by Truza 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.

by Wa5abie 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.

by TheTruth 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

by Gameaddict99 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
Rated 10 out of 10 by Bigmike121 Well Done Koei!
Dynasty warriors 7 is koei coming back from dynasty warriors 6. This by far is their best one. The gameplay is back to the orginal style fighting whitch is what most DW fans wanted. There are so many weapons to pick from, so that way you can play your favorite warrior, while picking your weapons style. I have to admit almost all the weapon styles are fun to play. I dislike the rapier, and the throwing knives. The Story mode gives you the change to play each force as it actually took place in history. The new pre-battle addition to the game is cool. That fact you get to interact with officers before a battle is a cool feature. Each story keeps you on your toes which is cool. Then conquest mode is just awseome. After you beat the story mode you got another mode unlike the other versions. You battle across china as you see fit. That part of the game is online which is also a nice add. Overall the game is the best in the series. Well done Koei, And I look forward to the Empires of this game. Make us DW fans proud again.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Panini Best Yet!
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!
Rated 6 out of 10 by ekferio 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.
Rated 3 out of 10 by MooseMan404 Disappointment!
This game is complete garbage! I've been a huge fan of Dynasty Warriors ever since I played the first one that was on PS1 back when it was just a fighting game. I had so much expectations for this game. But I was extremely disappointed. The graphics are extremely poor. Dynasty Warriors 4 and 5 that were on the PS2 had far better graphics than this one. The game play sucks. The characters move extremely fast and are all over the screen! You tap the left stick just slightly and they are on the other side of the field. The horse that you ride is bigger than an elephant! It's like you're playing World of Warcraft. It's just a poor quality game. It's like they invested only a couple of hundred dollars to make this game. And it's not challenging what so ever. Very boring and easy. Even when playing on hard. I'm thankful that I borrowed it and not spend $50 on it.

I think this is very well put together the graphic are awesome. The gamplay is one of a kind in my own word this is awesome if any person who read this u are willing to add me as a friend and we can play this together but no little kids better not add me. Aside of that note and if your willing to play me in black ops as well you can or if you have a clan you are willing to see us ( i drill holes, i hang drywall, i paint houses, i nail boards, i climb ladders, i fit pipes, i lay carpet, i carry wood, i install sinks, i pour cement, and i grout tiles) thats the whole an FYI we are a MLG team so go luck :). OK back to the game the new weapons are awesome like gan ning (favortive character) has a chain scythe. And the new costumes are off the hook the disign are cool looking like lu bu so if you think your good enough to play me or my clan you are welcome to
Rated 9 out of 10 by LildsPop Dynasty Warriors fans will love.. most of this one
Pros: Great gameplay, lots of enemies to kill, varied stages, varied weapons, extensive character base (64 characters), LOTS of weapons, online play, multiplayer, you can swim climb and it is very open mapped. They really got the gameplay great in this one, it is fun for hours and all ages of fans. Cons: No more 50+ hit combos (unless you REALLY try), mosou attack is different; but not in a bad way IMO, aaaand that's about it really. ----People that have never played this series before would probably like this one better than previous installments because the gameplay is very well done and not so linear with one person having a single weapon the whole game. The story is always good. I think this is definitely worth picking up, especially when the price drop hits ;)
