Summary: I chose a 4/5 because it was fun, has replay value, and overall is done well. I felt like on some early missions it had a bit of FPS lag from all the people and the animation around. That problem has plagued the series, but doesn't take away that much from such an awesome game!
Summary: Dynasty Warriors is adding some great gameplay elements, although I had a few changes that I had disliked when compared to Warriors Orochi 3. Likes: Great combo changes from 7. More characters, more fluid storyline. Stunning visuals/effects. Dislikes: Wish each character had more individualized attacks, than just one EX attack. Sima Zhao, and a few other characters had different combos (not particularly better) than the ones in WO3.
Summary: As someone who as either bought or played every Dynasty Warriors game since 3, this is probably the most fun of any of the main games in the series, though I generally prefer the Empires titles for their light strategy. Though keep in mind, this has the same poor writing, translation, and voice acting as every other Dynasty Warriors game. Summary: If you have enjoyed any of the Warriors games, this will be just as fun if not more so.
Summary: I didn't care much for 7. I like 8 more because you have more choice between characters when playing story mode (usually can chose between 3 characters), each character has their own unique ex weapon which means they all have their own move sets (though some are the same from 7), the hypothetical story routes are neat, and the ambition mode is better than the conquest mode from 7.
Summary: The Good: +A lot of gameplay tweaks and additions make it the most fun to play +A large variety of characters, weapons and abilities +Varied missions each complete with unique objectives +Lots of different story modes to play through +At the end of the day, the game is just a ton of fun, particularly with friends The Bad: -The voice acting is laughably bad -There's no narration at all with the events inbetween battles -A few slight performance issues get in the way ---...
Summary: The game play is great and with added features I found refreshing for a long time fan. I played this series since Dynast Warriors tactics. Amazing new characters that add a new twist to the tale.
Summary: The game is good (there is few glitches here and there) I would recommend you to buy it only if you don't own DW7 and you are a fan of this game. There is difference between the two, but it's not big enough to make you buy the two. I feel bad for this game, i played it since DW4 and KOEI just repeat the game over and over and over ...
Summary: If you are already a fan of the DW series, you will enjoy DW8. The storyline is presented well, keeping it interesting after all these years. The difficulty modes provide ample chances for beginners and veterans alike. The graphics are decent, but really not much of an improvement over the past entries in the series. The voice acting leaves a lot to be desired, I usually find myself listening to music instead of the game's audio during playing sessions.
Pros: Refined storyline, difficulty settings provide good challenge
Cons: Voice acting mediocre, graphics not much better than previous installments
Summary: Upgraded graphics, new weapons, keeps 3 special attacks from DW7, and more the only thing thats missing is EDIT MODE!!!! This needs to be brouth back without having to wait for another game to come out. May an add-on can be incorperated in? I dont know but its one thing to crush an army with an awesome chracter but its a whole nother story when your name is floating over their head ( makes it a little more intresting). Edit mode add-on would be a sell out for me.
Summary: I have been waiting forever for this game to come out and it finally got released today! Of course with each new title in the Dynasty Warriors series some things get better and some things don't but usually they get better with each new addition. Dynasty Warriors 8 really delivers! 1. Better landscapes 2. A wider range of weapons 3. A new weapon system 4. New designs of characters 5. New characters 6. A bigger story mode 7. Free mode is back 8.
