#7 Dynasty Warriors 7 (Koei)
No really. The Dynasty Warriors series has been chugging along for well over a decade now, and the formula remains exactly the same: everything from the wailing J-Rock soundtrack to the colourful cast of Chinese champions is exactly as you remember it. This sense of déjà vu caused the seventh game in the series to be completely ignored at the time of release.
Personally, we think it's the best re-imagining of Luo Guanzhong's Romance of the Three Kingdoms yet. Noteworthy improvements include the addition of the Jin Dynasty, animal allies that aid you in battle and an overhauled weapons system. If you're a fan of the series (or just like slaying thousands of lowly foot soldiers with your god-like strength), then Dynasty Warriors 7 is a worthy vassal for your kingdom.
