New York, 1979.
The armies of the night number 60,000 strong, and tonight they're all
after The Warriors - a street gang wrongly accused of killing a rival
gang leader. The Warriors must make their way from one end of New York
to their turf on the other side of the city. All that stands between The
Warriors and their survival are 20 miles and thousands of street gang
members. The army of gangs owns the streets and there's no turning
back. They must fight for their lives and learn the meaning of loyalty
as danger and uncertainty emerge from the city night.
Rich, deep storyline
including all the intense action of the movie.
Control your gang

Play as 9 different
Warriors with a huge range of visceral fighting moves and combos
gameplay with many different ways to fight or outsmart your enemies.
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
matters. Heavily focus 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
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. If you haven't played this on the
PlayStation 2 than you better check it out for your PSP... it's almost
identical in terms of gameplay, graphics and enjoyment!
