Screenshots

Dynasty Warriors 2 PlayStation 2 Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya... Every main hero will introduce themselves in battle prior to an engagement with you. Some, like Yuan Shao here, wear somewhat accurate armor, while others have highly decorative and fantastical designs.
Dynasty Warriors 2 PlayStation 2 Who is this Machiavelli? An original master of political treachery, Cao Cao is the leader of one of the kingdoms and eventually a playable character. From the intro video.
Dynasty Warriors 2 PlayStation 2 Tranquil Melody. Zhou Yu plays a tune before battle in the opening sequence. Filled with heavy rock music, this is one of the few peaceful moments in the soundtrack.
Dynasty Warriors 2 PlayStation 2 The Fleet Aflame. The game is only concerned with the land battles of the period, but the intro video does show a popular tactic of the time: setting tied up fleets afire.

Trivia

Warriors of Fate

Although a sequel to Dynasty Warriors, a PlayStation fighting game, and many of the characters have similar maneuvers (even though the controls as different), the gameplay of Dynasty Warriors 2 more closely resembles the arcade game known as Warriors of Fate in English speaking countries.

It is a 2-D side-scroller in which you run through levels defeating hordes of enemies, either from foot or horseback. Although fictional names were used for the land and the characters, the five heroes closely resemble the Five Tiger Generals of Shu, including Zhao Yun, Guan Yu, Zhang Fei, and Huang Zhong...all playable in Dynasty Warriors 2.
