Game mode: single player
Featuring a responsive and innovative control scheme, and a character with the flexibility to match, Oni is still one of the sharpest, most compelling 3rd person action games on any system. Take control of the multi-talented Konoko as she battles a brutal crime syndicate in the year 2032. Konoko's abilities range from unmatched martial arts skill to unerring aim with any weapon. An impressive control scheme makes 3D combat as simple as it is fun. String together wicked combos, or break the neck of an unsuspecting bad guy.
Stealth, strategy and intuition will complement your melee abilities and as the adventure unfolds, you'll find out more about yourself than you could ever have expected. Smoothly, seamlessly blending shooting and fighting, the game has often been compared to John Woo-style Hong Kong action flicks, but it's so much more. Players will find themselves changing their style of play to suit the challenge ahead of them � sneaking through shadows one moment, and smashing their way through glass, steel and bone the next.
Bungie's combination of sharp, detailed graphics and innovative AI means that no two games of Oni are ever exactly alike. A preconditioned, constrained neural net AI means that bad guys learn from their mistakes and adapt their strategies to make Konoko's mission that bit more difficult.
