Oni is a third-person action video game developed by Bungie West, a division of Bungie. Released in 2001, it was Bungie West’s only game. Gameplay consists of third-person shooting with hand-to-hand combat, with a focus on the latter. Originally planned just for the Mac OS and Windows, a PlayStation 2 port was concurrently developed by Rockstar Canada. The game’s style was largely inspired by Ghost in the Shell and Akira and shares the same genre, being set in a cyberpunk world.

There are ten different guns in Oni, including handguns, rifles, rocket launchers, and energy weapons. Power-ups such as “hyposprays”, which heal damage, and cloaking devices, which render the player invisible, can be found scattered throughout the levels or on corpses. Since the player can carry only one weapon at a time and ammunition is scarce, hand-to-hand combat is the most effective and common means of defeating enemies. The player can punch, kick, and throw enemies; progressing into later levels unlocks stronger moves and combos.

There are multiple classes of enemy, each with its own style of unarmed combat. Each class is subdivided into tiers of increasing strength. As in Bungie’s earlier Marathon titles, tiers are color-coded, in this case by green (weakest), blue, and red (strongest). Also color-coded are the levels of health each opponent has, indicated by a flash when the player strikes or shoots them. Green flashes show the opponent has high health, red flashes show the enemy is near death.

Oni does not confine the player to fighting small groups of enemies in small arenas; each area is fully open to explore. The fourteen levels are of various sizes, some large enough to comprise an entire building. Bungie hired two architects to design the buildings.

The Oni engine implements a method of interpolation that tweens key frames, smoothing out the animation of complex martial-arts moves. However, frame slippage is a common problem when multiple non-player characters near the player are attacking.

  • They could have added a bit more T&A like they promised in the promotional material.

  • PC controls were actually very comfortable to play. But the PS2 port… Ugh.

  • Great game! Played it back in 2001 on my P200MMX, it was laggy but okay. I really enjoyed the story and the characters. And fighting genre was almost non-existent on PC back then, so I liked this game a lot. I still wait for a sequel.

  • Oni was a great game. I loved the action, the story was good, yes the controls were a tad clunky, but it was still very good.

  • I never owned Oni (because parents) but played the demo endlessly. It had the best combat system I've ever played. They should absolutely remaster or sequel this game.

  • If they remastered this, I would play the shit out of it.

  • It's not an anime game until the protagonist and antagonist scream each other's names at the top of their lungs for 10 minutes.

  • On the topic of "Remaster" or "Remake," I wish they would do that with Legend of Dragoon.

  • blocking buttons is NOT good. for instance, latest jedi game it would be normal to block by attacking, CAUSE ITS A LIGHTSABER. but no. you cant block AND attack at the same time.

  • Good review of a game I enjoy to this day. Only complaint is the description of the main character, she not a Android but more like modified human would be better term.

  • Ah yes, I remember bugging my parents to get me that game after reading about it in a game magazine that I had an abo for that time around. All was well and good until my mum found the last page of the article with the picture of Konoko in her torn up outfit. What an earfull I got and of course, no game for me.^^ Fourteen years old me was understandably a bit miffed.
    Funny thing is, several years later, I found the same magazine again and asked my dad if he remembered. He looked at the article and told me "Ahhh, that one. Course I do. You know, between us, I would have bought you that game but then your mum would have propably kicked my ass right out the door." That´s why I still remeber this game I never got quite fondly.
