“When so many sword-swinging games seem to readily devolve into frantic button pounding where you slice and dice foes into itty bits, it’s refreshing to stumble across one that takes a more strategic, thoughtful approach to bladed combat. Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword doesn’t skimp on the ol’ stabby-stabby, but it favors precision and split-second timing over chaos and flying limbs. There’s a cool sense of honor that comes from dueling foes one-on-one, even when you’re fighting a large group. It’s also easy to get sucked into the campaign, thanks to the rhythmic nature of each battle and the rewarding progression system.”
