Samurai Shodown Sen | £4.99 | The Game Collection | Xbox 360

Samurai Shodown Sen broke free of its predecessor's fast, fun and fluid 2D mechanics to deliver a stolid and stodgy 3D experience. Whilst the powerful slash attacks add a new dimension to the combat - which is great fun in multiplayer thanks to seemingly random dismemberment and beheadings - the overall vibe is bland, clunky and slightly cheap. Samurai Shodown Sen was arguably obsolete as soon as it hit store shelves, and the singleplayer campaign is an unremitting grind thanks to the mid boss happening to own a gun. That's right. A gun. Prepare to embed your controller in a wall if you want to clear the story mode with each character...

Still, it's cheap and fun in multiplayer. I'd suggest mugging up on our full review before placing an order.
