What Gamespot Users have to say about Samurai Warriors 2

  • Review Score:7

    it's repetitive trash,but it's adictive and long, I love it

    the concept of all the warriors games(dynasty warriors,samurai warriors and warriors orochi) is always the same. You are on one side of the battlefield the enemy general is in the other side and 500-2000 enemy soldiers b... Read Full Review

    Gamespot gave this a bad rating cuz theyre racist against Asians!

    Ok First off, this game is perfect for hack n slash fans. If you like games were you can run through a battlefield and tear up hundreds of bad guys with some sweet combos, then this game was made for you! People complai... Read Full Review

    A hack and slash game. 'Nuff said.

    The first Samurai Warriors is, without a doubt, much better than the sequel. It had less characters, but it was more strategic than this one. It was worthwhile and fun to play; Samurai Warriors 2, on the other hand, wasn... Read Full Review

    Some major additions to a already wonderful game.

    This game has been made from the collection of Dynasty warrior and Samurai Warrior games into one really good package. I dare say this is the best game in the series. Additions are a array of new special attacks and a... Read Full Review

    This game is REALLY GOOD!!!!!! Trust ME!

    This game is REALLY GOOD!!!!!! Trust ME! THIS GAME IS GOOD EVERYBODY! Gamespot says it's too repetitive but the ol' Hack 'n' Slash action is just right. The difficulty isn't too hard but it isn't too easy neither. This g... Read Full Review

    This is Koei, and a Koei sequel. It is not a leap ahead, but a sequel, so if you like Koei and SW, you will like SW2.

    I think that there must be something in being forced to play a series of games from start to finish that lends itself to a somewhat effete and short-tempered reaction on the part of generally good reviewers like the game... Read Full Review

    If it isn't broken, don't fix it

    Why is it that with every "hack-n-slash" game that gamespot reviews, regardless of the intrinsic value of the game, that their ratings get progressively lower. I bought Samurai Warriors 2 yesterday and starte... Read Full Review

    Whatever you do, don't think this is the same as Dw 4 from DW3 for example. There's much more to it.

    This game was, at its heart, clearly visible, a warriors game. People always complain how the non-officers are stupid. 1) They are novice warriors. 2) Once I was killed by a captain, don't underestimate them. 3) There ar... Read Full Review

    I really thought that this was soo much better than the first Samurai Warriors, the graphics are very impressive, the story is overwhelming. For gamespot of course, they would give a game like this a low rating because ... Read Full Review
