The Warriors review (PS2)

HonestGamers
3 July 2009
  • Excerpt: As in the movie, they're a fictional gang, hoodlumming it up and down 1979 Coney Isle. The Warriors and a hundred other gangs are invited to a "no guns" meeting held by a very charismatic cat named Cyrus, whose noble dream is to unite the gangs and violently take over every aspect of the New York City underworld.

The Warriors Review

VideoGamer.com
4 February 2007
  • Excerpt: The Warriors is Rockstar Games' movie licensed beat 'em up. The film itself, released in 1979, became a cult classic, and is remembered for its brutal action. Telling the story of a gang - The Warriors - on the run to their home town after they are blamed for the murder of a notorious gang leader, it has been untouched by the videogame world until now.

  • Excerpt: “Huh? Based on a 70’s movie? Why now?” I heard myself utter those words when I first heard about The Warriors . Apparently, the people over at Rockstar (infamous now because of their controversial Grand Theft Auto series) won the rights to this relatively unknown action film. It makes perfect sense considering their track record, appealing to all destruction/violence loving gamers of the world.

The Warriors - Student Review

Playstation Illustrated
8 October 2006
  • Excerpt: The Warriors , a gang in the slums of New York, are out for power and control. This game is based on the movie The Warriors released in the 1970’s. The characters are true to what the player would think and know about gangs and their interaction with other gangs. The rating of this game is Mature and for good reason. The characters all use foul language and they are brutal to everyone they encounter on the streets. The characters are all distinct in form.

The Warriors – Review

GameCritics.com
30 August 2006
  • Excerpt: As a movie, The Warriors is more of a sinister fantasy than an accurate depiction of youth gangs. Walter Hill's New York of 1979 seems like the feverish dream of a paranoid citizen fed his daily dose of crime stories in the local newspapers. Accordingly, the gangs which the movie presents have a certain cartoonish feel to them.

  • Summary: Movie-linked games are usually games best left unreleased but there are a few exceptions and The Warriors is most definitely one of those games - hardly surprising considering Rockstar's track record with games. The Warriors is an excellent beat-em-up, a great action game with plenty of styles of gameplay, it has a great 70's vibe and an excellent storyline to boot.
