May 18, 2011Possibly 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.
Apr 13, 2011Until Koei can refine the long game, Dynasty Warriors will continue to slip from relevance, in much the same way as Xiahou Dun's good eye, or Sun Quan's colourful beard, have done before it.
May 25, 2011You know it's not a masterpiece, but you're after a bit of escapist fun - nothing less, but nothing more.
Apr 15, 2011That it's a slight improvement over the last is not a surprise though, and for those of us not in love with the series it's just another disappointingly average action game.
May 11, 2011Another Dynasty Warriors episode doesn't renews the old gameplay of this brand. Good only for the old Dynasty Warriors fanbase, the other player should stay away from this repetitive and boring game.
Apr 28, 2011Granted, even with a friend in tow, the missions all feel the same--which rings true of DW7 as a whole. [June 2011, p.83]
Apr 6, 2011The Dynasty Warriors franchise is a beast of inveterate laziness. The gameplay is tired and, while the story and characters could be intriguing, the presentation is too bland and wonky to draw in gamers who are new to the series.

Mar 7, 2019How do the critics give this game a worse score than Dynasty Warriors 9. This game is the best game in the series in my opinion. 8 and 5How do the critics give this game a worse score than Dynasty Warriors 9. This game is the best game in the series in my opinion. 8 and 5 certainly have better gameplay, but this games story is the best telling of Three Kingdoms period in any medium. The game does an excellent job of making it so as you are playing as a specific campaign it makes you hate the other two kingdoms while feeling a strong attachment to the kingdom you're playing as. I don't know how it does this, but I must applaud them for doing that. I was initially disappointing that it was a kingdom selection instead of a character selection, but after seeing what this had to to offer, it was wonderful. The music isn't the best in the series, but it was the most emotional, everything just worked so well with the story. My only complaint is that there wasn't enough content, which is cray considering this game has more than a 100 hours worth of content. It's rare I normally hate grinding in Dynasty Warriors, but I love how this game made it so that there is so much crap to unlock, but it constantly rewards you making it feel like a very rewarding experience. You should get this game you won't regret it.
If I were order all the Dynasty Warriors games I'd rank them like this.
9. Dynasty Warriors 9 - absolutely awful
8. Dynasty Warriors - just a mediocre fighting game.
7. Dynasty Warriors 2 - my problem with this is that you move using the D-Pad
6. Dynasty Warriors 6 - Cut way to much content from 5, renbu system isn't terrible just not good.
3. 3/4/8 - it's so hard to rank these because they are all so good.
2. Dynasty Warriors 5 - My first Dynasty Warriors so probably some bias.
1. Dynasty Warriors 7 - see the review above.… Expand

While theI've been playing the Dynasty Warriors series since it began and I can say without reservation that this is the best one to date. While the story is basically the same (as it should be since it is based on historical fiction), they have actually made it more accurate to the source material, have an easier to follow story mode (which is great for those not as familiar with the story), and all of the names are pronounced correctly which is a first:) The game play is has been changed slightly in that Musou moves are now one shot mega-blows instead of a meter that drains. A cool and well implemented change. For those who didn't like DW6 (I actually really liked it), this goes back to of the look of DW5 in so much as the style. However, the graphics are fantastic and they, from my estimation, have crammed more enemies on screen than any other DW game to date. If you have even a vague interest in Dynasty Warriors or beat-em-ups in general, this is a phenomenal purchase. There is a veritable ton of content and over 60 characters. I know I'll be playing this one for months.… Expand
Apr 13, 2011I have been playing Dynasty Warriors since its first release and I have no doubt in my mind that this is the best DW game to date. TheI have been playing Dynasty Warriors since its first release and I have no doubt in my mind that this is the best DW game to date. The graphics are excellent and by that i mean about 9/10 better graphics than the original games and trust me i have had every single game including the Extreme legends titles and the Empires titles. The gamplay is an old original fighting system used in the earlier games, and its great and i easy to get used to. As you probably know it is a hack/slash game. As for the story, it is almost the same but this time instead of there being the three kingdoms (Wei, Wu, Shu) there is a new faction called "Jin" making every campaign end in a new way which is an interesting and risky way of making a new game but it worked well adding new characters and bringing back some old Favorites. But there is also another new feature that was used in Dynasty Warriors Strike force, where you can have 2 weapons at once and you can also change those weapons any time you want in the pause menu. But it also feels awkward playing as Lu Bu and using a sword. Since we are in that category each character has there own special move (and no its not the musou move) for example if you hit X,X then Y with Lu Bu and you keep hitting Y he will preform A move where he grabs his opponent and slams them to the ground. So all together i thought this was a great game.… Expand

1) Incredibly fun
2) Many different weapon variety's
3) Loads of characters
5) Riding horses into battle! Cons:
1) If your new to Dynasty Warriors (like me) its hard to grasp the full story and each character story
2) The optional scholar questions which give you money seem to be only for the hardcore fans
3) Its under appreciated by critics
Would of give it more but with being new to the franchise you get basically no explanation to the different kingdoms and why they fighting. Took me a few battles to find out who the "good guy" kingdom were.… Expand

Jul 9, 2013Personally I have no problem with the franchise since I'm a Chinese and I love the romance of three kingdoms since I was a child and I wouldPersonally I have no problem with the franchise since I'm a Chinese and I love the romance of three kingdoms since I was a child and I would like more western people to embrace the goodness of the series( it's like Game of throne Chinese version with no nudities). Dynasty warriors 7 did offer that without the doubt, the massive character roster and the Ex abilities made the game a lot more fun to play and did made each characters unique, this game certainly made its amend to the last dynasty warrior (the one removed combo attack). HOWEVER the Xbox 360 version just have so many problems than the others platforms. First off all, I don't understand why you can't adjust the brightness of the game, I have tried everything on my TV to make the game brightest as possible but still I have to suffer most of the game in complete darkness( I wish I can upload a picture of this, seriously you can't see ANYTHING there are frame rate issues with the Xbox version sometimes you can't chain your combos properly in a huge fight and I understand Xbox is not PC you can't expect a 7 year old hardware to run perfectly I just wish they would polish it better. The texture of the most place is just ugly and looked 720p ish just rescaled from it probably, this game was released in 2011 for god sake). My last problem with the game is how they changed my favourite character's weapon for no apparent reason. Guan Yu(关羽)'s Moon Blade and Zhao Yun (赵云)'s Dragon spear is not in this version which was replaced by spike and normal spear, and I'm talking about a whole 2 sections of the weapons just removed from the game which made me infuriating because I know these 2 sections are in the both ps3 versions (legend edition and the regular) and the pc version. And they are not in the weapon dlc neither so I can't even pay to get the stuff supposedly in the game. In the end dynasty warrior 7 did made its amend to the previous game but the xbox version just not worth your time, money and effort unless you are willing to forgive its ugly textures and frame rate issues. If you are like me who just love the franchise and lore behind it, I urge you to play this game on the ps3 version( get the legend edition with extra characters+ all the weapons and legend mode) or the pc version(really good port)… Expand
