simple and entertaining
The way this game was reviewed is misleading. I've played the Samurai Warriors series since its beginning, and it's not really anything like the way it's described here. First off, the weapons aren't always a "samurai sword that's always razor-sharp and ready to inflict harm on villains". One of the characters fight with a wooden ball attatched to a toy hammer for goodness sakes. And as for educational value, this game has at least a minimal amount of it. The game's based off actual events in Japan's civil war era (although there's fiction added to make it entertaining). Also, there is ZERO blood throughout the entire game. Gameplay is simple. The only things you need are the square and triangle buttons and a joystick, along with an appreciation for mindless gameplay and you can play.
