Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate
Top Critic Average
Reaching the climax in entertainment has been one of the main goals of the development team, and the team has reached this goal very well in this title. If you are a fan of the series, you will easily get along with the weaknesses of this game. Even if you are new to the series, do not worry about the negative points of the game and enjoy its action

If you’re a fan and you haven’t already bought this, it is a worthwhile purchase. If you are more casually interested in Warriors stuff, maybe wait for a sale….but still get it. It won’t disappoint you with many more hours of mook-smooshing fun.
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.
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.
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.
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.
So overall, while it may not have the same expansive storyline of Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate, Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is a solid experience which adds some neat quality of life features to the base title that came out over a year ago. Adding in just a few new characters was neat, but it’s the ability to change magics and the smoothness of the experience that really takes the show making the Ultimate add-on a worthy pick up to the original title.
If you’re a hardcore fan who wants to do every last possible mission, level up every character and hasn’t already had their fill with the base game then it’s definetly worth the asking price for the Ultimate upgrade.
Despite the high price tag, Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate brings a good amount of content with great additions to a game that was already pretty good by itself, being even more recommended for newcomers.

At this point, you are most likely either in or out when it comes to the series. Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate is a fun Warriors game, but won't change your mind on the genre.
