If you purchase this game, get the downloadable version from the Playstation Network Store instead.

Summary: After reading the various reviews on how the load times were pretty bad on this PSP version, it took me a long time to finally get myself to purchase this game. After all, nobody wants to wait through terrible load times between having spectacular matches through various rounds. I saw this game was available on the Playstation Store on the Playstation Network on PS3.
Summary: With SNK's recent compilation releases of their various franchises, I've been anxiously waiting one featuring the Samurai Shodown games. Well, here we are finally. Samurai Shodown Anthology features Samurai Shodown's I-VI, with Samurai Shodown VI making its first appearance on the PS2 and PSP in North America. The games have been emulated well, and all play just as well as I remember them being.
Summary: I don't think anyone under 25 will like this, but if you loved SS in the arcades back in the day, you'll love this. Yes, the PS2 version does run much better, but if you need this on the go, this is as good as it's going to get. The two problems I have with the PSP version: 1.) Slowdown in 2 of the games on this disc (4 and 5 seem to be the worst offenders) 2.) Long loading times for SSVI.
