    This game belongs on a SNK compilation disc with other classics like "Art of Fighting" and "World Heroes."
  2. Rumors about a U.S. release of "Samurai Shodown V Special," a more complete version of this game with more fully-realized fighters, have been making rounds at some forums. That might be worth waiting for, because this version certainly isn't. If you own "Samurai Shodown IV," this deserves no more than a rental.

    Making cardboard cutouts of samurais and taping them to your TV screen is more fun than playing this game. Try it. You'll see.
  4. 40
    In fact, this game serves as a great example of how wonderful the original games would be on the Xbox 360 Live Arcade service, at an even better price.
  5. If you aren't a fan of the series or haven't delved into the SS series in the past, chances are you won't take too kindly to the dated graphics and unbalanced gameplay.
  6. This game is so weak and poorly constructed that I can't imagine playing it online with real people would make it any better.
  7. A tutorial or "How to Play" movie would've gone a long way here. Instead newcomers are left fumbling in the dark, which tends to be more frustrating than fun.
