  • Summary: Without warning, the Serpent King Orochi descended from the heavens. Using his unworldly powers to shatter time and space, Orochi kidnapped the strongest, wisest and most courageous warriors from Ancient China and Feudal Japan to test his might against the heroes of these ages. Most of the great armies of these two periods would succumb to the might of Orochi. Yet powerful warriors remain and are ready to continue the fight. Now, the greatest showdown in history is about to take place. [Koei] Expand

  1. A substatial no-frills package. [Dec 2007, p.82]
  2. Throw in some of the options that were removed from this release, such as new officer and duel modes, and they'll have plenty enough to land another $60 from the fans.
  3. It's just a shame that compared to the innovative excellence of Koei's other battlefield titles like Bladestorm or Gundam Musou, or even just Samurai Warriors 2, Warriors Orochi falls a little short.
  4. While the game can be fun in small doses, the countless hours of hacking and slashing required to complete the levels is enough to drive a gamer batty.
  5. Warriors: Orochi is the very definition of shallow gaming. There is not much to like here, at least not anything that you will not get very tired of half-an-hour in.
  6. With fantastic story lines, but without the fully realized team system, Warriors Orochi appeals much more to old fans than it does draw in new ones.
  7. Do not play Warriors Orochi. You'll be in desperate need of high-caliber pain-killers to stomach all that cheese.

    The best installment to date of this genre of game. Now I am not surprised to see so many mediocre ratings, as in all honesty, compared to other games from other genres, this is about a 6/10, but for this genre, the Koei pioneered Asian-With-Giant-Halberd-Hack-And-Slash, its a 9/10. Expand
