Critic Reviews for Touken Ranbu Warriors

Slightly above average or simply inoffensive. Fans of the genre should enjoy them a bit, but a fair few will be left unfulfilled.

I was hoping for something unique in the pantheon of Koei Tecmo's long-lived franchise, but it's a step backwards. Fans of the Touken Ranbu franchise may get a kick out of seeing their beloved swords in 3D, but for the rest of the world you have to hope that it isn't indicative of where Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is heading.

It’s hard to imagine Touken Ranbu Warriors having strong appeal to anyone that’s not a die-hard Musou fan itching for a new Warriors-like. Those that played the original Touken Ranbu will surely get a kick out of seeing those characters come to life in a new way, but there isn’t much to write home about beyond that novelty. Touken Ranbu Warriors feels like just enough to maybe hold you over until the next mainline Dynasty Warriorsentry comes around.

An elegant but histrionic musou, far too simplistic and bland to appeal to those who are not fans of the original card game.

Touken Ranbu Warriors has some great new ideas for the genre, but its lack of any challenge really lets it down.

Touken Ranbu Warriors doesn’t add much to the Musou but its accessible gameplay may make this a good entry point for newcomers.

Touken Ranbu Warriors has a combat system that would virtually allow you to complete all missions using, in addition to the directional stick, a single button. However, you would lose the soul of the entire musou and its myriad of attacks one more lethal and spectacular than the other, with enormously charismatic characters to watch kidnapped as they dance breaking lives.

Touken Ranbu Warriors mixes the classic one vs. 1,000 hack-and-slash Warriors gameplay with the beautiful boys of the Touken Ranbu franchise. The use of investigations helps break the monotony of the Warriors-style gameplay a bit and the time-traveling element adds a twist to the history-based narrative often used in games set in Japan’s warring states period. Although it doesn’t exactly introduce groundbreaking changes to the formula, it’s a solid take on Warriors gameplay for fans of the classic hack-and-slash games and the Touken Ranbu franchise.
