More Frustration Than Fun! : (

Summary: I had to stop playing this game after a few hours because it just plain sucks! When you start Empire Mode, you will NOT get any of the weapons/items you earned previously from Free Mode like the other DW games. So if you're gonna have a problem with that, then take my advice and DON'T buy this game!
Summary: Koei has outdone themselves with this classic. The legends and myths surrounding the fall of the Han dynasty in second century China are entirely enchanting and Koei has brought to life and even now made into a more historically accurate strategy and conquest videogame. I don't think it defeats the purpose that the player has the capacity to lay waste to entire armies and opponents because, being a hack-n-slash, the game adds a sort of vintage "kung-fu feature film"...
Another Great Entry to the Dynasty Warriors Series

Summary: Dynasty Warriors is one of my favorite franchises playing it all the way since Dynasty Warriors 4. The Empires spin-offs have always been better in my opinion, and this game is no exception. For the graphics, there is nothing special about them. The character models are decent for an early 360 game, but everything else is lacking. The draw distance is especially a problem since you can't see any soldiers that are only a few feet away from you.
Summary: Now, let me be clear that this game isn't bad. It's actually a pretty good timekiller and with a friend, this game can be a real blast. However, this game does suffer some serious faults. First of all, there's not really any campaign to go through. You've basically got this map of China where you have to dominate the other factions in the area. Sounds fun enough, right? It is to some Now, let me be clear that this game isn't bad.
Summary: It's a good game, and I really liked it when I was a kid But when I get older, I found out that this game is basically forcing us to do something over and over again It feels good to use the character to keep winning..but it's too much repetition...
Summary: I bought this game for the fight and war, but it seems that the objectivity of the game is mostly political rather than warfare. One can choose to battle but for the most part, it can be skipped. There are certain cards (literally) to be played that'll make the armies larger or stronger, or give money to the poor and hungry. It's mostly about building your armies and getting the strength of the people rather than the hack-n-slash I can get from Lord of the Rings.
