Dynasty Warriors 6 is yet another great installment to add to the list
The game is essentiantially the story of the three kingdoms of china where
you relive history as one of the many officers of the three kingdoms during the
reigns of Wei, Wu and Shu.
The game is a great button bashing game and does require a lot of strategy to
achieve victory. What I love about this game is it's replay factor – how
many games do you buy these days that you play over and over? I haven't touched
half the games i've bought once i've finished them because you know all the
surprizes but with Dynasty Warriors you can and I still do.
Every level you play in the 6 level single player campaigns (Musou Mode)
will level your character to have stronger abilities (speed, strength, attach,
deffense etc.) and with over 20 levels and usually 2 or 3 “sides” to play
on in battle the combinations are very vast.
There are over 30 characters to play from, 15 of which have single player
scenarios and the others are playable in Free Mode which adds to hours of gaming
(if only there were a timer showing total game time I'd be shocked). Any mode
will increase your level so if you're having trouble in Musou Mode, hop over to
Free Mode and level up!
The story is very good, there is a lot of information about the kingdoms in
the game and many things to unlock. A great purchase to add to your
I've really enjoyed this game and still play it often. I've been a fan right
back from DW2 and have enjoyed them all.
I give this 4 stars for gameplay, replay factor, cinematics and graphics.
It's a very smooth game and has a great bullet time effect when there's huge
numbers of units to defeat.
I would recommend installing the game to your HDD as this speeds up loading
to less than a quarter of the time.
