Conclusion: However, in many ways Orochi is simply preaching to the converted. Regardless of the faults and the lack of any type of technological or artistic progression, this is simply a game which will be loved and hated in equal measure. If you've played and enjoyed any Dynasty or Samurai Warriors title in the past, I can’t help but recommend it. If you haven't, it'd be wise to hang around until Koei finally decides to update the formula.
Excerpt: Koei is back with yet another Warriors game in the series. This time around you are faced with the character Orochi who is a demon who wishes to face off against the most powerful warriors from previous games that have come before. Not the most original plot but still proving to be fun for those who are fans of the series.
Pros: A total of 77 playable warriors from both Warriors franchises, All-new storylines mean you won't have to play the Yellow Turban Rebellion for the billionth time, Team-up mechanic is at least a nice idea
Cons: Gameplay is as boring as ever, Bland presentation, Irritating voice acting, Little content beyond the story mode
Conclusion: In Warriors Orochi , the worlds of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors collide. The results? A decent game, but one that has flaws. The premise of the game is that the Serpent King Orochi has broken time and space to test his strength against the best warriors from Ancient China and Fedual Japan.

Excerpt: Dynasty Warriors has been around for quite some time, ten years in fact, and in that time it’s spawned quite a few games, not to mention the odd spin off, most notably Samurai Warriors. Now Koei, instead of diversifying things and bringing things back together, Warriors Orochi takes the world of Dynasty Warriors and brings it together with its spin off Samurai Warriors.
