Just another Japanese Dynasty Warriors? I think Not.
6 June 2008 | by twinklestars16See all my reviews

Samurai Warriors, a Japanese spin off of the game Dynasty Warriors, has taken the fans a new time place where war was truly a must, and the battle of supremacy and unification is in order. Based on the Sengoku (or the Warring States) period of 16th Century Japan, they give the historical and the casual gamers a new breath of fresh air to be playing from the anti-hero Nobunaga to the Justice-wielding Yukimura. The game did impress me as a Koei and a history fan. Good start.

Plot: The game concentrates more on the characters, much to the dismay on the historically accurate. It made sure their personalities are on different paths, yet stay still knit-close, unlike a full-kingdom story in DW4. (9/10)

Gameplay: The game play is Dynasty Warriors, itself. But the Battles are based on missions for a plus that makes the game harder yet more challenging. And how well one plays affect also on the outcome in the endings. (8/10)

Music: The Music was okay for its part. It wasn't a rocker-styled theme like Dynasty Warriors, and yet still feels Japan about it. (8/10)

Voices: The voices were a mild problem. Even if the voices matches most of the Dynasty Warriors Characters, some voices were very horrible. Ranmaru Mori, the game's token androgyny, for example. His voice had the right gender unlike his voice successors (who were later voiced by women), but it sounded high pitched and pretty much homosexual, giving away his character too early. But some voices fit well enough like Kunoichi's and Noh's. (5/10)

Characters: How they put in the characters give in to a anime-like feel. Where they have well-made personalities, and such. Oichi was still young in her looks then, and she has stunned me. So did Kunoichi and Goemon, but then, wondering how they got deleted in the sequel was a question. The designs were also good, sadly Nobunaga looked like a Black-clothed Superman, seeing...scary muscles. (8/10)

Overall: (8/10) To conclude, it gave a new face to the Fans who want more history, and it sure did make Koei well-received at some points. It takes Japanese history a whole new meaning of awesome.
