More DetailsLess Details
The Skill System The game's new Skill System replaces the point-based system used in the original game. In Samurai Warriors 2 new moves and skills are now acquired by increasing in level, learning techniques from an enemy officer, or by purchasing them from the game's Shop.
Aside from character-specific skills, Skills are divided into the categories of Ability, Growth, Battle, and Special. Unique skills are obtained through overall character growth. Your character's level will increase based on EXP points earned. The highest attainable level is level 50. Your Life meter, Musou gauge, Attack, and Defense all increase according to your level.
NEW! Special Stance and Attack Omega Force has reworked the Samurai Warriors control scheme to include new attacks. Each character has two secret fighting techniques called Special attacks. Holding the R1 button (on PlayStation 2) or RB button (on Xbox 360™) places your character into a Special Stance. Pressing the Normal attack or Charge attack buttons will execute a Special attack. These attacks become more powerful as character level increases.
NEW! Triple Musou Gauge For the first time in any “Warriors” game, you'll earn up to three separate Musou gauges as your character develops. When one gauge becomes full, you can unleash a single Musou attack. Two or more filled Musou gauges will increase the power of your Musou attack.
Linked Charge Attacks Linked Charge attacks are performed by pressing different combinations of the Normal and Charge Attack buttons. Your character will gain new attacktechniques as he or she grows. Check your character's Move List to see newly acquired techniques and the proper button combinations.
Castle Warfare and Field Battles Unlike the original, where castle battles occurred as separate stages, Samurai Warriors 2 incorporates castle warfare into field battles. Capturing those castles can influence your army's morale. If you enter a castle, seek out the staircases that lead to the top floor.
Five Game Modes There are 5 modes of play including the main “Story” mode and a “Free” mode which lets you play any cleared stages. Inside the “Vault” you can view all acquired weapons, items, guards, steeds, and in-game movies.
In “Survival” you'll fight your way through an endless castle to see how many floors you can clear. The gold and experience points you accumulate in “Survival” will carry over into the game's other modes.
NEW! Party Game “Sugoroku” “Sugoroku” is a new board game for up to 4 players. The goal of Sugoroku is to move about the board and acquire three flags. When you return to your home base with the flags, you will be rewarded with gold and a promotion. If you land on a square that is not owned you can purchase that square. If you land on a square that is owned, you will have to pay a toll. After paying a toll you can fight for ownership of the square. The first player to earn the specified amount of gold wins.

Great Koei GameBought this as I’ve played previously DW & SW titles, happy I got this. I’ve actualy enjoyed all of the koei games I’ve played so far, good action with a touch of history. Don’t expect this to follow the history to a T, but still a good game. Especially awesome if you’ve got someone to play it with.

My favorite game.Samurai Warriors 2 is my favorite game for the 360. It has a grasp of the history it parodies and the fantasy warfare is well done.The cutscees re beautiful and the battles lively.The characters are eaisly relatable and youy could play for hours. It has ALOT of content to keep you occupied. The only annoying part is the loop of sound bites each character has through every battle. If it is a problem, you can turn off the volume and read the text.

a great new storyline for the samuraisif you know me im the one reviewing the dynasty warriors games. anyway, i have had this game 1 year after the xbox 360 came out and i haven't been playing it as often because it never caught my attention. however the stories of al the warriors are awesome and intriuging. there are also quets you can take instead of playing a story you can go into a castle and fight to level up even faster rather than playing the story with zero experience.

If you like Dynasty Warriors, you'll like this.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.
