Parents, Dynasty Warriors 5 is about historical war. Surprisingly, there's no blood or limb dismemberment, but there is a lot of death and destruction (the game likes to refer to a kill as a KO). You need to weigh the cultural and historical value against the battlefield carnage before deciding if this is right for your child.
Fans of the Dynasty Warriors series know exactly what they are getting and chances are, they've already run and out and bought it before reading this review.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers should have no problems. There are no required audio cues, cinema scenes are sub-titled and battlefield progress reports displayed on screen and transcribed into a history feature that can be reviewed upon pausing the game.
Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.
Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers GameCritics.com his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that GameCritics.com will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
