Summary: Warriors Orochi 3 was one of the best entries in Koei's long-running Warriors series, perhaps since Dynasty Warriors 3 . Not only was it packed with content, the inclusion of Ryu Hayabusa, Joan of Arc, and other characters from Tecmo Koei's game library, made it quite a special installment.
Excerpt: So often in reviews we comment on having to digitally murder thousands of the same looking characters. That is literally true in Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper. In the first level my characters murdered over two thousand. Hordes of enemies would walk up and accept a beat down. Then another one, and another one. At some point I would forget what my quest was even about.
Excerpt: Properly equipped, your warriors have amazing range and can cleave through hordes of enemy soldiers, even on the Normal difficulty setting. Special moves are also available and they can inflict even more damage, but in general you can save those moves for the more challenging bosses that sometimes storm the field.
Excerpt: The warriors have arrived on the Nintendo Wii U and this time, they've brought the gameplay! Gone are the fiddly controls of the Wii as the Koei have included the innovative controls of not just the GamePad but also the Classic Controller in Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper that is a relatively flawless port of this franchise onto this new console.
Conclusion: I couldn’t justify the purchase of Hyper to those who already own the game on another platform, unless they are hardcore fans of the series. Having said that, those looking for a new game for their Wii U should give this title strong consideration heading into the holiday season. The game is strong (but not outstanding) in almost all elements of play, making it a worthy purchase for anyone interested in a unique action/adventure title.
Pros: Accessible and enjoyable gameplay, Visuals are generally of high quality, Great setup of story and optional missions
Cons: Uninspiring implementation of Gamepad, Lack of strategic options in combat can make battling repetitive, Inexcusable rendering issues
Summary: Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper est un bon jeu, doublé d’un excellent défouloir. Il ravira sans aucun doute les habitués des licences de Tecmo Koei avec son incroyable contenu, et initiera les autres à une recette qui a déjà fait ses preuves. Cependant, sa réalisation et son manque de bonus déçoivent, tout comme l’exploitation quasi- inexistante des fonctionnalités du GamePad.
Pros: Casting en or, Durée de vie incroyable, Défouloir efficace +Voix originales
Cons: Habituels problèmes de réalisation, Manque de bonus, GamePad sous, exploité, Répétitif
Conclusion: Dopo aver affrontato per una manciata di ore lo Story Mode offerto dal codice review sul Wii U test redazionale (testi in inglese, parlato in giapponese), il predatore della novità perduta che c’è in me ha trovato parziale soddisfazione nella inedita modalità Duello, con la quale ha fatto qualche partita anche in versus contro giocatori umani.
