  1. Overall, the controls respond well and the actions are done very well.
  2. The animation is truly a sight to behold. Jack almost moves as he would in the cartoon. Even the sword slashes move like they do sometimes on the shows.
  3. While I have to quibble about the juming controls being clunky; the action is well-paced, the graphics match the cartoon in lively colors and interesting layout, the story is respectable, and the sound is a nice touch. [Feb 2003, p.110]
  4. A cartoon as cool and stylized as Samurai Jack deserves a game to match, and Virtucraft Studios deliver. [May 2003, p.63]
  5. Jumping across wide gaps can be difficult because of the angular shapes of the game's platforms. [Feb 2003, p.158]
  6. 60
    This game isn't a bad little adventure if you're an avid watcher of the Cartoon Network series, or if you just want to hack and slash some futuristic evil; but just be prepared to fight with the controls, and don't expect the most intense action, either.

    Samurai Jack is neck-and-neck with "E.T." for the Atari 2600. [Apr 2003, p.61]
