    Very good game, particularly learning the intracies of the empire mode. It's actually very easy to pick up (takes less than 5 minutes to feel like an old pro), but deep enough that you probably won't master it immediately. Very similar to past installments, but newer and better with more options. For the price, this is a very good game.

    If you enjoy other dynasty warriors games you will enjoy this one. And there are tons of achievements to keep you busy.

    What I did get is some good co-op play, an extension of the Empire mode that I enjoyed a while back, and a current-gen price tag acting almost as an apology from Koei for the lack of innovation.

    While a fairly competent game, it just doesn't manage to add enough new content to make it worth a serious look.
  3. Once again, the Empires expansion of Koei's long-running hack-and-slash action series turns out to be the bright spot amid the doldrums of endless button-mashing, thanks to some legitimately interesting strategy.
