Summary: Everyone has his or her own guilty pleasure. For the longest time, my guilty pleasure was Dynasty Warriors – a series that relived feudal Chinese history a thousand dead bodies at a time. With the pleasure, there's also the guilt of playing a series that hasn't switched button-mashing tactics since its PS2 days. Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires tries to change all of that by adding an extra dash of strategy into the typical action mix.
Pros: More strategy than before, Create-An-Officer Mode, Swimming
Cons: Nothing substantially new, Characters lose context in open world, Shallow strategy, Repetitive fighting in small areas
