    I could only recommend this game to the hardest of the hardcore Warriors enthusiasts who can completely disregard the overwhelming (and apparently increasing) number of problems that plague this title.
  2. Warriors Orochi 2 elevates hack-and-slash action to amazing levels of repetitive boredom.
  3. The truth is that the series’ hack-and-slash formula that had so captivated us is starting to get old.
  4. Overall, Warriors Orochi 2 is a solid game, but the repetitive gameplay and missions that make up the majority of the game prevent it from being anything more than a rental.

    While it's not really fair to judge the last generation's hardware by the standards of the next one, the PS2 versions of these games are getting harder and harder on the eyes. Koei's development teams have done their best to keep up, and the character modeling here is still pretty impressive, but the drab backgrounds and draw-in show the age of the technology.
  6. It's the same game you've been playing a long time ago. At least Koei fanatics might be satisfied with the formula.
  7. Fans of the series will be thrilled by the extent of the game. In addition, the enormous play time offered outplays the competition in this field.
  8. The game does very little to dispel the notion that if you've played one Warriors game, you've played them all. [Dec 2008, p.92]
  9. Warriors Orochi 2 lacks a purpose to exist, even less to justify your time or a place in your collection.

    This game easily beats Warriors Orochi 3. If you thought Dynasty Warriors was addicted and long, then be ready for what Dream Mode has to offer for you. Full Review »
