The Ps2 video game Warriors Orochi opens up with an amazing animation sequence. The demon god Orochi, with his minions, essentially rips the Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors out of there respective homelands through a portal in order to begin a massive war to the death. The families of Shu, Wei, and Wu, fight each other along with the Samurai Warriors. Additional characters pop up, namely Orochi and Da Jing, who have greats such as Lu Bu and Keiji Maeida on their side. Warriors Orochi also has an engaging co-op play for two players throughout the entire game. Each player chooses three characters, which they can easily switch between the entire game.
What is great about Ps2’s Warriors Orochi video game is that you can play the video game for a long, long time without getting bored. There are literally dozens of characters to earn. Pitting evil greats like Cao Cao and Nobunaga against each other adds to even more fun gameplay. As the game progresses, the story line becomes more convoluted, as players switch loyalties constantly in order to defeat this Orochi. You can choose the video game difficulty, even choosing the Chaos mode, which I have yet to beat. Gameplay follows the specific families through their respective paring up or fighting against Orochi and his formidable army. Weapons are also customizable, a fun gameplay aspect.
Da Jing is probably the most interesting character in the game, despite the strength of her master, Orochi. The strategist for Orochi’s army, she constantly appears as a maligned trickster with an annoying child like attitude. She also has a tendency to impersonate other characters in the game, so do not be surprised if you find that your video game mission objective has disappeared in a cloud of smoke. As characters go, she is not that difficult to beat for the most part.
The final battle takes place at Koshi Castle, created specifically for the Orochi Warriors video game. Orochi is extremely difficult to defeat. Players often have to be at extremely high skill levels to defeat the final level. A few hits from Orochi, and your character is dead. I suggest keeping at least one save for the final battle, so you can pop back in without having to get to the final battle again.
Ps2’s Warriors Orochi is must-have video game buy for those who love hack and slash type games with a good story line, amazing graphics and music, and tons of crazy warriors to earn. The new Warriors Orochi 2 came out in October. This video game series has yet to disappoint.
