  • 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. While not every change has been positive, the series was in desperate need of a fresh start, and now, in its sixth major iteration, it has one.
  2. With special effects-packed visuals and with higher production values than ever, Dynasty Warriors seems less niche than ever. [May 2008, p.81]
  3. For those who have never experienced the DW series before, this is the perfect place to start, and either find a challenging, delightfully tactical slice of unpretentious fun or unearth a deformed, unlovable, fossilised relic of a bygone age.
  4. We just wish Omega Force would step forward and issue a major upgrade for this franchise.
  5. The best non-Gundam DW game yet. That being said, it's still not a large enough improvement to justify purchase over the much cheaper last-gen models you can probably get for less than $10 at this point.
  6. This is just like every other Dynasty Warriors game ever, but somehow duller. [May 2008, p.115]
  7. 30
    Avoid this shameful anathema like a toilet cubicle with an unflushed poo in it. [Issue#164, p.94]

    I swear these Dynasty Warriors reviews really do write themselves! Those who are not fans aren't immersed the real-life history and people that this game is based on, as well as the classic novel known as Romance of The Three Kingdoms by Luo Guangzuo. For me that's part of the appeal of the DW series, is that I'm playing though actual events and battles with real heroes from back then. That's not to say that there aren't a few fictional elements. Lots of fans are fans of the history as well. It only makes this game more entertaining. Expand

    Everyone tends to be so harsh on dynasty warriors, but the graphics in this game are pretty good, there's an insane amount going on, so much more than in previous dynasty warriors games, and the simple yet fun gameplay has deeper customization options. The new renbu system is also top! Expand

    Graphics are excellent and still very fun to play even though it is repetitive but the annoying thing is the limited characters on Story Mode.

    This is a good game, but why Dynasty Warriors 6's game style is different than another Dynasty Warriors series? Renbu, no Square>Triangle combination, and another.... But the story make me to beat this game... Expand

    This has got to be the stupidest f*cking game you could buy for the ps3. Know why? BECAUSE THEY'RE PRACTICALLY ALL THE SAME. Sure, new renbu system and it looks better, but still the same ol game. Expand
