    The first improvement is that everything is smoother.

    Overall, it's a far more enjoyable experience than you'll find in most of the Dynasty Warriors series, and it's nice to see some competition for the a game type that doesn't get a lot of love in the Western side of the world.

    Unashamedly dated, but still surprisingly addictive and good fun if Warriors games are your bag. [Issue#198, p.95]

    Mindless, but glorious button-mashing fun, full of crazy characters and over-the-top moves.

    If you have played Devil Kings or any of the Dynasty Warriors/Samurai Warriors series then you likely will have a pretty good idea of what youIf you have played Devil Kings or any of the Dynasty Warriors/Samurai Warriors series then you likely will have a pretty good idea of what you are getting yourself into with this game. What really sets this game apart is how completely over the top it is! The gameplay is fast and smooth with not so much as a blip in framerate. The selection of characters is good, but the Sengoku Basara of historical figures that you may be familiar with from the Samurai Warriors frachise will likely be quite different than you are used to. I'm a huge fan of this genre of games and Sengoku Basara is really able to add some new excitement and freshness to the genre without making it seem too different. My only real complaint about the game at all is that Uesugi Kenshin sounds really, really, really weird. That idiosyncratic complaint aside, the game is fast, fun, and completely worthy of your time if you are a fan this genre of games. If you've never played any of the Warriors games, this would be a good place to start. Its not overly difficult, but challenging enough to be fun. There are tons of unlockables and upgrades for your charcters too.

    I'm not typically one to complain about other reviews, but some of the critics who rated this game negatively obviously don't like this style of game. If you do like these types of games or mindless action in general, I assure you it is totally fun and worth playing.

    It's an over the top game which hinges on style and works best when the difficulty is set at maximum, though the technicality of the gameplayIt's an over the top game which hinges on style and works best when the difficulty is set at maximum, though the technicality of the gameplay is minuscule by comparison to Godhand. But either way the game will suffer the same critical fate, forever doomed to misunderstanding and exile. It's worth a try by any measure of quality though. Full Review »
