The Samurai Shodown Sen game is one which exists in three dimensions. There are some ideas that are new as well as interesting which are in the fighting genre. But the balance as well as the execution of the game leave a lot to be desired. For one, the game has a strong core concept as well as good finishers that are quite gory for effect. In addition to this there is also a sense of weight as well as momentum that are required for the game. The cons of the game are that it has a combo system that is rather imbalanced and its sidestep move is also not that great. There are just a few modes to the game which mean that it is quite limited in concept and execution as well.
The Samurai Shodown Sen game is an attempt of the SNK game franchise to get the 2D fighter games into a 3D mode. There are some tactical concepts that help to distinguish the game from some of its peers as well as competitors. But these good aspects are lost in poor balance, animations that are quite obscure. There are also some control choices that are not only regrettable but also quite avoidable.
