Dynasty Warriors Series

Dynasty Warriors is Koei’s most popular game series. You play the role of a famous Chinese warrior from the Three Kingdoms period, fighting your way through legions of soldiers while defeating enemy officers, some quite a threat indeed, all to further your lord’s ambition to unify China. Gameplay isn’t very deep, but many truly enjoy it.
