Summary: The Dynasty Warriors series has truly been a joy to play, I have been playing DW since DW2 - Ive been through all of the XL versions aswell. When DW5 was launched i snapped it up with open arms! Got it home, enjoyed it for about 5 days... then... got... bored...
Summary: To put my review into context I do not own this game, however I have been playing all versions fairly passionatly since Dynasty Warriors 3 since I fell in love with a demo I played which got me interested in the series in the first place.
