  • Excerpt: Samurai Warriors 2: Empires is the latest in Koei’s series of ‘Warriors’ games. SW2, for those of you who haven’t played it, is an action game where you are in control of a warrior in feudal Japan. Each battle involves running around the map killing the enemy soldiers/generals while attempting to capture enemy bases and storm castles. What this game adds to SW2 is a strategy level where a map is divided into regions.

Samurai Warriors 2: Empires Review

  • Excerpt: Stop us if you've heard this one before. Once again those pesky ancient samurais are up to their usual warring shenanigans, and it's up to you to relive their past battles through a lot of completely boring combat and annoyingly acted cutscenes. Yep, it's another Samurai Warriors game from Koei. If you're out of the loop as to what this series, or any other of Koei's Warriors games, is about, just stop reading and know that you're not missing a whole heck of a lot.
  • Pros: The strategy elements of the empires mode are well designed and fun, Solid create-an-officer mode
  • Cons: Combat is as bland and uninteresting as ever, Not many features outside of the empires mode, Graphics and audio are stuck in the Stone Age, Repetitive and grating voice acting

  • Conclusion: Samurai Warriors 2 Empires isn't a game that is entirely without merit, the problem is that those merits are rather too well worn now. There's not too many, if any other series of games where you can slaughter hundreds of soldiers in a few minutes, the problem is that there's no need to buy this version of the game over any recent previous one.
  • Pros: Kill lots and lots of enemies...
  • Cons: with only one button...

  • Conclusion: Samurai Warriors 2 Empires bietet Buttonmashing-Action f�r Leute, die dabei auch das strategische Denken nicht vernachl�ssigen wollen, und so macht der Empire-Modus das Spiel letztendlich interessanter als das dazugeh�rige Hauptprogramm. An der Grafik und am Kampfsystem hat sich allerdings seit Ewigkeiten kaum etwas ge�ndert - unerschrockene Koei-Fans lassen das den Entwicklern vielleicht gerade noch durchgehen, dennoch wird der schale Beigeschmack der Stagnation mit...
  • Pros: Zahlreiche strategische Möglichkeiten, Interessanter als das Hauptspiel, Solider Offiziers-Editor
  • Cons: Veraltete Technik, Seit Ewigkeiten gleiches Buttonmashing, Keine Lokalisation, Etwas spröde Menüs
