An action/adventure game taking ques from both film-noir and samurai-drama's of old, "samurai_jazz" takes players on an adventure through an enigmatic city, engaging in realistic sword-fights, encounters with mythological beings, and quirky dialog with the local inhabitants all presented in a pseudo 8-bit format. While action remains the central focus, a bit of detective work and puzzle-solving is necessary along with the usage of twitch-reflexes while having to plan and perform strategies effectively to overcome each of the game's abstract scenarios.

Taking ques from both film-noir and samurai-drama's of old, "samurai_jazz" is a pseudo 8-bit hack'n'slash game with an abstract adventure for players to experience. But what sets this game apart from the norm of the genre is it's demand for a more strategic approach to the combat, with each type of enemy requiring it own unique strategy to overcome and it's graphic novel-like presentation.

While the adventure side is a bit lite, players will find themselves engaging in quirky dialogue with local towns folk, solving puzzles, exploring the enigmatic city, and learning more about the ronin who takes on the role of the protagonist of this tale.

Desura Digital Distribution

Expect a fresh-yet-familiar experience with fight scenes that play out like classic samurai films within a film-noir setting. There's action, adventure, and a jazzy atmosphere backed by it's ambient soundtrack. Check out samurai_jazz, today!

The graphics are nice, the gameplay looks fun as well. And I hate to nitpick also but "realistic" is a term that should be avoided. I think it invites expectations that are very difficult to meet, for one. And I think the single attack animation will put people off.

That being said, if the music is as lovely and retro as the graphics, (and perhaps what would tip my final decision even more is if there was just a bit more variety to the combat) I'd be willing to give it a try..

i like it but i not agree with your description of the game. It's a "one hit one kill system", not a "realistic" system of combact or anyway you don't show it in the only one trailer of the game. Make another one please. And maybe show some of the other way to put down enemies like you said.

Anyway i will buy it, hoping an upgrade or just for the style, i don't played enough game on my psx and GBA
