I had been looking forward to playing this game for a while and wasn't let down when I got it. The game plays very similiar to Dynasty Warriors in setup and most of the button scheme. It is a bit slower in movements and attacks, however there is a notch more of violence in this game. It lacks game modes, but the story mode is interesting. A feautre I really enjoyed is the ability to roll towards/away from an enemy. Also you can pickup the weapon of the enemy you just killed (swords, spears etc) and either wield it and/or throw it. Overall this game mostly met my expectations to it.
