these games give the 360 a bad reputation in japan, i wish this game also released on ps3 so not only the 360 gets this

Why does this company continue to port CRAPPY ps2 games on 360.Its like this is being done on purpose.No one bought the last game,why make another.KOEI make a real game already.

KOEI should just make games only for ps2 ONLY not even for ps3.Their talent stopped at ps2.

Well, I'm probably completely and utterly alone in secretly enjoying these games, but a small correction that's rather significant:

This is the Empires edition. Samurai Warriors 2 has been out for quite some time, but that's rather rubbish in comparison. Empires add strategic elements and some light managment mechanics to your army/land, and it's just a much bigger and much meatier version of what's originally a pretty shallow game. (Samurai Warriors 2)

So the correct title for this is Samurai Warriors 2: Empires.

No, my siblings and I enjoy them too. However, I do admit that I'm quite tired of them making the same game over and over and over again with nary an improvement. I think that the series could do so well with an engine overhaul. At the very least, loosen up the camera a bit.
Commented on 2007-01-09 22:09:19
Yeah it's such a shame, because they're sooo addictive once you get into them. Oddly, hypnotizingly so.

They do make some slight improvements for the 360 versions, with more characters on screen and HD resolution obviously, but the fog in co-op is just insulting. But you know, at reduced price and with the achievements on top it's sort of fair. Especially the Empires version of DW5 gives you lots and lots to do, and the general creation thingy is quite satisfying aswell.

I had hopes that Bladestorm would look properly ps3/360-y, but I guess it's up to the real DW6 on PS3 then.

I think I'm going to freeze myself in a tube until KOEI disappears. 2014, here I come!

They're both very crappy games regardless of the title.
Commented on 2007-01-10 02:52:51
The thing is they dont add or change anything in these types of games. They hit their peak with DW 4, and then its just been the same crap with different game titles.

'Koei once again proves how well they can use a next-gen console with these awesome images of Samurai Warriors 2.' I hope this was intention of sarcasm. I don't see anything awesome about these images. Ninty Nine Nights had better visuals than this game, and it's almost a year old now.

IMO Blim hates Koei. His news on all the Koei games(except Fatal Inertia?) are all filled with sarcasm. But, it's reasonable-Koei sucks.

About the game


What's up?
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @alimokrane: I would say that the Soul series is "challenging" than hard. Like Grift said, difficulty modes can be poorly designed and give unfair advantages to the AI IMO. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A lot of them do.. but sometimes difficulty modes are poorly designed too. But that's nothing new. People have been phoning in hard and easy modes for decades. (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Why can't the AAA games have hard modes like those games, that's what's annoying... (2 Hours ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Nioh and Neir (not yet). They are on my list. I played Dark Souls 1, I played and that's hard for sure. But those games are very few.... we need more! (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Also there are plenty of non-FPS multiplayer games. But maybe if you're looking for a challenge you should be more open to stepping outside your comfort zone. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you played Nioh, Dark Souls 3, and Nier Automata? (2 Hours ago)
