  • Excerpt: It isn’t often that you can pick up a game by a relatively unknown company and have a more than even chance of it being any good. KOEI have disproved this theory over the last couple of years, with titles such as Dynasty Warriors and Mystic Heroes proving to be great fun when you really needed to take your anger and aggression out on a couple of hundred army foes.

  • Excerpt: Like its older brother, Samurai Warriors takes its background from a historical basis. Set in the turbulent Sengoku period of Japan’s past, Samurai Warriors is a tale of numerous clans and factions fighting each other for control of Japan. Up to three separate banners can take the field of battle, raising the level of chaos to a fever pitch as each side fends for itself.

Samurai Warriors Review

  • Conclusion: Samurai Warriors is nearly identical to the DW series of titles in that it is a love it or hate it affair. If you have a love for the Koei/Omega Force titles, you would be a fool not to check out Samurai Warriors, which trumps Dynasty Warriors in just about every area. If you want to learn a little more about the hack n’ slash genre, you may want to consider a game like Ninja Gaiden first before delving into Samurai Warriors; if you can’t deal with the swarms of ninja...

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: For most companies, the lack of gameplay innovation can easily kill a franchise, as gamers turn their backs on purchasing what seems like the same game over and over again. Not so with Koei, the publishers of the cultishly successful Dynasty Warriors series. Somehow, while Dynasty Warriors returned to the same battlefields with the same warriors over and over again with some additions or variations, the hack and slash action it provided kept fans coming back for more.

  • Conclusion: The sound is pretty much average with it mostly consisting of sword slashes and clashes. The voice acting is better than usual coming out of Japan with voices that usually fit the face… apart from one guy who sounds like a woman.
  • Pros: You’re a hero!, Hundreds of enemies., Locked high frame rate.
  • Cons: Why can’t I control the camera?, Repetitive for some., Some cut scenes are a pain.

  • Excerpt: Grand raconteur de faits historiques, le studio japonais Koei s'est spécialisé durant ces dernières années dans la fresque médiévale chinoise, permettant au moins érudit d'entre nous de se cultiver tout en abattant des centaines d'ennemis. Respectant dans la mesure du possible les trames déchirantes émaillant les années de guerre de cette civilisation imposante, la série des Dynasty Warriors a su s'imposer dans le coeur de nombreux guerriers en herbe.
