I had very high hope for this game and its not the graphics the disappointed me. It was the chulky game play of the character, the AI moved like gracefully. This game is a very poor attempt at being the original soul caliber game,
I played the original game on the arcade machine and I was really looking forward to playing the game again on my Xbox 360. They changed the look of the game to a Tekken like and everything about it sucked. Tekken is a great game, so don't get me wrong when I say that the look of the characters were like Tekken.
For Samurai Shodown this just doesn't work at all - the music was terrible, the character spacing and fighting were very poor.
This game is a total flop in my opinion - they really messed up a great game by trying to copy the Street Fighter/Tekken look and feel.
