Siliconera: "Last year, Koei released Warriors Orochi, a game which mashed together characters and settings from both the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors franchises. Now comes Warriors Orochi 2, which continues the story of the first game in the series, as well as adding several new characters and features into the mix. Now, before I get started here, I'd just like to say that this isn't really going to be your standard review style article. If you're reading this, you more than likely know what to expect from a Warriors game. Hordes of enemy soldiers being cut down by not-quite-historically-accurate representations of figures from Chinese and/or Japanese history. Instead, I'll be detailing the differences between the two games in the series, to help you decide if Warriors Orochi 2 is worth your gaming dollar."
