Warriors Orochi 2 gameplay

Warriors Orochi 2 gameplay

KOEI released a sequel in the Warriors Orochi series last week, Warriors Orochi 2 on Playstation 2 and Xbox 360. Games like these are released several times a year, where they mix characters from different series they've created. You can in this one change between characters while on the field by pressing a button, but other than that it's similar to the other games. Poor graphics, embarrassing AI, and a lot of button pressing. Inside you'll find a couple of gameplay segments from the game.

Games like this need to die or heavily upgraded ( in graphics, game-play, story ) and not released several times a year. Then there might be consideration in actually buying them. I remember how I enjoyed Dinasty Warios, but about to part 4, then the yellow turban rebellion really got on my nerve.

I picked this game up a week ago and so far I like it a lot. It is my first Warriors game. I am going to pick up Samurai Warriors 2 next and buy the add-on from XBL marketplace. I like that all 90+ characters all feel different.

New fanservice character! I know they keep on making these, and I wouldn't mind them going for a new facelift, but they always seem like good rentals.

    Moonwalker That free weekend convinced me to buy it. With the right team I enjoy it a great deal. If people go lone wolf I might as well quit. I do see this happening quite a bit. (15 Hours ago)
