Dynasty Warriors 5: Xtreme Legends PS2 Review

Console Obsession
31 May 2010
  • Excerpt: There has been that many different versions of Dynasty Warriors released that if the end of the world came tomorrow Koei could die with the solace that plenty of Dynasty Warriors titles have been developed and sold. If ever there was a cash cow to point the finger at, then Dynasty Warriors would be first in line, although complaining about the lack of effort is out of the question…sometimes.

  • Excerpt: The first thing you’ll notice about Dynasty Warriors 5: Xtreme Legends is that there are far more options available on the menu screen than have appeared in any of the previous forty million titles in the series. From the new Destiny Mode to the expanded Challenge Mode, there is certainly a lot more to do this time around.

[Mini-Review] Dynasty Warriors 5 Xtreme Legends

TotalPlayStation.com
18 November 2005
  • Conclusion: Seeing as this is an add-on, it's a little much to expect it to have the kind of extra content that a full game would have, but what's here is certainly worth the $30 -- provided you haven't gotten tired of the series yet.

Dynasty Warriors 5: Xtreme Legends Review

GameSpot
4 November 2005
  • Summary: Xtreme Legends is the archetypal Dynasty Warriors expansion pack, adding more ways to experience the same tired gameplay.
  • Pros: Destiny mode is a fine addition to the formula, More items, more power-ups, more challenges
  • Cons: Xtreme mode and legend mode are merely serviceable distractions, and not altogether engaging, Gameplay is still stuck in the same monotonous rut, As an expansion, it's really only worthwhile to those who already own Dynasty Warriors 5 proper, AI is just as goofy as ever, and it's even more noticeable in the destiny mode

Dynasty Warriors 5: Xtreme Legends

Gamecell

  • Conclusion: Dynasty Warriors 5: Xtreme Legends accomplishes set genre requirements with the air of assurance established throughout its long-running history, but it creates no new elements or even attempts to convincingly reinvent the old. It’s a by-the-numbers experience, and that number is 5. Xtreme Legends is yet another example of an entertainment franchise resting on its laurels and being far too reliant on past achievements.
  • Pros: Well crafted and faithful to the overall series, Graphically decent and offers a strong line-up of playable and created characters, Destiny Mode and co-op Xtreme Mode are both solid additions, Multiple game modes (including a 2-player co-op) guarantee prolonged longevity to the dedicated
  • Cons: The overly simplistic fight controls quickly descend into “rinse and repeat” boredom, and combo moves and Musou attacks are never fulfilling enough to promote addiction, Lack of directional control on the game camera and zero environmental interaction casts the game as a rather flat, singular-paced and one-dimensional experience

  • Excerpt: Commençons par faire un petit calcul sympathique. D'après vous, et après cinq épisodes principaux associés à des compléments du nom d'Extreme Legends, d'Empires ou encore de Tactics, combien la série Dynasty Warriors a t-elle brasséede morts depuis sa création ? Si l'on effectue une estimation générale au niveau de chaque épisode, on doit approcher lestement les trente ou quarante mille victimes. Un score honorable, et encore inégalé dans le vaste monde du jeu vidéo.

Dynasty Warriors 5 Xtreme Legends

Planet-eGamers
18 April 2007
  • Summary: Dynasty Warriors 5 Xtreme Legends est un bon jeu de combats... titanesques. Les ennemis sont innombrables et l'écran est surchargé d'alliers. Les batailles sont épiques et les morts se comptent avec une calculatrice scientifique, tellement ils sont nombreux. Certes, les graphismes ne sont pas les plus beaux sur PS2, mais le jeu ne souffre d'aucun ralentissement quand les ennemis vous attaquent à plusieurs (et ils le font souvent les lâches...).
