Anyone else blow through this game in a weekend like myself?

I'm glad I rented this through Gamefly and didn't but it or I'd be pissed.

Without any FAQ or walk through, I blew through this game over the weekend (maybe 10-12 hours total).

Sure, Oda Noba (as I call him) took a few tries to beat as the final boss.

Oni 2 took a lot longer to me.
Maybe I'm just that good?

The inclusion of 2 characters and swapping back and forth was fun just didn't hold up in terms of length of game play and puzzle solving skills. It was all beat them up and I never died once (except fighting Oda Noba at the final fight twice)

Anyone else chime in on this?

Nope, but it's on my to-rent list. If its as easy as you say, late fees will be a nonissue (which they sure weren't with Oni 1 & 2).

I was thinking the same thing with Hitman Contracts, which I too rented from GameFly. No one can say Ninja Gaiden is too easy though.

I'm on my 3rd pass through. I'm one of those obsessive "must unlock it all!" types, so I've been using each pass to focus on different things. I really like it, myself, but 2 had more depth with the multiple story branches.

Overall, it's been somewhat easier than the first two, but I'm chalking that up to being more familar with the series and having much improved timing for issens and such. It might be interesting to go back and take another spin through the first two to see if I'm just imagining it.

The only big disappointment in it is:

I don't finally get to cut Tokichiro!!!! I've wanted to gut him like a fish for a good while now and to only get him in the ending movie...

Onimusha 3, along with Rumble Roses and Kingdom Hearts 2 are pretty much the only must-buys this year for me.

It's absolutely worth a rent, at a minimum.
