I just don't get the style of it. Is it supposed to be a first person RPG or a third person one? Or does it keep changing view points?

It's primarily a first person RPG (as RPG as a game can become nowadays). Third person views are in cover and other actions, basically.

I'm not a huge fan of FP games tbh, so probably won't pick it up. Probably buy MK for 360 so I can online, then LA Noire, Red Dead and DW7 shall consist of my summer buys, maybe inFAMOUS2 if I get round to completing my good save on the first...
Hopefully I can get a job at some gaming related store too to save some moneys.

Does people even play Dynasty Warriors anymore?I've heard DW7 was similar to the older games of the series, which I like.Might get it when the price drop but seems like Gamestop is the only store selling it here and they rarely have price drop. ._.

Caesar WCWR is a huge fan of those games so he'll hopefully be able to humble you.

Have you tried Amazon?

DW7 plays more like 5, which I thought was weaker than 4 and definitely weaker than 6. It has some of the improvements that KOEI made to 6, such as water swimming, etc. KOEI removed the infinite Renbu combos for 7 and simplified the game further, taking out the jumping + strong attacks as well. Combat is a much slower affair, imo. I thought it was an inferior game to 6, but apparently, I'm in the minority, since a lot of DW fans disliked 6 for some reason. Oh well.

Story mode is stronger, though they removed Free mode and replaced it with a mode called Conquest mode, which I thought was just bull. Characters can equip different weapons this time, and each character has a different aptitude to a certain weapon, making them greater with that weapon than another character might be. Overall, it's DW5 with only middling improvements. I thought DW6 was a step forward for the franchise. This game, mechanically, is a step back, while storyline wise, it's a step forward, as you control different characters in each kingdom's Musou mode, while they also incorporate the later Jin dynasty, going past Wu Zhang plains finally.

I disliked 6 really compared to 4/5, which remain my favourites. 6 empires was a saving grace, but those games always tend to be, mainly because it lets me expand Dian Weis story beyond Wan Castle, something which this new conquest mode looks good for, but free mode going is a big no no. Speaking of Dian Wei, they gave him his axe back right? His ball and chain was bull. Two weapons sounds interesting and the introduction of Jin seems like the fresh bit of content we've been dying for. Jin was the first thing that sold me about this game tbh.

And as for the renbu system, I loved/hated it. Hated building up from the first level, since it was weak, but loved the infinite combos you could unleash, as well as the strong attacks growing in strength. I adored the original fighting system though so I probably won't complain it's been brought back. Though the removal of strong attacks is bad IMO.


Wait, they took out jumping? Seems a bit weird... What about on horses?

No, they removed jumping + strong attacks, not jumping and strong attacks. Confused? Remember when you would jump and press the upper button (Triangle for PS3, I forgot the 360 one), unleashing a strong attack from the air? They removed that, unless I'm getting the button layout confused, because they DID remove something when it comes to jumping and attacking. They did not remove jumping and actual strong attacks, however.

I definitely preferred 6's combat system. Definitely was a breath of fresh air and I loved building up the Renbu. I will miss it, which is why I don't like DW7 as much as 6.

As for Dian Wei and his axe, he can equip numerous weapons. Everyone can. His aptitudes, however, are the axe weapons and weapons similar to it.

Oh right, tbh that move I rarely used, very useful for clearing though if you were being clusterf*cked, so I'm not too sad I guess.

I suppose I can't pass judgement on the combat till I actually buy the game. Finish my final exams next friday, so I'll pick up that and probably something else that weekend.

And ah, I assumed the weapon thing was following more the idea of everyone having their own unique primary, with optional secondaries being equipped etc, that's probably what I'll do anyway.

How do they set out the whole Jin storyline? Do they essentially conquer Wei and replace them or is it a sort of 4 way battle for a bit?

Jin starts out as Wei, basically. You control Sima Yi for the first battles, but he and his family are basically a faction (Jin) within a greater dynasty (Wei). They still have support, but there are Wei loyalists, I suppose. Basically, support for the Sima clan starts to go sour as they're seen as threats to the Cao family. They conquer 'em from the inside and replace 'em later on.
