Stale and repetitive as they are, I've always had a bit of a soft spot for these games. I've ignored the series since playing Warriors Orochi, but I'm getting in the mood for it again and happened to notice that there is now a Samurai Warriors 3 and something called Strikeforce.
Personally, I've been waiting for the series to include a decent survival mode, and given the type of game this is there's really no excuse to not have one by now. The best we've had in the last games I played is a progression through various floors of a castle, but what I'm really looking for is a mode with you standing in a field, alone, surrounded by as many enemies and officers that the game can handle. I haven't seen anything close to this since Dynasty Warriors 3 or 4, so I'd like to know if any of the recent games include something like that.
Also, if anyone still cares about this series, discuss it here.
