About Judy

As WP's managing 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 5' (PS2) - Screens

by Judy on Feb. 2, 2005 @ 9:27 p.m. PST

Based on Luo Guanzhong's historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the Dynasty Warriors series of action games takes players back in time and onto the battlefields of Ancient China. In the games, players experience the thrill of fighting single-handedly against nearly endless legions of enemy soldiers in historical battles that shaped an empire.

With the largest cast of characters ever assembled, the biggest battlefields to conquer, plus an incredible array of new attacks, powerful weapons, smarter soldiers and tougher challenges, KOEI introduces the greatest Dynasty Warriors adventure of all time!

Features Part 1

  • New playable characters.
  • Enhanced battlefield stronghold system challenges your strategic decision-making in the midst of combat.
  • More characters per screen for an added challenge.
  • New fighting moves and attacks.
  • Reduced fog and improved draw distance to show more detailed backgrounds.

Live As a Hero

This will be the largest Dynasty Warriors game ever. All of the characters will have their own story, and the events will be viewed from the Warrior's own perspective. In comparison to the previous sequel, Dynasty Warriors 4, there were just four main storylines for the Wu, Shu, Wei and Unaligned forces. The game's main mode, Musou mode, includes brand new stories for all of the characters including one of the newest Dynasty Warriors, Cao Pi.

Enhanced Battlefield Stronghold System

The popular "battlefield stronghold system" that appeared in DW4: Empires has been upgraded and will be included in Dynasty Warriors 5. In this system, when a force secures a stronghold the number of enemy soldiers is reduced, and the securing force gains an advantage in battle. Dynasty Warriors 5 will introduce new types of strongholds with different characteristics. The soldiers in Dynasty Warriors 5 will respond to events more intelligently. If a stronghold is about to fall to an enemy, troops will respond to the crisis and close in on the stronghold.
