Product Description

Product Description

In the midst of chaos and upheaval, the Lord of Amori-han bravely chooses to raise an orphaned European princess as his own daughter. This brave young girl, Suzuhime, matures to become a warrior representing both East and West. The insidious Golba, a veteran of the U.S. Revolutionary War, ranks paramount among her foes, and a cadre of like-minded fighters flock to Japan to halt his dark plans for global domination. Familiar faces from past Samurai Shodown games (including Haohmaru, Nakoruru, and Ukyo) battle alongside newcomers from all corners of the Earth to put an end to Golba’s villainous designs. Victory on this crucial conflict comes by any means necessary even if it means ending a melee with grisly dismemberment or decapitations. Celebrate the 17th anniversary of SNK Playmore’s revered weapons-based fighting franchise with the most brutal and visceral Samurai Shodown installment ever produced – Samurai Shodown Sen. Set in 1791 during the twilight days of Japan’s feudal Edo period, this latest iteration reveals a society on the brink of collapse, as encroaching Western influences threaten to overrun the ancient, once-hidden culture of lords, serfs, and samurai. Impressive 3D visuals, huge roster of new and returning fighters, brutal finishing moves and online play and leaderboards via Xbox Live complete the series’ much anticipated rebirth on a next-gen platform.

Amazon.com

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Just got the game last week!

Impressions - It's a decent fighting game. You got a nice roster of 24 characters (many familiar Sam Shodown faces make their return) + 2 unlockables (Big Boss and Boss before Big Boss) and the usual variety of SNK (lol) fighting modes.

Combat seems to be both good and bad. Simple enough for anyone to get into and I don't see anything horribly unbalanced except for the second to last boss who uses a gun (when everyone is using swords you can obviously see the disadvantage here) but that's typical SNK cheap fashion for you. It's bad in the sense it doesn't entirely feel like a Sam Shodown game and more of a Tekken/Soul Calibur hybrid. Also, the heavy slash does do a stupid amount of damage yet at the same time leaves you wide open which I believe is pretty fair. Also, for some reason the standard throw in the game is the exact same for every single character in the game. That's not to say Hanzo doesn't have his own unique throws, because he does and they are pretty cool.

The single player consist of - A Story mode where you go through 7 fights including your everyday Big Boss, you get a explanation of what each character is going through via text and a Japanese voice over for that text.

Practice (Where you practice your moves of course!)

VS (Play against the CPU or your fortunate friend sitting next to you, or perhaps unfortunate?)

Survival (Keep doing till you lose. I believe theres an achievement for beating 23 people or more without dying.)

Online is pretty basic. For some reason theres a Party Chat option yet I believe the matches are only 1v1 with no group fighting (though I could be wrong, need more friends with the game to test this!).

1.0 out of 5 stars SNK Brutalizes Another Great Potent Fighting Game January 13, 2011
By Buddy
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
When I saw this game for only 9.99 at Best Buy. I thought to myself, "Oh gosh! That's a steal! I have to get the game!"
When I got home, I was excited to play one of my very favorite SNK fighting games. It wasn't long until I realized this game wasn't even worth 99 cents. They changed ALL the gameplay.

They tried to make some hybrid born of Soul Calibur + Mortal Kombat. The mix didn't work. The graphics, music/sounds and everything are fine.

The only thing I can't stand is the gameplay. I was expecting to play Samurai Shodown, not a cheap quality version mix of Mortal Kombat + Soul Calibur. As soon as I saw heads flying off and blood squirting out of dead bodies, it just killed it for me.

I would much rather play Mortal Kombat or Soul Calibur itself. (This game sucks in contrast to Mortal Kombat & Soul Calibur, but it has most similarities from both titles in terms of some game play.)

Don't waste your money on this title. Just go to the PSN or XBL markets and download the Samurai Shodown classics available. This latest title is a piece of #*$&.

Did I mention you can win a fight in just three hits of the RB button? I'm very disappointed and have learned my lesson from listening to other customer reviews. I should have listened. Everyone else should too.

Trust the customer reviews on this game.

1.0 out of 5 stars A soulcalibur clone instead staying true to its roots. February 25, 2015
The bad
The gameplay
The game plays as a soulcalibur clone instead of playing as the 2d side scroll fighter. A 3d fighter. With soulcalibur s parry system in it as well.

The art style is abandoned in the 3d renders that were in samurai showdown 1-6. Appearance is the all to common realism.

The game has lost its identity of being a better known 2d fighter. Being a soul calibur clone is a sad decision, snk.

Conclusion
Any good snk fan will hate this game for abandoning its identity and just being clone of something its not. Hopefully snk learns from this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small budget, but big on gameplay traditions April 11, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had high hopes for Samurai Shodown Sen when I picked it up, took it home, and started running it on my XBox360.

The presentation overall is smooth, if not a bit simplified in most aspects. And surprisingly, the music adds the right tension and atmosphere for the stages, while the graphics are somewhat last-gen looking; and yet, the character models and backgrounds...still look respectably sharp from those attempts. The character selection is nice and large, with diverse fighting styles and personalities. A good handful of retro choices and a generous helping of newcomers makes this a more notable Samurai Shodown in the interesting character lineup.

The online functions great, but lacks a community, which is sad considering how well the game's mechanics and online functionality are balanced and consistent. Looking beneath the presentation, the gameplay is a more move/combo-oriented style, much like hardcore fighting games of the past. The combat is a lot of fun: with diverse combo and counter lists, decapitations and desperation strikes; some of them even act as a few little tricks for dramatic effect (so it definitely has enough flexibility, and requires practice to master the combat system).

The story mode doesn't offer much excitement unfortunately, but makes for a good way to pass the time while waiting for matches online. A few of the plotlines are interesting, but the narration is a real rough translation sometimes. This game includes survival mode, and pretty difficult achievements, but plenty of gameplay hours if you enjoy the fighting system and character selection.

With an online community, this would be a great pickup. Although, it did just come out a short time before this review, so maybe that will take time to change.

Otherwise, have some friends to play with in versus mode, and you have a recommended title for old-school Samurai Shodown fans.
