I once regarded the Dynasty Warriors series and its many spinoffs as using the same old tired formula "where you press a button repeatedly to win." But after rediscovering my love for the beat-'em-up genre in the last decade, I also started getting into the Warriors games. Essentially, they're the evolution of those old 2D games where it was perfectly normal to eat whole cooked chickens from a trash can.

Playing more of the many Warriors games, I began to notice a slow change, with Samurai Warriors being the more experimental among its brethren. Now, Samurai Warriors keeps with that tradition of doing something different and gives us a small glimpse into the beginning of the evolution of the franchise.
