  • Conclusion: There is little doubt that Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes will be lapped up by tactical action fans; it is mechanically robust, pleasing on the eye and has a vitality that has been sorely missing in recent Dynasty Warrior releases. Those not already enamoured with the genre will find less to enjoy here however.

  • Conclusion: Both the Wii version and the PlayStation 3 version support offline, split-screen two-player cooperative play. In this mode, you can revive your companion if he or she falls in battle, which makes getting past some of the tougher bosses easier, but it doesn't actually make the shallow action any better.
  • Pros: Attacks look stylish and powerful.
  • Cons: Mindless, repetitive hack-and-slash action, Idiotic enemy AI, Absence of checkpoints makes death an infuriating setback, Cookie-cutter enemy appearance and behavior.

  • Summary: As the third title in the Sengoku BASARA series, this game doesn't feel like it's matured in any way – if anything, it's like it's taken a few steps back. Gameplay becomes repetitive very quickly and the wow-factor of disposing hordes of enemies loses its appeal as soon as the player realises that every battle is the same as the rest.

  • Excerpt: In SBSH you are given a choice of several characters as you progress through their storylines. Each characters are given their own cut scenes and they all intertwine together. This is only the start of a long list of negatives though. The voice acting is so terrible and cheesy throughout each scene that you can’t help but laugh. The often over exaggerated screams that some characters give are pure comedy rather than pure drama.
  • Pros: Decent customisation options, Nice visuals
  • Cons: Boring and repetitive, Negatively simplistic controls, Horrible acting

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes Review

  • Conclusion: If you put this game along side Konami’s latest Castlevania adventure, or even against the latest games from Capcom, then it doesn’t stand out whatsoever. However, against others in the genre (Ninety-Nine Nights, Dynasty Warriors) it certainly stands head and shoulders above the rest. Perhaps this is the starting point for what the genre needs.
