Well HELLO EVERYBODY and welcome to a Lightning fast review of... Samurai Warriors Chronicles for the Nintendo 3DS! I bought this game 2 days after the official day of release in Europe(25 March) and I played it for about 18 hours and cleared it! Wahoo! I am so happy with it, its my best 3DS game at the moment. Picture of the European cover: Developer information: Name: TECMO KOEI Europe LTD Producer: W-Omega Force Other known titles: Dynasty Warriors(all systems) and Monster Racers(GREAT GAME FOR NDS) Game information: name: Samurai Warriors Chronicles Genre: Beat ´m up Date of release: 25 February in Japan(I am right?) 25 March Europe and 27 March for the United States Style of game: Japanese Reviewer: Lightning(Alex), for Sc00p magazine. This should not be reproduced. Start: I did go to my local GameMania(game store) and I did try it. To much story line! I did irritate myself on the Japanese talking guys since I could not understand em and I was forced to read the touch screen(which I did not do) and I ended up waiting some minutes. So after longggg time waiting I played it. And it felt GREAT! So its worth the €50,-. Gameplay: The controls are worked out well; you use a combination of L, R, X and Y for main things, for the Mossou attack(wrong spelled ) you will need to fill your Spirit and Red gauge. This attack is strong and looks great too but press A when you want to do this.! Further you can change it all in control settings! It is not hard to play on easy most times BUT in the last part you will get some heavy missions! AND you can customize your character and weapons! You can chose between male and female at the start too. Still the weapon customization is a bit hard to understand. Further is the whole game spoken in Japanese(English subtitles of course) but still the voices fit great in the personalities! Gameplay buy IGN; they are attacking a fortress.

I cannot tell much but you really can see depth in all of the levels and it makes it much better to play. And the characters; the characters are from real Japanese named clans, the characters look great styled overall and the enemy´s are not like James Bond games all the same face. xD the all look the same but you cannot see their face! Nobunga Oda our guy we will join! Sounds and Music: No offense, the music is Japanese styled and sounds great on the 3DS both with earphones and the original 3DS speakers. Futher the enemy make a standard WAAAAHHHH sound when you defeat them nothing special but not screwed up like in some other games. Long lasting: The fields look great and variated, the replay value is high as well.(played the first level 4 times ) it took me 18 hours to complete the game. I am not at 100% yet! Soo it can take some longer too! Story: Hard to fellow at the begin, end and middle. Still I did fellow it. Its hard to remember those names. But after some times you know who who is! But the story is overall nice and it ends like all story´s; srt of good. End of story line Warning: Spoilers inside! The main character you need to protect(not the guy with the BIGGA gun) commits suicide; your main character stays alive Final score: Gameplay:16/20 Plays great! Difficult Weapon upgrade system. Graphical:18/20 BEAUTIFUL! no regrets. S&M:15/20 Great Japanese styled music, standard WAAH sounds by dead for enemy. Long Lasting:20/20 18 hours is enough. Story:14/20+ Hard to understand but overall good! Final score: 83/100 80 POINTS! WHAM GREAT! If you like beat ´m up games BUT IT. Other scores by other sites: Nintendo Life: 5/10 Gamespot: 4.5/10 IGN: 5/10 Yeah FUCK YOU critics! Its a great game; you do not know what your talking about! I AM PRETTY SURE ITS A GREAT AND DECENT GAME. edit: oops; typo!
