This game was not looking good when I first played it. With no prior experience with Dynasty Warriors I was lost and there is absolutely NO in-game tutorial. But after enough trial and error I figured it out and I gotta say, while not perfect by any stretch of the imagination this game is actually pretty fun. Now this is the very first Dynasty Warriors game I have played so I can't compare it to any other titles, but I feel this game is fun whether you've played any of the series or not. The campaign (a Risk-esque "capture the world" map.) is a pretty interesting way to set up the massive battles that this game holds. And the battles themselves is where the strengths lie, you get to tear through hundreds of enemies to take over enemy bases and take out commanders. And while enemy AI leaves a lot to be desired I still found myself enjoying it. And the best part is you can play the entire campaign with split-screen co-op and leading an army with yours friends is EXTREMELY fun. Now the graphics are um... Decent... And the sound... Eh. The music is enjoyable enough, but the SFX are iffy and the voice acting is hilariously bad. So all in all the game is fun, but is far from a masterpiece. It's a perfect casual hack and slash game.
