Shin Sanguko Musou 5 trailer

Shin Sangoku Musou 5 (Dynasty Warriors 6), whose Xbox 360 version has just been announced, has been unveiled a bit more via this first trailer. It seems as mindless as ever, but at least it looks a bit more like a game worthy of a PS3 or a 360 than Omega Force's previous titles.

Just implement a good physics engine and I'm in.

KOEI is one of the worst game developers ever IMO...

Woo, thanks! My flash playback makes the one on the site unwatchable.

Edit: Woah! Crazy new special moves, vastly improved draw distance and the ability to traverse new areas/levels, nice! Gundam sort of made Orochi seem a bit stuffy, but this is totally the real next step for the franchise.

Gmulis; the normal enemies are mostly just a "force" that you fight through. The real challenge is getting to the captains with enough life to not get raped by them. There are more challenging units later on, but mostly, you wouldn't want the basic enemies to be too tough.

It really is the Doom/Painkiller/Serious Sam mentality here with numbers instead of brains, and it's wild chaotic, hypnotic fun.

Dynasty Warrior games are fun! I only played a demo of DW 3 for PS2 and had a great time with it :D

Now the last thing I wait for before I'l decide to pick this up is CO-OP over the net and not just local.

Looks rubbish graphically at least. Still, Bladestorm is pretty interesting.

Agreed. It would be a tax on the hardware, but ragdolls (even just temporary ones. Say... 1 minute) would look friggin insane on a game like this.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Still very different. More like Diablo but the "game feel" is not as polished. Systems are more well designed, but I have to give it to Diablo when it comes to fit and finish. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GriftGFX: like divinity? Better or worse? Might be one i dust off the xbox for. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The economy is unique and will probably seem strange to new players.. but every system is cleverly tied together in PoE. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yes.. the passive skill tree is pretty insane. It has a healthy mix of rigid decision making in its passive tree and flexibility in the active skill system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Path of Exile is an endlessly playable action RPG and Pillars of Eternity is a turn-based single player game w/ a party system. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX No they are not.. they are both RPGs and they both have isometric cameras but that's where the similarities end. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I always confuse the PoE abbreviation with Pillars of Eternity. Are they even the same type of game? (6 Hours ago)
