    "I don't know why this is so low on this listwhen it is clearly the best game in the series. exicting story line in the arcade mode, and balanced chars on the versus so it will be up to skills among players. Thankfully they released it for PS man!! cant wait to call up my cousins and tell them we should connect and play this Samurai Shodown V Special just like old times."
