Download ONI PC Game 2001
Approximately three years ago, game developers realized that the unexpected success of the Tomb Raider series could be combined with the action of the console hit Goldeneye to create a new genre of game - the third-person action game. This new genre promised to take the tired first-person games into new territories. Developers envisioned John Woo two-fisted shooting with Jackie Chan jumps and rolls, all made possible through the use of a third-person perspective. Thus, Oni was conceived and born to bridge the gap between action and adventure.
Oni features a futuristic cop named Konoko - you know that already. You won't know that she is supposed to single-handedly defeat the evil forces of chaos and destruction... unless you've ever played computer games before. You also won't know that she runs around warehouses stacked full of crates for the better part of the game... unless you've played the demo. You probably know that Oni is inspired by Japanese anime-style artwork. What you don't know is that there is only one cut-scene in the whole game that pays tribute to this. You also won't know how terribly tedious this game becomes in the later parts.
It is important to inform you up-front that Oni doesn't allow the player to save the game in progress. Instead, Oni notifies you that it has saved the game at various pre-determined points. On the plus side, you won't have to worry about forgetting to save your game. On the downside, the entirety of the game implodes because of this deliberate design flaw. The developers have chosen to build a game that relies too much on the console model rather than take advantage of the unique features of the PC; this is important because the rest of the game is irrevocably tainted by this design paradigm, as you will soon understand.
The most innovative feature of Oni is undoubtedly the hand-to-hand combat system. The third-person perspective allows the player to battle enemies with fluidity and grace. It's almost like playing Street Fighter from a Tomb Raider-esque perspective in that you can execute Hollywood style punches, kicks and throws with relative ease. In that respect, this is one truly innovative game.
This hand-to-hand combat innovation comes at a price. The game obviously showcases Konoko's advanced martial arts skills at the expense of other more traditional perks, such as cool weapons. New combat moves occasionally become available, so as you progress through the game, Konoko becomes more lethal. New combination attacks make Konoko more fun to watch and to play. Of course, if you are just now learning to use the WASD layout, these new moves may not be that easy to learn. Even players that practice these moves won't always find them useful. In later levels, when surrounded by four thugs and one on the rafters shooting at you, there is little time to execute any combination move or throw an opponent. That leaves only two choices: click the mouse with all the fury in your fingers or pull out a gun.
To be quite honest, you're better off without a gun. At least, that's what Bungie has decided. This is the first game that actually encourages players to ignore guns and other ranged weapons in favor of the less efficient five punches, three kicks and a jumping stomp. It appears there was one mandate when the level designers went to work: no ammo; no health; no guns. Compared with the very fun Heavy Metal: FAKK2, which allowed two-fisted gunfights and a variety of cool weapons, Oni features only two useful guns - the basic, inaccurate machine pistol and the rocket-launcher-like plasma rifle. The machine pistol is quite good for taking out a bad guy at close range but only holds enough ammo for one kill. The plasma rifle is quite difficult to use against moving targets but compensates with an extended range. Sadly, it too holds only enough ammunition for a single kill.
Though this isn't much of a hindrance during the early stages of the game, it becomes a critical flaw later on. Keep in mind that you can't save the game. Now add the fact that sometimes you can't complete a level unless you die. That's right - you need to die and restart to finish the level. I found two broken levels that couldn't be completed until I restarted. The first game that punishes you for not dying.
Heck, for that matter, the game punishes you for finishing a level. Even if you hoard your hypos (health packs) and your ammunition, it is all taken away from you when you start a new level. They send poor Konoko to take on a platoon of bad guys but don't even bother to give her a gun, ammunition, a hypo or even a force shield - even though I finished the previous level relatively quite well equipped. I played by their rules and fought with my fists instead of my gun. I stealthily avoided confrontation when possible to conserve my hypos and health and then had all of it taken away from me.
In the later parts of the game - the parts that may take 20-30 minutes to complete (without a save game feature), you will face up to five thugs at once. This wouldn't be so bad if you could take out two or three from a distance, or even if you could whip out the pistol and shoot your way through a tough area. Combine this impossible situation with the fact that you'll probably have to replay this level 5-10 times and the game suddenly doesn't seem like that much fun.
Considering all the work that went into the game engine, the level design appears rather elementary. If you've played the demo, then you've seen a typical level - sparse, barren, boring and square. I haven't seen this many right angles since Doom. The levels are among the least memorable of any action game in the past couple of years. Compared with Heavy Metal: FAKK2, Tomb Raider and Quake III, these levels don't come across as the work of paid professionals. The entire game -- yes, the entire game -- consists of running from room to room looking for a computer to unlock the next door. No inventive or ingenious solutions such as flooding a room and swimming out a ventilation shaft or jumping on a conveyer belt to take a shortcut around the bad guys. You can envision the line of thinking: "Obtuse angles get in the way of her punching and kicking. Caves and castles get in the way of that, too. We need warehouses to maximize the hand-to-hand combat potential. Get rid of that ammo and add another unarmed soldier for Konoko to fistfight. Perfect. Do that again for all 19 levels."
On the positive side, the character animations are among the best in any game. Konoko doesn't simply run, she runs like an anime character - leaning far forward with sharp accentuated movements exactly as expected. Konoko's combat moves are fluid and smooth without any unrealistic snapping and warping. The audio is quite good and the music score fits perfectly with the game. Graphics performance ranks among the best for smooth framerates and consistent performance.
Oni sells itself as an innovative action game featuring hand-to-hand combat. In those words, the game succeeds. But Oni also sells itself as fun. To say that Oni succeeds in this attempt would be an overstatement, for the developers threw too many kinks into the equation and they just don't add up. Oni would be an above-average game if Bungie hadn't blown the in-game save feature. That one decision, though not fatal in itself, becomes critical when combined with the ever-increasing difficulty and the overt bias against guns, ammo and health. A patch could help turn the game around, but don't hold your breath -- Bungie's primary focus on consoles is evidenced by the entire design of Oni.

A major modding and patching framework for Oni, it allows users to download, install and create mods for Oni. It also fixes many bugs left untouched by the original developers and adds modern Windows and Intel Mac support (macOS 10.14 and earlier). It can be found at _Edition.
A rebuild of the game application which provides modern Windows support (Mac version coming later). As of v1.0, it provides only vanilla game behavior with no bug fixes except those needed to run the game on modern machines. Being a simple EXE, it is far faster to install than the Anniversary Edition but will not provide patches, mods or auto-updates like the AE does. It can be found at
Oni is a third-person action video game developed by Bungie West, a division of Bungie, and published by Take-Two Interactive. 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.
The events of Oni take place in or after the year 2032. In the game, Earth is so polluted that little of it remains habitable. To solve international economic crises, all nations have combined into a single entity, the World Coalition Government. The government is totalitarian, telling the populace that what are actually dangerously toxic regions are wilderness preserves, and uses its police forces, the Technological Crimes Task Force (TCTF), to suppress opposition. The player character, code-named Konoko (voiced by Amanda Winn-Lee), full name later given as Mai Hasegawa, begins the game working for the TCTF. Soon, she learns her employers have been keeping secrets about her past from her. She turns against them as she embarks on a quest of self-discovery. The player learns more about her family and origins while battling both the TCTF and its greatest enemy, the equally monolithic criminal organization called the Syndicate. In the game's climax, Konoko discovers a Syndicate plan to cause the Atmospheric Conversion Centers, air-treatment plants necessary to keep most of the world's population alive, to catastrophically malfunction. She is partially successful in thwarting the plot, saving a portion of humanity. 041b061a72
