Dynasty Warriors 2 (真・三國無双 Shin Sangoku Musou?) is the re-imagined sequel to Dynasty Warriors. It departed from the fighting game set up and to start the dynamic battlefield gameplay that is the series staple to this day.

To represent its creative change, the Asian title adds the Shin, which is roughly translated as "Real - Unparalleled in the Three Kingdoms". The Dynasty Warriors name was kept in the West, leading to the number discrepancies between the Western releases and Asian titles.

Being one of the first games released for the PlayStation 2, it was named Gamepro's best game of the week.
