Dynasty Warriors 3 – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Violence

For parents, Dynasty Warriors 3 is a mixed bag. On one hand, the game is close to being educational for its historic content. On the other hand, the game has body counts (to which the game refers meekly as Knockouts) that make even Hollywoods bloodiest seem sheepish in comparison. However, the violence isnt gratuitous in that there are no dismemberments or any body parts flying and surprisingly zero bloodletting. Dead bodies are also rather tidy in that they automatically disappear off the battlefield. If only you could say the same for all your childrens messes.

Fans of the fighting beat-em-up genre will truly appreciate Dynasty Warriors 3 as a title worthy of the next-generation label. The classic feel of the genre is maintained, but its also further evolved by increasing the amount on-screen enemies to new levels, adding strategic elements, and also including a attribute and weapons build-up system.

War and history buffs will find that there isnt as much strategy as a turned-based war sim, but in terms of putting players right in the thick of the action, Dynasty Warriors 3 is without equal.
