Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada brings plenty of welcome elements to the formula and makes me excited for what Omega Force holds for us in the future once it fine tunes everything introduced in this game. While it brings plenty of shiny new features, it feels smaller in scale compared to the last mainline entry. But those new little things do add up to a lot.
Spirit of Sanada is a massive step in the right direction, and even though I own all of the former Samurai Warriors 4 games, I am happy to have this game added to my collection. The addition of new systems, a better story, new characters, and a nice sheen of polish makes this the best musou game to date. It does justice to the story of Yukimura and his family, and that is honestly the best compliment that I can give it.
After more than a decade and a half of these things, it would be understandable to grow sick of the formula over the countless iterations. Heck, one wonders what the rate of burn out is like for the creative minds at Omega Force. Yet, they always manage to tweak the formula, adding and subtracting elements each time, leading to interesting results. This philosophy can be seen in Samurai Warriors: Spirit of Sanada.
