Product Description

Product Description

A battle of gigantic proportions is looming in the neon underground of New York City. The army of the night numbers 100,000 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, The Warriors must fight for their lives and learn the meaning of loyalty as danger and uncertainty emerges from the city night. Rockstar Games proudly presents a PlayStation 2 game based on Walter Hill`s 1979 cult film The Warriors. As in the film, the storyline of the game takes place at night, underground, in the sub-culture of gang warfare that rages from Coney Island to Manhattan to the Bronx. This game is as intense and stylized as the cult film it pays homage to.

Yes We Can. Rockastar once again explodes onto the gaming scene with an epic masterpiece of violence and wonder. Based on the cult classic of 1979, the Warriors follows the story of the street gang, of the same name, in Coney Island, from their humble beginings (using flashbacks unlocked after some levels) to their fateful night alone in New York with 60,000 men between them and their turf. Many will not trust this game due to the utter dissapointment of Manhunt, another game based around the Rockstar GTA engine (bought by me simply because of the controversy after it's release), but this will not dissapoint. You begin playing as the new player Rembrandt, a self made graffiti artist, and continue through the story mode as many of the different gang members, such as Ajax (a good fighter), or Cleon (leader of the Warriors). Missions range from Graffiti Showdowns, to destroying enemy gang art galleries, from killing an old friend for money, to scrambling across roof tops, this game makes for great playing. With an intense fighting system and the ability to mug, steal and cause general panic this makes for one of the best Rockstar, and Xbox games yet.

Im a huge fan of the movie "The Warriors". It was filmed in 1979 when new york was known for having a terrible crime record with gangs mugging, raping, stealing, pretty much any crime a man can commit.
The movie was ultra slick and very violent for its time and even today can still be viewed as quite a violent look on late 1970's gang warfare.
Everyone knows rockstar, being responsible for the hugely popular GTA series. When I heard they were doing a game version of the warriors i was slightly unsure if they could pull it off.
Scrolling beat em ups have had a great past history with streets of rage and final fight but the transition from 2d to 3d has been pretty dismal.
Right from the start of playing this game you can tell rockstar have done their homework. The game opens with the same film opening scene, except with actual game footage. They have secured the rights for the original soundtrack and also drafted in the actors from the film such as james remarr for the voice acting.
Graphical wise, the game doesnt look as hot as other beat em ups, however when you consider how many game characters are on screen you will realise they have to sacrafice for this.
Missions are pretty varied but as you would expect involve alot of random fights and boss fights.
The game will last a long time. Some missions involve alot of work and along the way you can take on submissions. The game also has alot to unlock such as gangs to play with on the rumble games and extra missions such as how the warrior gang orignally formed.
You will find it easy to pick up and play but very hard to put down. Not much to fault on this game apart from the camera view being slightly annoying at times but other than that, rockstar has created a new fresh wake up for the beat em up genre.

I must confess to never watching the film - the main reason I bought this game was that I have been waiting for a good free roaming beat 'em up since the Streets of Rage games on the Mega Drive. The genre has never successfully made the transition into 3D before The Warriors.

Intitially, I was slightly underwhelmed by this game. The opening training mission was great for introducing the controls (which are very good) and characters but the second proper mission is far too long, drawn out and boring. After that's done the game really picks up and is so hard to put down.

The sheer variety of gameplay and objectives on offer is impressive - it's not just mindless fighting from start to finish. You may have to cause as much destruction in a certain area as possible, spray tag The Warriors logo on walls, evade chases from other gangs, protect an area from a rival gang... the list goes on and on.

Even though this is a Rockstar game, this isn't to be confused with the GTA series. The Warriors is not as open ended and is much more clearly structured - it is divided into specific missions with set areas to explore (no huge city to explore at will). This is a different game entirely to GTA and has to be more linear in scope.

All the levels are set at night in 1970s New York as the game follows The Warriors in the months running up to the plot of the film. For fans of the film, the voice acting is done by the original cast members and is quite good.

This wouldn't be a typical Rockstar game if it didn't have lots of violence and bad language - and there's quite a lot in this game.

The warriors is a game i bought for my xbox in 2005 and i always pull out my old xbox to play this good game ,if you dont like violence and street gangs dont buy this game,worriors does not work on xbox 360 so dont complain that it does not.
the warrior game is fun and the combat system is very easy to get to grips with ,you can also do double attacks on you enemies with bricks ,bottles or wood.the graphics are a little dated but this games is 8 years old so ,that should not spoil your game play experience.
the game is based on the movie and it is full of cut scenes from the film and it uses the actors voices.the games is set in 1979 new york and it include music from that time.worrior is a violent criminal street sim ,the good thing about the worrior is that when you complete the game you can fight all the other street gang in the small sub games .
warrior is a must buy for the xbox owner.
