    A button-masher with a strategy-game pedigree, Koei's Dynasty Warriors DS: Fighter's Battle straddles the line between two genres with awkward balance. [Sep 2007, p.87]
  2. However, Dynasty's old faults--poor AI and monotonous battling--are readily apparent. [July 2007, p.107]
  3. Rack up truly impressive body counts in ancient China, over and over again, for several hours.

    A competent but ultimately soulless and uninspired slash 'em up that doesn't push the DS to anywhere near its full capabilities. [Oct 2007, p.94]

    I'm thinking Koei should've just dubbed this one My First Dynasty Warriors, as this romp through ancient China is ridiculously basic. [Aug 2007, p.81]
  6. The gameplay works decently enough but it lacks any depth. The battle card system feels unimportant, and you'll blaze through the game in a day. Time to bury this dynasty in the history books.
  7. There is simply nothing here worth playing, nothing here worth buying and it stands as yet one more clue (as if they need any more) that Koei needs to move on to greener pastures and bury this franchise once and for all.
