Excellent review! Well written so it flows smoothly and has this sharp wit earned from DW familiarity. It is so refreshing to get a review from a DW player instead of DW hater - those closed-minded critics that begin with low expectations ("I didn't like it in the past so I'm sure I won't like this...")

I even chuckled at a few parts. Like this:
quote
Basically, think of Conquest as a distraction from Story Mode, a place to unwind and relax whenever you're tired of escorting Cao Cao's ego around China.
I give this review 5 Diao Chan's giant pink maracas out of 5.

Saikyo Mantis Cao Cao is probably all smug after stealing Liu Bei's mustache off his face -- in his sleep.
And he's still holding the guy's facial hair hostage somewhere.

I'm not personally a huge fan of the main Dynasty Warriors series anymore, haven't been since DW4 or DW5.
Still, it's pretty nice to see all these changes finally being made to better the franchise.
Now, if only they'd fix the co-op, bring back the old Yue Ying, and stop changing Xiahou Dun's hair (for the worse).

More excited for the inevitable release of DW7 Empires.
Always been a sucker for create-your-own characters and adventures.

That review is basically dead on. I don't think I noticed the escorting too much, though. It literally made me want to hang myself in Dynasty Warriors 6: Empires, so, relative to that, the hand-holding in this installment isn't nearly as bad.

'Everything else'-wise, great review!

Any comments on the actual gameplay? Specifically, the combo system and how they went back to the dial-a-combo.

It's the only thing making me hesitate from getting this game, I feel like I might have grown out of using the same 6 combos for X levels.

I, personally, had no problem with the Renbu system. But, now that its back, the charge chain system definitely feels more Dynasty Warriors.

What can I say....

It's a great review, actually a bunch of things said I have found, if not all while playing to be true. All topics covered, unbiased(on neither side) it was as a review should be.

Personally I like how he looks in DW7.The first DW I played was DW6,and he didn't look good in that IMO.

Yeah, everyone misses his DW3-5 look. Much more rugged. If you have the costumes, definitely check out DW5 look. He was actually one of the better characters in those games, too.

I actually think Dun is one of the few Warriors who haven't had their appearance screwed over in recent games. His DW7 hair is a bit odd, but still pretty cool I think. Some of the other Warriors on the other hand, well, they haven't "aged" so well.
