OMG! this game is one of the WORST dynasty warriors games ever. Most stuff does not even make sense. Like when you have to develop a city or whatever jazz you get like 10 blocks to build something on. but there are like 100 blocks to build something on that you are not allowed to use! The tutorial stinks so bad. You have to develop a city so it has 1000 income and 16,000 food, (that's realistic (not)), well you don't have enough spaces. You only get 10 spaces. I even had 3 graneries/mints with markets and farms and it still did not work. This is a waste of a week's worth of gamefly.
I liked the game alot. it was fun to play but it was kinda lackin in substance after the tutorials and first 5 minutes of the game. overall it was great but needed a little more structure to the storyline.

This is the best one of the whole series. The graphics are very good and the AI is a little more respectable. The only problem I have with the AI is that it will substitute dogged tenacity for actual strategy. Playing Lie Bei in Wan with all of his great generals, you can simply withstand Cao Cao for a few years until he beats himself to death like waves crashing into a rock. All to spite himself by leaving him vulnerable against other foes.
There is also one exploit that should be removed. A general with the "Capture" trait can easily take over the whole map.
Also, this series isn't based off of Dynasty Warriors, it is the other way around.
