If you think this will be a great game, think again.
Inuyasha: The Secret of the Cursed Mask is one of the worst RPGs on PlayStation 2 since Unlimited Saga. First of all, the game is about that you assume the role of the Kururugi boy or girl and he or she falls into a hole and into Feudal Japan. In Feudal Japan, he or she meets Inuyasha and his friends and go on a journey for the Kururugi boy or girl to go back to his or her world. First, game's background are pre-rendered and are pretty outdated technology for graphics. Second the battle system is slow, and I mean VERY slow. Every time you confirm the battle command, you have to wait at least 1 second per selection. Plus, you cannot skip dual special attack cut-scenes. They are well drawn and animated, but if you are trying to finish the game quickly, I'm afraid you are out of luck. Finally, the last thing bad about this game is that there aren't lots of cut-scenes with animated characters like Inuyasha and his friends. You only get to see one of them when you defeat Naraku. Depending on who you make strong friendship with one of Inuyasha's friends, you'll get the ending, but they are boring, VERY boring. The only thing that is not bad about this game is the English voice acting which are voiced by the original voice actors of the Inuyasha TV series. If you want better anime based video game, try Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex or Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel. You'll have more fun with those games than this Inuyasha game I consider garbage.
