Based on the Sengoku era of Japan, Samurai Warriors delves into the stories of several ambitious conquerors and warriors from the state, such as Takeda Shingen, Uesugi Kenshin, and the legendary Oda Nobunaga, with several others. This game still bares the same characteristics and game play from the other versions on the console formats, however with a twist. Each battle will bring you a grid-like board, which will allow you to choose your destination, to add some strategy elements. You can also receive actions to perform at this part of the battles, from setting up fire attacks on certain areas, to striking an enemy officer with a lightning bolt. Most of these actions will lead to you lowering the enemy's morale, which allows them to be killed easier.Still to the same, the main game play parts are exactly the same, not even worked upon, so it still bares all its original problems from the start. The stories on the other hand, are fairly unique and quirky, bringing more of lightness to the atmosphere of the battlefields, though it isn't really anything that special to warrant purchase of this game.
The game also offers you the chance to bring sub-officers, just like in Dynasty Warriors PSP, but slightly different. Instead of using a leadership stat, your character can only take so many officers into battle in general, until you level up more. You can end up with bringing in four legendary warriors by your side, and leaving a complete bombsite behind you as you tear through the battlefield.Gameplay - 5/10
Design - 4/10
Disappointing environments, and rather poor character designs, the looks and feel of this game just doesn't cut the cheese of what the PSP can harness.
Value - 7/10
This is where the game shines, you will have tons of things to do, with the numerous stories and many battles you will play through, that can keep any fan occupied for several days.
