Dynasty Tactics 2 is a great example of how good a strategy game can be on the PlayStation 2. It's quite unlike any other game on the console (apart from Dynasty Tactics of course) and is a must for strategy fans.

Librarians, history majors, and dedicated war buffs have got to be in love with KOEI. As since the advent of the Nintendo Entertainment System there hasn't been a single videogame developer or publisher to give our past as much attention as it has. From Romance of the Three Kingdoms and Genghis Kahn to Uncharted Waters and Nobunaga's Ambition, KOEI has made a conscious effort to mix fact with fiction for a successful blend of strategy, documentation, and fun.

Alles, was die Qualität des Vorgängers ausmachte, findet sich auch in Dynasty Tactics 2: eine gute KI, schier unüberschaubare Kombo-Möglichkeiten für verheerende Angriffe und eine gute, wenn auch sparsam erzählte Story. Zudem gibt es neben einer gewaltigen Anzahl an neuen Einsatztaktiken eine deutlich aufgestockte Entscheidungsvielfalt zwischen den Schlachten, wodurch die PS2-Taktiker zusätzlich gefordert werden. Allerdings plagen den zweiten Taktik-Ableger der Dynasty Warriors auch ähnliche Probleme. Allen voran die Zielgruppe, die noch mehr als bei Teil 1 in absoluten Strategieprofis zu finden ist. Denn zum einen werden die sich von der immer noch recht spärlichen Grafik in den Taktikbildschirmen nicht abschrecken lassen und zum anderen können sich nur Hardcore-Strategen mit den anbietenden Möglichkeiten zurechtfinden, um die mitunter extrem harten Gegner zu knacken

It's an excellent strategy game that fans of the original will enjoy and that gives new players a chance to experience this highly original, entertaining, and complex style of gameplay.

While I happen to be a big FPS and RPG fan at heart, one series that I’ve always particularly enjoyed is Koei’s Dynasty Warriors since I played the first one on my PS2 system. Soon, I was even more impressed when they managed to take Dynasty Warriors and turn it into a good and enjoyable turn based strategy title called Dynasty Tactics. Well, Koei is celebrating 25 years in business, and has now released Dynasty Tactics 2 for the PS2 system. While it follows very similar in some areas to the original title, it also adds some good improvements that just make it a little more enjoyable.

Un soft riche et prenant, voilà ce qui caractérise le mieux Dynasty Tactics 2. En dehors des batailles vous jouissez d'une grande liberté de mouvements en créant votre armée, en enrôlant des officiers, en utilisant des espions et au coeur de la bataille le titre se révèle tout aussi complet et relativement simple d'accès. La PS2 Pal dispose de peu de jeux de stratégie, il serait dommage de passer à côté de ce titre plein de grandeur.

Even if you?ve already conquered ancient China with Dynasty Tactics, the second time?s the charm For most gamers, the words ?turn-based, grid-system strategy? either cause them to recoil into the deepest region of their ?happy place? or inspire a charge into glorious battle. Dynasty Tactics 2 is easily one of the stars of this strategy genre niche.

Dynasty Tactics 2 is, regardless of your position in the raging what's-a-sequel debate, a great strategy game. If you liked the original, there's more than enough here to justify the upgrade; if you didn't play the original, this is the one to start with.

Dynasty Tactics was one of my favorite games of 2002. Completing the evolutionary steps that Kessen and Kessen II had taken to make themselves into a solid franchise, Dynasty Tactics neatly took everything Koei had learned, and made it into one exceptionally fun and solid game.

Endast de ytterst få som har gett sig fan på att klara precis alla strategispel som finns i världen bör fundera på att köpa det här. Vi andra håller oss till Dynasty Warriors 4 på dynastifronten.
