  1. When you have something that's this cool to start with, even a fairly average gameplay experience is enough to hold the torch.
  2. The graphics are both faithful to the source material and overly primitive, but the main problems with Samurai Jack are its short duration and solid, but too basic, gameplay. [May 2004, p.32]
  3. It actually plays out like a very simplistic alternative to Legend Of Zelda, with doors opening once certain enemies are killed, or special keys found to open doors.
