During one battle, a lone mercenary, Guts, attracts the attention of the mercenaries of the Band of the Hawk, and is ambushed by some of them on the road. After losing in a duel to the leader of the Hawks, Griffith, Guts is forced to join their band, where he acquires many new comrades, including a woman named Casca, a Unit Commander in the band. With Guts fighting as the Raiders Captain, the Band of the Hawk continues to come off victorious in all of their battles, and finally earns recognition from the King of Midland himself. Fighting now under the Midland banner, the Band raids a castle occupied by a legendary swordsman and rumored immortal named Nosferatu Zodd. Zodd defeats both Guts and Griffith, but in the last moment he notices the Crimson Behelit that Griffith wears around his neck, and leaves without killing them. The Band of the Hawk continues to gain fame on the battlefield, and in the end, using only 5000 men fighting with their backs to the river, manages to capture the impregnable Fortress of Doldrey. This victory brings the end to the war between Midland and Chuder. [KOEI] Expand

    For those familiar with other Warriors titles you'll likely know what to expect, the combat is repetitive and makes the game feel like a chore to be completed rather than being fun and empowering. Those who haven't ventured into the world of Berserk before will likely enjoy the fascinating story however it is hard to recommend this game on that premise alone.

    Hardly innovative and technically flawed, Berserk and the Band of the Hawk never really manages to deliver anything remarkable.

    Berserk is the one of the best hand held game ever found there is, from poor Guts the main character to the full Berserker Armor of the richerBerserk is the one of the best hand held game ever found there is, from poor Guts the main character to the full Berserker Armor of the richer day this game only flaw is time and repetition. Not enough to deter it though, it is fine on a vehicle so long as the path is not the issue, can get addictive or play for hours but the charm is there and the game is fine to keep around as well. Good cartridge for the playstation vita. As for computer emulations or game as whole - the vampire hunter d might be the match it will be overwhelmed from. Expand
