Format: Paperback
To correct the reviewer down below: Dynasty Warriors 2 had an official strategy guide from Prima, and clearly they didn't learn from some of it's faults. Although this one is not in black and white, it does have a few problems like... the fact that what the guide spends so much time on is something that youw ouldn't buy the guide for. It's almost like buying a guide to Super Smash Brothers Melee. Why?

However, there are some moments when a guide to Dynasty Warriors 5 can be helpful. Things like finding the "Valueable Items" were particularly helpful, but at the same time a blur. The maps in the guide don't point out where to find the valueable item in question and force you to constantly look back to the mission log. If that's the case then GameFAQs works just as well as this guide. It tells, but doesn't accurately show.

The maps aren't that helpful either. They don't tell you where to find those nifty life ups and musou ups (some generals drop them, but they're also found in pots). They claim they are random, but if you play through the game constantly, you'll see that a pot with a Life Up +10 will always have a life up +10.

Another note about the maps, is that they're not detailed. It looks like someone paused the game, and took a picture of the map they saw on screen and then passed it off as a detailed map. They don't point things out.

Some info is also wrong. There are typos in the items list, and the description of how to get some "Valueable Items" is not always correct, nor is it always detailed.

It's almost as if Prima knew there wasn't much of a use for a Dynasty Warriors guide. What it IS useful to have it for though, they did include, however it isn't done very well. Screenshots were blurry; information misleading.

This is the first review I have ever written on amazon but I was really disappointed with this guide. I know it was also the first guide ever published for the Dynasty Warriors series and hopefully they will learn from the mistakes. Missing were specific locations of +10 and +20 items such as life and musou. They are not just random appearances and I was able to find them everytime in certain clay pots when I broke them. I found mistakes in the list of campaigns in musou mode for several characters and the info on how to get the fourth level weapon was not always correct. I also would have liked having markers on the map where the fourth weapon appears as a "valuable item" instead of having to scroll through the battle log in the game to find it. Also the maps for each campaign in general were very generic and did not add much to the understanding of where certain events occur in the game. When I played previous Dynasty Warriors games, I would check the free postings on different game sites and found them to be more descriptive then this guide.

A Kid's Review on October 23, 2005
Format: Paperback
Dynasty Warriors 5 has the biggest amount of characters ever in a Dynasty Warriors game. This is also a great game because each character has their own personalized story line. The graphics in this game are awesome. I would give this game a 4 out of 5 possible stars.
