Warriors Orochi 3
This is not a fighter
Pros = huge roster, difficulty setting, keeps action going
Cons = slow on the feet
Worth = it is worth a buy for people who like these type of games, too bad it is digital only for PS3
One thing people should keep in mind when playing/reviewing this game is that it is NOT a fighter or action adventure! This is a hack n' slash game dealing with "hordes" of enemies. So don't expect puzzles or very technical fighting, but non stop action. Which Orochi Warriors 3 does a good job of keeping the action flowing. The only thing that I don't like is that horses are very slow compared to the previous title and your not exactly fast on your feet either. Especially when you take in to consideration the amount of ground you most cover.
So you can play as 132 characters and they added a new attack category called Wonder. Which will inflict heavy damage if you land a charge attack on a enemy that has been knocked back. It also allows you to hit the X button after landing a attack for a follow up attack that will break the opponents guard. If the game gets too easy or hard for you just adjust the difficult setting.
Another added feature is that you can improve bonds between characters which will change camp interactions and can increase frequency of support attacks. The online feature and replay/length of this game is decent. You can play along with another person, create your own battlefields, and uploaded them for other people to play them.
For those who care, this installment is a bit more story driven than the past 2 and does explain them. You have the option of using 3d if you have a 3d tv.
Best Orochi game yet!
I have not played a Warriors Orochi game since the 1st one and I gotta say, much has improved since the first one! This game will offer many hours of gameplay and alot of time to spend increasing friendship. It has plenty more stages compared to the 1st game and has many characters that I do not know most of em, which I am still far from unlocking all of the characters. There are times when a character dies and you have to go back in time to save them and use them as a character after you beat three stages. Some characters you get from playing the stage like Ryu from Ninja Gaiden and Ayane from Dead or Alive. The only bad thing about this ps3 is that it takes so long to download. It took me countless hours to download while it took my friend 6 hours. I think it depends on how fast your ps3 downloads a game. Orochi 3 also takes 11 GB of memory which is very much and some bites for a save file. This game also has online which you can join, invite and recruit people online and yes, I have played a game online with a friend of mine which you can get a trophy for beating a stage with an online friend. Overall the graphics of the cutscenes and gameplay has much improved and definitely reccomend this game to those who are hardcore Warriors gamers!
Only if your a fan of the series
This game is pretty good but i like the dynasty warriors series better. But on the plus side you get to play as Ryu ( Ninja Gaiden ) in this one. If your a fan of the whole hack n slash genre then you'll enjoy.
