  • Summary: Infiltrate enemy strongholds with three of your friends in Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce.

  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. One of the better Dynasty Warriors games to come along in a while. Unfortunately, these extra elements added to the fairly stale DW formula aren’t quite enough to overlook its shortcomings.
  3. Many new features, a great longevity and a vast and varied characters roster makes this the best game yet in the Dynasty Warriors franchise.
  4. 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.
  5. If you're seriously considering paying over £40 for a game that has barely changed since 2000 then you're probably better off putting that money towards a psych evaluation.
  6. You can instantly tell that Strikeforce originally was a portable game for PSP. The graphics feels dated, the controls are wonky and everything just has a cheap overall feeling. Still, the multiplayer is quite OK and the battles are just huge.
  7. The worst DW game of this generation. [Mar 2010, p.109]

    Time to reconsider my previous rating. This game has serious flaws, which become apparent after spending about an hour playing. The boss battles are horrid. Fighting Lu Bu in the flooded city becomes tedious because you can't jump well and you can't swim. Fighting Dong Zhou becomes annoying because of his "friend" who can trap and slowly kill you while you can't do anything about it. Also, the targeting mechanic is heavily flawed. If I lock onto an enemy, and move, it will pick a new target, usually a useless one. This game is not better than DW6, which while flawed, was less annoying. That gives it a 5/10 for me. Expand
