One of my favourite games
19 March 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the things I love about the KOEI games is the way they always combine deep story/history and really cool characters with a fun, easily accessible action genre.

This game, I found, is far more story-orientated than the Dynasty Warriors series. You follow the 15 characters through each of their own story lines, with some amazing FMV sequences and interesting cut-scenes, and the characters themselves are all very diverse and unique, with a wide range of abilities.

In each of the battles you are given (and also have to find) certain complex missions which you must fulfil in order to affect the outcome of the battle. The missions you accomplish often affect the path you're character takes, and they generally give the battles more of an aim than in previous KOEI games and are usually a lot of fun to do and quite intriguing. At the end of each battle you are given a grade based on you're timing, the amount of people killed by your musou attacks (which isn't very fair as some characters have far better musou attacks than others), items collected and missions completed. In between battles you can use experience points you have earned to buy new skills for your characters, which is a really rewarding process.

The main problem with the game is the sound. The in-battle music is awful, made up of annoying, repetitive low-beat rock tunes, and would really suit something sounding a little more authentic and climactic. The voice acting is a mixture of very good and very bad, with a few characters sounding horrible and some others really miscast, although I did enjoy the voices of Nobunaga, Noh, Hanzo, Yukimura and Mitsuhide and thought they added a lot of personality to their characters.

All in all, Samurai Warriors is experimental in its combination of action and strategy and if its a very sophisticated action or strategy game you're looking for, then you might not be entirely satisfied with this game. If however, you appreciate fun, interesting characters and a dramatic, interactive plot with lots of Japanese history this is the game to play.
