PixlBit's Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword Review

"Outside of its aesthetic appeal, there's very little to like in Sakura Samurai: Art of the Blade. Its core mechanics are slightly troubled thanks to the auto-targeting, but more importantly, it's a fairly bland experience that is better off passed on."

The story is too old to be commented.

I think this is another example of a review based upon personal preference rather than one based upon informing the public. So, it makes me wonder why some people even bother to review. Why is it that most give this generally good reviews, yet one person says "there is very little to like here"? Trust me, I don't care if someone doesn't like the game, but I also believe that you shouldn't recommend or not recommend a game in a review just based upon what you like. It makes me doubt your credentials as a game reviewer.

I'm just of the school of gamers that believes that a review's purpose is to PREDICT whether OTHER PEOPLE will like a game to help them decide. And I think based upon many other reviews from many other reputable game reporters that this review may be giving people bad advice. Bad advice is poor journalism.

An example: I LOATHE the Grand Theft Auto series. But, I wouldn't not recommend it to someone, knowing that many gamers love it, simply because I don't like it. I would be giving irresponsible advice.
