Based on the cult film
of the same name, The Warriors tells the tale of a gang fighting their
way through the streets in an alternate type world where the gangs rule
the streets and the cops simply do not have any sort of presence that
Based on melee combat, fans of the series will be
pleased at how well the game pans out. Even though the game is fighting
all the way through, there are so many ways that you can accomplish this
that there is going to be a real need for a fair bit of practice in
order to take on the toughies that you will face later in the game.
Warriors is a sweet looking game and Rockstar as
usual have delivered a slick looking game that plays like a treat. The
nice thing about the game is that it doesnít just follow the movie down
to a tee, you start your adventure before the death of Cyrus that makes
up the main focus of the movie, The Warriors.
The action is intense and for those of you who like
your fighters you are going to experience some full scale combat unlike
that youíve seen in some games. Snap necks and using short range melee
weapons, The Warriors game fully captures the essence of the movie and
then takes the experience to the next level.
There are a lot of mini games that also make up part
of the whole gameplay and story. The smaller missions may be things like
stealing stereos or mugging passersby. Itís all a heap of fun and you
can build up power and the ability to fight longer and harder etc.
The title is a true extension of the film in terms of
enhancing the overall way that you will view either medium. There is
real character building potential that takes you beyond the movie and
makes you care about the people who you see on the screen. You become
one with the Warriors and its almost like a gang initiation. Iíd
strongly suggest that you take the opportunity to fight alongside the
warriors and make it back to Coney Island in one piece.
