Samurai Gunn is an excellent example of how games can do more with less. Its combat is deceptively simple, there are no character advantages, and the tight, dangerous environments each feel unique.
Samurai Gunn will no doubt have a more limited audience due to a lack of modes, but for those of you who appreciate a deep fighting game, you'll get hours of competitive entertainment out of it.
Samurai Gunn’s genius lies in its dizzying speed. It condenses organic, balletic setpieces worthy of an action flick finale into mere seconds.
Samurai Gunn revels in its own simplicity. The selectable characters are identical save for their outward appearance, and there are only a handful of moves in your repertoire. There are no unlockable skills, no stages to earn, or any other distractions.
Samurai Gunn's gameplay values precision, but that same value hasn't carried over to its overall production. It feels every bit like a work-in-progress. A fighting game has to be pixel perfect to successfully reward patience and strategy. Samurai Gunn just isn't there yet.
