The game has good 3d and the publishers update the game all the time. That is the good stuff. Unfortunately, The games camera and controls feel like they are from 1998. Also, the game play is hack and slash and hack and slash and hack and no blood!?!?? I really wish this one had been better.

I bought this because of the lack of 3DS games, and actually like it. The levels last around 10 minutes each, there are TONS of levels to do, lots of upgrades, abilities, and overall just a lot of gameplay.
In 3D this game looks amazing, the background looks as if you could reach into it (which isn't done as well as in other 3DS games I've played so far). The Japanese language that plays is also fun to listen to, although I can't be sure if it's actually saying what the English text is saying.
It can get a little boring, since you do the same thing over and over and over (get orders, hack through enemies, kill general, repeat) but is great fun whenever you're bored. I think this is at least worth a rental.
So I start up the game and man do I find out the hard way that is only has English subtitles... It doesn't seem all that bad until you realize that in mid battle you have to read things wasting precious time in the midst of missions because without reading them, one can get very lost. I do not have much of an issue with that, but the constant having to read in the middle of battle takes away from my focus and I get frustrated when I do not finish enough missions because of it. I love the way the game works. It goes smoothly and there are two unique fighting styles you can choose from at the beginning. Because of no English Dubbing, it makes it a lot harder than it should be. If you miss the wrong sentence, then a lot of a fight will be lost to you because you missed something.
Fun? Yes. It is about the same as other Samurai Warriors titles in that it handles beautifully. If you are looking for different types of gameplay from KOEI, do not go here. If you love the style then you will be pleased.
You can switch between characters on the field and take their place where they are on the field. It makes getting missions done more fast paced, but less able to concentrate on one character. The commands are also there where you can tell them where to advance to.
Though it is all a wash, rinse, repeat method of fighting, there is a little bit of extra control being able to command those who you do not currently control.
I rate this game a 6.5, but round up to 7 because the chart won't let me choose otherwise.
