"So, good idea, bad idea is this month's theme, and with the release of Dynasty Warriors 6 right around the corner, what could be better than me using this new article program as an excuse to fit more Koei love in? What's even better, I now get an opportunity to rant about how terrible Drakengard was. Believe me, I adore any such opportunity.
The subject I have chosen for this month's submission is how the underlying gameplay of Dynasty Warriors games is a good idea -- an action game that sees you as a lone soldier in a pitched battle -- and how every game that has attempted to rip the formula off has, thus far and sadly, been a very bad idea."
