    I like this game because although it does have some problems, who doesnt like being nearly invinicble and hacking through tons of enemies while slicing and dicing hapless enemy heros, among other things. Why not give it a ten? Sure the camera work sucks but, look on the bright side, it is rather entertaining, for a an hour or two, to send scores of people flying in all directions.

    I bought this game 4 days ago, and the amazement I have towards this game cannot be put into words, because this stuff is actually challenging, and worth playing, if I may say so. If I was an octopus with opposable thumbs, I'd give it 8 thumbs up!

  1. Exhilarating because you're tasked with turning the tide of the conflict by hacking through scores of enemies with an array of combos, projectile attacks (including bows and bombs) and some superb special Musou moves that first need to be powered up. Infuriating because the abysmal camera makes it virtually impossible to face the enemy for any prolonged period, meaning you're soon being flanked faster than a bitch on heat in an all-male dog sanctuary.

    Not so much heroic as the world's most violent way of developing RSI. [Christmas 2005, p.97]
  3. Other than its repetitiveness, disappointing draw-distances and dodgy camera, Dynasty Warriors 4 Hyper isn’t actually all that bad. In fact, despite its attempt to look tactical and thoughtful in its objective screens, the entirely unexpected bombastic soundtrack makes it clear that, at its heart, there’s no pretension of it being anything other than a cracking little arcade fighter.
