  • Excerpt: Have you ever seen a bullet split down its center by a sword? You will if you watch the introductory video to Samurai Western. You'll see a lone warrior stand up against a town full of angry drifters, too, and watch as black silhouettes touched with oily light dance against a blood-red background.

  • Excerpt: I wish I liked this more than I do. It's got all the ingredients for a distinctly awesome game, except for gameplay. Samurai Western has got plenty of style, the graphics are okay, and it would make a truly awesome anime, but it gets old fast.

  • Excerpt: Samurai are cool, and so are cowboys and the Wild West. I'm a big fan of both elements. But, with such great material to work with, why is it so impossible to combine the two successfully?

Repetitive jumping and slashing in the Wild West.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that players advance by killing everyone in their path and that blood shoots from bodies in fountains (although blood can be turned off). Also, it features overt stereotypes, including the main character, identified by his distinctive dress and heavy accent.

Samurai Western

Just RPG

  • Excerpt: Samurai Western is a bit of an underground title that didn’t really pull in much hype upon release. Of course, it’s not every day you come across a samurai hack n' slash set in the old West.

  • Excerpt: In the case of Samurai Western, don't judge a book by its cover. While the story of a Samurai in the old west may sound a tad strange, it'll be instantly forgotten once you get immersed into the frantic and stylish action the game has to offer.

  • Excerpt: The third iteration of the Way of the Samurai series is Samurai Western, a stylish, hack-n-slash romp through ghost towns and saloons. It has the action, but can the Wasabi Western satisfy like a fine chop-socky chili?
  • Pros: ups: Hack-n-slash fun, stylized
  • Cons: downs: Short, shoddy story, lacks polish
