Hectic local multiplayer madness ensues in this punkish flurry of colour and violence.

Videogame reviews that fail at their description of the sublime often regress into a sort of buyer's guide. They tell you, in short, how far out of your way you should go for the game. But Samurai Gunn inspires just such a decree. If you don't have four controllers, a couch, and three friends yet, Samurai Gunn is a compelling case for making the investment.

Samurai Gunn's fast-paced combat is a ton of fun, but only if you can round up four friends.

An exciting, kinetic single-screen multiplayer with excellent level design, but little to reward the solo player.

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. Every time I play it I feel like I've mastered a new piece of the physics engine, or a new nuance to wall-jumping. It's one of those games that keeps on giving years later due to a solid foundation, so long as you have the company to enjoy it with.

Samurai Gunn is a prime example of doing more with less. It doesn't have to be over-complicated to be interesting. The great level design, accompanied by charming 8-bit style artwork, an incredible soundtrack and the fact that you need to be very quick-thinking and account for every centimetre of space, really make this a special game in its genre

Simple to pick up and play, the precise, tension-filled combat is capable of turning friends into bitter rivals.

Samurai Gunn is surprisingly deep and a lot of strategy is mixed in with twitch reflexes, much like a sophisticated fighting game. However, the lack of game modes, serious decrease in enjoyment as a solo game, and some technical issues hold back this otherwise immensely fun game. If you can grab a couple friends and get controllers working, Samurai Gunn can make for an enjoyable night.

Samurai Gunn could be a great local multiplayer game with a lot more polish
