Description

Play as one of nine generals in this action packed 3D fighting, combat strategy and simulation game based in the second century AD China. China is torn with internal civil conflict as the 400 year Han Dynasty comes to an end. Try and unite the country during the Yellow Turban wars.

You control a character, on foot and mounted on horse back, as you fight against thousands of enemies in a 3D world.

Screenshots

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.
Dynasty Warriors 2 PlayStation 2 Yellow Turbans? Oh well, so much for hoping Green Lantern will save the day. Before each battle, you'll be presented with a briefing, giving background information, tactical overview, and victory conditions.
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 Power up mugging. Enemy heroes are the most difficult opponents you'll come across, as they will heal themselves between attacks. Its worth it, however, as they have items that will permanently boost your stats.

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.
