With online multiplayer being as wonky as it is, there isn't much else to do beyond playing through the arcade mode. Samurai Shodown V Special is a fun experience, but can feel a little like solitary confinement at times. Though with local multiplayer, this is remedied quite easily and Special becomes as special as it was all those years ago. I'm just happy to finally own it.
I really enjoyed my time with Samurai Shodown V Special, I just wish it had given me a couple more reasons to come back in the future. After a few runs in the arcade mode there isn’t much else to do on the single-player side of things. I hope we’ll get the opportunity to see this series return again someday.
