Improving virtually every aspect of Warriors Orochi 2 in graphics gameplay challenge fun and replay value. There's a bunch of new characters from an already enormous roster list. The chaos mode is really difficult (which is an improvement over the 2nd one), they improved abilities and weaponry by making it easier and more understandable- and for that matter less cheap. Also in a lot of ways- while some characters still aren't perfect, almost are the characters are playable if not excellent. The storyline is at best decent but thats still a drastic improvement from it's old "Orochi just showed up and everything went to crap" story. On that note, there are an enormous amount of stages to choose from and all of them are fun. The only thing I miss a little is that there is only ONE story mode instead of several. But in a way it makes the game more uniform and less confusing on the story. But the fluidity of this game has never been better and I haven't had such a good time on Koei games since this one. And it being on the Wii U made it even better. HD is amazing, incredibly sharp, and being able to post easily on the Miiverse with other lovers of the game is great. The battle mode is ridiculous but all the more fun to do. Making your own stages is ridiculous. Oh and also- there's a few more characters and levels to choose from in the Hyper edition. Did I mention the online is awesome too? Even better still is the ability to play 2 players. And if you don't want to split the screen you can play on the Wii U pad and the other play on the TV. It's phenomenal!
The short version: This game rocks harder than the other DW and SW and OW games before it. If you like those, you'll love this. If beat em ups aren't your thing you won't like it. But if you haven't played any of them in the series this is a great place to start and have a blast with a buddy! One of the best games co-op games of all time- and on the Wii U it's even better. The Wii U is great, this game is great. Fun for everyone!… Expand
