I am a big fan of the franchise. Since I play both Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors, it was awesome for me to see warriors of both games meet each other and battle together. The game provides a good story and a challeging gameplay. The new Dream Mode gives players more challenges to conquer. I also like how you can be 3 warriors at the same time instead of just 1 throughout a battle. I played and will keep on playing these series. Fan of the series will not be dissappointed.

Ive been a fan of the series since I first played the DW3 demo back in 2001, and have played all the games from then till now. Now onto the game.

I just finished this game completely. The game continues from the original Warriors Orochi. The new characters are a nice addition to the game. The story is ok. To correct a previous reviewer, you dont start with a horse, once you get the ability and you equip it you get a horse, the higher the level of it, the faster the horse. Also, when there are a lot of characters onscreen it does slowdown, when I first got the game back in sept, I was playing Shu story mode and the last battle was running at like 10fps at some parts, they released a patch afterwards making it run a lot better.

Dream mode is also a nice addition, if you are looking to finish every one of them you will have to put in a lot of hours just to unlock them all. 3 vs 3 survival mode is fun to, its kinda like Marvel Vs Capcom 2.

Overall this game is like the original, only more to do, if you liked the original, check this one out.

First off, I want to say that I am a fan of the series and I enjoyed the game, but there were some changes that did not sit well with me. The gameplay has not changed so for hardcore fans there is no need to worry and the vast number of characters is still there.
You no longer choose a horse but are given one from the start. If you find a better horse you need to simply ride it and it will be yours.
One other change is to the weapons. You no longer have to find different weapons and combine them to get the stats you want, although that is still an option. Now by completing certain objectives you unlock crystals which can be sold for upgrades.
There is the inclusion of Dream mode. In Dream mode three characters are teamed up and put in a special level scenario. There are a total of 28 stages.
There was only one problem with the games performence. During gameplay the game would slow down for a little. I do not know if this was a common occurence or if it was just me.
