4.0 out of 5 stars An epic beginning to glasses free 3D! 26 Mar 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I had never played a samurai warriors or dynasty warriors game before, so I worried for a while whether or not to get this as my sole launch game. I turned on my shiny new 3DS and popped the game in, enjoying the little game animation pop out in 3D. Then I was off.

The game is a real treat to play. The animations are all beautiful in 3D and the range of interesting and crazy characters are something that only furthers my interest in the game. The story mode is very nicely laid out with a map of Japan describing the events of every level you play, and the streetpass feauture is interesting as you choose your team of four characters you have met in the game and their layout. Then, when you walk past someone with chronicles your team and their team fight each other. Its quite a simple way to demonstrate streetpass, the match being more down to the rock, paper, scissors mechanics of the layout e.g serpent formation beats... but is beaten by... but the overall effect has a nice finish to it.

The story takes place during Feudal Japan and you take control of either a male or female warrior, both with their own strngths and weakenesses. After a few questions (if you've ever played pokemon mystery dungeon, the style of questioning may seem familiar)you embark through the chapters of Japan's history and fight in some very fun and beautiful environments. One small problem that didn't really matter to me but may to someone else was that in the actual level the graphics seem to jump backwards a generation. In the animations and talking scenes you have beautifully animated graphics that are very striking in 3d, but in the actual game you have more Gamecube- like graphics instead of better-than-wii ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars A New Style of Game For Me.. 3 April 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This was a bit of a step into the unknown for me, having never played any of the other games in the series. I've had the game for a week now so have had time to get used to the mechanics and moves. If you are not used to this kind of combat game it does take a little getting in to but it is well worth the time.

In the main "Story Mode" you start by creating a character and answering a set of questions that set your up your characters stats. You are then treated to a very nicely animated into and are told some of the back story to the battle you are about to engage in. Then it is in to the action. Your character is vastly outnumbered but is also much more powerful than the enemy making it great fun as you slice and blast your way through the opposing army. As well as your own character, you can switch between up to three other similarly overpowered allies as the balance of the battle changes. Apart from the overall battle which has certain victory conditions, you are given a number of missions that pop up during the level you are playing. To complete these, you will often need to switch to another character to complete the challenge. You also get the chance to pick up extra items that have been left on the battlefield by your defeated opponents.

The first few levels ease you in, introducing new moves and concepts such as combos and different power moves that become available when you have gathered enough energy by defeating your foe. At the end of each mission you can divide the loot you have collected amongst the characters that took part in the battle to make them more powerful in future combat. You can, of course, save the best items for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality 3 April 2012
By Luckh
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Samurai Warriors is an excellent game on an emerging handheld. The 3D is of a decent standard, complementing the good graphics (for a handheld) and adding depth like it was designed for.

The gameplay is fun and engaging, which is always difficult on a repetitive hack and slash genre. The AI is nothing special though. The generic soldiers just run around, attacking once in a blue moon, but you'll kill them anyway. The enemy officers, who are capable of providing a fight, are well balanced. However, your own army is occasionally muddled, such as having a task to escort someone to another officer only for said officer to be killed first, or lose time killing everything in their path.

Content and replayability is huge. Collecting is key, with everything from rare weapons and horses to officer dialogue and music able to be viewed from the menu. Both spotpass and streetpass deliver, with the former providing several more missions and weapons, and the latter letting you battle another players team of 4 warriors for items. The difficulty is also a help, as even hard mode on the very first level is only completable by a level 40 plus warrior.

I'm actually a fan of the changes of the voice acting to Japanese- the game is set in 1500s Japan anyway. Besides, If they hadn't rushed to put the game out in the West then we would have had to import, and deal with Japanese menu screens as well!
Lastly, although some complain about limited character customisation (only armour and weapons sets alter), its better than no player character in the previous games!
