6.5

Delicious Button Mashing Goodness

The good:

- Satisfying hack-n'-slash gameplay the Warriors series is known for
- Quicker battles suited for portable, on the go gameplay
- Strategy elements are present
- Dozens of weapons and fighting styles to choose from
- Great character models and graphics for a Vita game
- Excellent CG cutscenes
- Stays true to the original story of the Three Kingdoms
- Frantic rock themes liven up the experience
- Create-a-character modes
- Tons of unlockables

The bad:

- Gimmicky mini-games are forced into campaign modes
- Repetitive nature of battles (that the series is known for)
- Not a lot of modes
- Conquest mode is unfair
- Ad-hoc play was focused on much more than infrastructure modes
- Characters with the same voice actor are present
- Clone characters are present
- Frame-rate issues every now and then
