Assume the role of legendary Japanese Samurai during a time of civil unrest, launching into chaotic battles against huge swarms of enemies. Skilled in the arts of combat, the Samurai must protect their lord's interest, and doing so requires careful planning and strategy. With tales of revenge, political intrigue and romance, Samurai Warriors 3 asks you to play your part in the unification of Japan and to defend your honor in the process

From the Manufacturer

Samurai Warriors 3 is a "Hack and Slash" action game set in a quasi historical medieval Japanese setting. The third game in the Samurai Warriors franchise, the game features 35 playable male and female warriors, each with their own backstory, special weapon and signature attack. Weapons and abilities can be magnified on the battlefield with the variety of charged combination attacks, and can be upgraded throughout the game. Additional features include multiple game modes--some supporting co-op play--dialog in either English or Japanese, unique character creation abilities and support for the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controller combination, as well as the Classic Controller, the Classic Controller Pro or the Nintendo GameCube controller.

Fight with Honor in Mediaeval Japan

In Samurai Warriors 3 players can choose from more than 35 playable warriors, many based on actual figures from Japanese history. Each stage is filled with fast-paced action as players are challenged to complete a series of objectives by fighting through hundreds of enemies on foot or on horseback. Each warrior has different skills and weapons, and each one offers a different perspective on the overall story of the unification of Japan. Each also has a different motive for combat. Some fight to unite Japan, while others seek to protect the honor of their clan and loved ones.

Game Modes

Packed with multiple play modes, Samurai Warriors 3 offers a diverse gaming experience designed to satisfy every player. Modes include:

  • Story Mode - In Story Mode players watch a different tale unfold for nearly each of the game's 35 warriors. Within these you can participate in dramatic set battles alone or with a friend in cooperative play, and as you gain victory you'll be able to select the next story that you wish to try.
  • Free Mode - In Free Mode players can select any game scenario found within Story Mode at large, and explore it with any warrior found in the game.
  • Murasame Castle Mode - In the Murasame Castle Mode, players help a lost Samurai fight his way out of a haunted castle. This mode is based on The Mysterious Murasame Castle, a game originally designed by Nintendo with input from developer Shigeru Miyamoto and released in Japan on the Famicom Disk System. In this mode, two players can battle cooperatively across long distances via broadband Internet access and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
  • Historical Mode - This mode has players completing a story following the events of the Sengoku (Warring States) period in Japan using custom characters created in Dojo Mode.
  • Dojo Mode - In this mode players can unlock new upgradable characters, as well as create up to 20 new warriors who can be played in Free Mode, Historical Mode or Story Mode.

Attacks

Each of the game's 35 characters has its own special weapon and devastating move, but in addition to this, because players will face hordes of enemies in a variety of situations, Samurai Warriors 3 features a variety of attacks that allow characters to unleash varying levels of damage. The most basic of these are Normal Attacks. These simple yet powerful strokes and thrusts are easily merged into rapid fire combos that make standard close combat easy to pick up. The game also features a variety of more advanced gauge-reliant attacks. These include the Spirit Charge, the devastating combos of the slow-motion based Musou Attack and the unparalleled power of the Ultimate Musou Attacks.

The game is slower and clunkier on Wii with significantly less enemies than Samurai Warriors 2 on the Xbox 360. It's obvious they've gotten bored of the story because they don't even try to tell it anymore. The mini missions within missions are cool but the way missions are presented it no longer feels like a battle it feels like a series of time trials that you just run quickly by the worthless soldiers to accomplish. Create a warrior is back which is the highlight of this game. They seriously need to actually try to do something innovative with these games or stop making the trash they mass produce.

Large roster of characters, great new perks Oct. 26 2010
By Slayereyals - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
Pros:
Large roster w/ 35+ characters, several new ones ->Most are unlockable by purchasing w/ rice as currency earned after each stage, bonus given for completing respective story modes
CAW returns so you can customize a player w/ own moveset
New spirit gauge that allows for continuous combos, full gauge+musou=special musou moves
Murasame castle mode w/ online support
Standard Split-screen support for 2 characters
Maps now have objectives and strategies in battle for rewards

Cons:
CAW is limited and you can't max out a created character's stats
Online limited only to Murasame castle, cannot play in free mode or story mode so limited maps access
Not all characters get a unique story mode (Though most do, all new ones do)
"Demons" of Murasame castle are just soldiers w/ different colors and auras

Overall great game, lots of replayability w/ large roster and each character retaining a unique moveset. Murasame mode is a nice addition, but stages are generally very short initially. Some equips are exclusively unlocked in Murasame mode so it's worth playing. All characters equip own weapons but armor, bracers, shoes, and mounts are shared throughout and are upgradable through gems earned in combat from objectives or slaying officers, no more buying upgrades.

Another Great Game... With Questionable Customization Aug. 9 2011
By Kristina Rosano - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
I greatly enjoyed this game. The English-Japanese voice over option was quite nice. (Partially because I am learning Japanese and partially because one of my favorite Seiyuu, Nobuyuki Hiyama, was the voice of Masamune Date. ''''''''').

Another wonderful thing about this game was that it was available for the Wii. Very few good games are on the Wii nowadays. If I want to play Dynasty Warriors I have to dig out the PS2. And forget about the new games coming out on the Xbox, since I don't have one of those. I am also sore that Warriors Orochi isn't on the Wii... >.<

The controls are well set up, even for the Wii-mote and nun-chuck. The characters are vivid and the graphics are the best I have seen in a long time.

However, there are a few concerns...

First off, this specific title ruined the pre-established relationship between No- and Nobunaga. According to the first game on the PS2, it was a far more sadistic relationship then what is portrayed in this title. I am not sure whether this is because the first game was historically incorrect and the change was for accuracy, or if the change was simply made to lower the ESRB rating through censorship, but Nintendo has a nasty history of the latter. The past two titles in the series also displayed far more PDA in their cut scenes. It does beg the question, does it not?

The main flaw of this game, however, lies not in its main collection of playable characters, but in its custom characters.

The customization system in Samurai Warriors 3 is seriously restrictive. The customization system allows for the color alteration of pre-designed sets for the "Headgear", which is basically the hair and any hats; the "Face"; the "Torso", including the arms; and the "Legs". The male sets include maybe 12 faces, all but 2 of which are rather old. The 10 headgear sets are all helmets except for one ponytail. The 5 Torso sets are bulky for the most part. And the 5 leg sets are designed only to match one of the Torso sets. This makes for a majority of combinations which result in old men in big metal or furry armor. Graceful young male custom characters are difficult to create. The female sets only include 3 of each kind, with the exception of headgear (which numbers at about 6). This again restricts variety severely.

Another downfall for the custom characters is that they cannot max out their stats.

However, these flaws are quite common and should be expected in any custom character system, as no one seems to care much about that feature in the long run except players. And players do not make the game...

All in all, a great game with a few pet peeves of mine. I greatly enjoy this game and hope to god that its sequel and the other members of its series appear on the Wii too.

Samurai Warriors for the wii Jan. 29 2013
By ted - Published on Amazon.com

The game play is a little slower than in previous Samurai Warrior games but the pretty graphics make up for that. If you are a fan of the first two games or any of the Dynasty Warrior games then this should be a slum dunk for you. You can use the nunchuck, classic, or gamecube controller systems to play this game. Hours of fun game play and tons of cool characters make this game nice buy. All in all it gets a 9 out of 10.

Pretty fun for fans of the series May 31 2012
By John Burt III - Published on Amazon.com
Fun:   
This game is pretty fun, if you are already a fan of the series. It has that classic feel of going in and wrecking a bunch of dudes, something I've been missing since I played Dynasty Warriors 3 on the PS2. Although the game tends to expect you to move really fast; sometimes it feels like it does expect you to be in two places at once. But I can forgive that.
