    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.

    Samurai Warriors 3 proves that not all Nintendo co-productions make up for a successful game. Almost every aspect of the game is a disappointment and not even the great online co-op can save this game.
  3. Samurai Warriors 3 is yet another unimaginative entry in a series that became outdated years ago.

    The games suck. Not in a grand 'broken beyond redemption' sense, but in a more mediocre, 'nothing to see here, people' kind of way. Go spend your money on a good game. You'll be happier for it.

    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.
  6. The move to the Wii hasn't brought with it any significant changes, just more wasted potential.

    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 typeNot 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.

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. Full Review »
