    When I started playing the game I wanted to call everyone I knew and tell them how much this game rocked. I wanted to grab people by the ear, sit them down and have them watch me fight a battle and yell out, "You see that! THAT'S why I play games, baby!"

    DT does a great job of showing what the genre is capable of on a next gen system. [Oct 2002, p.146]

    Dynasty Tactics makes the sometimes slow and daunting challenge of launching grid-based military campaigns fun and entertaining.

    This is a game that most people will roundly detest.
  5. Strategy games are never meant to be flashy or hectic, but if they become too slow and complicated for the sake of being complicated…well, then we have a problem. Dynasty Tactics walks a very fine line here, and luckily, does not fall into the aforementioned abyss.

    A lot of work obviously went into the battle engine, but it's buried underneath such a thick layer of dry minutiae and inconsequential plot.

    I really like the game. My armies are cool and I wouldn't be caught at any campaign without my favorite character Lu Bu to help.

    Great game, very well done, but by god it's easy. I've never come close to losing a battle. Needs a difficulty setting.
