Seriously Underrated Fun!
Pros: Well if you've played other DW games, it's much the same as the other games. You run around as the character you choose, and kill as many guys as possible whilst still meeting goals. I didn't find the optional goals all that hard to achieve, but I have a long standing history with the series. Heavily updated graphics (KOEI uses anti aliasing in this one:D) and character models are very pleasing to the eyes. Dolby Digital sound never disappoints, and the music absolutely rules with Chinese tinged hard guitar BGM. The game can be challenging at times, on rare occasion I would run up to one of the more important enemies to fight them (and me possessing a full health bar) they would unleash a barrage of attacks killing me within 2 seconds. But once I learned the intricacies of the system and game it hasn't happened since.
Cons: The only major con that I find is in the voice acting. It is quite stale and flat, but this is a norm for the DW series so I bought this game already expecting that. It's not "bad" by any means, at times it's actually funny how corny the dialogue can be. As I stated above, until you actually learn the game system, how to heal and so on, it can be frustrating to get near the end of a 30 minute battle only to have a more major enemy unleash an unexpected hard combo on you and kill you within 2 seconds after only a few hits. It's a tad frustrating, but the overall game is well worth picking up.
Other Thoughts: No real other thoughts. I'm a longtime fan of the series so I figured I'd get it. I didn't bother with DW5 as it was more of an updated DW4, and I've already got that one on PS2, long since completed. My recommendation would be as follows: Like games that are all about just having a good time without a high amount of stress or reflex action like in all those FPS games out there? This one delivers tonnes of fun and many an hour of hacky/slashy good times. If you've been on the fence for a bit about whether or not to get it, take my advice and pick up your copy today. You shan't be disappointed!

Pros: Addictive gameplay; massive battles; looks great and sounds fine; nice replay value; buttom smasher with strategy. I especially love the option to co-op, and I sometimes feel it's necessary to co-op in certain situations.
Cons: Some frustrating fighting elements. Seems impossible to do most of the optional objectives.
Other Thoughts: One of the main negative most will hear about this game is the english voice over, which is expected. Any fan of Japanese products who doesn't speak Japanese should be used to this by now. And if it wasn't translated (just subtitles), people would just ignore the voice and not penalize this game on the voice acting. Deal with it.
