    The ceiling on combat potential has been shattered here, and using the new tools at players’ disposal can allow them to more or less combo indefinitely to their hearts’ content. While the breezy, fast and simple style of Musou isn’t for everybody, fans will undoubtedly have a blast pushing this one to its breaking point, should one even exist. Warriors Orochi 4 is an easy highlight in a series that has consistently improved (Dynasty Warriors 9 being an exception) over the past few years.

    It's pure fun, and with Warriors Orochi 4, Koei Tecmo has done such a lovely job that I suspect I'll be coming back to it frequently for many years into the future.

    Warriors Orochi 4 is like a dream Musou game: matching up the two largest rosters from Omega Force, but like a dream, can at times be pointless or without direction.

    One of the best Japanese hack´n slash games out there. More than 170 different characters to choose from and the 2P co-op mode are two of its best features.

    Despite rocky presentation and a ho-hum story, Warriors Orochi 4 has been some of the dumbest fun I’ve had with a video game all year.

    Warriors Orochi 4 is a disappointingly cheap sequel. Stripped back and basic, it feels like a quick and easy apology aimed at fans who were left disgruntled by the dire Dynasty Warriors 9. There's still enjoyment to be found here, with the series' trademark action holding strong, but poor presentation and unstable performance drag the experience down. Koei Tecmo really needs to get its Warriors games back on track, but until that happens, you're better off nabbing the far superior Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate.

    This game is great. Is it the best? No. Is it lazy in some areas? Yes. Is it, most importantly, fun? Yes. I've been playing the WarriorsThis game is great. Is it the best? No. Is it lazy in some areas? Yes. Is it, most importantly, fun? Yes. I've been playing the Warriors Orochi games forever and played every Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors, even the dreaded 9. People will say this game does not have anywhere NEAR as much content as WO3U and I will AGREE to that. But, this is the base game and comparing it to base Warriors Orochi 3 is much more fair. In that sense, content is still lacking here with no camp and low budget interfaces, but if you can get past that, the gameplay this time around is so much better. The magic mechanics are great and add depth to the combat. I would only suggest to play on HARD because NORMAL is unbelievably easy. Honestly. Otherwise as a Koei fan, I love this game so far. Expand
