Celebrated characters have been completely re-imagined with new weapons and fighting techniques motion-captured from some of today’s leading stuntmen and women in Asia. With the game’s new “Renbu” attack system and game controls, players can execute lightning-fast combos and the most dazzling fighting moves with ease. Developed from the ground up exclusively for next-generation platforms, the game's proprietary engine delivers the most chaotic and challenging Tactical Action experience to date. Players can use the landscape to elude the thousands of soldiers swarming the battlefield. But as players move and attack, adaptable enemy A.I. devises offensive and defensive combat tactics, and can retaliate with packs of fierce hunting dogs and patrol boats. All of the explosive action comes to life in high definition, 60 frames per second graphics. [KOEI] Expand

    Dynasty Warriors 6 isn't necessarily broken, but the fundamental formulas that govern the gameplay are terribly stale.

    The game is fun. If you never played Dynasty Warriors before this will be a blast. Unlike previous versions, this one fully supports The game is fun. If you never played Dynasty Warriors before this will be a blast. Unlike previous versions, this one fully supports widescreen resolutions, and has an updated graphics engine. The two player split screen works, but reduces the visual quality. I had fun playing this game and unlocked all the characters. Maybe you will too, just make sure you have a gamepad. Also there is a bug with x360 gamepads. Google it for the fix which is a simple file swap. This game is probably only an 8, but since dynasty warriors gets so much crap I gave it a 10. Expand

    first off, ign giving the game a 30 is pretty funny. well the story revolves around the three kingdoms period where basically you control onefirst off, ign giving the game a 30 is pretty funny. well the story revolves around the three kingdoms period where basically you control one of several characters from of these factions and battle it out to determine the next ruler of China. graphics are pretty good not great but does the job. and controls are solid, the 360 controller is compatible, not correctly mapped but still good. everything else is extra dressing. lots of extra features like background story on characters, musou mode, lots to do. gameplay is pretty much, hack and slash real time action fighting. you can upgrade your character with different skill sets and weapons. no control of your own army in this one, so you go solo mostly. if you have played any previous dynasty warriors than not much different from gameplay standpoint.

    Nice graphic updates over the previous series and the history behind the characters is amazing. The motion captures martial arts is a niceNice graphic updates over the previous series and the history behind the characters is amazing. The motion captures martial arts is a nice touch but changes it so all the weapons are realistic aka boring. Everyone has a sword or a spear now. The game is also very tough compared to the previous ones. Overall a good game for fans of the series. Expand
