Samurai Warrior 3 :: Wii Game Review

This popular franchise game has seen better days. Even if you are a fan, Samurai Warrior 3 is most likely not the game you are looking for.

Samurai Warrior is a spin-off of the Dynasty Warrior series, made by the same developers. If you have ever play any game from the series, you'll know what to expect. Hundreds, if not thousands, of easily disposed of enemies, a handful of stronger enemies, a super power charge meter, and lots of repetition.


Hang Ups on Beat 'em Ups

There has been some great Beat 'em Up games recently, such as Scott Pilgrim. The problem with Samurai Warrior 3 is that it does not improve much over previous games and, due to the fact that the Wii is a weaker system, similar games on other consoles look and play better.


You take charge of a Japanese army, as usual. There are many missions with objectives that updates constantly while you are in battle. You must keep an eye on the mini-map throughout the game as you work your way through hordes of enemies with no AI. The only time the game becomes challenging is when you get lost or when you stop paying attention to your mission objectives.


The Daily Grind

Like in previous games, your characters can level up and you can also build up their stats and upgrade their weapons and armor. If you get far enough in the game, you can customize your character's appearance as well. There are lots of things to unlock and you can play through the game as different characters, but it will quickly get boring and repetitive.


There is a new mode, call Murasame Castle Mode that you can enjoy with friends online. This is an interesting mix of something like Zelda and Dynasty Warrior, allowing you to work through stages, worlds and bosses. It's a neat twist that gives fans something new to do.


If you like previous Warrior games, you will most likely have a good time with Samurai Warrior 3. However, it won't be enough to justify the price tag. You might be better off waiting for [kwlink 17730]Dynasty Warrior: Gundam[/kwlink] 3 or Dynasty Warrior Online.
