Seeing as how I live in the place where it all began, it shouldn't have been too hard to find one. But it's friggin impossible! Help me out, I'm looking for a daikatana (a Japanese curved sword, looks like a katana but is at least 10'' longer). I want one that is within a reasonable price range. Say 20,000 yen ($200) and below. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you play it, or did you read the reviews?

The whole media was biased against Romero at the time, therefore making 90% of the reviews worthless and negative (True statistic).

You should buy the game, then see if you hate it. It is actually a great game. It has a beautiful musical score, great levels, a deep, engrossing plot, frantic gameplay, and the most diversive weapons you will ever see in a game (Such as The Discus of Deadalus, which is a razor sharp frizbee, the C4 Launcher, and the Daikatana). It also has a leveling system, kind of like an RPG. The first level is garbage, but once you get past it, it becomes your new love affair.

It's only $1.99, so buy it! You won't be disappointed.

Just be sure to patch it before you play it, or it will crash under XP/2003.

Now that I have that out of the way, Daikatana is Japanese for "big sword."

I have one of those in my pants.

i got daikatana in a magazine a year ago. You're probably right as i played for about 20 minutes. The graphics were dated (no shit), and the first episode was so freaking annoying so i just stopped and came to the conclusion that it sucked.

Actually, the first level is bad, but the rest of the first episode is great. I'm almost at the last part :p .
