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?
Summary: i now have this game for 3 years now. i am a big fan of the Dynasty Warriors saga and waiting for the eight game to come out. Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires is really good and i saw reviews that it wasn't all that swell. to me 5 empires is really good but i don't like how they keep on changing the scenery of the different regions. the dynasty warriors games are not for everyone but many people enjoy these tactical games with swords and stuff. if i'm a fan so should you.
