Kessen III

swapgame
21 January 2006
  • Excerpt: Console owners looking for experiences that recall the bloody days of medieval China and Japan rarely need to look further than KOEI’s impressive portfolio. The long running Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors series, now in their third and fifth iterations respectively, put you in the thick of the epic and legendary battles of the ages, as a single hero whose high deeds can change the course of great battles.

Kessen III Review

GameSpot
28 February 2005
  • Summary: It can be a tough order to make a strategy game that's easy to just pick up and play, but Kessen III is both accessible and enjoyable.
  • Pros: Accessible strategy/action, Fun, large battles, Branching paths and extras give it good value
  • Cons: Action tends to get repetitious over time, Strategy is very simple

  • Conclusion: Quantam Redshift does an excellent job of creating a fast paced racing title, but it is awfully short, and there is nothing to really keep you coming back for more. The tournament mode is not as deep as you would expect, therefore the game falls short of the finish line.

Kessen III

Gamecell
19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Kessen III doesn’t play too badly. Although some of the attack options are a little basic, the strategy element attached to it makes up for that, and you never feel like you’re button-bashing all the time. The AI does make a hash of fighting battles for you, but sitting back and just watching battles is boring anyway, so it doesn’t affect the game too much. My only niggle is that KOEI already has a game quite like this, mentioned many times in this review.
  • Pros: Good graphics., Fun mix of tactics and action., Plenty of customisation options.
  • Cons: The AI relies too heavily on human involvement., Might bore some., Isn't Kessen meant to be a real-time strategy game?

Kessen III

JeuxVideo.fr
1 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Suivant la même voie que Dynasty Warriors 5, Kessen III se devait de revoir quelque peu son concept, qui s'articule entièrement autour de la stratégie, afin de plaire à un plus large public. Ainsi le troisième segment de la série ajoute un aspect "action" hérité de Samurai Warriors qui bien qu'imparfait, n'en reste pas moins un atout non négligeable.

Kessen 3 - Review (PS2)

Konsolen-World
23 October 2005
  • Conclusion: Kessen III kann insgesamt überzeugen. Klar gibt es ein paar Kritikpunkte aber diese stören kaum das gute Gameplay. Das Spiel bietet für jeden Spieler etwas. Strategiefans können sich stundenlang mit den unterschiedlichen Schlachtplänen auseinandersetzen, ihre Truppen zusammenstellen und mit unterschiedlichen Truppengattungen neue Angriffe ausprobieren. Hierdurch ergeben sich auch öfters mal unterschiedliche Lösungswege. Der Actionanteil ist auch nicht zu verachten.
