Samurai Shodown Sen is a game that I’ve had my eye on for a while, slowly waiting for the price to drop. I nearly brought it when it dropped to Â£8 in HMV but my patience paid off – a couple of weeks ago it dropped to Â£5.
In a nutshell, it’s a borderline average game. Everything about it is adequate but nothing more. Well, there is one thing that makes it stand out – the incredibly botched translation.
I haven’t seen a game so riddled with Engrish for a long time. Have a look at some of the achievement descriptions:
- To have Xbox LIVE fighting for once
- To kill thousand of men
- To provocate the opponent for 50 rounds
The announcer also yells â€œConclusion!â€ at the end of each match. I’m not sure though if this is due to a bad translation or the developers trying to be differentâ€¦
