No 2 player for Story mode really killed it for me. I was really looking forward to playing this with my son, but now one of us has to blitz through the story mode in easy mode to unlock the players we want to play. Half the fun is leveling up the generals, and doing that alone while the 2nd player watches is lame.
I am very glad I rented this and not purchased it and been stuck with a lemon of a game. If Koei reads this please put out a patch that allows 2 player story mode.
This game is a polished up version of every other Dynasty Warriors game. The story mode doesn't allow you to pick your characters at all, only your clan, and while playing, I felt like I'd played the game 4 or 5 times before. Within 20 minutes of receiving the game, it was already back in my mailbox. If you're expecting anything different from the previous games, you'll be disappointed (Like I am). But if you've never played any of the previous games in the series, you'd probably love it.
