Samurai Warriors 3 Review

1 December 2010
  • Excerpt: I apologise in advance if this review has a lethargic tone to it, but Samurai Warriors 3 has bored me into a state of journalistic fatigue. The mind boggling monotony of its story mode had me literally falling asleep at the controller (not literally). I can’t remember a time that I’ve been less engaged with a piece of interactive entertainment, and the thought of writing an upbeat piece of prose about the game is filling me with dread.

Repetitve dash 'n' slash game features combat without blood.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that SAMURAI WARRIORS 3 is a hack-and-slash game that sets out a series of objectives and then asks players to fight through hordes of enemy troops to accomplish each task. There is no blood, but combat is clearly the focus of the game; enemies die by the hundreds. Parents should also note that players can play cooperatively in a two-player online mode, although there is no online chat.

Samurai Warriors 3

Game Revolution
2 November 2010
  • Excerpt: A lost cause... No! The warrior's spirit within me refuses to accept that! If you’ve played Samurai Warriors 2 – or really, any of the Warriors games – then you already know what Samurai Warriors 3 is. To sum it up for you very briefly, Samurai Warriors 3 is Samurai Warriors 2 , but with a crappier framerate and inferior voice-acting. If you’re new to the series, I can sum it up for you briefly: mindlessly mash the 'A' button a lot and you win.
  • Pros: Still an effective stress reliever, Repetition ad nauseum, Memento (Ranmaru) Mori, No voice chat in online play, Bad graphics, Dirt simple, too easy

Samurai Warriors 3 Review

29 September 2010
  • Excerpt: If you've played one game in the Warriors franchise, you've pretty much played them all. Koei's wheelhouse consists of so many hack-and-slash games set in ancient China that it's difficult to distinguish one from the next. Although the settings and strategy vary slightly, and the series has had a couple of memorable titles, all rely on the same underlying combat mechanics.
  • Pros: Cooperative modes help break up the monotony, Good variety of control options
  • Cons: Mindless combat with nearly nonexistent AI, Overdramatic voice-overs of cheesy dialogue, No Wii Speak support for online co-op, Lifeless enemy animations and blurry textures, Slow camera makes finding your way around a chore
