"Over the past few years, Dynasty Warriors has carved itself into a particular video game niche and there are many that love its unchanging, hack-and-slash combat. However, it remains a franchise with a fairly small following in the UK and this latest title – which combines the series with an equally niche robot-based anime is unlikely to change that.
That said, though, there are likely to be some of you out there who are almost frothing at the chops thinking about the prospect of jumping into the cockpit of a massive Gundam (the robots) and blasting across the galaxy. Indeed, the opening cut scene is basically mecha porn, with laser guns zipping about and more metal on the screen than a season of Scrapheap Challenge. But from there, things take a turn for the worse."
