Summary: I bought this game when it first came out several months ago...bad mistake. I should've waited until dynasty warriors 4 came out. To start off, I have bought a PS2 relatively late in terms with other gamers so I have never played dynasty warriors before. However, I have previewed it at a local store and loved the story, characters, adrenaline pumping one vs. 200 enemies at once hack and slash.
Summary: Sure, this is an extended version of the fun game, Dynasty Warriors 3, but it is really nothing special. So it has musou mode for non-aligned characters, nothing special, since you can basically play the non-aligned side in the free mode in DW3 anyway, you just get an extra scene at the end like with the other kingdoms...really not worth [$$$] if you already have the DW3 original. And the weapons are not necessary either; you're already overpowered at your third weapon.
Summary: This game is going to be released on jan 17, 2003, but somehow this game store near my place had this today. I bought this paying extra 5 dollars..and.. let me tell u this.. the guy who wrote review "southerndudeman (see more about me) from Madison, WI United States" obviously did not have this game to write review with. All he did was copying stuff from dynasty warrior 3 fan sites..and guess what? Here is the correct information.. 1. Yes.. there are new levels..
