Overall, Dynasty Warriors 6 is still more of the same. Offering little in the way of innovation, it will keep fans of the series very happy and is definitely an essential purchase if you have ever enjoyed a DW game in the past.
If you're a new guy, this is as good a game as any in the series to get into – they're all pretty inaccessible, but if you have the time and the patience you can learn and put-up with the series' little quirks. Of course, if you've disliked previous outings, this one will do very little to change your mind. And Jolt very much doubt the next one will, either.
