Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked (ps2) Review

Scoring a debatably average 70% from 15 reviews on Metacritic
This hip-hop inspired Samurai game based on the hit TV show is sure to please fans of the series.

Reviews Summary
Fun gameplay, amazing style, great story, presentation, and awesome music
Does alot that's interesting for a little while
About 15 hours to complete and quite a bit of collecting
Style isn't as strong as the tv series
By no means perfect, but for fans it smells sweet
No camera control leaves you with less than optimal viewing point at times
Gameplay gets tedious, but goofy humour and style make it more than average
Faithful to the show, non fans will feel like it's an uglier version of other games
Entertaining hack and slash adventure, a good game with few bugs
If your a fan you'll fall in love with Sidetracked
Taxing level design, saved from being a statistic by wackiness and presentation
