  • Summary: Dynasty Warriors 4 takes battlefield action to the next level, allowing players to experience the thrill of taking on multiple opponents at once and fighting against impossible odds. A host of new features add greater depth to the gameplay, as well as more insight into the characters and turbulent events of the Three Kingdoms era. The concepts of Honor and Loyalty in the face of adversity serve as the main theme for the game. The obligations of generals to their Lords and Allies guide the paths of these warriors as the fight to unify a divided empire. [KOEI] Expand

  1. With the exception of a few minor complaints, Dynasty Warriors 4 is as close to action-gaming Nirvana as you're going to get for quite a while.
  2. Regardless of its faults, Dynasty 4 is a pure adrenaline rush - the type, for me, that only the original "Devil May Cry" has rivaled on PS2. [May 2003, p.92]
  3. I've put more than 100 hours into the game so far, and haven't unlocked everything.

    Koei's obviously performed emergency surgery on the AI routines, because everyone's a thousand times smarter now.
  5. Graphics, control, strategic thought, brawn and even the so-cheesy-you-get-used-to-it rock music and voices work in tandem for an intense experience unlike any other on PS2.
  6. Dynasty Warriors 4 is good, but it's the same kind of good that Koei has been releasing for almost three years now.
  7. I got bored about halfway through due to the repetitive nature of the gameplay despite some new improvements and a two-player mode... It would be nice if there were more depth to the strategy and story development.

    I got to play on a demo for dw2 and i was hooked and brought along with 3 and xtreme legends, but don't have enough money to buy 4 and it's killing me. This game is more than awsome its the best game in the world. My friend that doesn't even like games was hooked. I LOVE THIS GAME. Expand

    Thsi game is like other dynasty warriors. Strategy should be implentend. Just buy previous dynasty warriors who are now at the so called platinum label. Wich is cheaper. Repetitive fighting doesn't earn a price tag off 50 dollars. Expand
