Press Y for "Yes," X for "No" 0

I had never played a proper entry in the murder marathon that is the Dynasty Warriors franchise before picking up its Legend of Zelda spin-off, but I had played enough of another of its branching titles, Mystic Heroes, to know that I had a fondness for the combat that is often ridiculed for its apparent lack of depth and mindlessness.
