Long time DW fan: don't waste your money.

Summary: I've had six DW games since I started playing them way back about 8 years ago. This is probably the worst. Of course, because it's empires, it has no musou mode, which is the best part of DW. Because of that, you can't really progress characters nearly as much, such as getting awesome weapons and things. Also, the 'strategy' of course isn't really strategy. You just pick which battles to fight.
Summary: This game sucks! I played dynasty warriors 4 and it was good. So i had enough money and decided to get this game. Worst mistake of my life! It is the same exact thing. The only difference is the whole strategy thing. That's the only good thing about this game. And even that sucks. It's completely repetitive, and when you fight, all the AI does is stand there looking dumb. You could stand in front of a group of them and they just stare.
Conclusion: I agree with Jon, the graphics are the kind you would expect on an xbox, even in cutscenes, the peoples mouthes dont move when they talk. the gameplay is repetitive and slow. the AI is awful, most of the soldiors simply stand around whilst you attack them from behind.
Conclusion: This is a poor game at best, the graphics look like a ok XBOX game but a no where near good enough for a XBOX 360! Ok for about 5-10 minutes of button bashing then you will want to send it back.
Summary: This game is awful. They attempted to make it both a fighting game and a strategy game and completely failed at both. I was tired of it in about ten minutes. No wonder the price dropped so fast on this one. It bites.
