  • Summary: Without warning, the 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 to test his might against the heroes of these ages. Most of the great armies of these two periods would succumb to the might of Orochi. Yet powerful warriors remain and are ready to continue the fight. Now, the greatest showdown in history is about to take place. [Koei] Collapse

  1. With over 70 playable characters, you're sure to be going for a while. [Nov 2007, p.89]
  2. Warriors Orochi combines the characters and features of two successful franchises into one game, but the convoluted crossover storyline, unimpressive production values, and lack of major innovation aren’t likely to have new players ready to enlist.
  3. It's the same solid game you've been playing since "Dynasty Warriors 2" came out back in 2000.
  4. Warriors Orochi is another fanservice game, plain and simple, and really doesn't appeal to gamers who don't appreciate the "been there, done that" rehash. Because really, despite a few small upgrades, that's all this is.
  5. If you’ve not been convinced by Koei’s previous games then Warriors Orochi is unlikely to persuade you otherwise.
  6. Koei's apologists will find Warriors Orochi to be an affable bit of fan service, but everyone else should just stay far away.
  7. As expected Warriors Orochi can only be an attractive proposition to dedicated fans of either series or even then only the most loyal of elite.
