An admission that surely renders any of my future opinions on games obsolete, but i'm something of a dynasty warriors fan despite my own utter bemusement at how or why!! Needless to say, when KOEI gave their Canadian counterparts permission to do a western version I was all over it, the fact they chose Homer's Illiad as the setting only heightening my excitement having been fascinated with the story since i were a lad!
Somewhat unsurprisingly the gaming media hated it, Xbox World indeed giving it 45/100 if metacritic is to be believed along with the classic quote "In a genre overlaoded with turds this one floats to somewhere near the top of the pile.". Obviously any warriors game is destined to never receive higher than a 6 due to the nature of the repetitive combat, but anyone who's ever enjoyed any of the warriors games should consider checking it out. There's nothing overwhelmingly amazing and there are some frankly irritating boss fights as well as some grinding but i enjoyed it and if all else fails it's a reasonably easy 1000g
Funny how i can enjoy a festering turd of a game like this and then hate all over Deus Ex & LA Noire!?
@OXM guys, if you can control your excitement at the prospect of playing as Achilles i can lend you this in a week or so when im back in the UK to post - which address would i need to be using - Balcombe street?
And Maverick, i wish to god they'd actually called it that, nearly drowned my laptop with tea reading that
