Yes, the game is fun... It's traditional DW hack and slash! The story more is none existent though, but this review is just to let people know that this game says it can be multiplayer, which it is, but not how anyone wanted it to be. You can't have the second player join the games until you luck out and have a random character join you. My bud and I went through the trouble of editing characters that we wanted to play as, but never even had the chance! Random characters join your army and once they do, the second player can utilize said character. I went through a fifth of the game (one section of the game) without recruiting anyone... it wasn't fun switching the controller with someone.
This game was way too involved. So much detail to stuff that does not even matter. I enjoyed Bladestorm, which is another offering from the team of KOEI and Omega, the same guys who made this game. Once past all the junk, gameplay was similar to Bladestorm. But it took so long to figure it out I was bored by the time I got there.
The previous Dynasty Warriors were amazing to say the least. The story line in this one (in my opinion) is weak. It's too back and forth, back and forth. I want a game that I can just sit down and play all day with an eventfull story. I felt cheated and disappointed.
