You know the usual spiel about how Dynasty Warriors is just repetitive button mashing with no depth?
Well, it isn’t true of this game either, but it is a lot closer to being the case. There isn’t enough depth to warrant how much you’d have to play to actually get everything. Mostly the problem is how the depth comes into the game, unlike Dynasty Warriors 7 where the depth is all about character development, weapon choice, what you equip your character with and of course, the character itself, and the permutations there of, in Ken’s Rage, not so much.

Well, this is certainly a Bioware RPG, and if you really, really like the Bioware games you’re going to absolutely love this game, you’ll probably declare it Game Of The Year 2010, even though it clearly won’t be.
Come on, it isn’t that good.
