    This is the definitive version of this game and those with next gen consoles and a love for the franchise should absolutely pick this up.

    If you love the genre, this is like an all-star package; and even for those a little cold on the idea of the games this is definitely worth a look.

    Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate is like an encyclopedia of the Musou series condensed in a single game, with a metric ton of contents rendered in a rock-solid 60fps frame-rate. Its old-gen legacy is however still too strong, compromising the entire production.

    This Ultimate edition represents for Warriors Orochi what the Xtreme Legends Complete Edition represented for Dynasty Warriors: great content compendium of the old saga tradition but poor technological innovation for the new console generation. It's time to use tech force, Omega Force.

    It's literally just a case of run in, kill a bunch of things and find the exit. [Issue#116, p.76]
  6. There's hidden depth beyond the ugly exterior. [Nov 2014, p.87]

    Fans of the series will chastise us for rating it so low, and that’s probably fair. If you’re a fan, you’ll enjoy it due to the sheer amount of characters on hand from all of the Warriors universes, and that over-the-top hack and slash gameplay that you already like. If you’re not already deeply involved with any of the franchises though, you’re going to find a game that is inescapably fun at times and that shows an awful lot of promise, but which is ultimately let down by some poor design decisions and some somewhat dodgy AI.

    This game is an Xbox One version of the game released for PlayStation 3/Wii U that was called Orochi 2. It has added a gauntlet challengeThis game is an Xbox One version of the game released for PlayStation 3/Wii U that was called Orochi 2. It has added a gauntlet challenge mode. At it's core it's a simple hack and slash game. Where you are a general, put on a historical ancient Asian battlefield and your actions can change history. But Orochi adds famous Samurai along with the legendary Chinese generals. How do you put Chinese and Samurai generals from different feudal eras together in one game? You throw in a story Godzilla would be proud of. Which makes perfect sense, since this series is immensely popular in Japan. The game features 145 characters you can unlock. It features a 2 player co-op and 2 player online mode. The story is fully voice acted in Japanese with English subtitles. The story won't win any prizes. The instructions are weak, but it's simple enough for anyone to learn. If you loved the Dynasty warriors series you will love this game. Expand
