    This looks ok but I was hoping for something more like more blood but it is a kids game so I guess it has to be that way but I still would buy it.

    I have to say I finished it in 2 and a half days, which many might consider short. I did play pretty much all day yesterday and today though. I loved it. I'm a huge SJ fan and this was the perfect game for me. Worth checking out for all SJ fans.

  1. When you have something that's this cool to start with, even a fairly average gameplay experience is enough to hold the torch.

    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.
