  • Excerpt: Samurai Warriors 2, an introduction. The Dynasty Warriors series has been popular for years and gamers seemingly can’t get enough of the series. Of course the Dynasty Warriors series is set in China and is based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel. If you want a Japanese flavour to your mass combat action game then the Samurai Warriors series is for you.

Samurai Warriors 2 Review

  • Excerpt: Samurai Warriors is an offshoot of the famous Dynasty Warriors franchise that focuses on the frantic button bashing combat from the series, leaving the more strategic elements behind. Unfortunately, without any strategy for players to focus on, all that's left is the dull repetitive combat that will turn away many potential customers. Each level is executed in almost exactly the same way as the rest.

  • Excerpt: It's 2:24AM on Thursday the 21st -- two days after I should have had this review written and moved onto the dozen or so other games I have on my plate right now. And yet, as I let the electronica-infused koto notes come bleating out of my speakers, I realize I've lost another games from KOEI, have become something of a joke.

  • Conclusion: Koei has proven in the past that it is capable of doing more with its Warriors games than simply forcing you to cut up enemies endlessly with no overlying purpose beyond advancing a cheesy storyline. With the Empires titles, Koei has periodically transformed these games from pure redundancy to something strategic and interesting.
  • Pros: Sugoroku board game mode makes for an amusing distraction, New skills and upgrades system is a little more interesting.
  • Cons: Gameplay suffers from the same boring hack-and-slash action with no strategy to tie it together, Nonofficer enemies are still dumb as rocks, Cheesy voice acting, and no Japanese language track option.

Samurai Warriors 2 Review

  • Excerpt: Koei's Dynasty Warriors franchise, the long-running and once-revered saga of ancient Chinese warriors beating each other with swords, has had a few moments of evolution throughout its lifespan. With the Empires spin-offs, Koei finally managed to give its repetitve hack-and-slash gameplay some context with some legitimately interesting strategy components.
  • Pros: Sugoroku board game mode makes for an amusing distraction, New skills and upgrades system is a little more interesting
  • Cons: Gameplay suffers from the same boring hack-and-slash action with no strategy to tie it together, Nonofficer enemies are still dumb as rocks, Cheesy voice acting, and no Japanese language track option

  • Conclusion: When I look back at Samurai Warriors 2 I’m unexpectedly surprised at how enjoyable and improved it is from other games of the same ilk. The dodgy camera problems and simplistic gameplay issues have been addressed and fixed pretty much as best they can in this type of game. You’re always going to be tapping square repeatedly in this type of game and the camera will always swing around when you don’t want it to.
  • Pros: The camera’s been fixed!; gameplay a little more complex; co-op; cool sub-games.
  • Cons: Graphics aren’t too hot; story mode gets a little samey; my thumb still hurts…
