Classic Game Room presents a CGR Undertow video game review of Samurai Shodown for the Neo Geo by SNK. Released in 1993, this game finally put up some stiff competition to the heavy hitters Street Fighter 2 and Mortal Kombat that were dominating the arcade fighting arena at the time. Samurai Shodown's art style, setting, atmosphere, weaponry, and refined fighting mechanics set it apart dramatically and resulted in a very well received answer to the "hadouken." Including classic characters like Haohmaru, Hanzo, Gen-An, Nakoruru, Charlotte, Galford, Earthquake, Wan-Fu and many more, now you can re-live this classic with this new version available on the PlayStation Network that includes online play. This review features Samurai Shodown gameplay footage and commentary from CGR Undertow reviewer Kevin.
