Samurai Warriors: Chronicles Playtest: Sengoku Fighting And Friendships

 

Anyone familiar with the Samurai Warriors series should have a general idea of how this game goes. You fight. Don't overthink it – your in-game companions don't.

I really like that Tecmo Koei made sure StreetPass and SpotPass compatibility were added, but unfortunately I’ve only passed one person who also was playing

Review: Samurai Warriors: Chronicles for 3DS

 

Getting right to it, I greatly enjoyed Samurai Warriors: Chronicles, but perhaps for the wrong reasons. The game has its problems, yes, and depending upon what you expect, they may be significant enough for you to bide your time with Face Raiders until...

Excellent graphics and character art, huge battles, great mix of action and strategy

Repetitive, fighting is mostly about button mashing, muddy interface, can’t skip level introductions, level grinding required

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles Nintendo 3DS Review

 

Like its console counterparts, Chronicles immerses you within epic 3-D battles, where you and your computer controlled buddies chop, stab and slice your way to victory. You literally run into a group of dudes and make them eat cold, hard steel, or if...

Slaughtering multiple dudes at once, switching characters on the fly, cool 3-D effects, sharp graphics, beautiful soundtrack, StreetPass support

Repetitive combat, no auto save, lengthy cut scenes

If you're a fan of button mashers (and just happen to own a Nintendo 3DS), consider Tecmo Koei's Samurai Warriors: Chronicles. This hack and slash adventure plays almost exactly like its predecessors, as you charge through feudal Japan wailing on...

Samurai Warriors Chronicles Review

 

Samurai Warriors Chronicles does a fine job of bringing the shallowness and tedium of the series to the 3DS.

Constant flow of objectives can make battles feel urgent and lively

Sluggish, tedious combat ; Dull storytelling ; Enemy soldiers look like generic clones

Everything here comes back to shallow, repetitive hack-and-slash action that quickly grows tedious. That combat defines the Samurai Warriors experience and prevents the game's more interesting elements from shining. Chronicles also supports the 3DS's...

Samurai Warriors Chronicles

 

Samurai Warriors debuts on 3DS with additions and limitations.

Manages to capture the essence of the Samurai Warriors games on the go ; Utilizes the features of the 3DS well, especially controls and networking ; 3D effect is one of the better uses in comparison to other launch titles

Smaller area size reduces the feeling of epic battles ; Combat can be repetitive and downright boring if unfamiliar with the series

Yeah, I guess axing it to get the game out for launch is a plausible explanation. It still feels very polished for a launch game and knowing Koei there will be more Musou games for the system later on, most likely we'll see online in those.

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles

 

Koei's hack-and-slash series set in Japan's Warring States era spins off into the handheld market for the first time in Samurai Warriors: Chronicles. Developed exclusively for the 3DS, Samurai Warriors: Chronicles features a revamped

Samurai Warriors: Chronicles

 

One original title which many people - and game stores, for that matter - have glossed over in the launch of Nintendo 3DS is Samurai Warriors: Chronicles from Tecmo Koei, spawned from the Dynasty Warriors series that has seen much popularity around the...

Pressing the same button over and over is fun, somehow

Great Game!

 

I have been a fan of the Dynasty Warriors games since the playstation version that was a one-on-one fighting game. Dynasty Warriors III was an amazing game and kept me entertained for hours on end. Now we have this game and it is another awesome...
