To properly grease up the game writers, game company Koei sent out a nice hardcover book for Sengoku Musou 2, which will come to the United States as Samurai Warriors 2. Now it's hardly fitting preparation to kill hundreds of saps in one fell sweep by, er, reading, but Koei took care of that -- the book is all in Japanese, and poses no threat for someone who can't even read/speak English.
It sure does have some purty pictures, too.
And the game itself is a pretty fun beat-'em-up. Mission accomplished, Koei.
Ancient Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu says, "Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near."
