IGN writes: "I think that on most occasions the term "button-mashing" has generated a very negative stigma. When gamers hear the term associated with a particular title, they become wary of said title and mentally classify it under a very distinct and repetitive experience. But for some gamers, button-mashing isn't necessarily a bad thing, and that's very clear when looking at the fan following of Koei's various Warriors franchises, which are almost universally labeled as button-mashers. Some people just enjoy that kind of experience and that's what you're going to get when you play Warriors Orochi on the PC.
Warriors Orochi was first released on the 360 and PS2 last September and just recently made an appearance on the PSP in a somewhat scaled back, but still respectable, portable form. Now the title has wound its way into the world of digital distribution and can be downloaded for $29.99. In case you haven't kept up with the previous versions, Warriors Orochi combines the worlds of the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors series together to form an all-out battle against the demon lord Orochi and his sinister legions.
