Sengoku - Game of the Week
I'll be honest, I have a soft spot for 2D beat 'em ups. And when I hear of one I'll check it out. I've played some of the best and worst, but even the bad ones are kinda entertaining, cause I'll always atleast play thru them once to see how much worse it could get lol.
I will say I enjoy the Sengoku series and for the most part agreed with Kazuya's review then and now. (I was always checking and kazuya's reviews from back in the day) The samurai cowboy thing was always kinda weird, which Sengoku 3 completely removed the cowboy aspect, but is by far the best of the series... Coincidence?
Sorry fellas, i must admit that i find this game to be mind numbingly boring.

I think there's something wrong with me because "Beat Em Ups" don't really satisfy me in general anymore.
I've tried to play this game more this week, oh how I have tried... but I just can't get into it at all. I think like most of SNK's side scrollers, it really doesn't hold a candle to Capcom's best, or even some of Capcom's more average ones. We can all talk about how we prefer SNK's one on one fighters, but this is definitely an area where Capcom had the upper hand, beyond any shadow of a doubt.

I feel like I need to go play Cadillacs and Dino's or AVP for a while to remind myself of how these games should be done. Hate to sound harsh towards SNK, but it's true unfortunately.

I'd agree with everything Shiny said pretty much. The only thing that I've never been a big fan of with SNK is their lack of truly great side scrolling beat em ups. Capcom have made so many great ones, whereas SNK's have generally been a bit average in comparison (Sengoku 3 is probably my fave by a fair way). The ones Shiny mentioned are decent though, in fact I have a feeling I should probably re-review those as I never gave them enough of a chance back when I originally revewed them years ago.

Welcome to the site anyways LIFE_IN_2D... love the sig btw Smile

Welcome aboard LIFE_IN_2D! Grin

I think the Sengoku is okay, but it's been bettered by it's 2 sequels. I highly recommend anyone new to the series checking out Sengoku 2 as it's much better. And it has far more ideas than Sengoku 3, which looks awesome but just doesn't hold my attention in the way that the second one does.

If it's a Neo scrolling beat 'em up you're after imo the best would have to be Sengoku 2, Robo Army, and the criminally over-looked Mutation Nation.

Thanks for the welcome, both of you. Since then I've played Sengoku I must say it was actually fun, although I'd rather play Capcom beat'em ups, Snk sure does have some pretty cheesey/weird ones out (like mutation nation), but I like them . I have yet to beat Sengoku, but I plann to after I take my midterms.
