    It is worth a glance, but if you bore easily you may find this doesn't have the 'wow' gameplay factor to hold your interest for long, and would probably be better off looking elsewhere ultimately.
  2. Sadly, The Warriors is never more than running about smashing people's heads in to cool 1970s music and listening to clichéd gang speak. We demand more these days. [PSW]

    For every awful moment in The Warriors, there are two great ones. The mix of story, nostalgia and out-and-out combat is a heady concoction and when it all clicks, it's thoroughly enjoyable. [Dec 2005, p.120]

    An enjoyable beat-'em-up that does the movie justice. But there's little more than a basic scrolling brawler under all the great ideas. [Nov 2005, p.84]

    It's when the game is at its most GTA-like that it comes alive, conjuring up scenarios that take in whole city boroughs and throwing at you groups of adversaries and challenges you have to juggle on the fly… and then you get to a tediously engineered boss encounter and it all begins to get tiresome again. [Christmas 2005, p.109]

As I've written in my other reviews, I like good co-op games. And this was a nice game too. Wasn't much tough, but liked the game in general. Free roam's area was not that big, so that was a negative point, and there were not much things to do in free roam. Still, give it a try if a fan of co-op games. Full Review »

De même, l'interface et le maniement sont nuls, le jeu n'est pas beau et son intérêt est inférieur ou égal à zéro. Un jeu qui fait pitié et qui ne mérite qu'un zéro pointé. Full Review »
