Samurai II: Vengeance is a sharp, stylish action game that could use more diverse level design, but is undeniably entertaining.

I always take iOS ports with a certain degree of expectation, or perhaps a lack of expectation. Having no previous experience with the game, or the original, I was pleasantly surprised with the graphics and gameplay. It's still a casual game, and a short game, but it's a fun one and worth your time if you're looking for a light title with a quick story and some katana fueled action. For under $10 It won't test your skills much, but it will provide you with several hours of fun.

Samurai II: Vengeance visuals may impress, but the gameplay is roundly unimpressive. While there are definitely improvements, the combat system needs to be entirely overhauled. MADFINGER Games have an improved product here, but still have a long way to go to having a great game.

That verdict also goes for Samurai II: Vengeance, a mêlée fighter that casts you as a pissed-off samurai, with all the decapitations and splattery disembowelments that entails. The game is set in a soft-edged, verdant vision of Japan that draws inspiration from Capcom’s Ōkami and from modern manga. (One nice touch: Sound effects like a windmill’s “clack” are animated with spelled-out onomatopoeia.) The enemy onslaught is intense from the outset, which might be more tolerable if Samurai II could be played with hard buttons. Instead, players are forced to aim for the same smear of finger oil on a glass screen, with no tactile feedback. As a result, missed hits abound. The next Samurai game would do well to compensate for this imprecision…

Expurgé de quelques bugs très gênants, de soucis de maniabilité et d'une construction beaucoup trop limitée, Samurai II : Vengeance aurait sans doute pu prétendre au titre de meilleur beat'em all sur Androïd. En l'état, il nous reste tout de même un chouette petit jeu très agréable à l'oeil, peu ambitieux mais suffisamment maîtrisé pour nous faire passer un bon moment.
