A month before buying the game, I watched half of the first series just to gear up and understand the North Star universe. It left me very excited in wanting to try this title out. After playing it, I think this will be my last purchase of a Dynasty Warrior-esque game for a couple of reasons.
-If you’re a fan of the anime or manga series, it follows the storyline pretty closely. I was honestly surprised to see they included the young characters from the messed up world, like Bat and Lin. The translation from anime to game is perfect as well. After you perform a signature move, there’s a brief pause describing the move after your character executes it, much like in the anime.
-Dynasty Warriors w/ a Twist: Plays like Dynasty Warriors but has a hardcore feel to it. I don’t ever remember seeing a pirate explode in my edition of DW: Empires.
-You are already dead!
-Boredom and Repetitiveness: After you’ve gotten past Chapter 6, most of the landscape begins to look like the same maze over and over. The enemies aren’t any help either. If you’ve seen one guy with a club or axe, you bound to see 50 other clones about every 40 seconds. There are timed and sub-missions which might pop up sometimes and are quite fun. It helps you earn extras for that current mission, but even that gets old. Most of the Dynasty Warrior games I’ve played have always suffered from this.
- Boss Battles: All of the boss battles are the same. Though there is one with a horse o.O
Overall: It’s average at best. I love the concept. I love its likeness to the anime. I love the characters and English dub. I even love watching the heads of enemies blow up like a balloon until they go *pop*. But Stage 1 is no different than Stage 12. If you’re a fan of the anime/manga, it’s a great adaptation to check out. I wouldn’t see why Dynasty Warrior fans wouldn’t like this either. But honestly, it just gets boring. If you want to try a game similar to Dynasty Warriors with a hint of anime (and is way more entertaining), I recommend Sengoku Basara 3. At least that game isn’t already dead….
Yes. I went there….

I love Fist of the North Star. I remember watching the bootlegs on VHS and not understanding whats going on because it was in Japanese. I also like dynasty warriors games. After a long day at work, i like to unwind and totally destroy armies of dudes and having their head explode. This game kept me pretty entertain for the last 2 weeks. Played a level or 2 everyother day. After i beat it with Kenshiro, i kinda lost interest. Sure i can play it as Rei or Toki…. maybe i will play it again if i get bored during the winter. I didn’t mind the repitative nature of the game, because even when your grinding through levels you can upgrade your character. The only thing i didn’t like is how hard Roah was at the end.

This game is very enjoyable if you are a fan of the anime or manga. It has several modes and characters to choose from, and lots of cool moves you can do. People unfamiliar with the series may not like it as much but its still a fun beat-em-up.
