    First of all, I'd like to second all the negative reviews about this game because it's all absolutely true. Yes, the game does play like the other Dynasty Warriors games but the battles usually leave something to be desired. There is no main general, you'll get the same cpu allies everytime(if you're solo farming)with a real general ''maybe'' popping up every now and then if their side isFirst of all, I'd like to second all the negative reviews about this game because it's all absolutely true. Yes, the game does play like the other Dynasty Warriors games but the battles usually leave something to be desired. There is no main general, you'll get the same cpu allies everytime(if you're solo farming)with a real general ''maybe'' popping up every now and then if their side is losing the battle but the few times I've actually seen this they've come when the battle is just about over, some have come when there is literally only 5 to 10 seconds left in the battle. The modes there are all pretty much about either base capturing, killing a certain amount of enemies, or certain amount of generals and there's just not much strategy at all in this game. The quests in this game are also a joke, there are a few that are pretty easy and it's good that quests are repeatable but there are some quests that you won't be able to do or get a good grade on without the help of some sort of guide, and I'm just talking about some of the newbie quests, I can't imagine how the higher ranked ones would be. Also quests are never fun in this game, or they don't feel like it at least, every time I did a quest I just wanted to get it over with and I don't think I've ever felt that way in a Dynasty Warriors game. Reason being is that the quests range from, destroying towers in a base(which is very boring btw)to having to kill multiple bandits with super armor, meaning that they don't flinch from your attacks and they can also kill u in about 3 hits, are you serious...? And if that wasn't bad enough, they do have quests where you can play with others but with most they are solo only quests... why? This is an mmo, you shouldn't ''have'' to do quests solo, especially if some are near impossible. I heard on the forums that this game was all just about pvp anyway and that a lot of the lower ranked players were just alts of veteran players. I don't know about anyone else but I think a game should try to be solid in every area it can, not just pvp. There are a few good things about the game though, like being able to customize your characters looks, use many different weapons and there is also crafting but in order to do it you'll need a great deal of patience since it requires a lot of farming. You can also get lieutenants which can range from humans to animals but this also requires farming and the chances of finding them are increased if there are more players but this also means that one of the other players could get the lieutenant. The game could've been good but it's just so watered down and doesn't feel like a real Dynasty Warriors game because all they focused on is pvp and pvp alone. Expand

    The Koei's well-known saga is now a mmorpg for Aeria Games. Dynasty Warriors Online has the same imperfections of the main title, and the same appeal: the fans will enjoy this free mmorpg, everyone else is not invited to the party

    Dynasty Warriors Online is a competent, if a little droll, recreation of the longstanding franchise with just as much polish as you would expect from a regular installment. Considering it's free-to-play, that's commendable.
