Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes
4 January 2014
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. If you’ve ever been attracted to these mindless, over the top action romps on the other hand, this one might be worth your while especially given its lower than average RRP.
Conclusion: Unashamedly dated, but still surprisingly addictive and good fun if Warriors games are your bag. It’s better, if less strategic, than recent Dynasty Warriors titles too, although that’s unfortunately not saying very much.
Summary: I really dig this game and franchise. I'm happy to see it finally get an actual release here and I hope it continues. I think the game could have used some more playable characters and pathways. But the style is great and a big step up from the more Chinese counterpart to this franchise, Dynasty Warriors. Another cool thing about the gameplay is that you can also get a mount (horse) during your battles which adds another layer of fun.
Summary: Set during a tumultuous period of Japanese history, Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes follows players as they fight their way to the dramatic battle of Sekigahara. Players will take up the swords and spears of more than a dozen fierce samurai warriors in huge battles against hundreds of opponents in many exciting stages that lead up to the main event.
Conclusion: Véritable institution au pays du Soleil-Levant, la série des Sengoku Basara trouve ici l'un de ses meilleurs représentants. Concentré d'action spectaculaire, il offre des heures et des heures de bonheur (surtout en splitté) et parvient à démontrer un savoir-faire que Tecmo Koei n'est pas seul à maîtriser. La firme d'Osaka peut être fière de son dernier rejeton, beau et fun.
Pros: Le character-design hilarant, Les décors nippons, La durée de vie conséquente, Le jeu en splitté
Cons: Pas de VOSTF, Bourrin quand même, Pas assez de personnages jouables
