In the usual DW Tradition another Smash hit. DW5: XL is packed with content, challenges, and features. This game has an excellent Replay value with additional game play modes. The Game Features an Edit mode where you can create you own Warrior, Or using Destiny Mode you can Create a Warrior as a Private in one of the General's armies. Make you way from the bottom to the top with unique Tactics, Combat Skills, or Brute Force. Xtreme Mode features battling through brief Storylines gaining power-ups on the field to get stronger and keep alive. As with most of the series there is a Challenge Mode to keep you generals in check. The only thing the keeps me from giving a 10 to this game is, Eye Candy. There have not been many drastic improvements to the graphics. There is also a limit as to how much can be rendered on the screen at any time. If you are a fan of the Dynasty Warrior Series then this is a must rent, everyone else give it a try.

Dynasty Warriors 5 is a definite improvement over DW 4. In this game you have to play as the character you design. You can't play as the main characters, but that's only on destiny mode. Theirs also x-treme mode and challenge mode, which you can play as the main characters. The story is depended on how you play the game. You get promoted through the ranks, obviously starting from private. The gameplay is pretty much the same except for a few things. You can buy upgrades for your character from getting points for doing your duty during battle. The graphics are exactly the same as the last one. Their is no improvement graphic wise. The graphics aren't bad though, they look pretty good. Overall the game is very good and is worth the rent.

No Versus Mode?

Dynasty Warriors Xtreme Legends is a great addition to the Dynasty Warriors scene, especially in edit mode, where you can create your own officer, the only thing i would like is that there is a 2 player versus mode. The only part where you can use two players at once is in legend mode, where you cooperate to complete missions on the Shu, Wu, and Wei sides. Anyways, if you do rent this game, i suggest you play destiny mode, and complete it, serving the lord whose weapon you want, and at the end, they become and officer of your own with high skills.
