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.

About the game


What's up?

    Tinks during the 64 era Nintendo at least had Rare in their prime, but it was the start of real painful gaps in content. (3 Hours ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks if you skipped the 64, Gamecube and Wii you may not feel their software issues the same as others. From what they've shown so far they've done little to correct their previous console issues. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I don't think Nintendo can or will fit the mold he expects them to though. They never have, really. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Jim always presents a solid argument. I think Nintendo has more wiggle room with this thing than people think if the market responds poorly to it. A portable SKU for example. (4 Hours ago)
