  • Summary: Set in Ancient China during the 3rd century, Dynasty Warriors 6 immerses gamers in a truly cinematic kung-fu action experience. Celebrated characters have been completely re-imagined with new weapons and fighting techniques motion-captured from some of today’s leading stuntmen and women in Asia. With the game’s new “Renbu” attack system and game controls, players can execute lightning-fast combos and the most dazzling fighting moves with ease. Developed from the ground up exclusively for next-generation platforms, the game's proprietary engine delivers the most chaotic and challenging Tactical Action experience to date. Players can use the landscape to elude the thousands of soldiers swarming the battlefield. But as players move and attack, adaptable enemy A.I. devises offensive and defensive combat tactics, and can retaliate with packs of fierce hunting dogs and patrol boats. All of the explosive action comes to life in high definition, 60 frames per second graphics. [KOEI] Expand

  1. It could be okay for the true die-hards, but other than that, don’t waste your time.
  2. After eight years. the basic, gut-level hack-and-slash action hasn't changed much, and that makes it hard to keep caring about Dynasty Warriors. [Jan 2009, p.83]
  3. So yeah, if you have an option, skip the PS2 version for the 360 copy.
  4. If this series were to receive a significant upgrade – perhaps via the DW: Gundam sequel – it could finally move beyond its troubled past. For now, unfortunately, it is stuck in a dated, mechanically-challenged form that is all but impossible to enjoy.
  5. Hardcore Dynasty Warriors fans will probably get this title for the storyline alone. More casual fans of the series stay away!
  6. Even though you can climb higher than ever before in Dynasty Warriors 6, the series as a whole seems stuck on the same wrung.
  7. 35
    Dynasty Warriors 6 isn't necessarily broken, but the fundamental formulas that govern the gameplay are terribly stale.
