I was expecting this to be a let down like the recent Dynasty Warriors 6 I played. Yet it was not the game was great its somewhat set up like DW, but you control whole squads and as your rank up you unlock alot of other things from sword soldiers all the way to ninja assassins. The story itself is pretty good too. The only complaint I have is eventually it get repetative. Yet in your quest to unlock more things and view story events your kind of sucked in. I have spend countless hours on this game.
I would recommend it for someone who has decent amount of time on their hands.
