Dynasty Warriors 6 struggles to keep up, but at least boasts a completely new game engine. The fog of Ancient China has lifted and it's now possible to wander the colourful battlefields without buildings popping up a few feet ahead. Also, when you're tossed into the air, it's often impossible to see the ground because it's so saturated with bad guys. Those enemies' spears really don't make a comfortable landing spot."
