What Gamespot Users have to say about Samurai Western

    Samurai Western is halfway decent, but has a lot of repetition

    Samurai Western looked cool. Which is why I rented it for a buck at Family Video. Because usually, cool looking stuff sucks. Samurai Western though, is a halfway decent game. One word describes this game more than a... Read Full Review

    Thumbs Down... way down

    The game is very attractive at the first stage(s) but the shine will soon disappear and you will get the urge of switching your PS2 off. You should only play this game if you can bear lame repeating dialogues, playing a... Read Full Review

    Got what it takes?

    Though this game isn't exactly the most pleasing graphics-wise, the gameplay and the challenge make it a game that you will be at for hours. It has a rather nifty accessorie portion of the game which effect the power of ... Read Full Review

    Could have been something great.

    I picked up Samurai Western a few months ago to give it a shot. While the idea of the game itself is very creative, the production of that idea comes up short in almost every way. The camera system is very cumbersome ... Read Full Review

    Still worth buying

    Even though Samurai Western is my least favorite of the "Way of the Samurai" series, I still insist that every fan should buy it. I would still import the game if it never came to our shores. There's something very stati... Read Full Review

    Strangely fun and addicting.

    Samurai Western is a fairly standard hack n' slash game. The graphics are not awful by any means, but nor are they at all impressive. The gameplay, while very simplistic and a bit too easy for its own good, is strangel... Read Full Review

    A game filled with samurai AND cowboys? How could it fail? Oh...that's how.

    From the company that brought gamers the unbelievably mediocre “Way of the Samurai” series now comes their latest entry into the samurai genre, “Samurai Western.” Don’t be fooled by the “samurai” in the title though, thi... Read Full Review

    Interesting and unique, but far from perfect.

    As a huge Hack’n’Slash fan, I couldn’t possibly resist playing this game. While I enjoyed this title for the most part, I must admit that it has it’s share of flaws. The setting is interesting, and the plot is solid eno... Read Full Review

    A fun cut em' up with some cool cutscenes and just a whole bunch of fun!!!

    Here could be one of the more underrated games of the year. The story, which is something right out of the old west is about a samurai on his quest for vengence. This is unlike most games you will play today. The setting... Read Full Review

    A fun game, but you may want to decide if your going to go straight for the finish, if so its a rental.

    Samurai western is a fun game. With the lack of Samurai games now a days its worth a look at. Gameplay - The gameplay in samurai western is what makes it what it is. Its very fast paced and action packed. Though ... Read Full Review
