The Good: Lots of characters on screen, Musou attacks look cool
The Bad: Bad everything else
I thought that maybe Orochi would be alright on the PSP, but boy was I wrong. I’ve never played any of the Dynasty Warrior games but I know what they are about and like. Orochi has poor graphics, a sloppy button mashing combat system, lame voice acting, lame story. Even though you can switch between 3 different characters it really doesn’t make much of a difference. You can chain together Musou attacks, but that’s about it. One thing I REALLY hate is you can’t switch when an enemy is hitting you.
There are hundreds on screen and you’re getting hit constantly. Another main issue is you don’t even have to kill the enemies to finish the level. You can just run right past them to the exit. I just got rid of this game (good thing I only *cough* downloaded it *cough*) after the first level. You can unlock lots of characters and there are a few stories to play, but why bother?!
