  • Conclusion: Koei have, without question, hit upon a highly successful formula, and I don’t feel it’s my place to say they’re doing anything wrong (they’ve got the sales figures to unquestionably prove otherwise), but sooner or later these identical pieces of straw are going to break the player’s back.

  • Conclusion: It’s always a shame when you see the potential in a game like what I see in Samurai Warriors 2 Empires for the Xbox 360 and still see it struggle. There is so much that they could do with a series like this, and its just too bad they haven’t got all of the pieces together.

Expert Review

  • Summary: Stop us if you've heard this one before. Once again those pesky ancient samurais are up to their usual warring shenanigans, and it's up to you to relive their past battles through a lot of completely boring combat and annoyingly acted cutscenes. Yep, it's another Samurai Warriors game from Koei.
  • Pros: The strategy elements of the empires mode are well designed and fun, Solid create-an-officer mode
  • Cons: Combat is as bland and uninteresting as ever, Not many features outside of the empires mode, Graphics and audio are stuck in the Stone Age, Repetitive and grating voice acting

Console Monster

  • Summary: The Way Of The Samurai is a strange one. So many moves to learn, so many facts, so much strategy. This samurai has fought many a battle against modern weaponry, futuristic weaponry and even commanded great armies. Now he has found himself playing Samurai Warriors 2: Empire.
  • Pros: Strategy adds to the fun, Brainless, solider smashing fun, Easy to pick up and play
  • Cons: Terrible voice acting, Very repetitive, Poor graphics

  • Conclusion: If you just can't get enough of this stuff, Koei are back with yet another pad busting action game in "Samurai Warriors 2: Empires." Call me crazy but enough is enough. From the moment the menu loads this is overly familiar territory.
