Game description: Follow the path of the Samurai Warriors through all new tales in Story, Free, and Survival modes.

Second game in the Samurai Warriors series, the gameplay of Samurai Warriors 2 builds on the first by adding new characters and new features, such as the removal of the traditional range attacks in favor of the addition of two unique special abilities that differ from character to character and a Sugoroku mini-game.
||Europe v01.70(27/02/2003), Recommended,MTVU, Works great, some slowdowns when around huge enemy crowds (even the PS2 console had those), 'True Musou' attacks make the emulator get stuck on a black screen, making the game unplayable after you get the 'Awakening 2' skill with any player or use a musou attack when near death.|
||USA v02.20(10/02/2006), completed, light game for any cpu/gpu.|
|NTSC-U||Windows 7 SP1||
||Laptop (4GB RAM), works great (currently 10 hours in gameplay). No slow down. Minor video glitches at some cutscenes (some noises at top and bottom of the video).||siu shan|
||1.5 (dev-3179-ga36d5a022)||GSDX||SPU2-X||Auto Interlacing, 3x Native, 16x Ani-Filtering. Runs steady 60fps outside of large scale battles where slowdown is expected on console. Issue with artifacting with text. Issue appears to persist in most musou games and only work around I can find is to run native or SW mode so if you cannot find a workaround its a trade off. However artifacting is negligible otherwise almost perfect.||yoshi278|
