  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. This is the first time I've played a Dynasty Warriors game and it felt fresh in a long, long time.
  3. Offering little in the way of innovation, it will keep fans of the series very happy and is definitely an essential purchase if you have ever enjoyed a DW game in the past.
  4. If you're a fan of hack n' slash, I recommend you go get this flawed but immensely satisfying title.
  5. Newcomers who simply want to wade into a war by wildly swinging their swords may find what they are looking for here, while series veterans will find themselves back in familiar territory as they battle through the threads of China's tumultuous past.

    Toujours à la rue graphiquement et toujours aussi nul à jouer si tant est que l'on puisse appeler ce truc un "jeu". Affligeant et consternant,Toujours à la rue graphiquement et toujours aussi nul à jouer si tant est que l'on puisse appeler ce truc un "jeu". Affligeant et consternant, on cherche un intérêt quelconque même le plus minime à une merde pareille : en vain. Cet énième épisode ne peut même pas prétendre au rang de vil nanar qui ferait rigoler une soirée où on serait assez bourré pour "jouer" à ce machin, car ce n'est même pas drôle. Un abîme de nullité.

The Dynasty Warriors series is so wildly popular there that changing the basic gameplay would be suicide for Koei. This is basically the Japanese version of Madden in the US. Not a lot of changes from year to year, but still wildly successful.

    I am a big fan of the Dynasty Warriors series, but I have no illusions about the "ground breaking" design. This game, quite simply, is HUGE amounts of non-complex fun. There are levels of complexity that fans will dig into, but if you have never played a DW game before you can just pick it up and instantly become the bully on the school yard of feudal China.

    This iteration of DW actually does have some major improvements over its predecessors, most notable is some actually decent storytelling and voice work (and translations) which have been somewhat lacking in other versions. You can also customize your character's abilities to a small degree as well as a number of other small tweaks that Koei has made.

    Basically it's like this; saying that this is the same game you have played since college is identical to saying that playing Madden now is the same as when it was on the Genesis in '96. It is, and it isn't.

    I urge you to try out this game, even just to rent it. Koei games never get good reviews because their games aren't cutting edge, but they are a LOT of fun.
