Pirate Warriors 2 plays in a similar vein to that of the Dynasty Warriors franchise, with a few platforming elements thrown in for good measure. Similarly to the aforementioned franchise, players hack and slash their way through wave after wave of enemies–an immensely simple system. Also, combat is a pretty standard process of chaining combos together and pulling off flashy moves. The concept of constantly button mashing your way through enemies may sound repetitive, but thankfully the mashing is made fun by a varied amount of combos and some truly fluid controls.''
