Fun if you have a friend to play with.
1 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've probably spent more hours on this game and this series than a human being should have. I've played the series since Dynasty Warriors 2 came out for the PS2 and it had its ups and down.

This is basically a mindless hack and slash. It's kind of fun to complete the actual objectives like Zhuge Liangs prayer for wind at the battle of Chi Bi but all of it is not necessary. As soon as you start cutting down officers you'll be turning the tide of battle in no time. Getting officers better weapons is a bit of a challenge but not much. And once you do get them you have a better chance of surviving chaos mode and the later levels of hard mode.

The English voice actors will never get better in this series and will always be hysterically bad. Pronunciations of Wei's Supreme Ruler Cao Cao and his son Cao Pi will never get old. And in this one there are 3 different types of bases. Defense, Supply, and Attack. And each time you get into these you'll hear some knucklehead speak up and try to sound as if he isn't intimidated by your assault. These scenarios generally end up with you kicking said persons ass even before he finishes his sentence. You'll also hear hilarious battle cries like "We can win this!" and "Now is the time to attack!". You'll mostly hear these when the commander of the enemy army who is all alone being kicked around the battlefield by you and your allied officers.

My biggest complaint about the series is the lack of improvement. Sure, characters and levels do change. And that's not bad, unless it's DW6. Which dramatically changed basically all the characters for the worse. But Dynasty Warriors 3 had a create an officer feature. They have since taken that out. That could have been something good. Something else to improve on and have fun with. But nope, it was thrown out. I'd like to see Koei put that back in future installments and run with it.

Anyway, like I said not much substance to this game. Just a mindless hack and slash. I find it better having a friend to play with. Might be hard finding one of those unless that friend happens to be a huge fan of this very average series.
