Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: As each new game is usually so similar to the last, we’re running out of things to say for Koei’s incessant, but always enjoyable Dynasty Warriors series. It has to be said that stupid jokes of men with funny names and beards have long since become exhausted. At least the Empire games are a little different to usual.

  • Excerpt: Developer – Koei/Omega Force Publisher - Koei Features 1-2 Players – Offline HDTV 720p Although Koei have been doing the Dynasty Warriors series for years, Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires for the Xbox 360 is their fifth game in the series that has spanned the PS2, Xbox and PSP. For those that have played any of the previous games in the past this most recent release will seem very familiar and even looks the same too.

  • Excerpt: Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires, an introduction. The Dynasty Warriors series has always been very popular with action game fans. Set in Ancient China the Dynasty Warriors games, which are based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel, are essentially hack 'n' slash mass combat action games. Dynasty Warrior 5: Empires  adds a whole lot of strategy to the basic Dynasty Warriors game play and it's an addition that makes it the best Dynasty Warriors game to date.

Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires

Xbox Evolved
15 February 2007
  • Summary: A good game if you ignore the disappointing graphics, this game could possibly be worth the $40.00 that it is selling for. Personally, I say it's a pretty good candidate for rental. If anything, the game is a sure buy for those Dynasty Warriors fans out there who may not have a PlayStation 2, would rather have the 360 Achievements, or would like to play the game at a better resolution. Still for the rest of us, the game really only warrants a rental.
  • Pros: Another good DW game, top of the hack and slash market, and good BGM
  • Cons: Graphics don't take advantage of Xbox 360's power, cheesy dialogue, repetition, repetion, repetition

Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires (Xbox360)

  • Excerpt: Dynasty Warriors is a grand old series, forming one of Koei’s core intellectual properties, but the question we must always ask is whether this game stacks up against its competitors and contemporaries. It’s a fairly easy question to answer though: what competitors? It seems to me a genre that is occupied by one series only, Dynasty Warriors.

Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires

Gamecell
19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Needless to say, I was totally overwhelmed by all the options and events happening in the game – it came as a total shock because I was expecting a very basic action game. My review copy didn’t come with a manual, but I have read elsewhere that the manual itself doesn’t really explain the game very well, so you’re left to fend and work it out for yourself.
  • Pros: Loads of characters on-screen, Many characters with different abilities and weaponry, The game is big and will take a long time to play through
  • Cons: Very steep learning curve as there is no tutorial, Poorly laid out and explained menu system, Nothing enhanced from the PS2 version
