addition to the standard versus and practice modes, the game offers a
twist in the form of Xbox Live support. This allows you to compete in a
variety of different modes including one-on-one against a single opponent,
or against a series of foes in a grand tournament online. This is a pretty
cool feature that adds a lot of replay value, and enhances the already
solid single player experience.
Conclusion: If I was limited to one word that described Samurai Shodown V , it would have to be unique. From the character designs, to amazingly thematic music, and unique twist on combat, this is a 2D fighting series that may not have gotten the crappy Hollywood movie like some other games in this genre, but it deserved a look then and warrants one now.
