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.
Summary: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If you’re a fan of any of the Warriors games, any of them at all, then my review is not for you. This review is for the general public who either has never played a Warriors game or hasn’t played one in a long time because they didn’t like the gameplay of the old ones. And for those people, don’t play this game. While the PS3 and 360 versions of this game may be completely competent, the Wii U version is a mess.
Excerpt: A lot of people say if you’ve played any of the Warriors games, you’ve played them all. That’s certainly true to a degree as they all have near identical gameplay. If you’ve disliked the games in this series, Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper won’t likely entice you, but if you’ve enjoyed the games in the past there’s an impressive amount of content here that is worth at least a look.

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.
Review: Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper kicks ass on the Wii U, despite some small issues
30 November 2012
Excerpt: Among the many ports that found their way to Nintendo's new console, the Warriors series found itself to be one of them. It's also good to know that if you're getting any sort of Warriors port to the Wii U, at least it's best one out of the entire series. Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper takes over 130 characters from Dynasty Warriors, Samurai Warriors, Ninja Gaiden, Bladestorm, Legends of Troy and Trinity: Souls of Zill O'll , with a couple new characters, and adds a completely...
