Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate
Top Critic Average
It’s an easy sell for brand new players, but I think only the most hardcore of Warriors fans will feel like the price-tag of the DLC update is worth it for Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate.
Be warned, Musou fans: if you try Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate your time will be sucked into an endless pit: more characters, a new ending, and more modes, weapons, magic and challenges, but with all the known problems: it's very similar to WO4 and it tends to be a little bit repetitive soon.

For newcomers, Warriors Orochi 4 now gets a recommendation. For existing fans, you'll have to weigh up whether the additions are enough to pull you back in.
Warriors Orochi 4 was a solid, if uninspired, Musou game and this 'Ultimate' edition fleshes things out with some new characters and modes, significantly beefs up the story and tweaks the central gameplay here and there. However, the additions that have been made sometimes feel like the least amount of effort that was possible.
In the end, Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate corrects the issue a number of fans had with the original, in one of the worst ways possible.
Warriors Orochi IV Ultimate is so big and messy that I would never recommend it as an introduction to Mosou-style gaming. If, however, you beat Fire Emblem Warriors or Hyrule Warriors and thought, "Wait…that can't be it," you will not draw the same conclusion here. Not by a longshot.
Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate takes a great musou game and expands it.
Loud, colourful, and chaotic. Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is a more than worthy addition to the long-running, entertaining franchise.
Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is the best and most complete version of the latest Koei crossover series incarnation.

Players who had previously purchased the base game could upgrade to the Ultimate edition through DLC for a price. Newcomers, on the other hand, will now only be available to purchase the game as Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate. For those getting into the series, the Ultimate edition is easily the definitive way to experience the game. To those who already owned the base game however, your money is best spent elsewhere.
