"With Dynasty Tactics 2's new Tactical Chain System, Gamers will have an almost unlimited number of war strategies at their disposal." said Amos Ip, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for KOEI Corporation. "Players can combine attacks with allied officers using the Combo and Linking Systems, but with the new Tactical Chain System, a single military unit can launch an awesome offensive employing a series of over ten attacks in a single turn."
New features also include more than twice as many offensive and defensive moves as the original game including "Fire Volley," "Entice" and "Melee." Lu Bu joins Cao Cao, Liu Bei, and Sun Ce with epic new adventures, multiple story branches and endings. Furthermore, the game's new Points Evaluation System grades a player's performance based on several criteria including: "complete defeats" and "number of tactics linkages." Players can also explore cities, villages, and tactics training camps. On the streets, you can meet the villagers, obtain items and receive instructions on employing rare tactics with devastating results.
The Dynasty Tactics series chronicles the turmoil that took place after the fall of China's Han Empire. The civil war that followed was a dagger into the heart of China. Bandits, warlords, and legions of mercenaries ravaged the once noble land and ripped the empire into three warring states. On those battlefields, the heroes of the Three Kingdoms were born.
When the original Dynasty Tactics was released last year, it reinvented the genre of Tactical Simulation and was honored by fans when the game won IGNPS2.com's Reader's Choice Award for Best Strategy Game of 2002.
