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

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

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.

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

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

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

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.

The frenetic Samurai Gunn provides an exciting competitive experience that demands precision and rewards fast fingers and thoughtful strategies.
