  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: 11 /20 Samourai Warriors reprend les mêmes concepts que Dynasty Warriors et les emmènent au Japon. En gros, Koei nous offre un plat vivement réchauffé qui ne mérita pas l'investissement. A prendre en occase tout au plus.
  • Cons: Graphiquement vraiment laid, Du réchauffé..., Musiques vite lassantes, Juste du Dynasty Warriors...

  • 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.
