Great port, but needs better controls
Others have said it, and I completely agree: it's an absolutely brilliant port of the original game. The only problem is the controls are just ineffective. Overlaying the controls does maximize screen real estate for the game, but it means obscuring critical areas you need to see in order to play the game. The developers tried to aid this by making the controller configuration extremely flexible and adding shortcut buttons, but the option to devote the bottom of the screen to controls is absent so you have no choice but to cover the gameplay. In addition, the virtual joystick lacks the ability to adjust the sensitivity. Out of the box, the joystick is too sensitive: your character ends up jumping around too much unintentionally. External joystick support would be fantastic, but the developers could do a bit more to make up for that deficiency. Right now, it's almost impossible to play the game effectively without a joystick.
Difficult but fun
I've always enjoyed the Samurai Shodown games and I was pleasantly surprised to see it available for the iPhone. It is still fun to play but with that said, this is not at all very easy to play because of the controls which are very, very sensitive since all the movement is like a joystick you'd use for the actual arcade version of the game. It will take a lot to get used to because of the sensitivity, but on the plus side all of the special moves, are done with the aid of a "special move" button, so you just have to move the joystick in a particular direction and then you press the special move button which I liked. So if you're a fan of the Samurai Shodown series, you should definitely give this version of the game a try, you just might enjoy it the same way I did!
Good but difficult
This is a great game and brings back the golden age of arcade fighting. The controls are not bad but they cannot quite replace the feeling of mashing buttons in a controller or arcade game so it might appear that they are unresponsive. Whoever thinks the resolution is poor on this game has obviously never played an old fighting arcade game before the age of polygons. The graphics are a great example of what games used to be and how fun they can be even without the latest and greatest graphics. The only thing that prevents me from giving it a 5 star rating is that it is incredibly difficult to beat even with the special move shortcuts. Even at level 1 difficulty it makes quite a frustrating experience. All around it is a fun old school game.
