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?
Conclusion: Compounding the problems with Samurai Western is that the game doesn’t look very good either. The environments severely lack detail, the animations are simplistic, and close-ups of various characters reveal a whole lot of blockiness. There is nothing about the title’s visuals that dazzle the eyes; it’s just bland, bland, bland.
