We have been seeing a lot of Samurai Shodown videos as many lucky fans posted there time with the game, there reaction to new videos or SNK posting new continent themselves. This has lead to a mix reaction of sorts.
While the new graphics are praised by some others seem to dislike. Oddly enough it is because of the same thing both groups mention as SS look is resembling of Street Fighter 4. This is okay to some as it still feels different enough to be separate from Capcom return to the fighting genre other say it is enough. As you saw with my post from MMcafe reaction many feel as though the game deserve its own art style.
Gameplay is something people are noticing and you should take note too. As Max talks about in his video on the game it is high risk high reward. With current fighting games we have gotten combo heavy having many hits rank up the number as the flash moves keep going. The thing is though these moves damage are slowly scaled down. How much so depends on the game. This is different with Samurai Shodown as there are combos but compared to its fellow fighting games they are short but savage in the damage department.
I also heard of down sides as we have only 13 character for the starting roaster of the game with 3 DLC planned at the moment. Most games 1v1 have small roosters so this I okay. the question is who is in and who is out. With the game taking place before the first one story but technically the 5th in the series we will see returning characters and some new face the same way we did with Soul Calibur VI as a source of comparison. So far we have returning veterains but when we do get some new blood I will let you know.
I will post reactions below.
As always thank you for reading.
