dynasty warriors. for example, the mosou mode for DW5XL is you creating a soldier and fighting under an officer of your choice.
then as you fight for whoever you fight for you'll skills will improve based also on what you choose for your character to get better at. (arrows/health/ambushes/putting a base on fire, and these are just a few. also as you fight for your commander he'll promote you from soldier to sergent to major and eventually to LT. general! and you'll get the weapon of the comander you pick as you get get promoted. this is called destiny mode. and that's just one mode!
there's xtreme mode, legend mode, and some other goods.
in xtreme mode you pick your fighter, and go and try to survive basically!
you have to find some ways to heal yourself becase the game wont do that for you in this mode. is there an end to it? no one's found out. YET!
you can also use the person you made for destiny mode here if you beat destiny mode. the rest of that you'll have to find out for yourself!
and legend mode is where you take on level's that weren't in the other dynasty warriors. it's awsome that you can (if you have it) use DW5 and DW5XL together easily to use all of the modes.
so get the fricken game!
