Katsuro - Path of Honor is a text based online RPG (Role Playing Game). Play as a Samurai in the troubled Ishimo Empire, fighting to save it from the forces of darkness, thus returning it to peace and prosperity.

With static graphical interfaces, this is a game with no action at all. You aim is to build up your character's statistics, but completing various training tasks, missions and expeditions. All of these are completed automatically - you success is determined by your statistics. In battles, you simple watch as a timer counts down, and your Samurai "fights" you enemy.

You can take easier options, and build up experience and gold slowly, or take risks for greater possible rewards. That's the basis of this game - making judgments about whether you can complete a task or not. Katsuro - Path of Honor is not a very accessible game. While you are guided a little, it's difficult to comprehend for a novice, which can be very frustrating. The help section of the site is awful, and doesn't answer basic questions (for example how to fight).

The tasks, missions and so on are essentially the same - you have to wait some time, often 10 minutes, after which clicking on a link completes the task. It's all pretty dull, and unfortunately the text is really dry, and your motivation to continue has nothing to do with the absent story line. While you can name your character, and write your own biography, there is no visual personalization available.

Katsuro - Path of Honor is for hardcore fans of statistic based role playing games only.
