Glitchy hack-and-slash with lousy storytelling.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2):

The frustrating controls and overly-difficult boss battles aren't the worst part of Power Rangers Samurai. What's likely to annoy kids the most is the cheap-looking way it tells its story. All the action, including battle scenes, is depicted through dialogue. After working through an entire level of the game, finally beating a tough boss, and hearing the Power Rangers talk about how that boss just revived itself and turned into a giant monster, you expect to maybe see the heroes battle that big beast. But instead you just get more dialogue, like you're listening to an old radio play. It's hard not to feel cheated.
