About this product
- Product InformationLuo Guanzhong's Romance of the Three Kingdoms is the base upon which KOEI has developed many of its acclaimed titles, including the action-oriented Dynasty Warriors series. Dynasty Warriors 3 continues this tradition, dropping the player into the middle of an epic conflict between the Wei, Wu, and Shu kingdoms of ancient China. An initially selectable cast of ten characters gives way to over 40 characters in total, the majority of which will need to be unlocked by completing the various game modes.
Essentially the same as Dynasty Warriors 2, this latest incarnation adds new moves, characters, and modes to the mix. Visceral combat is in abundance, with plenty of enemy grunts and generals to defeat. Basic combinations can be performed, but the incredibly powerful Musou moves can kill entire groups of enemies with little fuss. Bodyguards now grow in both experience and number depending on your proficiency in battle, and can be outfitted with different weapons as the need arises. Commands, such as attack and defend, can be issued to the bodyguards in the midst of battle. Horses and elephants can be mounted in combat and maneuvered around the battlefield; the former proves a speedy transport while the latter can be best likened to a tank, mowing down anything in its path.
Swarms of enemies take to the battlefield and much like the previous title, players can encounter hundreds of soldiers at a time. Additional items and weapons can be found in combat and put to good use against the seemingly endless tide of warriors. The Challenge mode presents a variety of seemingly impossible situations to the player, in both endurance and timed disciplines. A second player can join in the main action, allowing for a cooperative romp through the game's many missions. More competitive players can square off against each other in the periphery Versus mode.

3/5 for an aged game
The third installment of the Dynasty Warriors series is an improvement over the game before it, but a dated piece by today's technology and games.
The game has a more expanded character selection at the beginning, including Guan Yu, Liu Bei, and Sun Shang Xiang. I played a bit if Sun Shang Xiang's story mode, and found myself confused. The first battle had nothing to do with the "Romance of The Three Kingdoms" novel of which the games are based off of, and the second battle jumped straight to Chi Bi, which wasn't for another few years.
As for gameplay, its slow and confusing. The characters do not run, and your range is limited; your musou does not regenerate if you are low on health-which could be costly if you're up against Lu Bu. But compared to the first two games you have more dialogue between the characters.
Comparing to the first two games, it makes an attempt to follow the novel more closely; but is still a few years away from getting it right. Its not a bad game, but not one of my favorites
I give it a 3/5 for being dated for its time, but still make improvementsRead full review

Very good product!
I bought this item because I played the game at my cousin's house and I fell in love with it. E bay has very good deals so I decided to check here before anywhere. Fortunately it was the cheapest price of all which was good and easy for me. I like the game because it's very fun and addicting. Once you play this game you are officially attached even though it's a old game. The fact I dislike about this is the people who worked on it could of worked on the graphics a little. Considering it's a old game, it has fair graphics for that time. This product was the cheapest of all which I liked a lot. It saved me a lot of money.

Great Multiplayer Game!
This is a great for two people to play. I bought so that I could play it with my girlfriend since there is a dearth of good two-player games nowadays. The game is set in ancient China during the Three Kingdom Wars which was actually true. The big difference here is the heroes have supernatural powers and can clear fields if soldiers with just a couple of swings from their weapon. I recommend it for the multiplayer, great game!

Destiny Warriors 3 for PS2
The Destiny warriors games mix animated fighting with strategy and topped off with a little Chinese history. DW3 adds multiple players,better graphics and addition characters to previous DW2 game. This is a good game that can can be found at rather reasonable prices since there are several later versions already out. See if you like this one by itself and you can build characters and use in more advance/expanded versions of the Destiny Warrior saga.
