  1. Sometimes a friend and I just sit back and see how many enemies we can take out before we die - forget the mission, fighting bad guys is the way to go!
  2. This is really just an upgrade to DW3, so if you’ve got that, you’re probably better off waiting for DW4, but then it does open up new features in DW3 and has an extra hard difficulty level, so if you’re a DW nut... But if you fancy taking your first foray into the series, this is definitely the best one so far.
  3. Plagued with bad camera issues as well as the repetitive action of the original, this remix to DW3 isn’t much of an improvement but its added content is just too good to pass up if you already own the original.
  4. The hacking 'n' slashing power never grows old, because your path to winning a battle is wide open. [Feb 2003, p.100]

    It's repetitive and (to be honest) gets dull after a while, but the sheer scope of Xtreme Legends keeps it engaging for a reasonably long time.

    I can definitely say that it does add to the lifespan of DW3, and that it is definitely worth a rental if you have the original and enjoyed playing it, maybe even worth buying if you can find it for under $20, like I did.

    Isn't exactly a new game, [but] it is one of the coolest budget titles around. [Jan 2003, p.40]

    Dynasty Warriors 3 xtreme legends is a game that really brought the gaming spirit out of me playing it. The main point I want to bring up Dynasty Warriors 3 xtreme legends is a game that really brought the gaming spirit out of me playing it. The main point I want to bring up about the game is the bodyguards. Those dudes and now chics! Make the game all worth wild. From when they start from mere fledgelings as privates, to where they go off and actually kick the S@#$ out of most of all folks they come in contact with is an experience to me that never gets boring. I mean you work your butt off to keep them from getting killed at first. But when they turn into the supreme guard class of warriors, it's on!! And don't let one of those folks get killed, vengence is a mother!^%@#!! Expand

    Even if it can get repetitive, the storyline is great and I'm glad that female characters take a more active role in the game.

    The Dynasty Warriors series still is on top on my fighting list. I wonder when the series will fall flat.
