Warriors Orochi 1&2 are the best of the series in my opinion. Although I have pretty much liked all of Musou games I have tried. I found DW games rather boring because of the lack of moves, but DW7 is very good.

Sengoku Basara has some great characters, but only one combo/character + the fact that the maps are all about running to the boss and beating it kinda kills it.
Fist of the north star had the same peoblem with the levels. That game was all about the bosses. But every character had a shitload of specials so killing the small fry was fun too.

Samurai Warriors have the best system in them. Lots of characters with unique movesets and ~4 different combos keeps the game interesting. DWs have also lots of characters, but guys with same weapons have same moves so there are as many unique characters as there are unique weapons.
Unlike in Sengoku Basara, in SWs and DWs there are other losing conditions apart the "don't die" one. This means you can't just run for the boss so there is some tactical aspect in these games.

So Warriors Orochi is the best because: It is basically Samurai Warriors + the characters of Dynasty Warriors. Now if only they'd make one for PS3/XboX360

And to conclude the long rant: my favorites.
Wu with Zhou Tai, Sun Ce and Sun Shang Xiang
Oda army with Mitsuhide Akechi, Ranmaru Mori and Nene. Sakon Shima and Ginchiyo Tachibana are cool too
Masamune Date from Sengoku Basara

Slight bit of an interest in this series and was just wondering about people's thoughts on the recent Dynasty Warriors release that's come out.
Is 7 worth the money or would I again be disappointed like I was with 6 with how broken the actual game felt?

Character: Ma Chao ( in Dynasty Warriors 5 only, then switched to Kunoichi in Warriors Orochi)

No biased view intended.

It's a lot better than DW6. The best DW I have ever played. Gameplay has been fixed and the story is quite involving with the option of running around in the main camp and talk to people :D

If you're interested in the series, this is your best option. Although I still prefer Samurai Warriors, but this is the best DW has to offer and I liked it very much.

Sorry for necroing but..

DW8 is pretty fucking awesome. Ever since 5 Xtreme Legends DW went downhill imo. DW6 for the PS3 was a clusterfuck with a downgrade in characters, moves and weapons. Empires wasn't half bad but still not what DW used to be. Didn't catch up much on 7 but 8 is fucking amazing.

So many characters, so many weapons, Lu Bu's daughter(!!!) and DW8 Xtreme Legends is even on steam for 50 bucks and that's also where I found it again. Tbh, I was still sceptical so I pirated it first but good lord it's awesome. Mashing two buttons has never been that much fun. I tried both, playing with keyboard and controller and obviously it's more fun with the controller but totally playable with keyboard as well since you don't need to do any fancy combos.

So, for anyone who stopped playing DW for whatever reasons I would honestly recommend you to give DW8XL a chance. It is just as fun as DW 3 and 4, looks gorgeous, Lu Bu campaign mode and an ambition mode where you build your own small camp to the capital for the emperor.
