Why Samurai Heroes sucks (and I haven't even played it)

GGG: Sengoku Basara, or Samurai Heroes, will hit the PS3 and Nintendo Wii in October courtesy of Capcom, and producer of Devil May Cry 4, Hiroyuki Kobayashi.

As a fan of the always-fascinating Warring States (Sengoku) period of feudal Japan, I was naturally interested to see how another developer handled the rich historical framework and intertwined character stories.

At first I couldn’t put a finger on it, but something about the game was just not as appealing to me as I'd hoped...

This is the very reason why I hate Koei games. I chose Sengoku Heroes over Koei's franchise because it was more appealing to me. You don't have to tell me the history of it because I'm pretty sure many of us know a thing or two already. This game is meant to be nonsensical and that's what I like about it. Koei games don't make any sense either, but gameplay wise got old fast.

Yeah, played the demo, wasn't that great. However, to this article, Sengoku Basara is more toward its Anime counterpart vs being like samurai warriors where it's base on Fictional History. Gameplay may be similar, but it stills plays different. With what I played of the demo, I'd go with Samurai Warriors as well.

I guess the author would've preferred the game if it featured plain-looking guys in castles looking at maps and talking in Japanese. Because that's what half these historical figures were up to.

That was a large part of the Kessen series and I loved those games. Unfortunately Koei can make a good game save their lives.

I played a game called Mystic Heros back in the gamecube/ps2 days. Loved the elemental powers, anime inspired graphics and boss battles. After that..those types of games kinda fell off my radar but that game was pretty sweet.

Dude... this guy clearly never played Devil Kings!

i love how people are quick to judge the game without knowing its proper background. Sengoku Basara is an anime based on the game devil kings which is now being a game. i think the game is pure fun. i dont know why people have to bitch so much. any dynasty / samurai warrior type of game is awesome. koei is good when it comes to this. the only difference between the two is one is more fictional than the other.

The funny thing is that people complain about this stuff, yet praise Madden and other games that don't change it up too much. >_>
