Grudge and a new rebellion mutiny bring an end to the four hundred year reign of the Han dynasty. The once noble empire of China crumbles into three warring states. In this latest of the Dynasty Warriors saga, honour and loyalty in the face of adversity serve as the game's theme. Obligations to one's lords and allies guide these ancient warriors across the battlefields of Ancient China. Dynasty Warriors 4 uses the most advanced melee-fighting engine to deliver the next evolution of tactical action. Experience the thrill of taking on multiple opponents at once and fighting against impossible odds. New features not only add more depth to the legend of the Three Kingdoms but also to the individual characters and the dramatic events surrounding them. Conquer over 50 levels across 17 unique maps. More than any other Dynasty Warriors game! Fierce new one-on one duels with enemy officers! Giant siege engines, essential to battlefield victory, include catapults, battering rams, bridge layers, flame-throwing tiger tanks and more! Create your own officers and bodyguards in Edit mode. A Dynasty Warriors first! Kingdom Play allows you to select a different general for each stage in the revamped Musou mode.

All Dynasty Warriors characters return. Over 40 playable characters fully redesigned and remodelled, along with 3 new officers: Cao Ren, Zhou Tai, Yue Ying. New victory conditions emerge and different events occur as the battle unfolds. A completely new soundtrack blends modern music with classical Chinese Asian instruments and styles Up to 8 bodyguards per player! Elephant troops will be available in the Nanman Stage 1-2 Players, 4 versus and 4 challenge modes
If you've never played an earlier version of the game, here's what you need to know: Dynasty Warriors is a fighting game series played from the third-person perspective, where you pick a military general as your avatar and fight across sprawling battlefields. The generals all have distinct personalities and there are a few women characters included too. As you campaign, you collect special items such as the Dragon Amulet which increases your Musou gauge (Musou allows you to enact special, prolonged attacks on multiple enemies). You have bodyguards, you kill enemy generals, and along the way your new skill points increase your weapon's power.
With DW4, there are many new additions, only some of which are successful. Charge attacks and items are souped up and truly improved. For example, equipping a magic orb can cause you to freeze enemies in a block of ice. You can edit characters, but with so many good preset ones to choose from, chances are you won't spend a lot of time working on your own. In addition to a better game engine, there's also the option of one-on-one-duels. The maps are immense compared to previous editions, with a lot more variance in what can happen by the end of your mission.
Even with a significant number of new features, it's debatable whether or not Dynasty Warriors 4 is a true overhaul, or just another release to cash in on the popularity of the franchise. Regardless, it's addictive for reasons that almost defy explanation. You just want to clear this act, to get to the next stage, and to reveal the goodies you've received from killing that big boss. It's as simple as that. And at the moment when you can knock down an entire platoon with a couple of hits, well, then you'll join the ranks of the dedicated. --Jennifer BuckendorffSee all Product Description

DW 4 offers you everything DW 3 had, but it spices it up a lot more for an even more enthralling experience. A major letdown is that the bodies of allies and rivals don't stay where they fall, they just disappear without trace, it would add even more class to the game if the bodies didn't vanish.
Once again, golden oldie levels such as Yellow Turban Rebellion, Hu Lao Gate and Cheng Du have made a third appearance, but this time, they have been split up into three smaller levels so it'll take you longer to get through the whole level.
The Battle still rages on, the Kingdoms of Wei,Shu and Wu still violently face each other on the war torn battlefields of Ancient China and that (...) Lu Bu is still working for Dong Zhuo, can't he take a hint that we kick his arse every time we face him. Can't he just quit while he's ahead.
All the characters look completely different especially Zhang Jiao, he looks alot fatter and younger. There is also this cool character making option. You can only make four but the parts you can use are good. The same thing as xtreme legends is the body gaurd edit and the data base thing. I really want this game for my own because my friend has been attached to this game and rarely gives me a shot. I wish Amazon would hurry up and get the game in quicker so i can buy it.
