Review by Justin Fassino on January 17, 2008:
"Samurai Warriors: Katana on the whole is simply a simple, unpolished action game. The music is comprised of simple, repetitive loops that are just begging for the mute button, the voice acting is absolutely atrocious, the plot of each campaign is held tenuously together by the slimmest of threads, and the most important part of a game, the gameplay, is shallow and unsatisfying. The minor RPG-like elements of stat-building and equipment selection don't really help to deepen what is an ultimately unfulfilling experience in medieval Nippon."
+ Getting to brush up on feudal Japan history… again
- Repetitive enemy models and backgrounds
- Poor graphics
- Tedious and glitchy boss fights
Score: 1 out of 5 stars
