  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. Despite occasionally getting lost and feeling overwhelmed by all the options and moves, Samurai Warriors 3 is a real treat and it's easy to see why Nintendo secured it exclusively for the Wii. Although there is a ton of content, the gameplay is structured in bite-sized pieces so players can make some serious accomplishments in a short span of time.
  4. You already know whether or not this game appeals to you. If you're a long-term Warriors hater, then nothing this game does will appeal to you. If you're even a casual fan, however, this is one of the best examples of the series out there.

    Given the fact that this is the franchise's real debut on a Nintendo console and Wii's success in bringing in new gamers, Samurai Warriors 3 is going to be the first chance for many gamers to try this controversial series, and to those people I definitely recommend at least giving it a try.

    Samurai Warriors 3 is strictly for hardcore fans who already know what they're getting, or the newcomer who has yet to experience the series. It's definitely friendly for new players, but it's not going to deter the people who hate these games from bashing it on their forum of choice.
  7. Samurai warriors 3 is a remarkable game on wii and probably the best episode from the franchise.

    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 »
