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.
Once again, there is a fusion of magic and sorcery in the title with
Orochi showing just how big his cajones are by ripping holes in time
and space to get his fight on. I think heís forgotten that the first
rule of Fight Club is that there is no Fight Club, so for stamps he
wants to whip some buttÖ namely yours!

boss and boss fights that are pretty neat. Some small additions have
been made to the series by allowing you to combine weapons and other
resources. Despite this at its heart you are faced with a button

of Warriors. It simply lacks that original spark that lights up a
gamers eyes. We are faced with rehashed levels, warriors, and
although there is a new storyline, itís not the compelling
experience you would hope for, itís simply a quick excuse to explain
why you are where you are.
am sure however that if you are a fan of the series then it
certainly delivers the goods and then some. At least you wonít have
to learn that much in the way of new stuff as frankly there isnít
much of it. I would have to say that a rent of this game is
essential before purchasing. I am looking forward to seeing what
Koei produces once they breath some new life into their creative
