Rated 9 out of 10 by Meech Grace and Gore! A DW6 Beater!
What an awesome game! This game will mostly appeal to all those hack and slash fans out there, particularly if you already like the Dynasty Warriors Series. Unlike most games in this segment there is plenty of blood and gore just like you would see in real war. The battle cries, sword clashing, shield blocks, screams and sounds are a splendid addition to game play and flow perfectly with the screen action. Players have unique styles and play quite differently. Environmental interaction is pretty cool also, you can pick up and throw enemy Spears, Swords, Axes, etc. Player size is a bit smaller than dynasty series and attack flow is far more graceful. Block and parry are very useful abilities and far less redundant then in most games. You can also duel with enemy commanders while all the troops circle and watch! I don't want to say to much and ruin it, but if you consider yourself a gamer, this title is an absolute must play!
Rated 0 out of 10 by ajax0014 Great Potential, will it be handled?
This is such a wide topic, so much of the retelling of Homer's The Illiad (the first letter in that is supposed to be a capital i, and the next two are supposed to be LL but lowercase) revolves around the brute force of the battles. Well I hope this game won't revolve strictly around that, strategy was a major part of the war. 3 obvious strategic plots to the story that will be impossible to miss if you want this game to sell at least 10 copies would be: A. The Trojans were expert archers and used it to their advantage, B. The Trojan Wall was impossible to get by unless by getting inside first, which brings us to C. The Greeks use of the Trojan Horse. Without those three aspects this game has nothing to do with the Trojan War. My guess is they will be included. I am looking forward to this game, hoping for a good story and good gameplay.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Hitman2nine Sleeper Hit
Picked this game up today kind of as a fluke and boi am I glad that I am. Was really not sure what to make of it due to never hearing about it not seeing very many reviews on it. Glad that I did because it throws you into the action from the very start. Do not get me wrong there is nothing fancy about it as of yet, but the game looks really nice and moves exceptionally well. From the looks of it the story appears to be a good one as well. Definitely worth a buy if you are looking for someting to keep you tied up between the major titles. Definitely worth the 9 that I gave it because it is greatly exceeding my expectations.

Looks good so far. The game’s worth will be decided by the game play and it is accuracy to the Iliad. The game does not seem based off the movie released a few years ago (which to most of us who actual read the Iliad, could not stand.) according to everything, I have read so far anyway. Koei overall makes fine games, and they tailor it to their fan base. If this game goes over well they may make more over the Greek/roman myths. In addition, I would advise ignoring the MapleHead321 since first there have been many movies based on the Iliad, and the legend is timeless. Then again that is just a philosophy major’s opinion.
Rated 10 out of 10 by parmahts a great game
Grab this game if you can I had a hard time finding a copy the blood and gore are very real looking and the action is none stop my only complaint is I had a hard time getting the sound to work I had to mess with the sound settings on my ps3 for a couple of hours to get the sound to work to get the sound to work make sure the dts box is checked not the dolby box would have been nice if this info was provided in the book but again this is a great game and very hard to find I had to get my copy at best buy and they didnt have many left. This game will be the sleeper of the year
Rated 8 out of 10 by Notedeath Good in a way
This game is pretty decent surprisingly. It's basically the roman/greek version of DW which is very different and unique. It needs more characters definitely but the gameplay is not that bad. Graphics really amazed me but it doesn't have as much replay value as DW of course. But It's a job well done by koei, I'd say pick it up if you like hack and slash games. If you're scared that you don't like it then get the pre-owned... simple as that.
Rated 0 out of 10 by GT Fan since day 1 This Game is NOT based on a MOVIE!
For the poster, all due respect, this game is not a movie to game like X-men origins: Wolverine and Avatar... This is a game based on the war between Troy and Sparta, that is all.. if your a fan of any of the DW series, let this be known, KOEI is redesigning the gaming engine for this title, to make the battles more realistic... No more one swing and killing 30 men, I am looking forward to this game!

Rated 0 out of 10 by GreekMythology Doesnt look that good
If you want a great game that focus's on greek mythology than buy Age of Mythology. It is an older game (2002) but is still played by hundreds of people everyday, online multiplayer is awesome. If you buy this and don't like it I highly recommend Age of Mythology for the PC. Less than $20 I believe.
Rated 9 out of 10 by darkerthanblack Brutally awesome
I've played a lot of dynasty warriors game. This is one of the most brutal and awesome at the same time. Love this game would never trade it in for any cost, one of a kind. NOW (Warriors Orochi 3) you can also play as achillies which is also a recommended game by me.
