Rated 1 out of 10 by BillyJJ What was they thinking???
This game is horrible. I would not recommend this because you cannot find the items that you need to upgrade your weapon and the characters are too hard to beat. The characters you are with don't give you a chance to fight against the main character. You cannot get the items for floating in air...you can't get the items for anything in this game, they are too hard to find. It takes too many healing potions to get through one board. The character does not carry enough healing potions. There aren't enough options to build up your character. it is the same teams over and over. You don't get enough points to fill up the levels in the game. What is up with building up the city...I think it is a joke and waste of time. Even things you don't need. Dynasty Warriors used to be simple. You never needed a strategy book for these games, why should I start now? I never was disappointed in Dynasty Warriors like I am in this one. It is basically like all the other ones, never a new force...
Rated 10 out of 10 by GameCritic12321 Start With Strikeforce!
If you want to start playing Dynasty Warriors, start with Strikeforce! I love the idea of fury and chi and stuff like that. The graphics and map layouts are astonishing, not to mention the awesome storyline and crossover quests! This is by far the best game I've played ever. I would recommend this to everyone in the world!

ok, i used to be a big fan of the dynasty warrior games for the ps2 (dw 3,4) but i havnt played any of the more recent ones. i saw the demo for this game, however, so i downloaded it. If it did not say Dynasty warriors on the title i would have thought it to be a completly different game. it has changed so much, i can't believe it (for te worse). first of all, the entire point of the original games was to have two armies going at it in large scale conflict. in this game, you have no army, and all the maps are 100% linear. no battlefield. picture a narrow corridor with hundreds of enimies along it, and you are alone to kill all of them. and then do that over and over again. thats what this game seems to be. but, if you like hack n' slash games, this one isn't half bad in that respect. it dissapoints me that a game that used to be so original and fun has turned into this cliche garbage.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Amari Surpassed Expatiation
This game has certainly reached and surpassed my expatiation. I have no knowledge of the prior Dynasty Warriors games, but I must say I did not expect this. My favorite part of Strikeforce not only are you able to play along with other players, but the upgrading system for the city. This allows you not only be focus on only fighting, but being able to obtain items to make yourself a better player. The trade system is also a great add on. I'm constantly trying to get items to advance my weapons and shops. The most disappointing thing about this game is that you can not customize your character. The most customization you can have with your character is the three outfits you can unlock that the game gives you. But none the less this is an awesome game! From the awesome combos you can do on the battle field, the Chis you can obtain to make your character to the unthinkable, the helpful items you can receive from the market to help aid your team, to simply chatting with team mates on your mic as you share the battle grounds. There's no need rent this game, unless you want to continue to by rentals. Enjoy gamers!
Rated 9 out of 10 by swglover50 FUN but different
Well... the game is fun but it can get hard. The new "Fury" option in the game can help a little but can get annoying if the enemy officers have it so knock them out fast. Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce has a story behind it unlike the older Koei games.(that I played) They took out the spilt-screen feature from the game but added a mutiplayer online mode to play with your friend and level up. Also you can meet people online so they can help you complete your HARD quests. The new friendly officers feature allows you to control your team mates by giving commands to them. The City can let you buy things and upgrade your weapons and chi by collecting items on the battlefield(you also need money). You can float around once you upgrade the chi shop and get the right items to learn it.(and money). The lock-on feature can get VERY annoying so I use it uncommonly.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Necrofessor Great series
Always been a fan of the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors games ever since I played Dynasty Warriors 3 at a friends house. It was a different style back then before this new one came out. Strikeforce looks like it's going to be a very good game in it's own way separate from the others. They changed a few things in this, including the new online co-op (which I'm hoping is fun) and it looks like they turned this into more of an RPG setting then it's predecessors which was just hack and slash. Over all I think Koei is making another spin to the Dynasty Warriors games like they did with Samurai Warriors, I'm sure they will continue their old style with Dynasty Warriors 7 and see how this new spin off does like they did with Samurai Warriors.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Zodiac730 Good but Bad
This game is fun in certain ways like the 4 player co op against hard enemies or hard quest. You have a variety of weapons but you have restrictions to use the weapon depending on your characters experience in the weapon type. They still didnt add any new combos when the old dynasty wars was out you had combos button combos and then when "6" came out it felt like the game downgraded. But the down fall is that your fighting by yourself which is not bad but these quests sometime are OD hard or the boss has a crazy amount of defense and health. I like how they put the "fake" bodyguard thing in there and tell them what to do ( Fight weaponry, Fight Officers, Fight Soldiers, or move around freely). You also have "RECYCLED MAPS" <--- Basically the same map just with different scenery or color. To UPGRADE your city takes forever unless you do what i did just make all your cards the same building. Finding materials for new weapons are hard to find unless you have the orb that lets you find rare spoils after killing an enemy. At least add different type of quest to it like what happen in between before the battles happened. There more problems but I'm done typing so yea...hope I didnt ruin anything for ya. If you want to play the game go ahead dont let this review stop you try it for yourself.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Anon Y Mous Loads of fun!
Strikeforce is a great improvement on the Dynasty Warriors franchise,there's alot of great new features although there are a few small things they took out that makes it a little flawed, for one, there's no offline 2 player unlike most of the series, not as many characters (although there shouldnt be AS much with the new Fury costumes anyway) and no create a character as well as a few other small things, but still provides hours of entertainment and challenge with heavily customizable weapons and abilities. Not to mention fun crossover cameo missions with Ninja Gaiden and Warriors Orochi characters. Some of the main things that made me get this game were the great improvement on graphics, (which were usually pretty terrible in the other games) and online feature which can compensate for the lack of 2 player offline, you can do quests with 3 other players online. The story doesnt differ much from the others mainly because i think they are based on real historic Chinese events (i think), but still, there's tons of quests as well as DLC soon to follow, with 3 stories (one for each faction: Wei, Wu and Shu) with each being extremely lengthy. The controls are easy to pick up and play yet can be very fast paced, and overall, this is an exhilarating game, and i recommend it to action gamers and DW franchise fans everywhere!
Rated 0 out of 10 by swglover50 VERY FUN
I played the demo and thought it was fun but you can't fly but you can jump very high 3 times until you upgrade it to jump more or higher(i saw the stores and their stuff) Fury is not as useful as you think but it helps like making you jump higher and 1 more time. Level up system looks good like the more KOs the more EXP you get and the more EXP you get the better Fury you get and better with your weapon. I have high hopes for this game! Good luck Koei. Thank you gamers keep on playing!

First off I am a big Warriors fan from dynasty warriors to samurai warriors etc... I Love a good hack an slash this new installment has a good feel to it. now there air combat and actually the weapon customization system which is cool but what happened to the CAC /create a character mode any ways its good too see a game that actually plays like the opening looks. all and all good job to the producers at KOEI But give us or CAC back it makes you feel apart of the game.
