  • Summary: Without warning, the venomous Serpent King Orochi descended from the heavens. Using his unworldly powers to shatter time and space, Orochi kidnapped the strongest, wisest and most courageous warriors from Ancient China and Feudal Japan in a scheme to test his might against the heroes of these ages. In Warriors Orochi the characters from both the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors franchises must team-up to wage war against this new, yet powerful force. The game boasts an amazing roster of 79 playable characters, while four action-packed "crossover" storylines feature amazing team-ups and some long-awaited confrontations between characters from both series. Warriors Orochi for Windows-based PC features enhanced graphics (for PCs meeting the recommended system requirements) Players can adjust the anti-aliasing, textures, dynamic shadows and lighting, and even set the character count. More enemies means more KOs! [Koei] Expand

  1. What's perhaps best about Warriors Orochi is that you can play two-player split screen, with the pair of you taking on the entire story mode. [June 2008, p.84]
  2. Warriors Orochi never rises above simple hack-and-slash, but is fun, visceral and silly, with daft voice acting and Asian techno-jazz. [June 2008, p.83]
  3. 57
    Ultimately more of the same button-mashing you've seen time and time again and the content doesn't look particularly impressive on a PC, which can run much prettier (and more robust) titles.
  4. Every bit as boring as it should have been awesome on toast. Button mashing, blandness, and dodgy controls. Zzzz. [Aug 2008, p.105]
  5. Musou fans will be happy with the vast roster and RPG elements. All other players won't lose much if they steer clear from Warriors Orochi.
  6. Whatever charm the campy dialogue provides wears off after about 10 minutes, leaving you with a game that suffers from obstructive camera angles, tedious gameplay, and uninspired combat. [July 2008, p.70]
  7. Warriors Orochi is basically a semi-automatic keyboard-wearing-out application. You mash away at the keys while some bad graphics grunt at you and even worse techno grunges its ear-grating way through your speakers. [Jul 2008, p.60]
