Dec 8, 2022Samurai Maiden is an action title boasting conceptually sound ideas that grievously fall flat due to poor optimization, rigid movement, unnecessarily high enemy numbers, and artificial difficulty by extension. The replayability offered by greater difficulty modes is rendered moot. Granted, exploring the stages for collectibles and platforming can be enjoyable. The cast is pleasing to see converse and bond, too. Still, the lacking narrative and gameplay-related drawbacks significantly hamper the experience. At one point in development, there was a promising time to be had here, but it’s been mired by severe faults.
Dec 8, 2022SAMURAI MAIDEN mixes two completely opposite genres (action and visual novel) and fails to excel in either one. It is a weak, boring game with awful graphics, bad music, unresponsive controls and a monotonous story. The character models are very nice and the action is a little pleasing after evolving a lot and unlocking different moves, but it's not worth it.

There is a black void when you pause the game and in photo mode to prevent panty shots, and you are prevented from zooming in too close to the characters in photo mode.
The translation is censored as well, throughout the entire game. Terms like "高校生" (high school student) are translated as "Gen Z" and as "21st Century Woman." There is even an entire conversation about "Gen Z," "Gen X," "Millennials," and "Boomers" that's not in the original Japanese, which has gotten a lot of attention due to how cringy it is.
The gameplay is slow and feels sluggish. The visual novel segments drag on forever. The PS5 version somehow has performance issues, which is an impressive feat given that it is not exactly at the cutting edge of graphics. The music is solid, but it's not enough to make up for the fact that the game is lacking in pretty much every other aspect.… Full Review »
