insteead of building on what made the first one great they threw it all away in favor of starting all over from scratch and copying dynasty warriors bonehead move i cringe in terror of every one copying them and there never ever being a good sequel ever again because of this thanks allot!
they ripped off their own game series. worst game ever. the lack of creativity & the bad timing have taken the joy out of it being a game and turned it into an insult to gamers & gamemakers all around. i hate this game with a passion & hope the original designer is stuck in a room playing this game, in total agony from the anger & frustration of playing this soul sucking waste of energy & time.
Sadly I can not give you a review after beating the game in fact I can only give a review off of two levels due to broken gameplay. Honestly the 1st level of the second character was that bad. Archers were always a problem in the dynasty warriors series but they could be dealt with these can not. You have a swarm of archers firing on you that if you try to fight will take half of your health leaving you no choice but to run past and then face another swarm of archers and another after that and then you have those flying ranged fighters which to fight you must sacrifice your mobility which is the only thing that kept you alive fighting the normal archers and then get juggled when they hit you in mid air until your health runs dry. Or you can block and sit there for over an hour waiting for the quarter second you have to try to attack (provided they dont flank and ai as bad as this there actually is that possiblity) only to be hit a single time and knocked down. Oh did I mention that any of those 50 arrows flying at you will knock you to the ground. Now I love a challengin game but this is not challenging. Challenging implies that while you may have to master all of the games skills or respawn time after time it actually is possible but with this you can't even dodge the arrows while fighting as the only way you can actually move fast enough to dodge is if you run straight ahead and not roll negating any possibility of fighting back.
