    This game is really quite great. The combat is pretty much just like every other Dynasty Warriors game, but the strategic element staves off any monotony that can come from the repeated and relatively simplistic combat. What results from the combination of the combat and the strategic side is a game that's complex enough to satisfy any management desires, fun enough to make you enjoy the constant back-and-forth of defense and invasion, and interesting enough that you will want to experience the many different scenarios that can result from different play styles, campaigns, and leadership roles.

    It seems to me that critics love to hate this series of games because they think it is the same, at core a button masher though it is much more than that. The latest entry in the Dynasty Warriors Empires is a brilliant game, a strategy game were you follow an officer as they fight for their faction in china to control and change its future. While playing you create your own story within one of Six Scenarios. The focus on this is broken into to build your own empire or being a mercenary fighting for whom ever pays you. The Good 20 plus hours of game play with a different story each time you play/ Improved create your own officer/ two weapon system/ Game Play is easy to get the hang of/ Custom units/ Leveling system for weapons and Char. The Bad PS3 only. Overall the game is fantastic and if you’re looking for a good button masher and good strategy game. Also if your looking to jump into this series go for this game. Expand

    You have to enjoy a game where you're the general of an empire and decide who to attack and enjoy slaughtering you enemies. Though, it is repetitive from other empire games with extra features, this game is still very enjoyable to play.

    Side note: I noticed that there a lot of critics that have no idea what they are talking about. They criticize this game for being the same thing as its
    previous games, but they would worship the call of duty series. If anything is super repetitive and has nothing unique about it, then that would be call of duty's forte. Expand

    Dynasty Warriors hasn't changed much as a franchise over the years. Each episode has its additions, of course, but the developers have never really strayed from the beaten path. Dynasty Warriors 7, dubbed Empires, is not a great game. There's a bunch of technical problems, the graphics are disappointingly average, the menu stutters and the camera irritates. Fans will probably like it, though - newcomers won't. And it's a shame the multiplayer's a waste - there's hardly anyone online to play with.

    With Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires, we will again beat up Chinese soldiers, 1 Vs. 100, over the hours. In addition to the impressive selection of characters and stories, the new way of creating heroes is quite nice. They have also added a small amount of strategy (alliances, diplomacy...), but it is quite limited, unlike the battle arenas, which are larger than ever. Graphically, it is the equivalent to a game at the end of the Xbox life... yes, the first one. Finally, no major changes to the series: the fans will be pleased, the others, those who moved on to something else a long time ago, will remain unmoved.
  3. Mindless, shallow fun if you’ve never played one before but it really is the same as 6 and 5 and 4. [April 2013, p77]
