About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

'Dynasty Warriors 4: Empires' (PS2) - Screens

by Judy on July 19, 2004 @ 7:22 a.m. PDT

"Dynasty Warriors 4: Empires" introduces a new stage and strategy system to the series' frenetic battlefield action. In the new system, players begin the game with a map of Ancient China, divided into 24 different regions. Players start with one region, and then choose another region to invade. Next, officers will recommend a battle strategy, and then combat begins. Victory goes to the first warrior who unifies all 24 regions under a single kingdom.

Along with the three most influential kingdoms, DYNASTY WARRIORS 4: EMPIRES includes smaller kingdoms not seen in any previous Dynasty Warriors game. There are also new playable warriors and more officer abilities- from powerful new Charge attacks to taunting "Challenges."

Redesigned based on fan requests, the new Character Edit mode triples the number of character models and voices players can use to create their own
warrior, plus player-created warriors can use any weapon in the game.

The game's new VS Mode combines the furious multiplayer action of Dynasty Warriors 4's VS and Challenge Modes into one. In VS Mode, players can now
send attacking soldiers to the opposing player's screen by defeating enemies with a Musou attack.

Developed by KOEI's preeminent development team, Omega Force, DYNASTY WARRIORS 4: EMPIRES is an action-adventure game for 1-2 players, supports Dolby(R) Pro Logic(R)II sound, and is rated "T" (Teen- Violence, Mild Language) by the ESRB. DYNASTY WARRIORS 4: EMPIRES ships to North American stores in September 2004, with a retail price of only US$29.99. Gamers can pre-order the game now at ebgames.com, gamestop.com, amazon.com, and mediaplay.com.
