    This is by far the best game I've ever played. Though she's very annoying, Xiao Qiao is my favourite.

    It needs better graphics and more characters,oh yeah you should also be able to choose whitch weapon you want on a charecter.You should also improve your edit mode, because it is not that good.

    If you’re new to the game, go out and get the original instead as it has a fun campaign to follow. For those who just can’t get enough Dynasty Warriors, you’ll probably have a blast from the mix of modes this expansion has to offer.

    Yes, [it's] still using the same dated graphics engine that appeared in "DW4", and the music and sound effects likewise remain the same. But the fun, challenging, and over-the-top gameplay that has made this series so successful is also still here.
  3. The new Legend, Challenge, and Xtreme modes offer more scenarios for each character. This helps keep things fresh, even if the beat 'em up routine is the same. [Dec 2003, p.150]
