    This game, like all games in the Musou series, suffers from lack of innovation. I understand that, in the name of historical accuracy, they can't change the story line too much; however, that doesn't mean that the storytelling has to be so horrendous. The combat is tedious, and as always, the enemy soldiers all look like lifeless clones. Now the graphics, apart from many character models,This game, like all games in the Musou series, suffers from lack of innovation. I understand that, in the name of historical accuracy, they can't change the story line too much; however, that doesn't mean that the storytelling has to be so horrendous. The combat is tedious, and as always, the enemy soldiers all look like lifeless clones. Now the graphics, apart from many character models, are good but that doesn't validate a high score in and of itself. Each Musou game simply progresses inch by inch, adding small features in each installment which just makes the serious horrendous as a whole, this one being no exception. Expand

    Fans of hack 'n' slays and an affinity for Japan can't do anything wrong by picking up this title.

    There could have been so much more to Samurai Warriors Chronicles…but there isn't. Unlike its source material, this game will never make history.

    Samurai Warriors: Chronicles is, above all, a Musou. And anyone willing to play a Musou must be prepared to deal with the excessive repetition.
