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: 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!
Not bad....if you haven't played these games before.

Summary: Wii owners, why is it that we are accepting old ported crap while PS3 & 360 owners get new games? Is it fair to pay $50 for a title or even $40? If you haven't played these games before, and want to enjoy them as others have in the past, or just want the collection for your Wii system, thats completely fine. I on the other hand want studios to actually put in some work on the stuff that we are paying $50 bucks on though. I want King of Fighters 12!
Summary: Let's get this out of the way first: Samurai Shodown Anthology isn't going to win any awards for ambition. Like most SNK compilations, it's a disappointingly bare-bones package, featuring Showdowns 1 through 6, move lists, a practice mode, a sound test (with, admittedly, interesting arranged versions of the soundtracks), a color edit mode that lets you change the characters' palettes, and an utterly uninteresting minigame where you tilt the Wii Remote in order to catch...
Summary: It's as good as I remember it from the arcades. Samurai Shodown from 1 to 6. It would be nicer if it had some sort of achievement system, also you can't use the game cube controller and the wiimote lacks of buttons, but you can use the classic controller and to custom the in-game characters it's really nice.
Summary: After a looong wait we finally get all 5 classic Samurai Shodowns + Samurai Shodown 6 (which was only released in JP) on 1 disc from SNK Playmore. Overall it's a *nearly Arcade perfect translation which includes an arranged / original BGM's, character color editor & Classic controller support all for a budget price. *Finishing moves in Samurai Showdown II were removed.
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 in America. The games have been emulated wonderfully, and all play just as well as I remember them being.
Excerpt: Eu sempre amei compilações de jogos antigos, e Samurai Shodown Anthology é uma das minhas favoritas, contendo alguns dos melhores jogos da minha serie de luta favorita e mais o SS 6 que era exclusivo do japão foi uma jogada excelente, e todos os jogos ainda são compatíveis com o controle de arcade do Wii o que torna a experiencia ainda mais autentica e ainda poder customizar a aparência dos lutadores em todos os jogos.
