    The first improvement is that everything is smoother.

    There is only one theme in Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes: It more closely resembles Devil May Cry than Dynasty Warriors on the current-gen consoles. The results are awesome, pretty and worthy of attention from those with even the vaguest interest in the Warriors-style hack-and-slash subgenre.

    Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes is a really enjoyable game that, although it is not a revolution in its genre, it does bring variety to engage us during many hours, despite its terrible storytelling.

    All those who miss games like Final Fight or Streets of Rage will find in Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes a nice attempt to bring back the same feelings with a different background. The action is clearly very repetitive, but there are plenty of combos and special moves to perform, a total of sixteen characters to unlock (each with its unique campaign) and some very nice graphics both for PS3 and Wii versions.

    Great visuals and over-the-top hack-n-slash awesomeness.

    This is one of the most fun and easy to pickup whup-ass beat-em-up games for the Wii! While it has an element of "history" to it, the historyThis is one of the most fun and easy to pickup whup-ass beat-em-up games for the Wii! While it has an element of "history" to it, the history doesn't get in the way of the crazy, whup ass, beat-up combos of damage you can do to hoards and hoards of enemies. While I played with it, I keep having this exciting feeling of "bring 'em on"! It's one of those games that make you feel like a real bad-ass. The key thing is simplicity that works with both an adult like me and my eldest son! The game play is all about doing much damage with as crazy combos - the excitement of achieving Super Basara Frenzy combos of up to 6000 hits without a break is just plain nuts. And super fun and exciting. I have only played 22% of my first character, Ieyasu. I am now just playing Saica to try a different style, and boy it's fun. Even though the map is similar with the different character, the gameplay and whup-ass combos are totally different, and feels fresh. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - don't listen to negative critics. You don't know what you're missing if you don't get this game. GET IT NOW, no regrets! I'll have hours and hours of fun! Full Review »
