Summary: So many great Beo Geo Arcade collections on the Wii that this is a must buy. You see Neo Geo on the Wili you buy it people. This game works best with a arcade stick not only because it is a arcade port but most fighting games lose some of their spirt when up you use console controllers.
I love this game collection. Great for old school 2d fighting game lovers!

Summary: The fact that you have exactly 6 full games in the series on one disc is a great value. The 6th one of the series is released for the first time in North America on this compilation disc which is a real nice treat! The games respond like the old arcade days, and I would love to play these games with a arcade stick.
Summary: Fun! What more can I say? I didn't get to catch up much on this series back in the day. I played 1 & 2 in the arcade, and the original on the SNES. I also owned Samurai Showdown 3 on the Playstation. After that, I didn't play any of the games, so it's cool to see those in action. I don't think this is everybody's cup of tea, and it's not exactly Street Fighter, but the gameplay mechanics are different and interesting and the art is beautiful, so if you're looking for...
Summary: What can I say. Do you like Samurai Shodown?? Do you own a Wii?? Then don't hesitate and get this gem, where you can play throught Samurai Shodown 1 to 6, with lots of customizations, options and game modes. It's the ULTIMATE Samurai Shodown collection.
Summary: Title says it all. Six classic fighters for less than twenty bux can't be beat! I gave it 4-stars because it's not my cup of tea. You really need patience since the gameplay's S-L-O-W-! If you appreciate that type of fighting game then you'll love this anthology!
Summary: SNK's weapon-based fighter, Samurai Showdown (aka Samurai Spirits in Japan), hasn't aged well over the years. The first five games included in this collection look and sound REALLY dated, and the controls are unforgiving compared to more recent 2D fighters. The saving grace here is "Samurai Showdown 6", which successfully modernizes the series.
