Summary: One of the worst games ever created. I am a huge Dynasty Warriors fan, but this game is just horrible. I really wanted to like it. I love Dynasty Warriors and I love Japan so this game should have been fantastic. No, what I got was slower gameplay, insanely unfair enemy A.I., dull graphics, horrendous voice acting, and a ton of other awful problems.
Summary: If you get this game I have to say that it really is better than SW2 and SW2XL, only because you could do just about anything in this game like for instance you can change scenarios depending on what clan you chose to rule, the reason why I think it's as good as the first is that It's a fresh Idea and feels like you actually accomplished something after a battle just like the first one, although the first one did have a lot of things brought from Dynasty Warriors it...
Summary: This is an awesome game i played samurai warriors 2 and dynasty warriors 6 and dynasty warriors 6 empires but when i played this i was all like woah this is awesome you can execute captured enemy officers if they decide not to join you and natural disasters occur on the map to either stop attacks in certain areas or take out a certain amount of troops in a certain area
Summary: My only other experience with a Koei game was Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires (DW5 Empires). Samurai Warriors 2: Empires (SW2 Empires) delivers quite a similar experience. Basically, you can summarize whether or not you'll like the game in the following phrase: If you like DW5 Empires (or any of the Empires games) you'll probably like SW2 Empires.
Summary: This game is worth buying because of the powerful storyline, the strong characters and the strategy which adds twist that allows you to play the role of a political leader as well as fight on the battlefield. You decide what you want your army to do. This game is something I would recommend to people who like dynasty warriors as well as samurai warriors.
Summary: A great game for people who actually enjoy Japanese history and characters. People who know nothing of the samurai should never play this game because they won't know what is going on. I love the game altogether, great design and combos, and cool music.
Summary: An excellent game with solid gameplay, excellent music, and nice visuals. But it also has no online play, repetitive textures and voice acting, and limited anti-aliasing making for choppy graphics on high definition monitors. Critics whine and groan about Koei's games never changing, but it's the same way for many other series like Grand Theft Auto, Madden, Final Fantasy, Halo, Tony Hawk, and Street Fighter. People like what they like, and don't like what they don't.
Excerpt: "...After playing for ages on samurai warriors 2, you really start to feel like you want to start your own conquest of the world. My only criticism is the make an officer mode, i felt it should have been more like the edit mode on Dynasty warriors 5 empires, where you have lots of different combinations, instead of using computer character models. The benefits of this game is you can play it forever and ever, it is time consuming due to its addictiveness, ...
