  • Summary: Making its debut exclusively on Wii, Samurai Warriors 3 takes total advantage of Nintendo's new Classic Controller PRO.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 7 out of 26

  1. Samurai Warriors 3 is a massive game, rich with contents and stuff. It is also a visually impressive title and in spite of a repetitive gameplay it is fun and enjoyable. Deep customization, multiple options and game modes, nifty multiplayer support: this 3D beat'em-up is certainly not a game which can appeal everyone.
  2. If you got bored with hack-n-slash games a long time ago – and I place myself in that category – then Samurai Warriors 3 just might be the game to pique your interest again with its mixture of huge battles, strategic planning and historical significance.
  3. Samurai warriors 3 is a remarkable game on wii and probably the best episode from the franchise.
  4. I'd had my fill of destruction after an hour or two. [Nov 2010, p.87]

    It's not a bad title, but it's not a particularly good one either, and it just gets too 'samey' too quickly.
  6. 45
    While you will have to endure the game's horrible gameplay in order to gain access to this content, those who stick to the game will ultimately be rewarded with a rather satisfying game.
  7. 30
    If repetition and mindlessness is what you're looking for in your life, go do some pushups or eat cupcakes till you're sick – either would be more satisfying than purchasing and playing Samurai Warriors 3.

    This game is super fun. I've been playing it for a year now. It has an online mode where you can play with friends, and each character has their own special moveset/abilities. There's tons of weapons to make a custom character with, though the clothing options are a bit limited. Expand

    Not nearly as bad as I was expecting! This was a birthday gift and though it looked a bit lame it turned out to be good. If you like this type of game there is nothing that should keep you away from this except that it gets a little repetitive, but I didn't find it was so much so that I had to stop. It's a solid game and fans of the genre should pick it up. If you are delving into the genre for the first time, this might be a decent starting point but don't hold it as the standard for the genre.
