  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.

    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.

    Time to reconsider my previous rating. This game has serious flaws, which become apparent after spending about an hour playing. The bossTime 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. Full Review »
