Now I really like this game. If you have played the other games in the Dynasty Warriors series, this is the same type of action.

So if you liked DW before, you will like this version. If you didn't like DW before then leave DW5 for the 360 on the shelf.

The graphics are pretty solid. Especially the environments. There are a heck of a lot of Generals with different weapons and upgrades for you to try.

I'm not sure how far the game goes, but I am about to take over the whole territory. I'm assuming that the game goes beyond that since I haven't unlocked 80% of the level based acheivements.

There sure is not a lot of challenge to the normal skill level. I recommend cranking it up to hard so that you actually stand a chance of being defeated. Also train up your generals quickly and upgrade your weapon smiths if you want to win. It's money well spent.

Well first of all i had fun playing this but it does get old fast. This game is pretty much a hack-and-slash type of game. You go through each level tapping X 100 times and it gets old after around 3 hours of playing. Yes their are combos like X X X X Y but still hack-and-slash. Their are alot of people you can play as anywhere from a girl with a hoop to a guy with bear claws. The levels get old too. Their are 25 levels in the game and if you like gamerscore you will be playing them 5 or 6 times...

On the positive
~The game has a wide variety of things you can do in menus and what not
~Alot of characters
~Anyone can pick this game up and play it

On the negative
~Voice acting is VERY bad
~Same stuff over and over again
~Don't kick into the 360s power and graphics much...

I give it a...6..out of 10

Its a good game. But they added very little, the only thing they added was give your officers orders. Besides that its like every other Dynasty Warriors.(VERY REPETITIVE)
