Pros = good adaptation, 2 player co-op, easy trophies, difficult setting
Cons = repetitive, play stages over and over, fellow Ai is stupid
Worth = buy this for fans of the manga and warrior games
Like all koei warrior games, this game suffers from being repetitive, but that doesn't make them terrible games. What gets me the most in this game is that you have to play the same stages over and over just as a different character. Then you look at your friendly Ai and notice they are hardly being active in combat. In Warriors Orochi 3 your friendly AI was consistently participating in battle.
There have been some complaints that the setting is stupid and stays the same. Well... considering this is suppose to be faithful to the manga. All your going to get is a post-apocalypse world. Just as long as they make the stages different (which they do) then there shouldn't be a problem.
It is a little slower paced and has lesser enemies to deal with than a regular koei warrior game, but has more action-adventure elements to it. Like find the 7 keystones, moves boxes to jump onto higher platforms, get to this destination with obstacles in your way, and etc... There is a leveling system of course and a skill chart which surprised me. Controls can get a little clunky depending on what character you have. Kenshiro definitely starts out that way until you level up his movesets. Which brings me to another cool feature. You can equip each character with 4 signature moves. That is on top of your characters 3 pre-installed and permanent hyper signature moves.
A list of characters you can play after you have unlock them through playing or dlc: Raoh, Toki, Jagi, Rei, Shin, Mamiya, Souther, Heart, Outlaw.
If you simply play through the game then you can easily get all of its trophies and a plat. Consider that statement to be your trophy guide and enjoy the game =)
