Samurai Warriors 2 images

Samurai Warriors 2 images

Koei has finally officially released the images we wrote about last week, but this thime they're in full 720p. No enemy number will ever explain such graphics, and the series well known punch line - "Press X alot and your enemies will fall" - don't say much good stuff for the gameplay.

It's still a better game than ninety nine nights. More characters, much more interesting setting(Japan) and lots of things to collect/unlock.

It does look better than the 360 Dynasty Warriors but that aint saying much :(

Character models are pretty good, doesn't look to bad to me.

Thing is, this game *is* Dynasty Warriors, just with a different theme and characters. Koei better step up and start innovating, graphics wise and gameplay wise, because for the last 3-5 years they've been rehashing the same games over and over.

Well it seems to work for them .. (if it ain't broke, don't fix it)

i've never seen a generation-shift where so many devs seem to have problems to deliver

It won't work on Xbox 360. They don't have the Japanese X360 überbase for it, and they don't have any western market either (compared to NNN).

They shouldn't be allowed to market games that are this shitty looking.

Yeah, looks like the character models have received a pretty nice polygonal count upgrade, but that's about it outside the resolution.

Damn I want Ninty Nine Nights

That game looks like a mans ass. Horrible to look at. Damn, these japanese developers don't combine gameplay and graphics very well. No wonder why most japanese games have great gameplay; they don't focus on graphics at all meaning more time focusing on gameplay. Go figure...

Well im glad they think like that, beats the shallow western games we have to put up with.

Well it's a port of a PS2 game what are you expecting ?

A crappy port, like Final Fantasy XI (even though the gameplay is great).

More crap from KOEI, they shouldnt even be allowed to make games.
Commented on 2006-07-09 21:01:33
Um, why do they release these screenshots???
Commented on 2006-07-09 21:26:04
Looking at this I REALLY appreciate ninety nine nights a lot more :)

OT:

I have played Ninety Nine Nights and I thought it was an awesome game! There's no online but I loved the game. It isn't perfect though but I thought it was very next gen.

Don't believe me? Check out my gamertag: wuffy ^_~

Btw, I also have Every Party and Enchant Arms all in English for the XBOX 360! Microsoft is certainly giving us Asians a lot of love!
