Samurai Warriors 4: Empires is a game that lets you do a lot of… stuff. Yes, that sounds awkward & vague, but that’s because the game itself feels awkward and vague. The pretenses for your actions are poorly explained and the effect that game play systems have on everything else is poorly defined. I wouldn’t hotline it bad, unfun, or even badly designed, but it is overwhelming. It’s lượt thích you were given a huge sack of different toys and then were told you can play with all of them at once.


So finally you manage khổng lồ make it into battle & what vì chưng you do? You press a button until everything around you dies. Sure, the trò chơi says there are more options. You can alternate between weak & heavy attacks, AOE attacks, special buff commands, & your all powerful musou attack, but in reality everything around you simply falls to pieces if you spam the weak attack button. The only trouble you’ll ever have is when you are facing enemy generals, and even then the only strategy you have khổng lồ figure out is when there is an opening lớn mash weak attack.

The rest of the game mirrors the tone of the battle system, which is to lớn say it has a lot of options but you can ignore most of them. When I first started the game I was obsessed with enacting new policies & figuring out perfect magistrate combos, but soon I was fast forwarding through menus khổng lồ get to the next battle. Heck, even the options thực đơn has more options than are strictly necessary. There’s an option that determines whether or not female officers show up. Its oddest option I’ve ever seen. I ignored the sausage fest toggle and everything else except for the difficulty option.

The game’s weak tutorials only compound the problem. Mechanics are explained through splash screens that pop up every few seconds. They throw dumps of info at you all at once, neglect to mention specifics about what equipment does or what stats mean. You can go into the game’s manual to get a better explanation, but that involves sitting in front of your TV reading through each individual entry, và no one has time for that. We just want to start killing troops & building up combos.

The game is a bit too large for its own good. There are so many things to bởi that each individual decision barely matters. The kích hoạt is fun, though button mashy, & the politics are fun, though complicated, but I’m rarely in the mood for both at the same time. Granted, that’s kind of the MO of the Empires wing of the Warriors series, but previous entries in the series managed khổng lồ integrate all their systems better. I would have liked to lớn see Samurai Warriors 4: Empires have a little more focus. It would have made the difference between a fun but forgettable diversion và a genuinely solid game.

Bottom Line: Samurai Warriors 4: Empires is fun, but scattered. It’s a decent diversion but it’s complexity & lack of transparency will keep you from being hooked.

Recommendation: Fans of previous warriors titles will likely enjoy this one as well, but it’s a poor title to lớn act as an introduction to lớn the franchise.
