  1. The repetitive, but classic Dynasty Warriors gameplay is still perfectly intact and actually just a bit better than previous titles easily making this the best Dynasty Warriors game to date.

    Any hardcore DW fan will be ecstatic to find another billion hours of gameplay to wade through.
  3. If you are looking for an arcade slash game that has the option to use minor elements of strategy then I suggest getting this game; although in honesty there isn't much difference in this game compared to Samurai Warriors.
  4. This sequel actually lacks features found in the Xtreme Legends and Empires versions of Dynasty Warriors 4, which ultimately leaves it feeling a bit lackluster overall.
  5. Graphical improvements are minor, the gameplay enhancements are built to match and the AI is still as awful as it ever was.

    When the gameplay is this stale and DW 5 isn't even optimized for the system (there's no online and the draw distance still blows), there's no reason to take this lemon for a drive. [Oct 2005, p.140]

    Maybe in the next generation of consoles, I'll be able to immerse myself in the pretty graphics and forget I'm playing the same damn game yet again, but not this time.
