Dynasty Warriors 7
The same Dynasty Warriors fans know and love
First and foremost, I am not going to be as biased as most fans are when they review this game. I've played from Dynasty Warriors 4 up to the latest installment for experience reference. Dynasty Warriors 7 was a great improvement from its predecessor and fixed many underlying issues many fans loathed. While Dynasty Warriors 7 improved on many aspects, it is still the same Dynasty Warriors. People may be fine with how the game is now, but it won't be pulling more of an audience how it is now. The story has been the same fundamental format based off the "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" and the characters added on don't shift the gameplay that much. The movesets were no longer cloned and the story wasn't restricted to a certain character. Other than offering more choices in terms of hacking and slashing through the masses, this game doesn't offer much more than it should. The inclusion of Conquest Mode gave players a bit more length to the game, but it's nothing more than a grind. Customization has been steady and hardcore fans will enjoy the options to choose from. The sound of blades slashing through a faceless soldier has no wow-factor to it, but the BGM still has it's rocking vibe if you're into that stuff. The graphics have been improved but still fall short of current day visuals. The cutscenes look nice, but some textures still remain muddy and painful to see. Overall, Dynasty Warriors 7 has a refreshing feel to it. I enjoyed it and know that any other Dynasty Warriors fan will find something to love about this game. However, the game still needs more improvements other than more characters and costumes, especially when all the developers have to work with is the same story with minor tweaks, same hack and slash, and same audience to cater to. Dynasty Warriors 8 looks promising and hopefully treads some new ground.
Dynasty Warriors 7 is great!
I bought this game here on Gamestop.com brand new and this game is awesome! I have Dynasty Warriors 3 for Xbox and I payed Dyansty Warriors 6 on PC. I love all the Dynasty Warriors games cause they are really challenging and stragetic when you have alot of obstacles. This game is great history of China and I recommend this game!
Finally back to a good DW.
I was addicted to DW3 when I was in High School and played it religiously with my friends. After each consecutive one was released, I was disappointed in the gameplay and just gave up. I saw DW7 on the Gamestop shelf and decided to give it a shot. Man am I glad I did. The differences and the upgrades to the game are welcomed changes. Each general has 2 weapons that can be equipped (from a very large array and sub categories), 2 musou attacks, and alternate costumes and so on. There's a lot to take in and to enjoy. My absolute favorite additive being the Conquest Mode. It's a nice little mix of light strategy with the Three Kingdoms storyline. It gives opportunities to play all of the characters in their own Legendary battles as well as Historical battles, battles to unlock items and weapons and alliances and such. It's a great buy for the price and offers hours upon hours of hack and slash fun. Now if they would just release a new Dynasty Tactics...
Best DW thus far
I've played most DW games in the series, but this one is by far my favorite. It has it's typical yet addicting Hack n' Slash playstyle, But it's so fun & consuming that you forget how repetitive it is. Story mode is super-long leaving it's lasting appeal at a very high rate, & there are a ton of characters to choose from including my 2 favs. Lu Bu & Gan Ning. You can play 2 player Co-op (as usual) & there are a ton of unlockables & upgrades that keep you from feeling lost. Overall I'd give this a 9.4 if i could. Very enjoyable & long lasting.
Deserves every bit of praise.
Dynasty Warriors deserves a 9.0 at least. I gave it a 9 because I couldn't pick 9.5. The reason I gave it such a high rating is because of it's lasting appeal and it is loads of fun to play. The gameplay is very simple, yet very satisfying, making it an easy game to play with younger kids but also great fun for yourself . Never in any other game have I had the pleasure of hurling 30 guys up into the air with a single swipe from my spear. Some of you may dislike the sound of that if your a realism kinda player but trust me when I say you won't even notice with all the fun your having. One of my favorite things about Dynasty warriors 7 is the unlockables. Many games are inching away from the whole unlock this by completing this kind of style. But Dynasty Warriors is not like other games. In the beginning, you only start out with a handful of guys to play as. But with further gametime you will begin to collect characters and soon you will find yourself searching for the perfect character to fit your style of play like I did. There are definitely over 50 playable characters in the game, and although unlocking them may sometimes be a tedious pursuit, it for the most part adds lots of gameplay. The conquest mode is very long and provides almost an overwhelming amount of missions to accomplish. The combat itself is very fun considering they have added a bunch of new weapons that ANY character is capable of wielding (Some are better at wielding some than others). It's also really nice how they added the two weapon slots so you can experiment with different combinations. Each character also has their own unique skill tree, it doesn't take too long to buy all the perks, but long enough to satisfy. The game is great and if you like to play split screen with friends it's even better. Dynasty Warriors 7 is not a game to be ignored. It is great in every aspect, and I believe it leads the fighting genre.
Well Ive been playing Dynasty Warriors for years now. I even played the online pc version. The graphics are good and so is the game play. I liked when they switched players up on you in story mode because I got a chance to experience players that I never play with. I don't like that the players can just switch up weapons. I like the old school Dw that each player had a unique weapon that you can upgrade. The weapons in the game seem so generic. There is NEVER anyone playing online. I still love DW but I feel that its starting to get stale. The story mode was good but I won't be getting anymore DW games.
THE GAME IS REALLY FUN I BUT CONQUEST IS WAY TOO LONG. I LIKE THE WAY THE CHARACTERS SWITCH IN BETWEEN WEAPONS BUT I I THINK THEY FORCED TO KEEP THEIR ORIGINAL WEAPON. I WISH THEY WOULD BRING BACK FREE MODE I MISS IT A LOT. LOVE THE STORY MODE BUT THE DON'T LIKE HOW YOU HAVE TO TALK TO AN OFFICER INSTEAD OF GOING STRAIGHT INTO BATTLE. BUT OVERALL ITS A GREAT GAME.
This game you guys have to get I mean this is so awesome you can not deny it and I made over 20 friends on this game and you cannot deny this game you need to get this game and once you played the game you won't want to get off it like me . I got the game and I played for 4 hours straight it was so mind indulging and with the 3D graphics it feels like your 3D HD TV is the window to the game ( you need to get a 3D TV and connect the HDMI Cable ( not included ) and you need to follow the instructions to connect the cable to the TV ) and once you get the game you will go around your school telling your friends about it , trust me I played it.
This is the most awesome game I have ever played.
Dude i love this game i would recommend this game to every who wants action , adventure , free playing , and experience 3D like you never have before.The game includes over 20 different kinds of weapons , Switch Attack , new characters and now introducing the new power the Kingdom of Jin.The Kingdom of Jin includes Sima Yi his sons Sima Shi and Sima Zhao , Deng Ai , Zhong Hui , Wang Yuan Ji , Xiahou Ba , Guo Huai and Zhuge Dan.The game modes include Story mode , Conquest mode the Gallery , and Encyclopedia.This is the most awesome you will ever played.I recommend this to all.
I recommend this game. If you're like me and though dynasty warriors 6 a disappointment you will like this one. My only complaint is lack of 2 player mode. However Dynasty warriors 7 xtreme legends will feature that and more which I recommend.
