  1. Those who have been longing to complete their Samurai Shodown collection and its cast of legendary characters should pick this one up.
  2. 71
    So even though there are a few Samurai Shodowns on the Virtual Console, this is still the most robust, cost-effective option.
  3. Most of the Shodowns hold up today, but the bare bones presentation is disappointing. [Apr 2009, p.59]
  4. If you consider yourself to be a fighting game connoisseur, and you have like-minded friends that enjoy a good digital scrap, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this.
  5. The sheer number of characters and fighting styles on offer mean you'll be practicing it for months to come. [Apr 2009, p.87]
