greetings to all whom hast cast there attention to thine review. Thy hope it will be helpful.
as a long time fan of the samurai jack cartoon series this game has a similar concept.
However at times game play can become arduous when trying to do certain missons, levels have no check point so when you die your sent back to the start of the level. Jumping from one ledge to another is difficult in certain areas for you have to be very precise. unfortunately the games progress cannot be saved on the wii regardless of memory card. (I've tried) however when i saved it on the gamecube I had no problems.
nevertheless the fighting sequences make up for some its flaws. it has a sort of matrix vibe when executing sakai mode. unfortunately unlike the series oil does not spout from the robots in large pools, whether this is recommended for younger audiences I'm not certain. The bonus is fighting mad-jack, the only real difficult boss (hard mode) and seeing as well as fighting the over zealous Scotsman while short is humorous just as it was in the series.
the final show down with aku was disappointing, even on hard mode the boss was easy. but the finial cut-scene almost made up for it.
the sellers of this product "no money honey" i would recommend for the fast delivery.
all in all the game isn't that bad but could have been improved a great deal.
