  1. I think if you're already an established Dynasty Warriors fan, then you'll probably love what Strikeforce is doing for the series. Likewise, if you were a fan and fell off the wagon at some point, this is a great game to jump back on with. Finally, if you've never played a DW game before, or if the series hasn't held much appeal, I think Strikeforce can even be the game for you.
  2. The result is not only addictive as hell, but a promising new start for the series.

    As much item collection as it is button mashing, the changes are both dramatic and welcome -- and dramatic enough that KOEI may have actually found a way to shut up some of the haters. OK, like six of 'em.
  4. The series’ debut of online multiplayer adds replay value to Strikeforce, which is hard to ignore. However, if you’re interested in hack and slash action, there are more polished, next generation games available at fairer prices.
  5. Strikeforce is a great step toward finally integrating the online universe with Dynasty Warriors and an unexpected excuse to lower your head as other gamers pass you by. You’re not hiding or hanging your head in shame, you’re just looking for items.
  6. Fighting, struggling, battling – it‘s nothing less than the Dynasty Warriors franchise you already know. No splitscreen, but online-multiplayer instead, you‘ve got your own upgradeable village with shops, but there‘s not more innovation than before.

    An annoying, ill-fitting mess that only a masochist could enjoy. [Issue#189, p.76]

    Amazing game! I love being able to switch out sub weapons, the combat is very fluid. The character building design is very stream lined, this Amazing game! I love being able to switch out sub weapons, the combat is very fluid. The character building design is very stream lined, this is exactly what the series needed!!! Plus ONLINE CO-OP!! Expand

    On the scale of dynasty warriors, this is perhaps the best redesign of a stale genre that I've ever seen. On the scale of the rest of On the scale of dynasty warriors, this is perhaps the best redesign of a stale genre that I've ever seen. On the scale of the rest of the gaming universe, this is the right step to take to get people re interested in an IP that still has potential. Expand
