Summary: It was an idea that should have been test marketed a little more because if most of the players who play Dynasty Warriors 5, 6, 7. or 8 are playing for one major reason.... slash and kill as many of the enemy as possible. Pretty straight forward. In Orochi, they threw in some weird changes that do not enhance this pleasure. If you like being able to change characters with the push of a button and keep track of their health and other things, you might like this.
Summary: The whole no-english thing is more annoying than I thought it would be. And the map is sort of difficult to read / navigate through. I still think it's worth buying, but not for more then $30. I got it used for $27 from gamestop.
Summary: The number of iterations of Dynasty warriors and this game. I was looking forward to the Online, but they seemed to have just gotten lazy and used what was in the previous version of Dynasty warriors. There is no improvement to the game play other than you can use a lot of characters. They snuck some hidden ones in too. Overall I enjoy the game, but do not see a lot of replay after I have beaten it.
Excerpt: Warriors Orochi is the prequel to Warriors Orochi 2 which was some time ago. The Warriors Orochi series follows the lives of warriors from both the Dynasty and Samurai Warriors games as they are combined into one game with the aim of defeating serpent king Orochi. There are 4 story modes - Wu, Wei, Shu, Sengoku. Each of these end up with you facing Orochi in the final battle but all have different storries and characters in the run up to facing Orochi.
Pros: Dynasty and Samurai Warrior characters all in one !
Cons: Short story (although playable in 4 different classes)
Excerpt: i thought that warriors orochi was very decent, even though the voice acting needs a bit or work. i like both dynasty warriors and samurai warriors and the fact they made both worlds collide i thought was very good. the choice of three people was good but made the game seem more easy. it was also a good idea to add a few more characters because it gives it a bit more of story as how the two worlds collide than them seeing each other and murder each other.
Pros: it has SW and DW and also can use three people at once
Excerpt: The worlds of Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors are about to collide, in this cross-over instalment in KOEI's Warriors' series, Warriors Orochi. Where you can play as all of the characters from both Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors, in a unique story set in a fictional universe. There are 77 playable characters from Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors, including two specially made characters exclusive for the Warriors Orochi series.
Pros: Offers both Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors, the few new features are semi - decent
Cons: Voice actors should be hanged, repetitive in every way possible, short story
