  • Summary: The Romance of the Three Kingdoms comes to life in Dynasty Warriors 2. As a general in second-century China, you must lead your troops into epic battles against thousands of warriors. On horseback or on foot, you'll use various weapons and combo attacks to forge a path into enemy lines and scatter all who dare stand in your path. Strategic planning is key to victory, as enemies can attack from all sides and when you least expect it. Expand

    A wild, chaotic, and intense strategy game as much as it is an action title, so those of you who've always wanted to be a war hero can strap on some armor and get to it.
  2. Being part of a battle on such massive scale has never been as convincingly portrayed before.
  3. Despite its simple core, Dynasty Warriors 2 is appealing to me. The action gets very intense with the sheer number of people on screen.
  4. A bit too simplistic and lacks in replayability. Unfortunately there is also no multiplayer option, but the smooth graphics and unique elements to the game may redeem this.
  5. Character detail comes at the cost of the environments, which are bland and plain. However, the onscreen action gets so hectic that players won't have much time to hang out and take in the sights.
  6. The best thing about the game is the freedom to do whatever you want.
  7. 30
    If you've only got an attention span of ten minutes this is great. If you've got an IQ in double digits you should take this as a direct insult to your man/womanhood. Absolute cack.

    Its a no brainer! You run about bashing buttons beating up 100's of characters. Not worth buying but maybe renting, if you have a single figure IQ. Expand
