Growing up with all of the Dynasty Warrior games on PS2, this game was sad in comparison. The gameplay is too jumpy, and the characters have lost their unique identities. Not being able to custom create characters and guard units was a major let down, as well.

I love dynasty warriors. I have played since dynasty warriors 2 and I played the Samurai Warriors series too. This game was a giant step backwards in terms of gameplay. It wasn't nearly as fun as it use to be. In addition, they took out the feature to make your own warrior. The only positive I took away from this addition was a noted improvement in story telling.
I miss some of the old things done in DW series like, identifying the troops your fighting (sergeant, Lt, Private etc) Also troop morale, I miss that. As well as gate captains. Now I have to say the new graphics and effects are pretty amazing. I don't like how your unable to charge your Special attack anymore, that took some of the dazzle away. I feel that they should have put more into the combo mapping, lacked a little. Overall the plus side is hours of fighting and challenging fights between the officers and the player character choice. If you have a friend to play w/ or alone. Give this a try.
