Ultimate Dynasty Warriors 4 Guide

The Ultimate Dynasty Warriors 4 Guide

Dynasty Warriors 4, possibly one of the longest and re-playable games in video game history. Dynasty Warriors 4 is the fourth installment of the Dynasty Warriors series by Koei and is available for both Xbox and PS2. And, as is the tradition of past Dynasty Warriors games, there are tons of un-lockable characters, levels, and items.
Since the general walk through of Dynasty Warriors 4 is quite simple (just defeat the objective enemy general before your general is defeated), this guide will cover how to obtain the secret characters, levels, and items instead.
