Game Players
Conquest of Japan marks quite an advance for the Micro Miniature system, and though that system has some way to go before it generates the kind of realism Impressions is striving for, it nevertheless makes for interesting, somewhat offbeat war games.

Computer Gaming World (CGW)
Pseudo-historical game of medieval Japan. It is marred by a user interface that is difficult to use and a random setup which makes any pretense to history purely coincidental.

Power Play
Puhh! Samurai ist ein halbherziges Strategiespiel mit historischem Hintergrund. Hat man erst einmal den komplexen, benutzerunfreundlichen Einstieg hinter sich, wartet das Spiel mit verwirrenden und oberflächlichen Spielelementen auf. Der Spielspaß versumpft im konfusen und langweiligen Herumgeklicke auf einige Icons. Ist es zu Beginn noch halbwegs faszinierend, die kleinen Männchen in die Schlachten zu lenken, wird Samurai sehr schnell öde. Keine neuen Spielideen; Gags Fehlanzeige. Gerade diese hätten das einigermaßen solide Strategiekonzept angenehm verziert. So bleibt ein langweiliges Taktikgeklicke, das lediglich Nippon-Freaks gefallen könnte.
