A somewhat enchanced version of Warriors Orochi 1

User Rating: 8 | Musou Orochi: Maou Sairin PSP
Well,either way,you might as well get the Console versions since the PSP version ought to be compressed in multiple ways.

The Gameplay of Warriors Orochi 2 is still the same as before.The switching of 3 Characters and what not.However,there are several new features.For example,when your HP is low,you can press R1 to use Triple Musou Attack.It involves all 3 Characters using a very powerful attack at the expense of the Musou of only one character.There is still the Abilities,Proficiency and Level System.Abilities are passive skills you can equip in a slot for enchancements of your Characters,Proficiency widens your character's movesets but Level seems to do the same as well but Level also increases your character's parameter.There is still a Character Growth system of which you can use points to level up your character and a Weapon Fusion system that allows use to fuse weapons.However,there is also a feature that allows you to make special items out of Treasures to fit into Weapons.There is still a total of 4 Weapons per characters and there are more Costumes to wear,not only just the previous lame change of colour scheme.There is also a slight change in the move sets and there are two new typical Officers for Orochi.The previous ones are seemingly to be Technique types but the two new types are Strength and Speed types.

In most Free Mode / Story Mode Missions,there are Treasures involved as prizes if you fulfilled certain requirements rather than Characters unlike before.These Treasures are needed to get special items to fit into the slot of your weapons.

There is the Story Mode,which includes Orochi,Samurai,Shu,Wei and Wu.Samurai,Shu,Wei and Wu are sequels and Orochi Storymode seems to be a Prequel.So this is pretty much a combination of Prequel and Sequel.In Free Mode you can replay all the Story Modes you already finished.Note that there are only around 7 or 8 Missions for the Story / Free Modes per Faction.There is also a Dream Mode of which you play Missions that involved unlikely Alliances and happenings or behind the scenes events.But you need to unlock Missions in Dream Mode via Treasures or by doing certain Missions in both Story and Dream Mode.There is also a Versus Mode,of which you can play Horse-racing,Tag,Tower(Basically a knock out match) and Elimination (It's like Tag but you can't switch characters) In Versus Mode your character's level would be unaffected.There is also a Survival Mode of which you fight endless streams of Characters (It's pretty much Tag Mode to be honest) and the characters get more and more difficult as you gain more victories.You can gain points for Character Growth and Weapon Fusion in Survival as well.In Options,you can choose Japanese voices as well if you dislike the English ones.

Sun Wukong - (I written it in his character intro)

Himiko - A shaman queen whom seem to have shared some kind of connection with the Kingdom of Wei,despite the two countries' distances and warfares.However,her identity is complex since there are records in Japan,Korean and Japan of her personality and details.However,it is clear that she sent a diplomatic message to Wei for peace.

Benkei - His a monk skilled in the arts of combat and later joined Minamoto and became his right-hand man.

San Zang - Originally,San Zang is a man.He is under the mission to collect scriptures from the West and took in disciples like Wukong,Ba Jie and Sandy,whom all became very loyal to him.San Zang,however,is incapable of combat but his personality is that of a saint and he is keen to help all,even demons.However,this occasionally caused him to get into trouble as he occasionaly got captured by demons and vixens to eat his flesh as it was said that San Zang's flesh can bring Immortality.Of course,Sun Wukong always sweep these demons aside and saved San Zang with his junior disciples Ba Jie and Sandy.After the mission was done and finished but there are many different adaptations of the story but all of it have some of the same details.San Zang also have a pure white horse as his steed.

Gyuki - In mythology,Gyuki have different forms and shapes according to multiple folklores but they all seem to agree on it having a horned head.It is not unlike a Minotaur.
