Episode Summary

Dynasty Warriors 5, Kessen III, Dungeon Lords and more!
On tonight's episode of X-Play, we review Dynasty Warriors 5. There are two different philosophies when designing sequels to successful games. One approach is to use the first game as a springboard to try something new, something more ambitious, like recent entries in the Jak and Daxter or Grand Theft Auto franchises, which risks disappointing the target audience. The safe approach is to add more features without altering what made the original a success. Dynasty Warriors 5 falls into the latter category, which should be as surprising to fans as discovering puddles after a thunderstorm. While there is certainly more here to savor for those who love clanging steel for hours at a time, Dynasty Warriors 5 is a safe sequel that won’t lure in a new audience to the series. Of course, that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable to play.moreless
