Don't let the lame reviews, deteriorate you from playing this fun game! I've been waiting for this game since it released in Japan awhile back, and boy was it worth the wait. From the amazing dub, to the crazy combos, Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes, will entertain the bored.
Graphics-Decent. The character models are good, and the environments are nice to look at. From Snowy mountains, to Deserts, and Old temples. It has pretty much all that and more scattered through the battle scenarios that are laid out for you.
Gameplay-This is where the fun kicks in. You can literally pull off a thousand hit combo, like no tomorrow. It's quite fun to mix and match your attacks! Especially once you've leveled up your attacks even more. I'd go more into the combo system, and the system mechanics....but I don't have enough space for that. Just know that you'll be pressing the Square and Triangle button a lot.(Don't let that scare you away)
Sound-Outstanding! The Dub is filled with a cast of amazing voice actors! You have your creepy voices, your calm ones, your crazy ones, and your "wtff" ones. They're all quite good. They actually brought the characters to life for me. So I give the acting a, A+. The music ranges from rock, to beautiful japanese type music. It's all real nice to listen to. Mostly all the songs fit the mood, of what is going on.
Online-No online play. Please don't let that stop you from playing it either.
Overall-There's a lot I wanted to put in this review. I wanted to list a lot of facts, and actors. Sadly I can't, cause my space is running out. If you want a game that is over the top fun, then this is it. It's a hack n slash, so of course, there's repetition involved, but it's all fun.
I think Capcom did a amazing job localizing it here. And I thank them for it. The director for the voice acting, deserves praise too. I've never, ever heard such a hack n slash, have such passion in the voice acting.

I was floored by how poor the reviews for this game were! Capcom has taken a formula Koei has used for years and excelled at it.
To sum this game up, take Dynasty Warriors. Then take away the convoluted, political aspect of the storyline. Then add in more colorful graphics, more interesting characters with a wider variety of weapons, and flashier elemental super powers.
If you're still not convinced, I highly recommend you get the demo from the Playstation Network. It lets you play two entire levels as two of the game's main characters. It's also a free download, so you have nothing to lose!

I'm gonna try to keep this short, if your like me who loved playing the Dynasty Warriors/Samurai Warriors/Warriors Orochi games you will love Samurai Heroes. Like i said in my title This game is a mix of DMC and Dynasty Warriors. The gameplay is still similar you know there's camps you have to take over generals and such but the combat is 100x better. Dynasty Warriors the combos was S,S,S,S,T or S,S,S,T etc and you have your Musuo attack in this game each character have there own feel to there combat. The combat in Samurai Heroes feels more like a fighting game you can cancel out of moves dash cancel etc. You have a Musuo type attack but you also have super arts that you can use. The combat is just amazing compared to any Dynasty Warrior game that came out to date.
The Story is pretty good as well there's a lot of things you can do with each character different story paths things like that. The Voice Acting is pretty good as well even though i never cared about those things when it came to Dynasty Warriors it was mainly about the game play but they actually did a good job with that and the music is good as well. The weapon system is great as well in this game you find weapons with slots "6 is the max slots" and you can put whatever accessory you want from boosting your element %chance "each character have there own specific element weapon"to boosting your attack,defense,HP etc.
In the end if your a person like me who loved them some Dynasty Warriors/Samurai Warriors/Warriors Orochi then you will love this game. Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes make every Dynasty Warriors/Samurai Warriors/Warriors Orochi look bad, the combat is just to good each character feels completely different and you will always figure out different ways to cancel out of different moves to add more hits to your combos. I'm not exaggerating each character feels completely different not just there move list but the way they move/jump, what moves they can cancel out of etc.
