samurai_jazz reviews and comments

At first we could say that this game is ugly with a non-existent story. Yes this is the case, it resemble to the games of the Atari 2600 but to the good games of this console. In fact, if we go beyond the graphics (which plunges us anyway in the universe) we will realize that it will be necessary to use a certain skill to cross the different levels. It's a die and retry and as much tell you right away you're going to die often but you'll still want to retry. Here are no backups or power items. 4 keys to remember (besides I recommend the game to the controller because the keys on PC are very poorly thought and you can not change them). To win without too much difficulty you will need perfect reflexes and a knowledge of the paterns of the enemies. The life span depends on your skill and level of difficulty, however the first Act (5 in all) has kept me in suspense for at least an hour and a half so it's not obvious at first. The soundtrack is nice even if we are far from calling it Jazz (I had taken the game only for that at the beginning). To summarize this game is a good surprise if you are attracted to the oldschool-challenge side and then for less than a euro it is well worth the shot. Do not take the latest iPhone app, opt for this game that will make you Rager but that will bring you great satisfaction in the victory;)

Already with the title (Totally lowercase and a low hyphen as a separator) the tragedy was chewed. I Didn't expect too much from this game and, actually, I wasn't misguided. It is True that only a developer has created it, and that surely that has enough merit and will have required a lot of effort and hours of dedication, but despite having that in mind, the game has too many bugs to recommend it. Graphically it has a rather loose quality, and the movements to run of our character are anything but accomplished. The music, simply forgettable. Perhaps the strong point could have been in the history and the gameplay, but I regret to say that neither are shown to a level too high either. In fact, the level is low. The story is simple, with comments scattered with droppers and without much grace, which give the feeling of being placed without desire and simply to fill. The gameplay is scarce. Pretty poor Handling of the character that will make you die again and again in the attempt to move from one room to another. The puzzles, simple and repetitive. And there is no saving system, so from the beginning you can indicate which of the 5 nveles you want to start. In Short, I find it hard to give a reason why someone could enjoy this title. I Simply consider the difficulty I understand is meant for a single person to get a game with a high quality level. Despite that, don't buy it, it's not worth it. NOTE: 4/10
