    Fairly fun, but has severe graphical issues. The sight range is pitifully short for units, not to mention that the game can't show more than twenty some guys on screen at a time, so guys will pop in and out of sight. Although if they aren't visible, the game engine thinks they aren't even there, so they really pop in and out of existance.

Although if they aren't visible, the game engine thinks they aren't even there, so they really pop in and out of existance. I guess the game does this in an attempt to run smoothly. Too bad that it still fails to do so. Slowdown occurs fairly regularly. Playing two player, the slowdown is near constant, and makes the game nigh unplayable. Even more fun is that the character limit counts both screens, so player 1 will see 17 guys, and player 2 will see 3, even if they are looking at the same pack of enemies. One player will be beating on a boss that the other can't see or touch.
    If you can see past these issues, the game is pretty fun. I just hate when companies put out games that don't run smoothly. Gameplay should never be sacrificed for graphics.

    The Dynasty Warriors series seems to have its fans, how else could you explain all these sequels, but it hasn't evolved one iota over the years and the gameplay still seems to involve little more than button bashing your way through endless hordes of enemies.

    Existing fans will enjoy it I suppose but everyone else should steer well clear.

    Dynasty Warriors 6 isn't necessarily broken, but the fundamental formulas that govern the gameplay are terribly stale.
  2. 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.
  3. Even though you can climb higher than ever before in Dynasty Warriors 6, the series as a whole seems stuck on the same wrung.
