The armies of the night number 60,000 strong, and tonight they’re all after The Warriors - a street gang wrongly accused of killing a rival gang leader. The Warriors must make their way from one end of New York to their turf on the other side of the city. All that stands between The Warriors and their survival are 20 miles and thousands of street gang members. The army of gangs owns the streets and there’s no turning back, they must fight for their lives and learn the meaning of loyalty as danger and uncertainty emerge from the city night. Based on the 1979 Paramount Pictures cult classic movie and developed by Rockstar Toronto, The Warriors expands the stylized cinematic journey of the film into a gritty interactive experience set in 1970s New York.

  1. It takes strong foundations from both the genre and the source material, then layers things on top that make the entire game a solid, intense experience throughout. It’s amazingly fun, amazingly wrong in that Rockstar kinda way, and amazingly right in every fundamental design choice. In short, Rockstar has made a modern classic with The Warriors.
  2. Where The Warriors excels is in its accessibility. There’s so much stuff to do in the game, and the manner in which you do it is very intuitive.

    Warriors succeeds because it wholly engrosses players. [Nov p.82]

    Although it's certainly not a masterpiece, The Warriors gets by on style, flair, variety, and simple fun. [Nov 2005, p.144]
  5. It isn't as diverse as "Grand Theft Auto," but you should be able to squeeze an ample degree of catharsis out of mugging people, laying down graffiti, breaking into stores, and pummeling rival gang members. I highly recommend that you watch the movie first, though.
  6. More importantly, they also nailed all the aspects that made the film so great, and the much larger adventure their tinkering yielded is certainly appreciated.

    It's when the game is at its most GTA-like that it comes alive, conjuring up scenarios that take in whole city boroughs and throwing at you groups of adversaries and challenges you have to juggle on the fly… and then you get to a tediously engineered boss encounter and it all begins to get tiresome again. [Christmas 2005, p.109]

    Enorme obra. Divertidísmo y si es en cooperativo infinitamente mejor. Ojalá Rockstar saque una segunda parte.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the game and could fully get into the story line of it. I also enjoyed the bonus missions and the bonus objectives I thoroughly enjoyed the game and could fully get into the story line of it. I also enjoyed the bonus missions and the bonus objectives within the missions. The only bad thing about the game is that it didn't go on for longer. I have played it many times and have completed 100% of the game and I greatly appreciate the creativity and imagination of the game creators for makinh levels 1-13 without any sources to go on. I love this game and would say it is probably the best game to come out on ps2. Expand

It has chapter that wernt even in the movie which adds to the gameplay (which is excelent) The storytelling is very good ass well is the voice acting with most of the original cast. The gameplay is nonstop fun, it never gets old you can be whatever gang you want, create a gang with whoever you want and when your done with the game you can do whatever you want, rome the streets, do the flashback missions, play the multiple modes it also has and the story is has alot of replay abillity i played it for atleast 40 hours all together to show how much i loved it but i would recemend this to anyone.
