Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes
11 February 2016
Excerpt: Straight off the hot press from Capcom, comes Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes that is created by the developers Hiroyuki Kobayashi of Devil May Cry, more specifically gaming design guru. This tactical strategy game turns your PlayStation 3 into a hack ‘n’ slash bloodbath of epic proportions.
Conclusion: With these issues addressed, I could see a follow-up becoming the true next-generation of the historical beat-em-up. But as it stands, Samurai Heroes probably won’t change the minds of those adverse to the Dynasty Warriors template.

Conclusion: Fans of the genre, Samurai Warriors, anime and of alternate Japanese history will love this game. Some might see Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes as too short, too Japanese, the reason that Inafune says the Japanese gaming industry is on the decline.
Summary: Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes is a real disappointment. It’s a carbon copy of Dynasty Warriors with its mindless AI, dull combat and repetitive nature. If you do like mindless button-mashing then stick to DW and give this a miss.
