Does it manage to deliver a polished experience to the fans of old school FPS? Let’s dive in and find out.

The cleverly titled “Berserk and The Band of the Hawk” is the latest entry in Koei Tecmo’s series of anime themed Dynasty Warriors spin-offs. These games usually take the trademarked aesthetic and atmospheric tones found in each respective series and match that with a never ending amount of soldiers to carve your way through as your favorite anime protagonist.
