DW5 EMpires is going to have two player you will just need to unlock it, i think thats tight, unlike the last one where it was one player, i felt like i was missing something when playing it. It was good but i think this will be bteer, i hope this one has twice as more options for the CAW too.

I hope the AI from DW 4 Empires stays the same or is better in DW 5 Empires. The AI in DW4 Empires was very good, and a lot better than the AI in DW5.

Two players is good. I like that idea. Now you can have a good buddy to count on instead of computer controlled generals that do stupid things like leave the main base undefended.

You have to unlock 2 player mode? It better not be a ridiculous requirement!


Better than nothing. I don't think I will buy this, unless I hear nothing but truly amazing things. Too many games on the way that overshadow this one, for me.

I hope the voice acting is more consistent than it was in DW5:XL. Or if they're going to be inconsistent, at least make IMPROVEMENTS. Bring back Sun Ce's DW4 voice actor... THAT voice was AWESOME.

DW5 Empires just isn't selling itself enough for me to get it. I'd much rather spend my money on Samurai Warriors 2 than buy a game that hardly sounds any different than its predecessor. But then again, I don't think i've heard everything on this so i'm hoping for some hook that I missed.

I'm sure Empires will have all sorts of new entertaining gameplay aspects, but looking at the IGN videos right now, everything just looks exactly the same. :x

Okay, after reading more about it, my interest has moved from SW2 back to this. There just still seems to be so much I haven't heard about it. I'm wondering if Edit Mode is still in this, if its any different, and if you can import your characters from XL to it. Also curious if acquiring items and upgrading weapons will be different.
