DarkZero: Samurai Warriors 2 Review

There is literally no difference between the PC and the Xbox versions of the game, apart from the clunky keyboard controls, but feel to buy a game pad or map the keys to places you find easier to use… all 17 of them! The choice is situation specific, and so DarkZero leave the decision up to you.

First footage of Samurai Warrior 4-II’s Survival Mode

Famitsu has published the first gameplay video of Samurai Warrior 4-II‘s “Survival Mode” (or “Infinite Castle”).

Is this historically accurate?

Okay. I clicked on the video because of the picture.

The Survival Mode looks good. I love the Survival Mode from Samurai Warriors 1.
Day 1 buy!

No Way of the Samurai? Fail.

GrizzliS19873836d ago

only game i wanted to see, then i see your comment. sigh

NukaCola3836d ago

I loved Way of the Samurai.

I really wish someone would take on the open world samurai game. I would love to play as a wandering samurai who gets into all kinds of classic stuff. If only it happened,,,

3-4-53836d ago

This article is why you make AT LEAST Top 10 lists.

Top 5 never covers everything because there is NEVER JUST 5 at the top.

The next 5 behind those are arguably just as good.

izumo_lee3836d ago

What where is Bushido Blade!? That game was epic as sh*t!

Inception3836d ago (Edited 3836d ago )

Agreed. They even left Samurai Showdown / Spirit from the list :(

And do you remember Soul of the Samurai by Konami on PS1?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Very underrated title >.<

Too bad SEGA doesn't localize Yakuza Kenzan. But i hope the localize Yakuza Ishin (crossing my fingers)...

edit:
Anyone play Seven Samurai 20xx for PS2? I don't have the chance to play it. But i heard it's good.

exceeding093836d ago

I know Samurai Showdown, a classic, and Soul of the Samurai. As I commented, there are many samurai games to choose from and its difficult to choose the top 5, with other people's opinions. After all, my article is an opinion piece.

Inception3836d ago (Edited 3836d ago )

Well i knew it's just an opinion. But at least you can mention some of their names on your article. So, your readers knew that you still appreciate the titles, even all of those titles doesn't make on your top five list. Just my little suggestion. No offence ok :)

Clarence3836d ago

Thank you. Those one slice kills were always fun.

izumo_lee3836d ago

I loved how strategic the game was as well. Running around the open field trying to find an opening & cursing when your arm is injured & have to go one handed.

Also the lack of music when you battle gave the fights a more realistic feel. You only hear your swords clang & the ambient sounds around you.

Great game by Square when they were experimenting more often with their titles.

exceeding093836d ago

I have and played Bushido Blade before and its a wonderful game. It was difficult to choose from the many samurai games out there for the top 5.

exceeding093836d ago (Edited 3836d ago )

I appreciate the comments, negative and positive. Since its an opinion piece, everyone's opinions are different and not everyone is going to agree. Kessen was also a good game too. The list could go to Top 6, Top 10, Top 20, Top 50 and so on. There are many samurai games to decide from and could be difficult to choose for the top 5.

Please add your own Top 5 Samurai Games to the comments.

Too many SKUs.
I know that's their style as usual, but... *sigh*

ChipChipperson3932d ago

Awesome. I'm curious if this means that there will be news about Samurai Warriors 4 very soon.

Andreas-Sword3932d ago

I think Samurai Warriors 4 will be maybe a PS4 exclusive. I hope.
Or the game will come to the current gen consoles, and to the next gen consoles.
