A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The controls for moving your character and making him fight work pretty well. The challenge level here has been drastically reduced from that in the first game (which is a good thing), but it's still a tough game to beat.


The entire game drips with blood. Every slash and slice of the hero's sword leaves huge splatters of red across the gameworld. Combo attacks can sever limbs and heads, and even slice enemies' bodies clean in half. Some of the goriest bits occur during the comic-book style story sequences.


Some scantily clad sumo-type villains have most of their bottoms showing.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Samurai II: Vengeance is, if anything, bloodier and gorier than its predecessor. The violence is hyper-realistic, with buckets of blood and severed body parts flying everywhere. The story, told in comic book format, involves a lone samurai who wanders into a town being oppressed by vicious warlords. The story sequences are particularly violent and gory. As exciting and entertaining as this game may be, it is not for kids of any age.

Is it any good?

SAMURAI II: VENGEANCE is a sequel to Samurai: Way of the Warrior, and like its predecessor, it features stunning visuals and loads of ultra-gory violence. The story is a pretty standard martial arts fare, but the fast-and-furious action is undeniably exciting. The controls work quite smoothly and, overall, the game feels easier for non-pros to pick up and play. But slicing people's torsos in half with geysers of blood that spray across half the screen is something that is only going to appeal to a certain variety of gamer. It may be true to the Asian martial-arts flicks that obviously inspired it, but even in those films, there's a bit of a break between beheadings which is not found here.
