The first part of the Japanese game series Dynasty Warriors was released back in 1997 and now, 25 years later, the ninth is released: Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires. Personally, I have not played any of the previous parts of this musou game, so I will review it separately and as a new player, and not how it stands as a new part in a game series.
Take control of any General. Gather forces, raise money and go into battle to conquer or defend areas. It’s not always easy to keep your balance and watch out – if you get too mean it will backfire, with unforeseen consequences.
Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires is has so many different inputs, outputs and things to learn so the time to master the game is almost endless. You have lots of different characters to choose from and different areas to defend. Each section has lots of parameters that you need to master to get the best results. It is important not to click wrong, because then you might do something really nasty by mistake. I pressed wrong and managed to plunder all the farmers in the area on their assets. My rudeness meter quickly went up. Depending on how you govern, your area and the ability to bring in money and soldiers are affected.
