  • 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.

    When I first got the game for PS2, I thought it was going to be easy like the other ones,but after playing as Guan Yu I realized it's not as easy as I thought. So as a result i'm trying harder and harder and now... I just can't wait till the extreme legends come out and maybe an Empire one to??????? Well Get the game, If you haven't got it already! Collapse

    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. 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.
