Game description: The Romance of the Three Kingdoms comes to life in Dynasty Warriors 2. As a general in second-century China, you must lead your troops into epic battles against thousands of warriors. On horseback or on foot, you'll use various weapons and combo attacks to forge a path into enemy lines and scatter all who dare stand in your path. Strategic planning is key to victory, as enemies can attack from all sides and when you least expect it.

Game works great at 5X native resolution. Only problems was in cut-scenes where half the screen had multicolored vertical bars running through it and audio glitched out, fixed by simply going into the graphical settings and clicking "appply" to the GSdx plugin. Bios v 2.0 was used. Zrooney
