Review: Gintama Rumble – Stick to Senran Kagura, Tamsoft

  • Zero

    ‘The combo system in this game is very poor, and there’s barely any combos you can make.” Strike 1
    “It would have been much better if the game had checkpoints like other Musou games.” Strike 2
    “the game still feels really repetitive and tedious.” Strike 3

    You’d think they’d upgrade the combo system, map designs and features with each warriors game but each release fluctuates in quality/features. I wanted the all Star warriors game but taking out co-op put me off (I can only really enjoy these games with my brother otherwise it’s far too boring/repetitive).

    I appreciate the review! 👍

    • To make things clear, this isn’t by Koei Tecmo but by Tamsoft.

      Still, Tamsoft has done x10000000 better with Senran Kagura, so it makes you question what is going on in their heads when they released this monstrosity.

        Meh, Estival Versus is pretty boring. .

    What a sad read, I had hopes for this game, shame to hear it fell flat. I’ll still get it though, even if it’s lackluster it’s still Gintama.

      Go for it. It’s really a nice game.

    ¿3? Nah… This games deserve much better. I’ve it and I’m having a blast of fun with it. Maybe 7 at least. I’m a big musou fan, this feels kinda average but it’s not bad. Mindless fun may I say. Graphics are Ok, smooth gameplay with no issues encountered.

    Famitsu gave this game this score: Gintama Rumble (PS4, PS Vita) – 8/9/8/8 [33/40]

    So and the end, if you like this kind of game.. you’ll be right at home.

    • Hey there, Jose. Thanks for the comment.

      I love Musou games too. I love Gundam Musou 3, One Piece Pirate Warriors 3, and the like. I even LOVE Senran Kangura, but this definitely felt like a very awful awful game. But if you’re enjoying it then much props to you, man. I didn’t want this game to be bad but unfortunately for me it was.

      You can make really good combos in Senran Kagura if you know what you are doing. This is very very limited. Missions get super repetitive and it’s too long for no reason.

    “Do yourself a favor and don’t the game”

    Yeah, I don’t the game! 😀
    Anyway, it’s probably my favourite non Koei Musou games, sooooo…

    • Damn big oversight. Thank you!

    Well all things considered tamsoft didn’t make Senran Kagura games but a small group of developers within Marvelous partnered with Tamsoft. Basically the fault is Tamsoft can do alot of leg work if given proper direction but Bandai Namco really does tend to make cash grab games with anime liscenses.
