    Aging, but still a very cool and unique game

    Love it—well, mostly. This is an incredibly under-appreciated game. It does get repetitious after a lot of play, but what doesn't? I liken the battles to a a big, flashy chess game, with lots of bells and whistles. The b... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Dynasty Tactics 2

  • User Rating:7.8

    Some substantial flaws: it feels like half of a potentially great game.

    After some time playing, it becomes clear this is a more complex version of Final Fantasy Tactics: there are levels to earn, different professions, bonus items that upgrade stats, and the whole thing is turn-based combat... Read Full Review

    You'll certainly love it!

    This game is one the best strategy game I knew other than Romance of Three Kingdoms series, the only thing close is Final Fantasy Tactics. You'll be in the midst of three kingdoms area, 180-250AD, Mainland China. Aft... Read Full Review

    Best in the dynasty seris...but thats not saying much

    Of all the dynasty warriors games i ever bought this is the only one i still have (DW3, DW4 empires). All i wanted from the seris was some strategy, which this game should offer. When i think of dynasty warriors + strate... Read Full Review

    Not bad. Not bad at all

    Gameplay gets you very involved and you'll enjoy your time with this little gem. Though you might feel the gameplay needed some more ... stuff or something but it's fun. The graphics are very good especially the cutscene... Read Full Review

    Not for a Dynasty WARRIORS fan.

    I bought Dynasty Tactics 2 when I had a DW crave and started buying everything that had Dynasty infront of it (That show sucks by the way) I made the biggest mistake with this game. If you like stargey games that take 50... Read Full Review

    Play "tactics" with your Dynasty Warriors characters

    Wow, what a great game. After being disappointed with the fictional storyline of Kessen II Dynasty Tactics 2 blew me away. GRAPHICS: 8 out of 10. Nothing trend setting, but most tactics games, like Front Mission or Fina... Read Full Review

    This is an excellent game, but not for the story or the graphics.

    You have to like tactics to like this game. The graphics are simple and there's really no story. But the turn based, tactical battle system is very good. It has a unique 'chain' system where you set up all your units ... Read Full Review

    Finally a Dynasty Warriors game with some tactics rather than just slaughter. Now they just need to combine both.

    For a long time i've been waiting for a Dynasty Warriors game to come out, one that included tactics into the game. In Dynasty Warriors You've got all these "Legendary" strategists like Sima Yi, Zhuge Liang and... Read Full Review
