Summary: I don't like the way story mod is set up. Instead of playing one character you play Wu, Shu, Wei... which gives you a new character every battle (and not all the characters). You can choose one character in conquest mode but the battles are not tailored to that character and it gets boring after some game play then, you choose a new character and play the same battles.
Summary: "The product arrived one day earlier than the estimated time and the game worked just fine. Just like the item described - It is Brand New & Sealed BUT not region free. My DW7 disc (US) can not remix with this DW7-XL I bought. And I brought it to the local Gamestop and they said this is a "region 2" disc.
A more coherent story, but less interesting to me than previous games

Summary: I have played every main Dynasty Warriors title (but not the XL or Empires versions) since DW3, as well Samurai Warriors 2 and Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes. I loved them all-- even the much-derided DW6-- and spent dozens of hours on each of them over the years. I can't quite muster the same enthusiasm for DW7. Having just completed the Wei Story Mode, I'm not really feeling that same pull I experience in previous games to start again.
Summary: Koei is one of my favorite companies because while their games are never my favorites, they always stay true to the essence of previous games in the series so the fans aren't too disappointed. This game is no exception, if you have Dynasty Warriors 7 and you like it, this is a worthwhile add-on. If you don't like Dynasty Warriors, this game isn't going to change your mind either.
Summary: I love dynasty warriors and this is one of the best, the reason i downgraded it was due to the fact that the voices on the game are not English, i love the Japanese language, don't get me wrong, but you can't make an exact character as you want if you do not understand the language, if this had a "change language" option in this, id of rated it 5* without blinking
Summary: i love Dynasty Warriors but it feels like something is missing compared to the rest of them, I don't mind it being in japanese but it's still a good game and worth buying if you love Dynasty Warriors
Summary: Bought this as I have owned and played all the previous games. I like them and like this one too. Its much the same with not much change from the other releases which in some ways is good and also bad. The gameplay is still good but its to easy to finish in some of the missions, where as some of them are then too hard.
Summary: I personaly liked this game but i didn't think it was the best dynasty warriors game made yet, a reason i say i didn't enjoy it as much as the others is simply because during story mode which used to be known as Musou mode, you cannot choose which character you wanted to be, like you was able to on the older dynasty warriors, and that for me was amajor let down because i found it quite annoying being one person the one battle and then a different person the next, ive...
