    All in all, this is an excellent, fully featured rendition of one of the best Dynasty Warriors games on the market.

    It’s one solid time-travelling time sink.

    Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate represents the latest and final update of the most complete Musou ever released. His new characters and modes make it a highly recommended game for fans of the genre.
  5. For once a musou game that doesn't take the slash. A must for genre fans who missed the original's release. [November 2014, p74]

    Depending on what games you've played before, you'll find more or fewer additions, but this is a great musou, with a deep combat system and some charismatic cameos.

And no, I'm not hating on Bejeweled, but it's basically just something satisfying that you do to waste time. Swing your weapon around, and watch enemies die: that's the game. Repeat. It does have a particularly satisfying sense of progression, though - your favorite character goes from feeble to undefeatable in a fairly linear and satisfying way, and if you ever want to ramp up the difficulty, there are always a hundred more characters you've never considered playing with who are still enfeebled. Overall, I'd categorize this game as a guilty pleasure; it's the kind of game you might sink forty hours into and then insist to your friends that you were playing something that was actually good.

There's a ridiculous number of characters to use, and it will take an ungodly amount of time to maximize them all. However, there's little reason or incentive to. I think it's the best Warriors / Musuo game to date, but it may be time they try at least a little innovation?

    My biggest gripe is the amount of times I lose suddenly out of nowhere because I was in the wrong location, with no indication where the right location was. It feels like the illusion of choice. I am led to believe it's open and I can go anywhere and fight anyone, explore around a bit. In reality, there's a right place to be and a wrong place to be and figuring that out is the entirety of the game.
