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.
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.
Summary: A favorite of mine. This one is just as awesome as the others in this series. There's lots more to do and the story modes just play for a lot longer. It took me 3 days to finish Wu (and I still have to unlock a few more characters) It's tough in a lot of ways but it's an all time favorite and this doesn't fall from how much I love the series.
