Review: Way of the Samurai 4 for PS3 - GamerTell

 

More focused than other entries in the series, have a journal with ideas of what events should be happening next and hints of where to go, lots of main and side quests, story changes depending on actions, lots of clothing options, lots of attack...

No English voice acting, wish it were easier to find target locations – perhaps with an onscreen arrow, it’s easy to forget to pick up items during a battle and it’s easy to miss story events. The main story is really short. I didn’t really feel like I...

Way of the Samurai 4

 

From Acquire, XSEED and Spike, Way of the Samurai 4 takes place in a tiny port city of Amihama in the mid 1800's. The town is playing host to three different factions that you can ally yourself with. The Pranja, a group of xenophobes intent on pushing...

So you get this sword, right? You can hit anyone with it ; And you can wear cat ears, glasses and have a pipe while doing so ; And have a Fro? Sweet

It may be too silly or offensive because of suggestive turtle content ; Some graphics are not the best

There is a heck of a lot here. A lot of customization combined with branching stories, interesting characters and the ability to do nothing at all relevant to the story(stories) make for quite a trip. Well worth it if you like Japanese style games and...

The continuation of the Way of the Samurai franchise comes to us as Way of the Samurai 4 as a downloadable on the Playstation Network. While there

Way of the Samurai 4 is plain simple fun, but it is still fun! The game is challenging enough to keep you on your toes and the story mechanics have been great since the beginning of the franchise and keeps you coming back for more to see how...

Way of the Samurai 4 Review

 

Way of the Samurai 4 compensates for clunky mechanics with an enjoyable blend of soapy melodrama and irreverent humor.

Abundant silliness, both scripted and player-generated ; Multiple storylines reward replay

Klutzy combat ; Lots of menu navigation and loading screens ; Some things are never explained properly

Your first playthrough of Way of the Samurai 4 is disorienting, because the game doesn't do a great job of explaining all the systems at work. On subsequent adventures, however, you have a better idea of what you can do and can better focus on what you...

Way of the Samurai 4 Review

 

Way of the Samurai 4 places gamers in an open world begging to be explored. Too bad it's just not that fun.

With the freedom of an open world combined with inconsistent tone, it’s very hard to tell just what the development team at ACQUIRE Corp was aiming for. While the story has branching paths, none were especially engrossing or entertaining, and the...

Way of the Samurai 4 Review

 

This quirky series continues as a download-only game for PSN. How does it stack up?

Strangely unique ; Tons of options ; Lots of branching stories

Combat is stiff and boring at times ; Some goofy things are too strange ; Bad screen tearing ; Bland visuals

It tries to find the middle ground between wacky romp and serious game; does it succeed? Fail..

The Way of the Samurai could have been cool, could have been over the top crazy or an excellent historical game, it’s neither, nor is it a good mix of the two. Frankly it’s a game I would avoid buying unless you see it dirt cheap as a download.
