What Gamespot Users have to say about Dynasty Warriors 5 Empires

  • Review Score:4.9

    Why, oh why, did we have to get the Empires instead of the regular version?

    Gameplay: You assume control of one of China's many warriors during the Three Kingdoms period. But the twist to the Empires series is that there's almost no story, nothing fun ever happens during the fights, and nearly ... Read Full Review

    A good game for strategists.

    Don't let the cover fool you, this isn't some fast paced 3rd Century war game where you fight side by side with your men. This is pretty much the opposite. Dynasty Warriors 5: Empires is a strategy game. It gives you con... Read Full Review

    The strategy element in empires adds some variety to an otherwise usual entry in the Dynasty Warriors series.

    Hey look, yet ANOTHER Dynasty Warriors game. But this one's actually somewhat different to the last thousand iterations thanks to somewhat interesting strategy gameplay. The main mode here is the Empires mode, which ... Read Full Review

    The strategy elements of the game are nice, but the boring & asinine button-mashing combat remains.

    Everyone knows the Dynasty Warriors franchise is about falling in love with one button on the controller for a long time. Most of these games are pure button-mashers that get old very quickly. On top of that, Koei seems ... Read Full Review

    will suit the hack n' slash lovers fine but easily a passable 360 title.

    dynasty warriors is back and this game is a decent sequel to the rich series. this game tries to implement more strategy into the dynast warriors, but in the end its really just another update for the same concept Koei ... Read Full Review
