Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes
Quite a fun and refreshing game
After seeing the anime of Sengoku Basara a year or two ago I found out about this game and wanted to play it. Sadly I had no ps3 until recently, and this was one of the first games i got. So far I've logged a pretty good amount of time into it and have to say im impressed. While some might compare this to Dynasty Warrirors or Samurai warriors, it is similer but not the same. As a fan of both I can say this does many things better. This game trade's the quantity of warriors for quality, as each character you can choose has a unique play style and moves. Also something i enjoyed in this game that DW or SW didn't have was command officers. If you take down a bases officer, a explosion happens, hitting all those around you, racking up points. All in all this is a great game, exspecally for fans of the Warriors series.
As good as the anime
This is for dynasty warriors fans but better than any dynasty warriors game ever. Not saying anythings wrong with dynasty warriors this is just better hands down.
great buy masamune date is a beast, if you like dynasty or samurai warriors or ninety-nine nights you will love sengoku basara check out the anime to
This is a high addictive game. You'll play it for hours and hours and never grow bored of it.
Play this along with Samurai Warriors ( I highly recommend Samurai Warriors, just not enough room for me too!), and you'll get a lot of the jokes; this game is not a rip off of Samurai Warriors, but, rather, a parody Koei's equally awesome series.
The only problem is, Capcom is not releasing anymore BASARA games in the State, so take advantage of this awesome game!
hack and slash is sweet
i'm a fan of japanese entertainment. anime, manga, movies, and games just keeps on getting better as always. ben playing this game everyday that it is so fun to hacking away at my opponents and slashing down. this game really suits my interests.
not the best game but it is addictive
if you just want to chill and bash through countless enemies while playing with your favorite character then this is the game for you. if you expect this to be an rpg or you dont like dynasty warriors, you wont like this.
Your desire to slash, shoot, and brawl= fulfilled.
I am a fan of Japanese entertainment, so the Sengoku Series easily appeals to me in is rad character graphics, its quick and addicting gameplay, especially in co-op, and the diversity between the characters. The series itself in both game and anime, contains something we gamers and fans all need, a perfect arena to unleash combos. For the Otaku and fans, this game is a hands down buy, especially because it is $20 on Amazon now. Good music, lovable characters if you follow the series and and fun way to chain combos. For the gamer who is not into Japanese anime or things of the sort, here are three reasons the game pays off. (1) The game is what the koei series games should have been. It holds to have you control one of your many unstoppable characters of the series. The task of plowing through hundreds of enemies holds satisfaction, in that you will have no trouble getting into it. On top of that the rapid rate at which you can chain combos makes at times for very exhilarating experiences. Call in a friend, and co-op through a whole battlefield, which is very fun (2) The different characters all of COMPLETELY unique styles of fighting. It ranges from two rapid spears, to clawing six swords, to using one blade like Vergil on Crack, one who uses all guns, one who is a heavy broadsword fighter, one who fights with his fists, Shotgun and Dao sword, Controlling spirits of Darkness; it is the diversity of fighting styles that made this game the top selling PS3 game in Japan. (3) Gameplay itself is intense. I would have put this game down like any other Dynasty or Samurai Warriors game. The point in this game is to brawl through. But Sengoku Basara loves it's combos and rewards you for increasing your combos by adding in more money to buy moves, weapons and outfits. The different ways one utilizes the square, triangle, R1, R2 L1,L2 and joystick button combos is enough to show that once you decide to experiment, you can create quite the party. On top of that each character has HERO TIME, a Matrix moment to move at high speeds and deal some Megadeth. And of course the Circle button, the BASARA attack is a very amusing, very radical and absolutely amazing attack that each individual charater has and is basically a performance of the character dishing out their 110%. Basar attacks are very cool and fun to use. And they are not just four attacks like in Samurai or Dynasty Warriors. Mitsunari Ishisda has a BASARA attack where he starts slashing so fast while running he disappears, or the gun user Saika Tossing into the air, a huge bundle of guns shooting their trigger to create a gun volley all they while herself using two machine guns and at the end a rocket launcher. Characters also possess reverence, which is like theDevil Trigger or Limit Break. Reverence changes your character in terms of attacks, speed , power. Examples include Maeda Keiji, getting drunk and fighting, or Ishida Mitsunari, becoming possessed by hatred and becoming dark with Insane speed . FINALLY, in this game's gameplay, there will always be times when you will fight other characters from the SENGOKU BASARA series, each with their own styles and BASARA attacks. Getting into a clash is a fun button masher. All in all one would not buy this game for $40. But at $30 or $20, you would find that this is a fun hack n' slash, for the single and party player. I own it because I am a fan of the series, but to you who are weary about it, know that this is a game that knows it is not perfect. But it is fun. Like it or Not, the game is fun. and I hope this review proved helpful. This is Uziroth009. Enjoy the spree.
Good but can be better
This is a realy cool game but u realy cant unlock any good ppl to play with and the ppl u do get are realy lame if u watch the amine show you will hate the selection of charters they have to play with but all in all its a realy cool game
