I started playing these games on the PS2, with the release of Dynasty Warriors 3. Since then, whenever a new one came out I would steal the copy from my local rental store and keep it for months. Truly, this game, along with the lot of them are utterly fantastic. It's fast paced action that just does not get old. I mean after playing it for an hour straight you get a bit tired and take a break but you can come back and mash your buttons at it for hours more.

It's redundant, violent, and seemingly pointless, which is great. But it also has a good story. And what keeps you hooked is the fact that each character, about 40 or so characters at that, has their own role in like 20 unique story lines. The fun part is unlocking characters, and in the process unlocking items and weapons to make yourself stronger.

As far as difficulty, you can set it at easy and complete the story mode in a few hours with ease. Also, if you're hardcore, like I am, you can flip on expert and all of a sudden each campaign takes like 2 hours and instead of 1 hit KOing 30 guys with one tap of the O button, you gotta pound em individually.

Great game, and I think 5 is the best in the series. Recommended for everyone.

Well, i like tis game for multiple reasons on a personal level i think it continue were the last one left off, but this game is pretty sweet, there are a few aspects i dont like, for one thing ive seen in all the dynasty warriors games they have this thing about a sticky camera, in other words you move and the camera doesnt, but the game itself, and its graphic designers need to be very well appreciated for such an awesome job.

This game I would recommend to anyone. The game has a great stroy line and also can prove to be a challenge which is fun. Also a wide range of characters to choose from. If you are playing it for the first time I recommend trying to unlock Lu Bu is the best character. The graphics are also great the game play is also two thumbs up. Anyone who likes sword, spear, or bows this is a game to get.
