Deadliest Warrior is based off of the television show of the same name. Much like the show, various warriors from different time periods and locations do battle, with gameplay being similar to that of the Mortal Kombat games. It's time to find out who truly is the Deadliest Warrior of them all!

The battles in this game are fairly quick, some ending within 10 seconds due to instant-kill shots, or swift combos.

Single Player:
Like most fighting games, there is an Arcade Mode. This is where you should start. Most of the achievements, and the Avatar Awards, can be unlocked here. You can start on the hardest difficulty, Deadliest, to obtain Who's Deadliest Now?, but I suggest to start on Normal to get a feel of the game. If you don't heed my warning, go on to the next part.

If you think you're up to it, you can attempt completing Arcade on Deadliest. Although you'll only need to finish with the Ninja, Viking and Knight to get Who's Deadliest Now?, you can keep going for the Samurai Helmet Avatar Award. This is, of course, assuming you have completed the Arcade on an easier level.

Some things to remember:
-Don't get cocky if you win a match. It only takes one second to turn the tables around.
-Be patient. There's a good chance you won't win the first time. Don't let it discourage you, though.
-If you haven't already, win the mini-games with all of the characters. You'll need to in order to obtain all the unlockable weapons for the Deadliest Arsenal achievement. You also earn these by defeating the character your playing as and by winning the Arcade with them altogether.
-If you're having trouble with using a warrior you aren't used to, try going into Practice and try out the combos.

After finishing Arcade Mode with all characters (on any difficulty), Challenge Mode will be unlocked for Single Player. Under it, there will Survival. Here, you can try for Against All Odds. It will take some time, but if you use the techniques you picked up in Arcade Mode it shouldn't be as hard.

After completing the Single Player, it's time for some online Multiplayer. There is only one achievement here, it being Tournament to Kill, but playing locally can help boost for other achievements you've missed.

For the aforementioned achievement, you'll need to win three matches in a row in Tournament Mode for it to count as a "win." In total, you'll need about 30 Tournament match wins, assuming you win all of them in succession.

If you've missed any achievements, now's the time to get back to them. That Was Sparta can be the most lengthy. I suggest going into Battle Mode and setting it to 5 rounds. If you haven't got it yet, you can also try for A Head of the Competition at the same time. Black Night can easily be done by using the Pirates Special Attack, :bbut:+:ybut:, just remember to run away before the grenade explodes. Pin Cushion, Flesh Wound, On Death's Door, Right on Time, and Shishkabob can be boosted locally with a second controller on stand-by, or online with a friend.

Deadliest Warrior is a fun arcade title, with fun and interesting achievements, solid gameplay, great premise and an addictive multiplayer experience.
