessly and attack until there’s no one standing. The enemies come from both sides of the screen and must be attacked with precise blows to bulging weak spots shown in their bodies. Challenge your friends to see who is the coldest and most precise warrior, even when facing impossible odds.

Musashi Vs Cthulhu Review Pros:

  • Nice graphics.
  • 1.30GB download size.
  • Platinum trophy.
  • Works on Playstation 5.
  • Optional tutorial.
  • The spirit lantern gets filled by attacking enemies or taunting.
  • The spirit lantern lets you make mistakes without any repercussions but every use makes it longer to refill next time.
  • Your character doesn’t move and you have to time attacks – left and right then high, middle, and low.
  • Enemies can have pulsating weak spots so you can kill them quicker.
  • Heavily based on reflexes.
  • When you do get hit you push all enemies back so you get a bit of breathing space.
  • Button prompts do show up as enemies approach.
  • Full leaderboard support with weekly, daily, monthly, and all-time filters.
  • Trophy room which you fill up as you earn trophies.
  • Enemies are varied and some of them take multiple hits.
  • The gameplay loop is endless and beating Cthulhu or dying is the only way out.
  • Can get very addictive with the almost rhythmic button presses etc.

Musashi Vs Cthulhu Review Cons:

  • Takes time to get used to the controls as the fave buttons are the right attacks, and the d-pad is the left attacks.
  • The button icon is small and doesn’t show until the last possible moment.
  • The tutorial is very basic.
  • Very reflex heavy which can be an issue for some gamers.
  • No way to remap controls.
  • Doesnt have any actual power-ups or special attacks so the combat feels a bit repetitive and stale over time.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
