    There is quite frankly an overwhelming amount of content in Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate – while those upgrading from the base game may find it difficult to justify the cost outside of Infinity Mode, there’s no question that anybody tossing up between the base Orochi 4 and Ultimate at this point should absolutely go with the latter.

    In the world obsessed with Souls-likes, Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is a great reminder that action games can be fast, frantic and fun, too. Hyperactive J-rock paces the heated action that is presented in a steady frame-rate throughout despite all things happening on screen. Responsive and effortless controls keep up the flow beautifully and I, for one, didn’t get tired of the featured gameplay that is a whole lot more forthcoming and easier to grasp than in individual titles in Samurai and Dynasty Warriors series. As a separate and quite pricey upgrade, the Ultimate edition doesn’t feel all that essential if you own Warriors Orochi 4 already. However, as a bundle to the newcomers, it’s a great entry point to the extravagant and action-packed franchise.

    Warriors Orochi 4 is one of the best Warriors series games with more than 170 warriors, and the Ultimate version makes the gameplay even deeper. However, the updated content is very limited and a little bit expensive. For those gamers who already own Warriors Orochi 4, it doesn't seem worthy.

    Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is the best and most complete version of the latest Koei crossover series incarnation. Even if it keeps the original flaws, it tries to adjust the narrative to a more “human” level and utterly develops a game structure that is deep on its own way. It’s neither the best mosou nor the best Warriors Orochi, but the contents of this Ultimate Edition gave it the dignity to become a good starting point to approach the genre.

    This is one of those games where the final verdict is somewhat up for debate. On one hand this is the definitive version of the game and if one had to choose between this or the 2018 release this would be the recommended version hands down. For people who have already completed Warriors Orochi 4, the additional content may not be enough to justify the cost of admission. For hardcore fans like this reviewer the new content is worthwhile, but other people who felt satisfied with the conclusion of Warriors Orochi 4 and feel no need to return to that world won’t likely have their opinion swayed by the new content.

    Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate adds some interesting content to the game, with new story missions, characters and modes.

    In the end, Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is a mediocre Musou title. The action of wiping out giant hordes of enemies is exhilarating at first and the gameplay is rather polished but unfortunately, that's all there is to it and there's no feeling of escalation.

    This is what Warriors Orochi 4 should've been when the game launched.

    This is what Warriors Orochi 4 should've been when the game launched.

    The title offers an even better and deeper character customization than WO3 offered. Promotions are back, upgrade stones are back, character stats cap are lifted, skill trees are expanded, players can craft weapons, etc. The game simply just offers a lot of stuff to do and a lot of ways to upgrade your characters.

    The story has been expanded, new characters have been, added and an extra game mode similar to what WO3 makes a come back through the "infinity" mode.

    The game is extremely fun gameplay wise and yes while it will get repetitive is addictive enough to offer plenty of replayability due to the ridiculous amount of playable characters.

    People seem to score this game much worse than the vanilla version and truth be told I can't even exactly blame them for doing it but frankly speaking it's unfair.

    This game doesn't require a previous purchase of the vanilla version and the only reason it sucks is if you bought the vanilla version on release for 60 euros and now having to upgrade for another 40 but if you judge this game on its own there's no way this game is worse off than the vanilla version.

    Frankly speaking this is the most fun Warriors game up to date and if you are a fan of this franchise or of this type of game than by all means this game will not disappoint.
