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.
While the games graphics manage to capture the look and visual style of the show, the stiff controls, redundant action, and frustratingly lousy collision detection ultimately sour the experience. Simply put, Samurai Jack is just no fun.
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]
