Critic Reviews for KATANA KAMI: A Way of the Samurai Story

It's just not good enough for a game that revolves around loot and item management.

Katana Kami: A Way Of The Samurai Story attempts to bring back a beloved PS2 franchise with a new twist. However, its lackluster execution and heavy repetitiveness leaves very little excitement in its wake. Fans might find some appeal here, but only consider this game if you're looking for a repetitive and simplistic dungeon crawler.
