Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes (Wii)

 

Capcom's Sengoku Basara series doesn't have quite the same level of name recognition for Western audiences as Koei's Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors games, but if you've spent any time with Koei's games, Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes will...

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes

 

Who knew famous battles that actually took place in ancient Japan were so psychedelic?

Visually attractive setting and characters ; Gloriously bizarre story, characters, and combat ; Mutiplayer mode lets you share the strangeness with others

Repetitive gameplay ; Lack of combat strategy

Dunno, I liked N3II (at least the bit I played so far which was only a couple of levels).

There's a fine line between striving for realism and taking a different view for stylistic purposes. For example the games of the popular Samurai Warriors or Dynsasty Warriors series have made it their goal to aim for a degree of authentic detail. ...

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes Review

 

Shallow, mindless hack-and-slash action makes this a crushingly tedious slog through an anachronistic version of 16th-century Japan.

Attacks look stylish and powerful

Mindless, repetitive hack-and-slash action ; Idiotic enemy AI ; Absence of checkpoints makes death an infuriating setback ; Cookie-cutter enemy appearance and behavior

Both the Wii version and the PlayStation 3 version support offline, split-screen two-player cooperative play. In this mode, you can revive your companion if he or she falls in battle, which makes getting past some of the tougher bosses easier, but it...

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes- Wii

 

There is only one theme in Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes: It more closely resembles Devil May Cry than Dynasty Warriors on the current-gen consoles. The results are awesome, pretty and worthy of attention from those with even the vaguest interest in...

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes- Wii

 

Samurai Heroes has an enjoyably anachronistic take on the Sengoku era of Japanese history, but there's nothing enjoyable about trudging through its battlefields and laying waste to hordes of mindless enemies. This is one trip back in time that's best...

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes- Wii

 

It's not that I'm saying that everybody needs to play Basara because it's such an awesome beat-em-up omigod -- if the relative drudgery of the Warriors games' breed of beat-em-up didn't do anything for you, this might not either. Rather, if you have...

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes- Wii

 

There aren't all that many good things to say about Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes. Sure, it's better looking and slightly more entertaining to play than any of the similar games that have come out in recent years, but it's still painfully formulaic...

Sengoku BASARA: Samurai Heroes – Wii ReviewPosted on November 11, 2010 | No CommentsOne look at this Dynasty Warriors style Samurai title is enough to prove that the distinctive style of Samurai Heroes isn't for everyone.

The overall feeling you are left with after playing Sengoku BASARA Samurai Heroes is that of a missed opportunity. Certain aspects of the game are genuinely enjoyable, such as the mission structure and experimenting with the different weapons on offer....
