    Sure, it's better looking and slightly more entertaining to play than any of the similar games that have come out in recent years, but it's still painfully formulaic and completely uninspired.

    Shallow, mindless hack-and-slash action makes this a crushingly tedious slog through an anachronistic version of 16th-century Japan.

    This is one of the most fun and easy to pickup whup-ass beat-em-up games for the Wii! While it has an element of "history" to it, the historyThis is one of the most fun and easy to pickup whup-ass beat-em-up games for the Wii! While it has an element of "history" to it, the history doesn't get in the way of the crazy, whup ass, beat-up combos of damage you can do to hoards and hoards of enemies. While I played with it, I keep having this exciting feeling of "bring 'em on"! It's one of those games that make you feel like a real bad-ass. The key thing is simplicity that works with both an adult like me and my eldest son! The game play is all about doing much damage with as crazy combos - the excitement of achieving Super Basara Frenzy combos of up to 6000 hits without a break is just plain nuts. And super fun and exciting. I have only played 22% of my first character, Ieyasu. I am now just playing Saica to try a different style, and boy it's fun. Even though the map is similar with the different character, the gameplay and whup-ass combos are totally different, and feels fresh. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - don't listen to negative critics. You don't know what you're missing if you don't get this game. GET IT NOW, no regrets! I'll have hours and hours of fun! Full Review »
