Dynasty Warriors DS: Fighter's Battle review

  • Tense sudden-death feeling
  • Configuring your Battle Deck
  • The body count
  • Most battle maps are about the same
  • Most bosses fight about the same
  • There aren't many challenging fights

The best path through any battlefield is usually easy to determine, and although you'll have to kill a certain number of enemy soldiers before proceeding through each area, we never found the resistance strong enough to make soldier slaying anything more than a formality. That means we kept the attack button tapping, the run button pressed and hoped like hell for the freeze spell to show up on the roulette wheel of magic. The game is about trying to get through the simple fights just a bit faster than the other guy. We like that the other guy is a warlord with an infinite supply of loyal soldiers willing to die for him, but repetitive gameplay is a bit too much for us to bear.
