Nostalgia can be a great thing.
The Warriors was originally released back in 2005. Wow, I was just 12 years old. But I remember going over a friends house to see that he was stuck to this game like a really bad rash. The fact that we were too young to play it just made the brutality even more brutal!
Thankfully, Rockstar have developed their own rash recently. One that just tells them to churn out their greatest hits from bygone consoles and to re-release them onto something we are more accustomed to, the PS4. Following the release of the likes of Bully, GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas we are now blessed with The Warriors.
Check out the PlayStation Store description.
New York, 1979. A battle on the streets. The armies of the night number 60,000 strong, and tonight 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 of the city. All that stands between The Warriors and their survival are 20 miles and thousands of street gang members.
