The game is not complete without a tomboy princess.

The Dynasty Warriors series is a love-it or hate-it kind of game. I personally like the idea of controlling a kick-butt warrior into the midst of battle against hordes of enemies while a prominent kill counter is tracking the number of enemy deaths by my hands. It just never gets old. Samurai Warriors is an alternate version of the game that is set in medieval Japan instead of your usual Chinese cast and events that were adapted from "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". I actually prefer the new ninja/samurai selections because they are cooler and more mystical than those found in the Dynasty Warriors games. New to the series is the first implementation of role playing game inspired character customization options that use experience points to manage attributes and assign new skills to your characters.
