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.
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.
Summary: Koei's Warriors games are essentially critic-proof at this point. You are either in love with the games' utter unwillingness to evolve, or you aren't. Perhaps nowhere is this more the case than with Warriors Orochi.
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.
