Samurai Warriors: Chronicles

Destructoid
26 June 2011
  • Summary: Where there is a new system, there is a new Warriors game waiting in the wings. Tecmo Koei has gotten in early this time, ready for the 3DS' launch with Samurai Warriors Chronicles , yet another button-bashing foray into the world of medieval Japan. Maybe Tecmo Koei rushed in a little too early this time.

Historical hack-and-slash game with moderate violence.

Common Sense Media
26 June 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Samurai Warriors Chronicles is a hack-and-slash adventure game. The main objective is to run around battlefields and take out as many enemies as possible. Players are scored based on how many opposing soldiers they kill. However, it's a very impersonal experience and there are never any close-up or slow-motion effects. It's an adventure based on the historical era of Feudal Japan, in which the entire country was at war.

Samurai Warriors Chronicles (3DS) - Review

VGChartz
8 May 2011
  • Excerpt: Koei’s Warriors franchise is the most polarizing series in gaming. It is one of the only franchises to continuously get scores at opposite ends of the spectrum with every release and there’s a very simple reason for that: Fans love it and everyone else thinks it’s repetitive and a constant rehashing of the same game. Those who are not fans of the series will see a game that is arguably more repetitive than the button mashing contained within.

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles (3DS) Review

Vooks
10 April 2011
  • Excerpt: There always seems to be a “Warriors” title available for any console at launch, or if not soon thereafter. With the series thus far, I’ve always had trouble seeing the appeal in the games and just how the publisher continually churns out sequels that still manage to sell despite no apparent major upgrades.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: The launch of the Nintendo 3DS has brought us a ton of ports, both of new games (Super Street Fighter IV) and old games (Rayman). Tecmo Koei brings us something refreshing: a title designed specifically for the 3DS. Do not get me wrong, the Samurai Warriors/Dynasty Warriors franchises are well represented on both consoles and handhelds. It’s just nice to know that someone actually bothered to develop an original game.

Samurai Warriors Chronicles Review

GameSpot
1 April 2011
  • Excerpt: The Samurai Warriors series has long been devoted to transporting players to its unique version of feudal Japan, a place where a few extremely powerful and stylish officers meet countless identical, mindless grunts on vast fields of battle to engage in repetitive, shallow hack-and-slash combat. Samurai Warriors Chronicles is faithful to its forebears, bringing all the tedium that has characterized earlier games in the series to Nintendo's new handheld.
  • Pros: Constant flow of objectives can make battles feel urgent and lively
  • Cons: Sluggish, tedious combat, Dull storytelling, Enemy soldiers look like generic clones
