Excerpt: One may hear alarms in their head when they hear that a company is releasing a game based off of a cult film from 1979. After all, it’s taken three games and as many developers just to get Evil Dead right. It’s another thing when a franchise is put into the capable hands of a developer that knows what they’re doing.
Conclusion: There's never a shortage of things to do in The Warriors, the overall atmosphere of the game is very convincing, and the combat system, as obviously fighting is what you will mostly be doing, is complex yet easy to use. Simply put, if you like violent "beat-'em-up" games, this is one of the better ones.
Excerpt: Rockstar Games’ has gone back in time and recreated the world of The Warriors, a movie that was created in 1979 based off of the novel by Sol Yurik. While the book and the movie differ in content, the videogame is dead on as it enhances the movie by providing the back story of the Warriors and the rival gangs.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Whether you're a fan of the original film or not is moot, especially if you're a fan of Rockstar; The Warriors game will make you a fan of both. As a license it perfectly reflects its source material and extrapolates it out into a solid and enjoyable game.
