I got this game for my GF and we've been playing it over the last couple of days.. it's pretty awesome, we're both fans of the Dynasty Warriors series and we had never played a Warriors Orochi game. Over the course of the last couple of months we've been playing Samurai Warriors. When I saw that this game had DW, SW AND other misc. characters from other games like Ryu (Ninja Gaiden) I had to check it out.
At first I was a bit thrown off by there being no English voice acting but it had English titles and I can read so all is good.
The gameplay itself is great, one thing that has been annoying me about DW/SW lately is that I usually only find a few weapons that I enjoy using and the rest are "meh" which means out of the fairly low character count to choose from I only actually want to play a small percentage. However in Warriors Orochi 3 I find myself enjoying a lot of these characters because they all seem to have different move sets (so far anyway, having played ~18 different people now). Some of the characters (like Ryu) seemed to be a bit bland with their move sets at first but as they grow stronger it gets much more interesting and fun.
There are so many characters to choose from it's insane, some matches we unlock like 4 people and I enjoy checking them all out so it's always something new.
The graphics are great and overall I only have 2 bad things to say about this game...
1. Playing split screen sucks, at least for player 2 because the dialogue blocks a huge portion of your half of the screen, you can see through it but it's really annoying considering how much talking there is.
2. A lot of demon officers have the same skin (costume, sprite, whatever) but with slightly different names. Not that big of a deal since there are usually DW/SW/Other officers in the mix that you run into.
I recommend it to any Koei hack and slash lovers! A lot of enemies, a lot of characters, big maps, lots of weapons, fun gameplay, good times to be had!
