- Review: Samurai Shodown Sen
Samurai Shodown Sen is a distinctly lacklustre beat 'em up with depressingly shoddy graphics, characterised by muddy textures and dull environments, which would have looked out of date years ago. However, far more unforgiveable is the shoddy action. Combat feels sluggish and clunky and performing combos is actually painful. It's definitely one to avoid if you are looking for a single player brawler but when it comes to the multiplayer action, Samurai Shodown Sen just about gets away with it. A friend playing against you doesn't enjoy the same unfair advantages of an AI opponent and multiplayer fights come with a pleasing gory surprise. At full price there is no way I could recommend this game but at less than a tenner it might be worth a punt. Thanks to Stegoroth at Hotukdeals!
