Summary: Like many others, I don't have a PS3 or an Xbox360. This limits what new Dynasty Warrior games are available to me. I had a choice between DW6 or WO2. I think I made the correct decision, but I think some of the older DW games were better overall. The advantage of this game is that it includes characters from both the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors games, as well as characters created either for this series, or new characters for this game.
Summary: Warriors Orochi 2 for the PS2 and Xbox360 (basing review off PS2 version) is essentially the same Warriors Orochi game released last year for the same consoles. Fans of the series will enjoy the new content in this release (assuming they've enjoyed the first WO), newcomers may find the hack n' slash style gameplay refreshing, and those who find the game repetitive will seek to stay away from this release as with any other Warriors game KOEI releases every year.
