      Fantastic game which is a must play for fans and casual gamers

      The warriors on PS2 is a third person adventure game based on the iconic 70's film of the same name. It was created by Rockstar, creator of the grand Theft Auto series and stays pretty close to it roots within the film. The game is rated 18 for a reason and is full of brutal violence and swearing but it is over the top and not realistic. The game is about the backstory to the film for the most part. The film is about a gang wrongly accused of murdering a rival gang leader and then having to run from every gang in New York to get back to their home turf.

      The story takes place before the movie for most of the game and the development team have done a fantastic job of creating a back story which neatly ties in with the film while remaining faithful to the characters and setting. It's an enjoyable experience by those who know the film, but with the inclusion of the back story is doesn't alienate any newcomers either. The sound is great on this game and the original film intro is faithfully recreated almost shot for shot.

      In terms of gameplay the game really comes into its own. The fighting is intuitive and brutal. You team up with the warriors using various commands and you control only one warrior per level. However you do get a chance to play as almost all of them. You can pick up anything on the ground to use as weapons and can even perform double team combos. This makes fight fun and you have up to 15 opponents' on the screen. This makes for fast paced fight where you have to use brain as well as brawn. Your character will show damage when he gets beaten up which is a nice touch. There is also a two player co-op mode which is a nice touch as well a lot of mini-games which is enough to keep you enthralled for hours.

      The only issue is that some of the missions can become repetitive but this is only a rare occurrence and only happen at the start of the game. After that it becomes varied and really good fun to play.

      The Warriors CAN dig it!

      Off the back of three increasingly gigantic hits from their Grand Theft Auto series, Rockstar's next port of call was something of a surprise - a video-game adaptation of cult 1979 gangland film The Warriors. Fortunately, it turns out to be ideal fodder for open-world style gaming and barring some uncharacteristically rough presentation, ticks all the right boxes.

      As in the film, the game opens with the assassination of the messianic preacher Cyrus at a mass-meeting of around a thousand representatives from New York's various gangs, for which Coney Island's Warriors are later wrongly accused of perpetrating. Around three quarters of the game are played out prior to this moment however, as through a series of missions we learn of the trials and tribulations of the Warriors and how their warlord Cleon helped build their stature in the run up to the meeting.

      The first uncommonly good trait for a film tie-in (if you can call it a tie-in twenty-six years after the event) is that in recreating the story and atmosphere of the film, it never feels handcuffed by its source material. Indeed, in many instances it actually expands on the films narrative, such as in the handful of 'Flashback' missions that give a credible back story as to how the gang came about and how several of their key members were recruited. Fans will also find a good deal to like about the audio side of the game; the music's ominous undercurrent fits the tone ideally and it also helps that many of the original cast members have returned to voice their characters, meaning that, foul-mouthed as it often is, the dialogue is of a good standard.

      Though its environments are markedly less sizable, The Warriors showcases a number of innovations that weren't present in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Living the life of a gang member involves such tasks as spraying graffiti tags, where you use the left analogue to trace along a variety of designs, whilst stealing car radios requires the quick twisting of the stick to remove a series of screws. Elsewhere, you can mug people for a few dollars and pick locks with a mixture of visual prompts and timing skills. All of these mini-challenges occur in real-time, meaning due to the hectic nature of the game, you'll often be under pressure to perform them quickly and efficiently. They work well because each is instantly accessible and yet no two are alike, meaning the tasks retain a degree of variety even though they are all frequently called upon. Ostensibly though, The Warriors is a brawler at heart, and perhaps Rockstar's biggest step is in its revised combat system.

      Scraps in The Warriors involve the usual gaggle of punch/kick combos, as well as throws that can send your opponents clattering into their comrades or one of the many destructible elements in the scenery. Weapons are of course in ample supply around the streets and the use of bottles, bricks, bats and planks is actively encouraged thanks to additional damage and style points they accumulate. The fights can be a bit manic and the controls a touch wayward at times, but there's plenty of fun to be had, especially given that for the most part you're accompanied by allies who'll help out when things get heated. Whilst specific targeting can be a touch hairy and your character has an annoying tendency to flap at nothing at times, the system is definitely a positive step for Rockstar.

      The streets look suitably grimy in the night time settings, but next to the GTA games, there's a certain ugliness to The Warriors. Whilst it's understandable that things look a little muted, the environments are nevertheless unattractive, with buildings looking particularly low-res and the FMV's appearing barely any better than the in-game cut-scenes. Whilst characters move and fight with acceptable levels of animation, there's very little in the way of facial detail and additional variables such as hats, clothing and hair tend to look rather underwhelming as well.

      But in fairness, what Rockstar sacrificed in terms of the games aesthetics, they more than made up for in the level of depth that has gone in to reimagining the world of The Warriors. For starters, between all the shop owners, gang members, civilians, tramps and police officers there are more than three hundred and fifty individual characters - a staggering number when you consider that each and every one of them can at some stage be unlocked and played as in a gang of your own devising.

      This gang can then be put to good use in the Rumble mode, which contains a variety of cool fighting-game style modes to tackle, and there's also the much-vaunted co-op where that allows you to play through the story with a friend. It works well, though not quite well enough to be a selling point. The constant switching between a split-screen and a full-screen viewpoint depending on players proximity to each other can be quite jarring. In certain sections, most notably a rooftop chase that involves timing jumps, the vertical split-screen makes it very difficult to see where you are going. Still, it's a good laugh and certain levels that are tricky on your own can be polished off easier with a bit of teamwork.

      Besides all of this, there's still plenty to see and do. For starters you can take part in a series of San Andreas-style gym workouts that require some vigorous button-bashing to increase your attributes, whilst you can also explore Warriors territory on Coney Island by doing some missions for the locals, rewarding you at various times with more health and enhanced strength, and these distractions make for a nice break from the bigger levels.

      Consequently there's a healthy amount of replay value once you've finished the story, as each level challenges you to polish off all graffiti spray tags and secondary missions, as well as a target score, generally achieved by causing prolonged bouts of mayhem. Even if the fighting takes precedent for the most part, there are plenty of other memorable moments, like trashing a rival gang's art-gallery, tailing a junkie so as to find a rival gangs hideout and, when the Warriors are on the run in the later stages, some stealth sections.

      The stealth sections are among the rare moments where the game feels a little outside of its comfort zone. That's not to say they're terrible; they actually work pretty smoothly on a technical level, it's just for once simplicity hurts the game. Provided you are in an area of shadow, enemies will never see you, and this leads to some bizarrely comic moments. If you're spotted and then run to a shaded area, half a dozen foes will walk right to the edge of it, apparently staring at you right in the face but not registering your presence. The strong fighting credentials mean that edging around on tip-toes eventually feels unwarranted, like you're overcomplicating matters.

      Something's never change and Rockstar's renowned wit is still as prominent as ever, with some gems the hobos come out with providing some laugh-out-loud moments. It features a fictional drug called 'Flash' that's used as a health pick-me-up and is bought from shady dealers, who are just as prone to nick your money and do a runner as give you your contraband. Rather brilliantly, completing The Warriors rewards the player with a surprisingly sturdy scrolling beat 'em up called 'Armies of the Night', a full-length arcade game that not only accurately and amusingly parodies the likes of Double Dragon and Final Fight, it easily surpasses them in length.

      Despite the developer's excellent track record in the sandbox field, The Warriors still has to go down as a very pleasant surprise. It isn't the prettiest member of Rockstar's glittering PS2 stable, but they certainly didn't rest on their laurels, tabling and executing a number of good new ideas, with the new combat in particular proving a big plus. It's long, well-made and faithful to the film upon which it is based, meaning that in terms of a game adaptation, it's realistically all fans of the movie could ever have wished for.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Good beat em up.

        The Warriors is a beat em up developed by Rockstar games for the Playstation 2.

        The story follows a gang called the Warriors, the game follows the plot of the move where all the gangs in New York meet up to discuss how to take over the city. Cyrus who is giving a speech gets shot and the Warriors are blamed for it and must escape! The game is told in flashbacks which fills you in on some of the details of the characters and is generally very interesting.

        The game is a beat em up style affair you control one of the Warriors, it doesn't matter who you are playing as each Warrior plays the same. You can bust out a good variety of combos using the light and heavy attack buttons as well as some jumps and throws for good measure, the game also lets you pick up some brutal weapons like bricks and it really looks like it hurts when you cave the side of someones face in with your brick!

        To spice things up the game lets you take a break with some minigames, you can break into cars and steal the radios, graffiti your tag on the walls, stealing from shops, just regular gang type business, each of the minigames fits in with the style of the Warriors and is satisfying to do.

        The game also throws in co-op play which you can use to replay any one of the games story missions with a friend on hand to help you, the camera can get a little strange in co op mode for some reason which can be annoying however.

        Graphically the game is reasonable, nothing looks great but everything is passable it looks like Rockstar could be re using the Grand Theft Auto graphics engine.

        The Warriors is a good beat em up and you should have some fun with its brutal gang warfare style of gameplay.

          Disadvantages

          A short and sweet game

          This is a game derived from the 1979 film 'The warriors', the game captures the atmosphere and effect of the film very well, despite many of the events and scenarios being different.

          The game is very brutal and bloody, it is to an extent that i recall no other game that has such a level of graphic violence, (so best not to buy the kids it!) the game in itself has a wide range of moves that can be performed, may it be kicking someone to the ground, or smashing a concrete block in someones face (I told you it was violent!)

          The missions are genereally enjoyable, however sometimes can appear to be impossible and frustrating, all the missions rotate around trying to get the warriors (the gang you play as) to have a high street cred.

          Outside of the single player mode, the game also has a multiplayer option which can be very enjoyable with friends, i mean whats more fun than smashing your friend through a wall? And also has a cooperative mode available.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A very good game.

          The Warriors video game is the rarest of all gaming beasts: a video game adaption of a motion picture, that not only manages to remain faithful to the film but in its execution, manages to best it!

          The Warriors (both the film and game) revolve around a 70's New York, where a eclectic mix of exotic and outlandish street gangs have been called together by the charismatic Cyrus, a Vietnam War veteran and also the leader of the biggest gang in the city. His proposal for a city wide alliance between all warring factions is brutally cut short when he is gunned down in cold blood, and the Warriors find themselves being blamed for his death in the resulting chaos. Trapped several miles behind enemy lines, they must fight their way back home, and for their very survival.

          The game itself whilst remaining faithful to the film also helps flesh out the movie by means of a back story. In it, entirely original material is created in order to explain the reasons for why the various Warrior members joined, as well as the various skirmishes they encounter with the other gangs.

          For those of you who think that the Warriors is nothing more than your stereotypical, button bashing beat me up, think again. Whilst fighting and hand to hand brawling is the bread and butter of the game it is bulked out by considerably large maps and strategic game play. With breakable objects, all of which can be used as weapons in order to acquire a tactical advantage over the enemy and stealth features, the game rewards ingenuity with sheer brutality.

          The game features an authentic soundtrack including several of the hit songs from the film, as well as a few extras including the simply electrifying "Knockin' on Wood" by Amii Stewart, a disco classic. The game features scenes of violence and also strong cursing so parents: you are well warned!

            A best selling game based on a cult seventies movie!!!

            A few years ago a friend of mine reccommended I watch a film showing on BBC1 late one saturday night. Although it was an old film dating back to 1979, it was one I had neither heard of nor seen before. That film was THE WARRIORS and was one of the best films I had ever seen. With it's tale of a New York gang falsely accused of destroying peace talks between all the other many gangs that roam the city and forced to travel the streets back to their own turf pursued by very angry and irate gang members hungry for their blood, the film was non-stop action from start to finish and I was amazed I had never seen it until now....

            Imagine then my excitement when I heard it was being made into a game!!! Although game to film conversions and vice versa are notoriously bad as a rule, nonetheless I still found myself going about the house calling "Warriors...warriors....come out to plaaaaaayyyyyy" much to my wife's chagrin. (If you have seen the film, this quote capitulates exactly what made the film soo great!!)

            Thankfully the game totally lived up to my expectations and the rest, as they say, is history....

            THE WARRIORS game is set a year before the actual fim so rather than just being a chase through the streets of New York which would've gotten very boring very quickly, instead we get an idea of why anyone would want to frame the gang in the first place and how they manage to rub the other New York bloods up the wrong way. Giving us some background beyond what the movie shows us is an ingenious idea and really breathes new life into the film as well as giving anyone not familiar with the original plenty of introduction to later events. The graphics are stylishly done and the gangs animated to perfection and this is only complemented with the authentic soundtrack!!!

            When you are not doing story missions, you and your fellow gang brothers hang out at your errrr....hangout!!! Here you can work out to gain extra strength, agility etc and do bonus missons around your turf that unlock origin missons that tell the story of how the main gang members all got together to form The Warriors. The main story missons don't just involve fighting either; as you play, you are expected to tag enemy gang territory, smash up shops etc to earn protection money and have to complete set tasks in order to move onto the next stage. The actual part of the game that follows the movie then is relatively short-lived but thats okay because by the time you get there, you have about had your fill anyway. If you play the game on hard and complete it, then an extra feature is the ability to play as one of the other gangs....I won't spoil who for those who like to discover these things for themselves but its probably the best, freakiest gang in the game!!!

            Is this value for money? yes!! Does it have any replay value? Most certainly... not only is THE WARRIORS a cracking, classic seventies movie, it's now also one of the best PS2 games available to play. But then what did you expect from the Midas of videogames- Rockstar games? The people behind GTA, MANHUNT and RED DEAD REVOLVER, these guys know EXACTLY what they are doing and deliver ALMOST every time!! (Smugglers run anyone...? anyone?...oh yeah there it is in the bargain basement lol)

            A truly excellent game

            I must say this has to be perhaps the best game i have played on. I have had no hesitation on replaying this game over and over again. There are a fair selection of levels, some made up from before where the film starts, showing how the warriors formed. There is also a wide variety of bonus 'Flashback missions'' , rumble mode allowing crazy mini games such as wheelchair racing and the ability to train your warriors in between missions. You can free roam around 'Coney', the home of the warriors, muggins, stealing and fighting as you go. You can also use a variety of jawbreaking moves, and you can use weapons such as knives. The buttons used can become repetivitve, but it doesn't matter at all, as this is a diverse game of fighting, tagging, following a superbly written plot line. If i had to recommend just one game, i would well and truly recommend 'The warriors''

              Disadvantages

              This is a wonderful game with plenty of action to keep you indulged.

              Back in 1989 there was a movie called The Warriors, basically it was gang movie where different gangs would kill each other in order to run the neighbourhood. The movie is actually really good although watching it now does kind of make me feel old!

              The game of the warriors is actually very like the movie, It's essentially a beat em up and can feel a bit like a 3D version of Streets of Rage, and that isn't a bad thing at all.

              The graphics for me are really cool ,each gang is decked out in it's own colours and looks really sharp and it really captures that dark seedy underground of New York Streets as you battle through your street fighting.

              The gameplay is good, I enjoyed it as it feels great, it's pretty nasty too, some good weapon work here and you'll not get bored of kicking and battering your way through each gang.

              One little fetish I have with games that I love is destroyable environments, I just love them. And theres no end of this in the The Warriors.

              The sound is cool as they actually have some of the actors from the movie to do the voiceovers which is a really nice touch along with the original soundtrack from the game.

              With extras and unlock able games and modes there's certainly plenty to be gained from playing through the game and as far as beat em ups go I'd say this ranks right up there.

              The co-op can be a little annoying at times and its not a masterpiece by any means but it is a very enjoyable game that should appeal to big audience in the PS2 community. Thumbs up from me.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A really good fighting game with a superb story mode and fantastic graphics.

              Introduction:
              I recieved this game as a birthday gift in 2005, It is based on Walter Hill's 1979 cult movie The Warriors. The game takes place in the buzz of new york city, with loads of different gangs and they're all after The Warriors (A street gang wrongly accused of killing a rival gang leader). The Warriors must make their way from one end of New York, to their turf on the other side.

              Story Mode:
              The story mode on this game is fantastic, making your way from one side of New York to your turf on the other side trying not to get killed by the 60,000 angry gang members! The weapons you can pick up are fantastic; Planks of wood with nails in, Glass Bottles, Bricks, Concrete slabs, Knives, Baseball Bats, Machetes, Brass Knuckles, Steel Toe Capped Boots, Molotov Cocktails, Meat Cleavers and more! The Warriors also has a unique Rage ability, alowing you to do huge fight moves to cause amazing damage to your enemies. There are amazing attacks anyway that include diving at your enemie, Punching, Kicking, grappling them and even throwing them at a wall or through a window!
              You have your gang with you, and with War Chief mode you can give them commands, so if your beating a guy to death and the police come, you tell your gang to split up and everybody goes and hides in shadow so that they dont get arrested! and even if they do get arrested you can alsways go and beat the police to death and uncuff your buddies!
              In the game you can buy a thing called Flash from dealers on the street. Flash lets you regain your health, but how do you buy it? You mug people on the street, or rob car stereos! or even break into jewelry stores!
              You can also buy spray paint to leave your tag all over the city.

              Graphics:
              The graphics in this game are amazing, really clear, and great lighting and shadow effects! Another awesome thing is that if you punch someone, you get blood on your hand, and if they punch you you get blood all over your face, and if your getting beaten up, it affects how your guy fights! and everything you hit (like buildings and cars) looks damaged, which really is great!

              Sound:
              I couldn't say the soundtrack is great on this game, because i have no idea where it comes from, but to be honest, i was too busy playing the game to notice! When the guys talk it's comprehensible, and when you walk, everywhere sounds different under your feet. When you fight all the grunts and 'ooffs' the fighters make sounds really cool, which is a great feature to a fighting game! There is another really cool feature about the sound aswell, if you go into your gang room or 'safe house' the radio will be on, and it's always saying something about the last fight you participated in!

              Requirements:
              1 or 2 player
              Memory Card (For PS2) 95Kb minimum
              Analog Control Compatible: analog sticks only
              Vibration Function Compatible

              Other:
              Age Rating: 18+ contains strong bloody violence
              Developer: Rockstar Games
              Developer Site: www.rockstargames.com
              Game Site: www.rockstargames.com/thewarriors
              Release Date: October 17th 2005


              Conclusion:
              A really good fighting game with a superb story mode and fantastic graphics.

                Disadvantages

                Great PS2 game.

                The Warriors for the PS2 os an 18+ beat-em up game which focuses on a fictious gang known as the Warriors in New York City set in the 1970's. Based upon the cult classic by director Walter Hill, the game both emulates and differs from the film, in that although the game does indeed feature the events that unfold in the film, there is a great deal more offered.

                The film begins with a meeting for all of the soldiers of the night which total at 70,000 and there is to be a general truce between all the gangs. Cyrus, the man proposing this truce is shot, and the Warriors are blamed, thereafter they have to fight their way through 20 square miles to get back to Coney island.

                The game however does not start here with the events unfolding with the meeting and subseqeunt fight for survival left for later towards the end of the game, and there is a series of missions and levels which are included.

                How does the gameplay? Well, at first glance I thought it would be a basic beat-em up, with little else to offer. Sure, fighting is a key and integral part of the game, but there is so much variety offered, be it terms of the different fighting moves employed by the various different Warriors, the weapons you use....to the different gangs you will rumble with. I can assure you, from personal experience, gang fighting is a bloody, terrifying and nasty affair.

                One level will see you defending your turf from your arch-enemies, the Destroyers. The next, your attack on them and subsequent defeat of them. Another level sees you fleeing for your life through the rooftops of Soho. The variety offered is great.

                The controls are very easy to master and are as follows:

                Square for a ight attack
                X for heavy attack
                Circle for a grapple
                L2 to sprint
                Triangle to pick up/drop weapons
                R2 to issue commands to your fellow Warriors.

                The graphics are remarkable, taking entirely at night, the neon and grime and seedy alleys and lanes of New York are rendered fantastically, punch a enemy and watch the blood splatter from his mouth, smash a bottle across his face and watch the camera zoom in, etc.

                Gameplay is another solid area, lasting 30+ hours, the bonus objectives ad scores for each of the levels add depth and longevity to deceptively short levels. You will probably find yourself playing the same levels over as they are so good, i know i have!

                The sounds are great, and the music is also used to great effect. Featuring atmospheric music from the film, it is an instant gratification for those fans of the film.

                In conclusion the warriors is a very violent game, more than deserving of its 18+ certificate. For those old enough to actually appreciate it however are in for a treat.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Film = awesome. Game = identical. Buy them both. Now.

                  If you have seen Walter Hill's 1979 movie "The Warriors" and enjoyed it then this is the game for you.
                  If not then it tells the tale of New York gangs and their goal to unite and fight against the NYPD in order to rule the city. Unfortunately before this can happen, the leader of the biggest gang is assassinated, and The Warriors (a small time group from Coney Island) are blamed. They must defend themselves as they face every gang whilst trying to return home. It becomes a looooong night.

                  I have always enjoyed buying game adaptations of films that I have seen to compare and contrast, and in the past I have been very disappointed. But no longer. Not only does the game open with the same introduction (only graphically portrayed) but you work your way through every level, situation and gang shown in the movie, with the consequences depending on your gaming ability. And that doesn't even cover the side-missions.

                  The mini-games are great fun, and horribly addictive. It involves many two-player modes and spans situations such as king of the hill, last man standing, hell theres even a wheelchair racing event!

                  All of these aspects are accessed from an incredibley realistic gang hideout, found when the warriors are simply "hanging out" in between missions.

                  The freedom in the gameplay is critical. I love being able to run about and do what you want (not just on the playstation lol)and the multiple weapons make it a little more exciting. Although some items are difficult to see, the way you obtain them is very realistic and a new and popular technique.(includes flash, knives, spray, bottles in bins etc)

                  There is little music as the extensive speech takes the limelght, and its so much fun to listen to. Multiple characters have long, expansive conversations which are great for player involvement. Where there is music, it is the same songs from the film, and fits the game chronologically as well as suiting the genre.

                  There are multiple difficulties depending on your capabilities with fighting RPGs, and an autosave feature which is questionable but can be overlooked for gameplay quality this good.
                  The button configuration takes some getting used to, but you are taken through an important tutorial (intergrated nicely into the story) and once you have covered that, you can evolve to fight like a master.
                  Obviously you need a love for the genre. Certified as an 18, the Warriors contains endless violence and adult language (also some confusing but amusing slang), minor drug use (for health replenishment) and sexual references. But to be honest, what best selling game doesnt these days.

                  If you are a fan of this types of game (think PS2 Grand Theft Autos) then you will not be disappointed. I completed this game in just under 3 months, but I did play it intensely as my young cousins were better than me and I didn't want to be embarassed. Also I am yet to complete all of the mini games so there is much life in it yet. Even for the pros who sail through games, this is a great beat-em-up to come back to just for pure 'physical' satisfaction.

                  The positive points about this game are on an endless list, and the only complaint I can make is only one of personal preference. (I am not keen on autosaving). Great movie, great game, great fun.

                    A film into a game, what more could you want.

                    From the makers of GTA, a old film. Basicaly, you control members of the warriors and go round beating up rival gangs and other gangs which get in your way. It is a very challenging game but it can be completed pretty quicly.
                    Mind the cops because they are pretty hard to lose when their after you so look out on the rader for blue dots. It is not the same as Gta because a few things have been added such as your able to break into cars and steal the radios and aslo you can get in to shops and steal jewals and stuff! Tnheir are even some mini-missions outside of the game such as flashbacks and go onto the streets and cause havoc.

                      Advantages

                      Disadvantages

                      Great Games Based On The Cult Film, Great Story, Gameplay, Levels Plus Great Fun For 2players.

                      Game Info

                      Genre = Gang Action
                      Developer = Rockstar
                      Publisher = Rockstar
                      Players = 1-2 players
                      Age = 18+

                      ---------------------------------------------------------------
                      STORY:
                      The Warriors game based on the film in New York 1979, where one of the main gang leader calls all others gangs to get them all to become one big gang group. Then one of the gangs shoots him and says that the warriors did it. From this point every gang is New york is after you. But don't let this scary you off as the game starts a few months before the film and by this point you'll be ready to take them out. About 80% is set before the film which makes it all new ideas and not just copying the film contents.


                      GRAPHICS:
                      The Graphics are pretty good, the characters look just like the actors in the film ands all other characters has very good detail too. Any cuts and blood that you take fighting on the levels are also show in any cut-scene, which is cool and makes it feel more real.


                      SOUND/MUSIC:
                      There are some good music played though out the game, the sound is excellent from windows smashing, alarms, punches and weapons noises being used. The Voice acting is also excellent, not only they talk in the cut-scenes but also when playing the levels. Later on in the game when doing the stealth levels, the other gangs say stuff like they do in manhunt, like come out and fight you wimp.


                      CONTROLS:
                      The controls are very easy to use, basically there's square and x for light and heave attacks, that can you can do different combos by pressing in different orders. O for grab, Triangle for pick up and other actions. There's buttons for block and fast run. Counters can be made by pressing attack or block a second before they hit you. Pressing Square and X together will perform many special attack, like when standing, grabbing or when grabbing a opponent on the floor. Press L1 and R1 will use your rage bar up, which does extra damage and all specials or different when in rage mode. As well as the fighting controls there are also team orders which is when holding R2 opens up a menu that you choose the order with the right Analogue stick. Theses are orders like, follow me, hold, Wreck them all, scatter and a few more.


                      GAMEPLAY:
                      The gameplay is not just gang fighting but much more like tagging where you use a spray and follow a line in a shape of a W to do you tag. There's mini games thought that you can do like mugging (money for buying flash, sprays and blades), nicking car stereos(also for money), lock picking doors so that you can burgle shops. Picking handcuffs to free your mates. There are some stealth levels near the end of the game (although you can fight your way though it much tougher). There are running sections where you most get away from big gangs by jumping over building gaps, over fences and smacking through items. Each missions you use a different person from your gang of the warriors, Which all have different combos and specials, plus of course different strengths and weaknesses.


                      REPLAY VALUE:
                      Replay Value is very high, there's lots of missions, mini games, there's also bonus missions ion the levels aswell as the walking around your own turf. (A lot of the bonus missions are fun to do), other mini games are chin ups, push ups, sit ups and punching bag which gives you more stamina. Some unlockables from bonus missions are brass knuckles, steel top cap shoes(both to do more damage), more life you get from using flash(a drug that heals you), there are over loads of people to unlock which you can play as in rumble mode. There's many modes includes 1-on-1, 6-on-6, 9-on-9, battle royal(which you have to through the other gang out off the ring, or should i say off the building to win), wheel chair racing and a few more all which you can unlock levels to play in. Flashback missions can be unlocked also which shows you how each member joined the warriors gang. Ones completed you also unlock armies Of The Night which is a game like the old streets of rage games, where you walk from left to right of the screen fight people and bosses. This mode, rumble and also the story mode can all be played in co-op play too. Finally the last thing is that all levels can be replayed to unlock any thing you missed or just want to play for fun over and over again.



                      This is a excellent game to have in your collection, the story mode is not that long but if you do the bonus and side missions as you go it can last over 25 hours. You would have to think hard to find a bad point to this game, i would say it could of done with more moves and that i must also say this game is aged 18 as its very bloody and has a lot of swearing too.
