During the early stages, it received good previews. In the end, however, it was panned by critics. The fact that it was released on the 3DO (which had controllers that were difficult to use) did not help at all. Nevertheless, it is considered better than most ''Mortal Kombat'' imitators of the time.

Released for the short-lived [[UsefulNotes/ThreeDOInteractiveMultiplayer 3DO]], '''''Way of the Warrior''''' was one of the first Creator/NaughtyDog creations. It was largely made in basements and houses of the developers, using their friends to represent the digitized, live-action fighters.

Released by Universal in 1995 for the short-lived [[UsefulNotes/ThreeDOInteractiveMultiplayer 3DO]], '''''Way ''Way of the Warrior''''' Warrior'' was one of the first Creator/NaughtyDog creations. It was largely made in basements and houses of the developers, using their friends to represent the digitized, live-action fighters.




Despite it's poor reception, ''Way of the Warrior'' was considered good enough to give Naughty Dog the chance to keep producing games, which ended up in video game jewels like ''Videogame/CrashBandicoot1996'', ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter'', and ''Videogame/{{Uncharted}}''.

One of the many [[FightingGame fighting games]] [[FollowTheLeader that tried to copy]] ''MortalKombat''.

One of the many [[FightingGame fighting games]] [[FollowTheLeader that tried to copy]] ''MortalKombat''.''Franchise/MortalKombat''.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Expy}}:
** Mortal Kombat pastiches are: Ninja (based on the Ninjas (Scorpion, Sub-Zero, etc.), but also given the ability [[ShockAndAwe to perform Lightning attacks]] similar to that of Raiden), Konotori (Having an appearance similar to that of the aforementioned thunder god, but having a play style and techniques much like those of [[WeaponizedHeadgear Kung Lao]] and [[CombatHandFan Kitana]]) and, to lesser degrees, Dragon and Fox (based on Liu Kang and Jax). One might also claim Shaky Jake as being a copy of Kano, but it is an aversion and [[HilariousInHindsight merely coincidental]] as Kano wasn't portrayed as being Australian until the 1995 Film/MortalKombat movie and in canon in 2000's Videogame/MortalKombatSpecialForces.
** Franchise/StreetFighter and FinalFight pastiches include: Nikki Chan (Chun-Li), Major Gaines (based on Guile), [[SecretCharacter Gulab Jamun]] (based on Dhalsim), and Crimson Glory (Poison).
** Nobunaga is likely a tribute to the Samurai Shodown series by Creator/SNK.
** The aforementioned Shaky Jake is an obvious copy of Film/CrocodileDundee, even including the line of "This is a Knife!"

* NotDrawnToScale: The game tried to mimic ''SamuraiShodown'''s scaling backgrounds and combatants depending on their distance from one another, but there's very little consistency in how the fighters get zoomed. At one point, one character will tower over another; the next they will be evenly sized.

* ActingForTwo: Jason Rubin, co-founder of Creator/NaughtyDog, is both the Ninja and Konotori.



* MeaningfulName: Major Gaines gets major (muscle) gains from his super mode.



* SigilSpam: A [[http://www.goatstore.com/photos/Other/3DO/463032_Way-of-the-Warrior_logo+disc_00.jpg three-sided Yin-Yang]] is featured prominently in the game, including on the announcer's forehead. The third side is red and bleeds over the other two. He helpfully explains that it represents good, evil, and the pain caused by the suffering between them.
