    Possibly the best Dynasty Warriors game yet. The combat system is a ton of fun and lets you change weapons on the fly as you beat your lowly enemies into pulp in a mesmerizing display of flying bodies and bright color.

    This new chapter in the Dynasty Warriors saga introduces some interesting changes on gameplay. The new story mode is fascinating, and the introduction of the 2 weapons really interesting. The gameplay and the graphics are similar to the previous chapter, so the fans will like it, while the others find the game repetitive and boring.

    As usual with the Dynasty Warriors sequels, few things have been improved since the last game. And while it's entertaining, the core game still feels too repetitive after a few played hours. The series needs a real reboot next time.

    A title that will only appeal to hack and slash fanatics, and will push away many people looking for something more.

    Dynasty Warriors may have once provided a novel experience, but like metrosexuality and Jennifer Aniston's hair, things that fascinated us a decade ago eventually grow tiresome.

    Still virtually the same game as released on the PlayStation 2 in 2000, with only the most minor changes to the hatefully shallow gameplay.

As the series goes on Koei constantly improves on Dynasty Warriors except for 6 when they took a huge risk and fell on their faces. Some people may hate the series, but that doesn't make it a bad game, IGN gave it a 50 mentioning if you do not like the series do not touch the game. Well that is a horrible opinion to have since they've played previous titles which might've bored them with the series. But if a person never touched the series they will surely love to just hack and slash away at thousands of soldiers. So yes its nice to read a few reviews but its best to remember they are just personal opinions. Check out a video of the game and see if its for you. Expand

    Most game critics write off any new Dynasty Warriors games as repetitive and boring and claim that nothing has changed. However as any fan ofMost game critics write off any new Dynasty Warriors games as repetitive and boring and claim that nothing has changed. However as any fan of the series can tell you Dynasty Warriors 7 is a huge step forward, and in my opinion is the best Dynasty game yet.
    The addition of a whole new faction, the Jin, allows the story to cover a greater time line than ever before. It also leads to the addition of a whole swathe of new characters.
    Characters no longer feel like clones of each other, as was sadly the case in Dynasty Warriors 6, and the addition of conquest mode is great.
    If you like Dynasty Warriors games this is a must buy, but even if you don't really like the series or have gotten bored of it i encourage you to check it out.

    Having grown up on the Dynasty Warriors series I must admit it is my guilty little pleasure. However, when Dynasty Warriors 6 was released IHaving grown up on the Dynasty Warriors series I must admit it is my guilty little pleasure. However, when Dynasty Warriors 6 was released I was completely devastated at the horrendous monstrosity I had put into my Playstation. The 6th iteration was riddled with many problems including characters with shared movesets, a cut in the overall playable cast, and out of 40 playable characters present only 14 were playable in story mode. Thankfully, Dynasty Warriors 7 remedied everything wrong with the previous installment. Now, with the inclusion of EX moves characters are no longer clones. Adding to that, every character can equip not one, but two weapons and switch between them in battle. The story mode is also expanded from a basic 5 to 8 levels of the same battles for different characters to an actual heart wrenching drama engulfing your entire kingdom of choice. With the character count they've jumped from 40 to 62 with the return of all cut characters except Pang De and Zuo Ci. Furthermore, of those 62 characters ten of them are for an entirely new kingdom the Jin. While Jin is not new to the history of Three Kingdoms this is the very first time players will ever get to play to the actual end of the Three Kingdoms story. After story mode comes conquest mode where players can partake of mission battles to unlock more characters, weapons, and raises states. This mode incorporates the timeless Co-op mode. Moreover, it finally adds a the much coveted Co-op mode. Graphically, I was in awe of what I saw on my TV and felt almost immersed within ancient China. And the music? Well, it's just as good as it ever was and adds a real sense of battle to the game. Overall, I must say I'm very satisfied with Dynasty Warriors 7 and have gained renewed faith in Koei Tecmo. The only thing I ask for is the later release of an Empires and Xtreme Legends, then my Dynasty Warriors 7 experience with be complete. Expand

After the 6th I was rather unsure if this was gonna be good, since the previous game was a big letdown and I didn't play that much (but DW6 empires wasn't actually bad). Luckily, I was wrong: this game improves everything from the previous game(s). But also downgrades something. First off, the roster has improved and most of the old characters returned to their original fighting style (Zhou Tai and his katana, Zhang He and his claws, Zhen Ji and her flute, and some others), while others got a better change and some just got the same style but improved. The roster itself is also improved in numbers, having 62 characters to choose, included some old characters that got removed in the previous game....but it still has one issue that didn't get fully fixed. In the previous game, most of the characters had the same style, which is why the game was hated for; in here, we have about 35+ different weapons that can be switch in order to create a more customized character. This would mean that they're basically the same, but luckily the EX skills (which are unique for each officer and they can be used ONLY on their original weapon), and their musou (2 for each character, but some are very similar) make them very different and, at least to me, I hardly felt they were similar, but they aren't as unique as the previous games (like the 5th or 4th). Still an upgrade from the 6th. The second reason why this game is good is the extremely good and engaging story, which is a huge step forward in comparison to the previous games (at least for me). Infact, one big issue of these games were, somehow, the story and the characters, because I hardly wanted to play them: they were uninteresting and basically had no plot arch whatsoever and basically you were using an avatar that sometimes you wouldn't get the connection, and some story parts weren't just as enganging as others while some parts were happening off screen . In here, the story is well developed, the characters have character development, a lot of situation happens and are explained and follow more into the real story of the three kingdoms. Story mode is definitely an upgrade in here and I enjoyed them all..maybe the only downgrade here is that you won't choose the character to use in battle and you won't play all of them in story mode, making you play conquest mode in order to unlock them. And conquest mode, which is a sort of "dumbed down" version of the empires game...is actually boring. The only good things of the conquest mode is that you can play in co-op with a friend or online, since there's no co-op in story mode and free mode, and the fact that you can unlock most of the stuff in the game (weapons, characters, mounts, pets, bonds, etc). It's definitely another big thing in here but a lot of these missions are the same and you'll just do them for unlocking stuff or play in co-op. A character creator would have been a good idea for this mode because conquest mode seemed made for avatars and such (can visit cities, talk to the officers in order to increase bonds), and since you must use one of your officers, the bond with the officer you're currently won't "obviously" upgrade, which can be a bit annoying. And would have been better also for the online. Anyhow, this game remains a good one, maybe it's not the best of the series, maybe some will still prefer the old ones, but as a game itself it's a lot of fun, has a lot of content (will take days to unlock everything and do everything), and it's kinda harmless as an action game (it's repetitive but really can't blame for that). Definitely a must try. Expand
