Playing this on hard mode with a no-experience character was my favorite. I miss the hard AI's…
Dynasty Warriors is one of the very few games I like to play on hard mode - in 3 they really nailed something. The other games didn't give as much satisfaction from playing on hard mode for some reason.
All classics for Wu - I got so upset when they took Da Qiao out of the franchise (thank goodness they had the sense to put her back in). Maybe they thought they met their girl-with-fan quota? You can never have too many girls with fans!
Lu Xun has been another fave since Dynasty Warriors 3 - when he has he double swords as his weapon it's the best. Zhou Yu is my third, his combos and outfits are great in every game - and his demeanor is very much my vibe.
Zhuge Liang is my favorite historical figure period. Ma Chao had BANGIN combos in Dynasty Warriors 3, and they kinda kept messing him up in subsequent games. But, he is still an all-time favorite because his move combos were just that freaking good in 3.
My obsession with mystics continue - Wei is my least favorite force but they do have some dank mystics. I think my selection speaks for itself as to my taste…
It was a close tie between Edit Mode and Bodyguards for me. I miss the challenge of keeping your bodyguards alive, but the game would have REALLY lost something if they had done away with edit mode.
Koei Tecmo was never afraid to try new things, and often times new mechanics would get tossed after a game or two. I'm really glad edit mode stuck around, though.
Her combos in Warriors Orochi 4 are sooo beautiful. A beautiful, graceful massacre.
Who doesn't love flipping around and throwing bad guys everywhere?
Yes, I totally have a thing for the mystics.
His combos were really amazing from the first game he was introduced in. I wish I could take him into Dynasty Warriors 3 and play on hard more with himb.
Empires All. The. Way.
There's something endearing about uniting China…I'm also a sucker for the Romance of the Three Kingdoms games (VII is my favorite).
IMO the franchise did well to create both of these versions, one which highlights the combat engine and one which highlights the strategic mechanics. I'll always be a strategy girl if you make me choose, though.
I really couldn't believe they actually went there. How could this not be a 10/10??
