Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Dynasty Warriors 8 is about the Three Kingdoms + Jin Kingdom. A typical Dynasty Warriors game. You mash buttons to do combos to defeat thousands of soldiers like a super sayajin. Graphics and visuals are really good. The story is really good and interesting. Its a really easy game, but a little warning from me. It can make you addicted to it. To summarize: its a really good game, were you can play over 100 of hours.
Summary: Being a big fan of the series, I've looked forward to DW8 for some time. Koei has listened to the fans and produced the DW game yet. Killing the many peons feels much more satisfying than it was in 7 (similar to how it was in 4 and 5) but the overall gameplay has been updated from 7 to include 3 musou attacks for all characters, a rage system, more varied weapons, and much more. In addition, then new game mode keeps making one come back to play. Highly recommend.
Good addition to the series but not the best game in the series

Summary: This game is a good addition to the series, but definitely not the best. I would recommend purchasing Dynasty Warriors 6 instead (less than 1/2 the price). Weapon customization and graphics were significantly improved in this version. Important notes: Text was too small on the screen and it was difficult to read. Game play was fun but redundant (levels were repetitive). Price of game is fair. The game did not live up to my expectations after Dynasty Warriors 6..
Summary: As with many others, I am a huge fan of the dynasty warriors series, owning most of the games in the series. Where i was disappointed with DW7, I am much happier with DW8. These games are a blast, and a lot of fun to play Co-Op with someone else. There isn't a whole lot of complexity to it, making it fun for the casual/new gamer crowd. As with other reviews, the voice acting is pretty weak. But that does not take away from the game and the fun you will have.
