  1. The gaming equivalent of rocking in a corner sucking your thumb - comforting at first, but repetitive and the behaviour of those who are soft in the head. [June 2008, p.85]
  2. If you've already played Samurai Warriors and weren't exactly crazy about it, you might as well keep your money in the wallet.

    Assuming you have dipped your feet in the pool of endless Dynasty Warriors content, it's almost absurd at this point to have to pay 30 bucks for either the PS2 or Xbox 360 flavor of what is barely more than preconceived, half-assed, tacked-on downloadable content.

    I am very dispointed in the comments from the other critics. This expansion has more depth in the series then ever. You graphics improved, theI am very dispointed in the comments from the other critics. This expansion has more depth in the series then ever. You graphics improved, the gameplay is awesome, and having a rank system with unlockable skills is an A+, This game made me jump saying this game is the best yet REALLY, there is no reason why this game to be rated a 50, but it is not similar to other samurai games in all ways only few, and the really interesting thing on this game is that the movie clips and the AI is heck of alot better thus feeling like your not playing alone but with people, the NPC talk alot more bringing this game alive. There are NO FLAWS in this game. I CANT FORCE U, but i 100% consider you to buy this game or go on youtube and check it out, im dead serious, this is the best SMW game YET Full Review »
