Conclusion: While the graphics do show that it is a PS2 game (low resolution and color depth of the textures and lower poly models), the game is very fun and the character modeling has that distinct KOEI look to it. There are a lot of characters, weapons and movies to unlock, as well as really deep RPG-style leveling-up of player characters. It's also nice to get a bit of world history while playing a game.
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. The few downsides are that it is impossible to fully max out the stats of your character, and that there are too little characters. But apart from that this game is totaly amazing!
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. This game is about controlling empires to take out other empires, and take revenge on past experience. Very fun to play, nice to kill the enemy without feeling guilty.
