Dynasty Warriors 7
The one you have been waiting for.
If you are looking at this game most likely you have played a dynasty warriors title before. Like me you have probably played several of them, and each time a new one is about to come out you have your fingers crossed that they will update the graphics, and add the features that the last 3 titles should have had. So far little has came with each new title, but its always enough to satisfy us because we love the action and the concept, maybe even the story. I had to get on here and tell any DW fans that this is the one you have been waiting for. I was a little skeptical about buying it because i figured it would be just like DW:6 with 2-3 new features. This is not the case. In my opinion this is how the game should have been all along. The story is very in depth. You dont get to pick your character the story picks it for you as the plot progresses. You learn so much more about all the characters than previous titles. The graphics are incredible for a dynasty warriors title, fast frame rates, fluid animations and the musou's have new effects like going into slow motion and lighting effects. They feel like powerful signature moves now instead of an aoe. The music is as good as ever and the sound effects are modern, adding impact to animations. The voice acting for the main characters is actually quite good, the extras not so much. There are companion animals that fight and new types of mounts. You can also take control of siege weapons now and fire them where ever you want, at people or at a gate you want to break down, etc. There is so much new I cant list it all. In short, if your a fan of the series, buy this now! If you have never played a dynasty warriors game. This is the best one to start with. The story mode is nothing like past titles. Its very deep, and very enjoyable, it tells more about the characters than any of the rest have, and the content, omg, so...much. :D I hope this was helpful.
Going to be Great!
I have been a Dynasty Warriors fan since number two has come out. I own everyone in the series, including the Empires, and Extreme Legends. I love the series, number six however was a little dissapointing, and I was hoping 7 would be better. From what I have seen it is. Here is a liitle info on the game. There will be over 60 playable warriors, and of those, 13 are confirmed new. All the warriors armor is redone, and most have gone back to their original weapon. The fighting system is back to the 5 charge base attack system, like it was in DW2-DW5. There is a new force called Jin, with the returning Shu, Wu, Wei, for Musou mode. Other warriors are in there but only playable for the new Chronicle mode. Which is like a Empires, where you travel china and fight in battles. That mode has been confirmed to be online play, Co-op. You will now get support animals to ride or to fight along side you in battle. Confirmed ones are Elephant, and Panda. There is a new weapon system and growth system in the game. Players can equip any two weapons they want, that can be switched in an out through battle. There is to be over 360 diffrent weapon types. ( Thats what I herd, but I am a little confused on that myself). Graphics have been improved again, and swimming and ladder climbing is to be in this game also. There is a lot more info about the game but I cant list it all. The game looks like it will be the best in the series. I would recommend it to DW fans.
Dynasty Warriors 7--Soooo Excited
Im am more than excited for DW7. I jumped on the DW train I guess 10 years ago and have been with them thru the ups and downs, the great games and the "what were u thinking". DW7 appears to be the best game ever, graphics, characters, weapons, and everything else apears to have reached new heights. I CANT WAIT. Do hope they bring back VS mode. 3/29 please come quicker
The right direction
Ok I have played days on days of dynasty warriors in my life time lol that means slaying hundreds of thousands of peasant cheiftans... however when will they day come to where you get to make your own warrior and play through a story mode with him? Ive been waiting for years... And I know you can make a character on 6 but it was poorly done with no story mode, Cmon guys still a fan but my patience is wearing thin
this game is freaking amazing.
I'll put it like this Dynasty Warriors 7 is the best game of the series so far. when it comes to the graphics they are crisp and clean cut and the story line is freakin amazing. Each character has so much detail about them and you get to know more about their background. like for example, Xiahou Dun's character is way cooler than before and when you are playing the story mode for Wei you get to see what Xiahou Dun looked like before he lost his eye, and so much more. Lu Bu, is of course still the most hardcore character in the whole game and he has some really cool new armor. All in all anybody who has been a fan of the Dynasty warriors since its birth will love this game and for any newcomers. I welcome you into one of the most amazing historically correct action packed video games ever made. Enjoy my fellow Dynasty fans. Much Love.
The opening video and the combat Videos are very good. But I wish the 29TH of march will get here soon. I can't wait for Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 to come out too.
Perfect on the graphic side
I've been a fan of the series for a long time and played every one of them. Visually, this game could not have looked any better. The character/weapon/stages designs are incredibly authentic. The problem with this game is the story mode lacks freedom. You are fixed to use a character on each stage, and you can't bring another person or a horse with you. The conquest mode is a lot deeper, but it's also silly because you are just fighting random people on each stage. It's kind of like a "free mode" except you could be fighting someone who is supposed to be your ally. For example, if you play as Guan Yu, Liu Bei might be one of the bosses to fight. The whole purpose of this mode for me, is to get better weapons. The 10th weapon unlike previous series can be bought. In fact, that's how you get it. You don't need to earn it. The game would have been the best one in the series if the story mode is a lot deeper. Also, each character should have his/her own story mode like it used to be. It's meaningless to have so many characters to choose from when you don't get to use them in story mode.
You will either love it or hate It
well this is one of those games you will either love it or hate it, because there are lots of changes game play wise. They replaced muso mode with story mode. Now the game actually has a story and not the same old open battles with out a true story, and don't get me wrong there still is an open battle but it has a story behind it and objectives that will help you win the battle. You can also interact with the officers before the battle and yes there is no loading screen before the battle starts it goes straight into the battle when your ready. There is also a new Kingdom called the Jin Kingdom but I will leave that for you to play. This where you may stray from the game, because can't play with every characters due to the fact that well it goes by the story of the game in story mode. Now it you might like it because you may get to play with your favorite characters, but you don't get to choose because of the story. Now don't mad because you can play with your favorite characters in Conquest Mode which allows you to be a mercenary and then choose fight for a kingdom later down the road. Now like in true dynasty warriors fashion you have to unlock other players. You can also wiled 2 weapons and change out the weapon so lets say you want to change CaoCao weapons to a duel sword well you can do that and have another weapon like a pike, or a spear. All in All I liked, but I'm a big dynasty warriors so I will suggest that you rent it first to see if you may like it, because you may or may not like all the changes they did.
I started playing Dynasty Warriors since 4 came out, and I've played all of them since 3. This one by far is the best. The two most noticeable things are one, you look much more beasty on the battle field. Before you could destroy a lot of guys, but you didn't look to different from everybody else - now it's totally different. The game makes you look 10X cooler with spectacular attacks and great fighting scenes. The second thing is the improved story line. Before everything seemed vague, but you got along, now the story line explains everything as it actually happened making it much more realistic. All in all this is a great game. If you haven't played any of the other Dynasty Warrior games, I'd recommend starting with them first because they're all very good, but they always look bad compared to the new and improved one. Is this game worth 60 dollars...? meh. Is it worth 30 dollars (it's on sale now), heck ya!
