Summary: First of all I've only played a single dynasty warriors game in my life prior to this which was Dynasty Warriors Advance for the gameboy advance so I can't really compare it to the others in the series. The reason I picked this up was because I've read that it was the defining game in the series and improves upon 2 and 3 in every way. I've put about 8 hours into it so far and I must say..
Summary: Xtreme legends is like the orignial version of the game but this time, your the villian. You can play Lu Bu, Dong Zhuo, Diao Chan, and many more. This game I could play over and over again and not get tired of playing it. This is one of those games where you just want to play it to have fun even though you beat it like ten times with every person possible.
Summary: Allright, if you loved Dynasty Warriors 3, then you must buy this upgrade. This is an awesome extension. There are new characters that were not in the original version, and you can play the mousou of Lu Bu, Dio Chan and Dong Zhou. There are other players that you can play mousou with, but those are the most interesting. The boards are more difficult, plus you can obtain a fifth level weapon for each and every player.
Summary: Once you actually get it, it seems like just an add-on to DW3. But it is not an add-on. The officers in free mode kick ... The mosou mode people are all pretty bad excepting Lu Bu. The four best officers in the game are; Fu Xi, Zhou You,Lu Bu, and Sun Ce. If you do not buy any other game this year ... buy this.
Summary: I absolutly love this game. It is the best game ever made. If I could only have one game, I would want this one. There are so meny great things about this game. For one thing, the graphics are great and the realizum is outstanding. I love the weapons you can resive. The only real problem with the game is that it can get a little to hard at some points and the game's graphics get sorta slow for some reson. but over all, I feel that this game is why I even play games.
