    However, the real strength in this one is the way the various fascinating stories of fascinating heroes is retold, and as a result of that Samurai Warriors 4-II is one of the best games in the series for some time.

    Even if it's not a full sequel, it expands greatly for the enthusiasts of the first game. It offers dozens of gameplay hours and new features that make the game the definitive edition. Sadly, it didn't age well if we talk about graphics.

    Fans of Koei's hack and slash games will most likely find something to enjoy in Samurai Warriors 4-II - if you're in it for the overall gameplay, it's a lot of fun.

    Tons of new game modes and playable changes refresh the classic Samurai Warriors 4 hack´n slash formula.

    Samurai Warriors 4-II, as a remake of a title released just a year ago, for the few new contents introduced, is disappointing. Considering it as musou, however, is fun despite the repetitive gameplay.

    Samurai Warriors 4, title released a year ago that served to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Musou games based in feudal Japan, receives the first of its two expansions. SW 4 II is what once was known as Xtreme Legends, and includes interesting news as a new set of skills and enhanced survival mode.

    As repetitive as Musou games can be, this one is even worse because of its lack of relevant new features.

It takes the player directly to the battlefields of ancient Japan. The graphics are the best possible, given the amount of soldiers on the immense battlefields. The game really shines in campaign (story) mode. The player will take command of legendary Japanese samurai. Each mission in campaign mode reveals these samurai's motivations for taking to the battlefield. There is an endless stream of enemy soldiers as you strive to eliminate the enemy officers. Samurai Warriors 4-II provides the player with unlockable, unique, fantastical: weapons, mounts, attacks, and abilities. A single player can control up to 2 legendary samurai during each mission. After defeating a campaign the game unlocks even more to play. This results in hours upon hours of battles. There are also survival modes and co-op play. One of the survival mode occurring in a gigantic castle. With each floor steadily increasing the difficulty. If you want a fun, historical game, try the Samurai Warriors 4-II for PS4. Expand

    I honestly haven't played every Samurai Warriors episodes, but this edition is easily one of the best Musou (Dynasty Warriors-like) i everI honestly haven't played every Samurai Warriors episodes, but this edition is easily one of the best Musou (Dynasty Warriors-like) i ever played. The gameplay is nice and very addictive despite the repetitiveness due to the genre, the musics and Japanese feudal style (Sengoku era) are awesome and if the graphics are not amazing, the framerate runs at a smooth 60 fps with no tearing on PS4, even with hundreds of ennemis on screen. If you wanna kick thousand of asses while leveling up cool characters with variety of weapons and cool abilities, take a look at this game.

    What's new compared to Samurai Warriors 4 ?

    - There is a new character added to the 55 already available (yeah, just one, but a really nice one)
    - A brand new story mode more focused on characters
    - The Chronicle mode has been replaced by a cool Endless Castle mode, including Survival and Challenge modes
    - You can merged mounts and weapons to create better ones
    - New experience grid system to increase your attributes
    - A full character creation mode, from A to Z
    - On-line coop for all modes
    - Few other improvements like IA, visual effects...

    This Game is pretty good. Nothing you would call home to your mom about but it is a good solid game. This isn't the type of game you wouldThis Game is pretty good. Nothing you would call home to your mom about but it is a good solid game. This isn't the type of game you would want to spend hours on end playing unless you are trying to get the platinum, but it is the type of game you would throw on with a friend and have some mindless fun. I rate this a 6.5 (I'll round it up to 7), which isn't a bad rating, its just that the combat can get pretty repetitive and the item system feels a bit pointless after a bit, but this isn't a huge problem because its not a game you would want to waste an entire day playing. Overall this is the type of game you dont want to spend your whole paycheck on, but if you have a little money on the side, go for it. Expand

Story isn't anything noteworthy, and the gameplay is somewhat mindless and repetitive, but you know what? That's part of what makes this game fun. You don't have to think about everything that's going on. Just jump in and slice up as many armies as you want with your favorite character. A good game to relax to, but not a good game if you expect a, well, good game. Expand
