Summary: Samurai Warriors 2 Empires combines the most exciting aspects of Action, Fighting and Strategy games. At the start of the game Feudal Japan is divided into warring states and it is up to the player to resurrect a nation using equal amounts of strategy and strength!
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 bad. You know this because you can see the number two staring at you, just below this text. So why you continue to entertain the notion of buying this is beyond us. Even the Achievements suck.
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. If you are a big fan of the franchise, you may want to spend the big bucks to check it out. Otherwise a rental is sufficient.
