    Now Playing: The Warriors Video Review

    Rockstar Games' PS2 and Xbox classic The Warriors is now available to download and play on the PlayStation 4.

    The Warriors is based on the movie of the same name and, unlike the studio's Grand Theft Auto series, is focused more on brawling. It is available on the PlayStation store for £11.99.

    "New York, 1979. A battle on the streets. 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," reads the product description.

    "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 PS4 version features "full 1080p up-rendering and enhanced features such as Trophies, Shareplay, Remote Play, Activity Feeds and Second Screen support for game manuals with PS Vita or PS App."

    The product description notes that the game was converted from the PS2 version and, as a result, there "may be times where the title plays differently from the PS2 version."

    The Warriors was first released for PS2 and Xbox in 2005. It was then re-released for PlayStation 3 in 2013. In GameSpot's The Warriors review, it was awarded an 8.6.

    "With its unrelenting obsession with nailing the details of the film's universe, its quality action, and its breadth of content, The Warriors is easily one of the better pure-action games to come out this year," said reviewer Alex Navarro.

    "It's a game that clearly goes out of its way to do more than just rehash a previously told story, as many games based on films tend to do. Again, though, this is not a game in which you have to have seen the original movie to understand and enjoy it; but if anything, it'll make you want to go out of your way to see the movie, just to see how it plays out and compares to the game experience."

    Why would I want to download one of the best movie-to-game adaptations ever made, even though I still own it on PS2?

    Remember back when it was released they did a mural back in Coney Island, right on the boardwalk, on the side of one the buildings. Played the game and it was way better than I thought it would be. Check out the move if you haven't, you'll be able to see old New York and shirtless guys with just a vest on, can you dig it? can you dig it? CAN YOU DIIIIIG IT?

    I loved how the game started out like a prequel, 3 months before the events of the movie, but 3 quarters through you play through the events of the actual movie too, so awesome. One of the best games ever.

    I was wondering if they only released it in Europe by that price tag. I clicked it and now I'm glad they have it in America. It's weird they put euros. No bashing on Euros here but normally gamespot puts dollars in every article unless something is only released in another country.

    @jose_consuela: that would be british pound, the euro sign looks like this: €. judging from the pound-price it'll probably be 15$ / 15€.

    I'd rather play the XBox version in 720p. It has FAR better textures, lighting, and shadows than the PS2 version.

    WHY do they insist on porting the inferior PS2 versions to PS4? Port the XBox versions (or, pc versions for games like Max Payne). I'm quite sure the PS4 can handle it.

    Teaser: "Warriors, Come out to play". Maaan that does not read like it sounds.

    (I would go "Wahwiahs, come out to playiyayyy")

    I still don't see why if I paid for this on PS3, I can't just have it on PS4. Or at least upgrade it for a nominal charge.

    @batusai4ever: The Warriors is the best movie licensed game ever made. It beats the hell out of most games from current and last gen.

    @batusai4ever: A lot of people will gladly play it again on the newer console. You don't have to buy it, just go about your life..

    @Duffy12323: and that's why they keep feeding us the same old games, because of people like you that keep the milking alive and dev's aren't forced to create new games. Why would they??? They just say "Hey, that Duffy12323 will pay again for a 10-20 year old game so why bother getting creative"

    @batusai4ever: As if the teams doing ports and remasters are the same teams working on new games. All this stuff is small, secondary teams or completely outsourced.

    I love these dime-a-dozens comments: "Durr, why are they wasting time and money on retro ports and remasters when it could be going to new games!?"

    @7tizz: I to have the og xbox version, and maybe u had to play it at the time it came out. But a lot of the things u do in the game, just weren't being done in other games. Me and my friend had a blast playing co-op back in the day, and the roof top rumble's, unbelievable for the time!!!

    Why not simply say Rockstar? This is an ugly ass title.

    I remember when The Warriors was re-released on the PS3 as download. It's fantastic to see that once again Xbox goes completely forgotten for a re-release of their version.

    @Maxx_the_Slash: looked like crap on the ps3 much like psychonauts looked horrible, let's hope this gets more than a upres.

    Wish they'd use the Xbox version it was the superior version.

    It was a great game for its time. I don't want nor have time to revisit it, but to anyone who haven't played The Warriors...it's a classic
