Unfortunately, Samurai Warriors 3 follows the same formula and format as all of KOEI's 'Warriors' games, including both the Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors franchises. The character roster boasts a healthy 35 warriors and a few new skills have been added, but the game bogs down in the series' repetitious play style. A frustratingly uncooperative camera doesn't help matters. It's not visually impressive -- even for a Wii game -- and the sound is only marginally better. And while there are several modes to play, there is very little to differentiate them. If you've played any previous Warriors games you can take a pass on this one without missing much.

Online interaction: Murasame Castle mode allows players to hook up with friends or to find others at the same stage in the story mode to play with in a cooperative setting. This requires a WiFi connection.There is no online chat.
