Samurai Shodown Sen Review
I know there was a Samurai Shodown Sen thread somewhere and the game has been out for a while, but I figured I'd make a new one as I recently bought this game (bargain price, wouldn't pay full price for it, no way!). Now the dust has settled a bit, what are peoples impressions of this game, and is anyone interested in reading a review of it? After I have had a bit more playtime on it I might post some of my impressions on it, it's been a long time since I last wrote anything so it would be nice to! Just a shame it won't be on a better game than this... I bought it really because I am a big Samurai Shodown fan and because the price had dropped so much I didn't mind. I wasn't expecting much though. Roll Eyes

Anyone else actually bother with it?

It might be nice to have a review of this game on the site, just like one for Samurai Spitits Tenkaichi Kenkakuden/ Samurai Shodown 6. I'm not the right person to write a review for Samurai Spirits Sen because I played the game a couple of years ago in Japan and since that I have never played it again.
I do remember that I thought it was a crap game, that had uninspired gameplay (lots of juggling) and that it looked very dated compared to the other 3D fighters that were out around that time. Basically it was an extremely boring game, I think I didn't even finish my credit and just abandoned the game after 3 fights.
My arcade stuff

This amount of copypaste from overall impressions and reviews from multiple forums should help:
Thanks, that's interesting reading Black Shroud Smile

Must say, I am struggling to really like this game at all. I didn't expect much and haven't been disappointed so far...

Well, maybe this would help gameplay-wise
Anyway, if you got the game maybe you could post descriptions of attacks/special moves in the game (especially for stuff like Claude's "Trance" ). Since this game has moves with commands of normals that may look like specials and vice versa, I have a hard time separating these to fill lists of Sen special moves in character sections on my site.

Another thing I wondered about, in arcade version Sogetsu seemed to have 5-hit "teleport & slash" special move, but recently I saw a video with him doing 15-hit version of that, with screen turning black. I wonder if its some upgraded version, or they simply updated that move while porting the game to console.

Well, I also got this too, but only for a week. Even though it plays similarly to SoulCalibur and not have anything that the previous games had (Specials/Supers/Etc.), to me its just good and all at a bargain price and for the online, but only if your playing with a friend, the online is always a ghost town. (As well as any SNK game on the 360 from time to time.)
Played it when it came out in arcades in Japan and was immediately disappointed. I too think I left my quarter in the machine. Heh, I think a review would be nice just to see you tear into it, Kaz.
If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.
I'd like to read your review on it Kaz, just to see what you REALLY think! Don't hold back now... Angry Grin

in contrast to the perhaps more negative aspects of this discussion, is ANYBODY interested in grabbing Samurai Shodown Sen (PAL Ver.) for themselves on the cheap?

ZAVVI have got it on offer at the moment for only 4.85 w/FREE p+p! That's ONLY a fiver!!
Hell, if I had a 360 I know I'd grab it JUST to try it for myself...

Here's the link if anyone IS interested:

I've seen reviews of this game and that scared the hell out of buying it. I'm a BIG fan of The Samurai Shodown series and LOVE Samurai Shodown II and IV especially.

It would be cool with a review of this game if someone would dig into it. Maybe it's not as bad as people say? I hope so..
