Conclusion: Samurai Warriors 2 is a dull, repetitive slog against unresponsive A.I. across hideously detailed environments. Despite the improved musou feature it manages to take a backwards step for the hack-‘n-slash genre. Only Warriors fans will be interested, and even they may now abandon ship.
Conclusion: Not since the days of " track & field" has button mashing seen such prominence in a game. The hack and slash genre is not something I would normally find myself playing and the first few hours I spent with Samurai Warriors 2 made me remember why.
