So you want to know if a game is any good before you buy it? Below you can find the reviews for Akai Katana. Reviews tell you what the pros and cons are of a game, how the game plays, if the story line is any good, the ESRB Rating, number of players, genre, multiplayer options…You get the idea. We put everything all in one place for you so you’ll be able to figure out if the game is right for you. If you have any questions that the reviews didn’t answer, start a new thread on the forum.

Akai Katana Shin is a well-crafted dose of over-the-top bullet-hell action.

Akai Katana is a perfectly fun arcade shooter that unfortunately took a wrong turn on the way to your Xbox 360. What could have been an inexpensive downloadable game is a $40 retail product. Still, it's an enjoyable effort, if not an amazing one.

Yes, even us mortal humans can play and enjoy bullet hell shoot ‘em ups—and for those wanting to try such games, Akai Katana can have just as much to offer us as it does hardcore fans of the genre.

Throw a local partner into the mix, and Akai Katana is just plain nuts, whether you take turns shielding one another in warrior form and working as a team, or compete for resources and score bonuses with no regard for the success of your mission. The action occasionally slows down as if you're playing an old Super NES cartridge, and $40 is a bit steep when you can grab classics likeIkaruga for $10 on Xbox Live Arcade. But even so, Akai Katana certainly belongs in any bullet-hell aficionado's library.
