Samurai Warriors Reader Review - 8.6

  • Conclusion: As with KOEI's other Dynasty Warrior games, Samurai Warriors delivers mindless hack n' slash gameplay yet still keeps bringing you back for me carnage and mayhem. KOEI comes through yet again with another solid and addictive Warrior title.

Samurai Warriors Reader Review - 8.7

The Experiment, IGN Entertainment

  • Summary: Samurai Warriors for both ps2 and Xbox is one of the best in the series, the fact that the enemies can fit on the screen is a big help, unlike in Dynasty Warriors 3 and 5.

A decent japanese style dynasty warriors game

  • Excerpt: This review is about Samurai Warriors for the XBOX which has more enhanced graphics then its counter-part on the Playstation 2. It is made by the same creators of Dynasty Warriors 4 and Romance of the three kingdoms VIII. Koei is the creator, and they are brilliant to make such a game like this.

  • Summary: All the other reviews for this game (including PS2) have been by fans of the series, this is the first in the series Ive played. This game plunges you straight into the action with no explanation as to what you're supposed to be doing or, for that matter, how to do it.
