The above are all things I like more than Warriors Orochi on the PS2. Why have I not told you about the game itself? Well, we already reviewed Warriors Orochi for the 360, and it got an average score because it is an average game. The PS2 version is exactly the same game from the tediously long running series – albeit a bit less pretty – so go read that review instead.
Been there, done that. I need a good kick up the backside.
