    Samurai Warriors Chronicles does a fine job of bringing the shallowness and tedium of the series to the 3DS.

    Probably the least surprising game on the 3DS, but even if you do like Dynasty Warriors games this is still one of the lesser spin-offs.

    I think this game is wonderful for a launch title not because of game play but because it shows off the graphical capacity of the 3ds this game looks just as good as any wii game on the market and the pre-rendered cut scenes look better than anything I have seen on the Wii, this game is more of a tech demo to show off to your friends.

    Surpasses both SSF4 and Ridge Racer in the graphics department, Samurai Warriors is an excellent addition to the Musou series, with features that make it stand out from the rest. Unfortunately reviewers don't like using character combos and blame the games for the fact they keep mashing one button. Not the best use of 3D on the system, but some of the cutscenes will leave your mouth open. Full Review »

    I have always been a fan of Japanese anything. This game has not only provided a chance to experience being an actual samurai, it has also give users a chance to become one with the history. Now without a doubt, i know some people would like to have there name go down in history and this game gives that chance. Even though it might not be the history they want or it isn't real because it's just a game, but it's still like you are going down in history if you let you imagine wander. Full Review »
