Another Great Entry to the Dynasty Warriors Series
12 May 2014
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: 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.
Summary: ...the ideas in DW, DW:XL and DW:E, I think that the series would really have some lifeblood into it. As it is, DW5:E is pretty fun, although the tedium factor can be high. First, the good. I've always liked the idea of seeting up your own empire, rather than playing through the incredibly set pieces offered in both DW5 and DW5:XL.
Summary: Like the title says, "What do you expect?". You pick a country and go from one battlefield to another slaughtering the hordes of soldiers and the occasional general. In between the battlefields you have some "diplomacy" to handle. Basically you do some even MORE boring stuff than wading through the idiotic sea of soldiers. If you've played one of these games in the series, you've played them all.
Summary: I bought another version of dynasty warriors about a year ago and I hated it. I think it is a preference for a different kind of game play since when I bought this version for my boyfriend he loved it. He is much more talented at video games than I am anyhow. The graphics and music is great and other than the fact that it is a little too entertaining for boyfriends, I would recommend it.

Summary: Every year, I tell myself that I'm not going to buy that next Dynasty Warriors game, and every year I make a liar out of myself....and have a great time doing it. This time I really meant it, too. I've played the hell out of every DW title to arrive on the xbox and the game has always remained the same, fighting the same battles, leveling up the same generals, unlocking the same items, and so on. Great fun was had, but one can only take so much.
