Samurai Warriors Chronicles
There are a couple of interesting twists to this game that combine elements of the main series warriors games, Empires versions, and some new twists that could only be available on a touchscreen platform. Unlike the earlier versions of Samurai Warriors and even Dynasty Warriors released on the PSP, there is no more choosing points from a map and fighting small pockets of enemies returning to the map and repeating the process. Players can now roam the entire map freely just as the console versions of the games. The main characters of the game are nameless male and female warriors who progress through the feudal period of Japan unveiling the stories of the historical figures that the series is so noted for. After players complete levels, they can return and use the main characters from the Samurai Warriors 3 game in Nintendo Wii.
Overall, this game is well worth checking out for those who have a Nintendo 3DS. The same great enjoyment from the console platforms is replicated in this release of Samurai Warriors.
