  1. Though in general a direct Dynasty Warriors clone, Devil Kings does try to take this familiar play style and make it something different, though it sacrifices the things that made Dynasty Warriors so popular amongst PlayStation 2 owners.

    "Dynasty Warriors" is an excellent series, but Devil Kings is just downright exciting to play, and there's something about being able to remember the names of the characters that's nice too.
  3. Although the game borrows liberally from its contemporaries, Devil Kings manages to have fun with the formula by removing any sense of pretension or seriousness, leaving a game that's a lot of fun to play.
  4. Devil Kings is a beat-em up romp of wanton destruction more than anything else, and it's a very good one.
  5. Congratulations to Capcom for creating something fun and exciting. The bottom line is that this game is worthy of your attention.
  6. There is plenty to like about Devil Kings, the presentation is top notch and the combo system really does have you trying to chain up the hits.

While nothing spectacular, presents a fun arcade-style hack n' slash experience in the style of devil may cry and dynasty/samurai warriors and doesn't take itself too seriously. Because of the arcade like style the game has plenty of content and doesn't have to be cleared all at once, infact you shouldn't just to spare you hands and controller. There is enough depth and differences in the gameplay that doesn't make it too repetitive. A shame this game is so underrated and people fail to appreciate it as it is. And it is fairly easy to find on sale cheap nowadays. Pick it up before it is too late. Full Review »
