Summary: When I first played this game, it was over four years ago at an old friend's house. He was really into the samurai genre of games, and he introduced me to this exciting world with this game. Some of you might think it's not a proper introduction, for there are better samurai games out there, but none like this one. Samurai Warriors 2: Empires is an expansion of the original SW2 game. The gameplay has been changed, with the major addition of the strategic element.
Summary: Items are gone and replaced with general enhancement slots. other than that, you willn't be surprised by anything else here. welcome addition s include mutiple-vectored musuo gauges qnd special stance attacks, however it must be noted that i've always felt every iteration of samurai warriors but a prelude to the grander and (always) better and more comfortable Dynasty Warriors. People migh dissagree, but hey, screw them.
Summary: KOEI is back with yet another Dynasty/Samurai Warrior hackenslash game. This genre is now infamous for its simplistic run around aimlessly killing dumb soldiers until you reach a slightly more difficult to defeat general. The franchise hasn't changed much over the past few years. This is both good and bad. From year to year we are subjected to sequels which are more along the lines of touch up packages.
Excerpt: Un peu moins bien que la série Dynasty Warriors, cette opus vaut quand même son pesant en cacahouètes. La stratégie à été revue, et est devenue assez sympa à gérer, en plus du hack'n'slash qui reste de haut niveau.
