Summary

Pure Samurai Entertainment!

The Good

Deciding what kind of samurai will you be is great. Will a person of great personal honor, or will you assasinate and dishonor your rivals? I love the idea of getting married having children, and when your character becomes to old to continue, you take the role of your son.

The Bad

A complete lack of honor in the last section of the game. It seemed to be that the quickest to attack would become the winner.

The Bottom Line

Possibaly the greatest game of it's type, lightyears ahead of it's time. Enthralling and exciting, feels as if your creating history. Pure enjoyment on an EGA monitor.
