    I was excited when I first heard about this, then worried when I saw game stores dropping it's price to $40 just a week after it cameI was excited when I first heard about this, then worried when I saw game stores dropping it's price to $40 just a week after it came out. I'll agree that the graphics are NOT outsatnding and the sound library is weak at best, but the game is just incredibly fun. Having up to 50 enemies on screen to fight with at once is pretty wild. I'd suggest it to any ight gun or Dynasty Warriors fan. If you are like me and enjoy mindless fun, then this is a great game for you. Full Review »

The controls are a little wonky, but the graphics and gameplay are ok. The fun part is the Musou attacks where you get to swing your weapon (Wii Remote) wildly. If you have a good sense of imagination this can be pretty entertaining. All in all this is not the greatest game, but it is fun to play if you are willing to get up off your butt and act like a dork for a while. I'd recomend renting it or buying it at a discount when things get slow. Full Review »
