i have samurai warriors 2 xtreme legends and warriors orochi 2 and i have to say i like SW2XL better than WO2.
1-the special skills really add depth to each character. i’ll give one character the spring skill, while nother will get evade, while another…bombardment.
2-the evade button.
i can’t tell you how this button makes the game so much more complex than warriors orochi.
i was disappointed with WO2 when i discovered that there’s no evade button. so…if you get hit you just get manmgled by the mob coz there’s no freaking way to get out of the juggle. also, sometimes a general will block everything and just wait till your combo is over only to teken combo your ass right into red health.
with evade, after you fail to get a hit with your combo, you just roll the ell out before the crowd’s mayhem on your ass begins.
it really sux coz WO2 seemed like it was gonna be 1000x better than SW2. duel mode, 90+ playable characters, 3 character teams being able to switch in & out mid combo.
i thought this game was gonna blow SW2 outta the water. but they never implemented the evade button featured in the SW series.
and THAT was their biggest design flaw.
the lack of being able to ninja gaiden roll evade really diminishes the skill/fun level and turns WO2 into something way too button mashy for my taste.
