    This game does little justice to either of its predecessors. That said, the gameplay is typical of a Koei game, with plenty of hack and slash and a new feature that is at times annoying: that being, the ability to switch between up to 3 characters at a time. While innovative, this takes away from any sliver of realism that remained in this type of game. Also, it's rather annoying This game does little justice to either of its predecessors.

While innovative, this takes away from any sliver of realism that remained in this type of game. Also, it's rather annoying when you accidentally switch characters in the middle of an important battle and end up losing. The Interim Save feature seems broken as well. Also, the camera is insane. Other than that, it's typical KOEI fare. Even the achievements aren't special. Expand

    Proceed cautiously with this one. It's certainly not terrible, but it's not a great action game either.
  2. Oh, how many restless nights have I spent yearning for a Koei game that would combine the worst parts of "Dynasty Warriors" with those of "Samurai Warriors"! [Oct 2007, p.113]
  3. It would've been nice to see Omega Software's Warriors series move forward with Orochi but unfortunately it seems to have stood fairly still in its mediocre hollow of repetitive combat/strategy gaming. Not much fun even if you were playing it on a very rainy day.
