This game has everything I once wanted in a DW game. A town and shops interface, new modes and abilities and upgrades to old favorite characters. The only problem? That's quite literally ALL it has going for it. The story mode (the only mode by the way) is the same rehashing, right down to the levels. With one exception. This is a single player game in every sense of the word. You're out there, by yourself. No body guards, no other generals...heck, there's not even a program-controlled army wandering around like usual. It's YOU against the entire level. So it makes for a good challenge but that's about it. There are new abilities, chi and upgrades you can buy in the town which serves as your base in between missions, but how exactly they work is completely unclear, it's a series of experimenting until you figure out what exactly you're supposed to be doing; it's a very steep learning curve. The missions themselves are reminiscent of the Challenge mode in previous DW installments, they don't really have much more to them than that. Want to make a character? Too bad. Want to watch the opening again? Sorry not an option. Change your characters cloths? Sure but you won't see how it looks beforehand. Musou mode? Nope. In home versus mode? Oh ya, true single player. They've also added this fun new addition wherein if you die, you're automatically revived up to 3 times and the enemy's life stays where it was when you died. Sounds good in theory, until you see just how seriously this takes away from any challenge there would be. And the camera mode can only be described as floppy. This isn't something I'm personally used to in a DW game and it just gets in the way in melee combat and makes it far to easy to accidentally lose sight of the guy kicking you around like a stuffed doll, which again, is not an issue because of course you'll just re-spawn if you die. All in all, it just seems like a big lazy FU from Koei. The only and I mean only true plus about the game is the new Fury mode, which looks amazing and adds to the already beautiful game series...but it's honestly not much more effective than Musou attack, which is really just seems like an enhancement to. I would only recommend this game to true fans of the series just to have for the Fury mode and nothing more, but not at full price, not even at the current used price, it's truly not worth more than $9. I can see this being somewhat interesting for someone's who has never played a DW game before and therefore doesn't know what to expect, but still, no, not full price.
No: I don’t recommend this product
