REVIEW

                               Dynasty Warriors comes from Koei who has
                               traditionally made historically accurate
                               strategy titles rather than action games. While
                               this title has its share of historical accuracy,
                               mostly in the form of characters and their
                               preferred weapons, don't let it fool you - this

                               block, Dynasty Warriors has three separate moves. Players can block, parry,
                               or even redirect opponent's blows leaving them helplessly faced in the wrong
                               direction. These maneuvers are diffi
