Samurai Warriors 5 Review

The story mode of Samurai Warriors 5 follows the story of Shioda; who is still in training after he is thrown into the front lines of the battle against the Empire of Fate and marries Momoi. Only one thing seems to keep Shioda going; and that is his strong desire to prove to himself and the audience that he is indeed a worthy warrior; deserving of being thrown in the front lines and taking on the enemies of Fate. Once he gains the trust of the locals of Gion Kobu and eventually joins forces with them; he finally has the opportunity to face off against his enemies in true battle and in order to do so he must defeat the sage of Gion; the legendary warrior Emmeryn.


One interesting twist in the story of Samurai Warriors 5 is that of it being an Xbox game. On Xbox; there are only certain areas of the map that can be conquered and that’s about it. However; if you’re up for a challenge; you can always take on the enemies of Shioda in his very own personal quarters; where you’ll have even more freedom and better weapons at your disposal. The maps are huge and filled with things to do; including boss battles with each of the five different characters (although some of them come extremely quickly; so you won’t want to spend too much time fighting them).


A huge part of Samurai Warriors 5 is its new system of collecting and upgrading your warriors; as well as its overall look and aesthetic. If you like the original version of Samurai Warriors; you will definitely like what the series has to offer. For starters; the main playable character; Shioda; is a fighter type with a sword and shield. Each of his attacks cause a bloody mess; as his sword deals out lots of damage; but the shields can also block some of his attacks.


Score & Verdict

In addition to the new fighter types; Samurai Warriors 5 has a whole load of new weapons; which you can use to take out your enemies. The new weapons include a giant club; a machete; an axe; ninja stars; a nunchuck; and even a laser sword; so you have plenty of options when it comes to dealing out pain to your opponents. Plus; each weapon has a special move and attribute that make it unique from the rest; so you will never run out of options when it comes to using them against your enemies. The special moves of the weapons can also be used in combination with each other; making them even more powerful.


All of this sounds great; but does it live up to the hype? Unfortunately; in spite of all the exciting content; Samurai Warriors 5 on Xbox One isn’t nearly as good as the original. Yes; there’s a lot more content on here; but the game is still not very challenging or fun to play. If you’re looking for an interactive; challenging game with a great story; then you should definitely look into the improved versions of Samurai Warriors 5 on the Xbox One; PlayStation 4; and PS3.
