Rated 1 out of 10 by Gamie Not what it seems
Im a big fan of the series, but after playing this, on easy, is quite horrible. You cannot go anywhere without those mages striking you. Much less, the bosses always like to fly constantly and have their "musou" going. I bought it tonight, trading it back tomorrow. It is not worth the money or your patience. I havent seen any ridable horses or elephants. Sure, I havent got through the entire game play (they usually take many hours), but still. The font is small, and the little manual it comes with does not tell you much, very vague detailed about the stores, the shards, the fighting. The "stones" are extremely hard to find and you have to much of one thing and not enough of the other shards. When youre playing, the other characters are not showing their health bar, very annoying to not be able to see. (Unless, it's bosses then they show). I played the demo and liked it, because of the freedom it had unlike the normal (not empires or extreme legends). I would not recommend this to anyone.
Rated 10 out of 10 by bob bobert great game
if you have ever played mid-evil swords and magic type stuff this is your game online is great unless someone is away and in your game story is incredibly long and super hard so its a huge challenge I love this game because you can be one person and take on a whole army but sometimes it can be a little to challenging like when you fight lu bu in a flooded city the tiger weapons on the roof are super annoying on the box it says its only online co-op that is a lie online if you go to the quest board and hit rb and lb it switches the mode so you can do vs arena and fight someone else the level part of this game (i meen gaining levels like being lvl 50) is like borderlands you level up one character in your kingdom to one level the you switch to the next but the highest level is kind of disapionting because it is only level 50 but the up side is unlike borderlands there is more than just 4 people there are tons of people to level up to level 50 overall this is a great game
Rated 7 out of 10 by Zonewar Here we go again
I really think Dynasty Warriors peaked at 4 Empires, because after that they began to remove some of the features that made the series great,. In 5 they removed the duels and the security guards as well as the female sorcerors. 6 they removed some of the best Warriors.6 Empires is good..but Zhu Rong would have made this much better than her Husband.Now this Strike Force...where do I start..First, the enemies don't die off even after hitting them multiple times, you can't hit multiple enemies ,like Empires 6 and I think they should have kept the special attacks for this game.The Musou Attacks don't last very long and you can get hit during the Transformation.This game gets really weird at times, I think it coincides with the Orochi storyline.All in all I know if Koei makes another Dynasty Warriors ,Samurai Warriors Game...I probably will buy it, I am to big a fan of the series.They really need the bring back the magic of 4 that made the series great.
Rated 1 out of 10 by EvilWolf Horrible!
I am a big fan of Dynasty Warriors series, Samurai Warriors series, and Orochi. I have loved every game, but this game just made me sick. Every bit of the in game play is run ten feet and it loads run another ten feet and load again have a boss fight. This game is nothing but a straight line run. There is no free roam like the old ones. The sound and graphics is good. But this game is not worth buying. I had my hopes up for so long and when I heard the online play was supposed to be where you can set your guys where you want and have strategy. There is none. You are in an arena and have a few hacks and it is over. Co-op is horrible. If you want to play this game I senseriously advice to rent and try it out, because if you are a big fan like me for the orginal series, you will play for about 15 minutes and you will be sick. This game was just throwed together and sold itself by the name. Good Luck everyone.

I'm a long time DW fan since the 3rd game caught eye back in 03 which turned out to be the greatest buy of my life & since then I own every DW game to ever come out. I will admit when I heard about this game & saw it I was like this can't be DW because it looked totally different from the others & I thought well I'll try the demo so I did & I lost 6 hours of my life on a it so I told myself to wake up in the morning & go reserve this game, then when it comes out to play the heck out of it. There is a great deal of challenge due to the enemy AI getting a major boost & the huge boss fights that take place are epic to say the least. You'll be playing this game for a long time because of all the characters & RPG elements that have been added giving it a deep & entertaining good time for any DW fan. If you don't fill like going it alone sadly there is no Split Screen Co-op but there is 4 player online Co-op which takes doesn’t really make up for no split screen but it’s a good new addition.. I don't want give any more away just check it out if you love this series you'll be glad you did.
Rated 1 out of 10 by gamenerd323 Dynasty Warriors StrikeForce strikes me with pain while I'm playing it!
Where do I start, this game is terrible, the controls and awfull, the graphics are bad, plotline is stupid, the game is just so bad, I don't see how it has a 6 out of 10!Graphics: For a game with such little substance, the graphics sure are bad, the game could pass for 2007. Bad coloring and terrible character models.Gameplay: The camera angle makes the game unplayable, either way it is repetetive and boring. Sound: The scipt seemed like something a eight year old would write. The sound effects are poorly done as well, everything sounds the same, yells, attack noises, etc.Interface: The real problem I had was the camera, very hard to control and the HUD was hard to identify.Plot: I didn't see any! ):Challenge: It was easy, but I couldn't kill anyone because of the controls!Length: I couldn't finish it, it was too bad!Similar games: Heavenly Sword, God Of War, Ninja Blade, Bayonetta, Darksiders, etc.Better Choices: Heavenly Sword, God Of War, Ninja Blade, Bayonetta, Darksiders, etc.Equal choices: None (maybe Darksiders, I really didn't like it, but Dynasty Warriors is pretty bad!)Worse choices: None

At first, I honestly didn't think I would like this game. I played the demo and it was pretty fun, especially with the online play. I ended up getting the game after reading more on the good reviews it got, let alone trying my friends version. I love the harder challenge of the flying battles and the huge bosses. It can get frustrating at times, but gets better. My only bad thing about this game is there isnt a whole lot of unlocks to get and the camera control can get a little distracting when fighting the bigger bosses. I absolutely love the graphics, the fact you can switch between weapons, the transformations are quite fun as well. I would recommend this to any Dynasty Warriors fan, definately a different (but good) take on Dynasty Warriors. Hope there will be more games in this series for 360/PS3.
Rated 10 out of 10 by monkey zombie99 Love this game
I am a huge fan of koei warrior game like samurai warriorr and dynasty warrior. My favrite charater in dynasty warrior is zange fei in shu. I like this game so far in this demo on the 360 it was amazing by playing the demo. but the only reason why I don't like it becuase the demo dosen't have my favrite charater in it. But my favrite reason is that you can control the CPU players in this game like I was in comand in this battle [which you are]. I just play dynasty warrior 5 on the regular xbox .I really want you to play this game becuase it really awsome for you. if you really love dynasty warrior or samurai warrior.it really awsome [ I like to called it wicked].It tottaly awsome even meng huo is in there and figting whith a fruit. I still want you to know this is the best game that koei ever made
Rated 9 out of 10 by ttocs A great starting point
Dynasty Warriors has been around the gaming world for years. A lot of people, myself included, played the first couple and then forgot about the series as it released game after game of the same thing. It wasn't until I found out that this game had multiplayer that I decided to give it a shot. Looking back, I'm glad I did. The game is really fun and that is all that matters. You are not going to get an elaborate story or amazing top notch graphics. What you will get is nice graphics, a story that's barely moving the game along, but amazing gameplay. It's fluid and fun and I'm not sure if other reviewers were playing something else, but the game is great. Pick it up used if you aren't sure but give it a try. It's worth your time.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Gunsblazin13 No bueno!!!
This game is the worst of the series plain and simple. They took the psp version made the graphics fit the xbox 360 and ps3 and didn't changed hardly anything else. I love all the dynasty warriors games but this one is going back asap. They need to bring back the weapons that advance through the game....it's been awhile. The only good thing about this game is the characters ability to transform when in mosuo. The levels aren't free roaming like usual, you just zip from one area to the next. There are no gates where people respond and the enemies seem to endlessly come. They often spawn straight out of the sky. The pause menu during battle has also changed for the worst. You can no longer charge your mosuo when not in battle. There are no horses to ride at all, but then again there would be no reason to ride one because of how the levels are so poorly set up. They added a few cool things like being able to hold two weapons but took out waaay to much. You can no longer have the life bars above the enemies heads either....just the bosses. I can not wait until a new title comes out because i was all excited for this one only for it to be extremely dissapointing. They need to make dynasty warriors seven asap and go back to the original style.
