It's VERY similar to Dynasty Warriors. Just, more on the Japanese side. Gameplay, sound, design, and production are almost a complete twin of DW Series. Now, that said, it doesn't make this game "bad" . The DW Series is a series that has changed little over time, that being said, DW (dynasty warriors ) is a NOSTALGIC game. What I mean is, If you liked playing DW and played the later games, it has a sense of nostalgia. Samurai Warriors recollects this feeling and puts a good little twist to it, by adding different variants such as playing a bit in the Japanese history. I would not recommend this to a friend because, the player-base ( this is strictly from my view ) for these types of game is small. However, if you or your friend is open minded, it's a very good game for a very good price.
No: I don’t recommend this product
