This game will literally take you hundreds of hours to get bored. There are dozens of characters to play as, and though the game plays more or less the same regardless, it's fun to play as everyone since there are subtle differences to their combat techniques and speed and attack range. The character models are incredibly detailed for the main characters, but the backgrounds and battlegrounds are par for this series, being undetailed and very basic. Each battle will have you facing off against over 1,000 enemies, not including a dozen or more main characters and various mission objectives that will have you running all over the entirety of the massive battlefields. If you've never played a Warriors game before, this is a good entry to start with due to the sheer amount of content and most up to date graphics and gameplay. If you never loved the franchise before, this game won't change your mind since it's just more of the same. While I love the Warriors franchise and enjoy each entry, I can't help but feel like I spent more time playing the games when each individual character had their own unique story. I get that it would be incredibly hard to continue that trend with the 75+ characters this game has, but you won't feel as compelled to play as every character anymore since their stories are grouped now and the character you play as doesn't alter whatever story they are a part of. The game is still just as long as ever, but feels lighter on content as a result of the vastly decreased number of stories. Definitely worth a purchase. The game was ported very well and has never crashed on me or glitched out after well over 100 hours of gameplay time.
If you like Samurai Warriors, you know what to expect. This game is very well-done, although they could lay off on the anime aesthetic a bit. Combat is better than every and I always preferred the more sandbox approach to Samurai Warriors than the linear approach to Dynasty Warriors. We also have multiplayer for the first time, although match making doesn't really work. I just wish this game had all the base content from SW4, as the content offered seems somewhat small and limited.
Another warriors game but now its on pc, getting over the issues with this game is easy, the textures and engine effects are from the ps3 while character models are from the ps4 so its an odd mix of great and horrid textures. Its your standard issue thing with SW with their combo system, there are many new types of combos you can do and the honeycomb skill system for each character which helps a lot with replayability. Its not as large as DW8XLCE but its a step in the correct direction, id highly suggest getting this but only during a sale. Also note that the dlc in this game is extremely over priced and a very bare bones compared to dynasty warriors.
SAMURAI WARRIORS 4-II is a Musou game. Musou are a type of action games where you fight during huge battles against thousands of enemies. Your character is a powerful general and can perform some flashy attacks. These games are not suited for everyone since it can be repetitive to play. However if you're not bothered by that, SAMURAI WARRIORS 4-II is an excellent Musou game with hours of gameplay and a lot of replay value (There are a whole of characters to unlock and play) SAMURAI WARRIORS 4-II is a very good port of the PS4 game too. The graphics are clean and the framerate is stable. Sure it's not an impressive game to see (except for the thousands of soldiers displayed on screen) but the visual experience is smooth and pleasing. It's recommended to use a controller to play.
