Sengoku BASARA 3! HERE WE GO!!
In both narrative and gameplay, a significant leap over its predecessors. All the characters feel unique and play very differently. The story mode has multiple paths, and multiple endings for each of the 16 playable characters. Although some of the stories get quite serious and emotional at times, the game still manages ...[read more...]
descriptionFeaturing unique playable characters, as well as supporting generals who will make it easier to command and lead armies, players will see the battle from the perspective of each military commander with the ultimate goal of re-writing history to rule all of 16th century Japan.

I don't lie when I say SB has changed my life for good. I have played this game in its English version and it was about time to give the Japanese dub a chance. The story in this game is particularly complex and dramatic and gosh, that's so well appreciated. Characters like Mitsunari and Motonari, Ieyasu, Yukimura... All of them. A whole new world of battles and desires of overcoming. Touching, incredibly sad moments and a burstling drama, all in one. One of my favourites this far.
Its plays like a Dynasty Warriors game but with additional content and more attacks. Devastating attacks that can wipe out entire armies with great visuals and ultra flashy attacks. The stories are quick and there is plenty of unlockable content in the game.
Sengoku Basara 3 is a good game. The graphics and the gameplay are cool. You can make great combos, the characters are cool but I prefer the characters in the Sengoku Musou series from Koei. This game is good to play with some friends and have some hours of fun.
This is my first time buying a game from the series and I love it!! I loved the storylines and also how you can choose your own story path depending on who you want to battle and such. There are so many choices for moves, allies, accessories, just the fact there are so many options in general! Very addicting and I really recommend it!
Clearly a large improvement over the previous games. While previous Basara titles were far more monotonous than Koei's Musou titles, Sengoku Basara 3 manages to deliver on the gameplay front.
Being able to use up 4 skills and one of 3 selectable techniques as well as the ability to chain the majority of these skills really makes for satisfying combat. While the enemy AI is still laughably pathetic, it won't really become a noticeable issue as it just makes you feel better about dishing out attacks and the unique characters and bosses will provide the real challenge.
The only real complaints to be had is the playable roster as many previously playable characters have been relegated to NPC status. Drama Emaki mode could also use variety as most characters do not have real endings beyond their red and blue routes.
That said, this is still the best crowd hack and slash title available at the moment.
