Dynasty Warriors Next

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: If you build it, a Dynasty Warriors spin-off will come. This has been true of any game system released in the past few years, and Tecmo Koei has no intention of breaking tradition with the PlayStation Vita. Dynasty Warriors NEXT can't wait to get out of the door, releasing as a launch title for Sony's handheld system. Like most Vita launch titles, NEXT aims to show off what the Vita can do.

Dynasty Warriors Next review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Dynasty Warriors is a franchise that’s notorious, even infamous, for the predictable content of each of its titles. No matter what the number is next to the name, you can safely assume you’ll be playing the same basically unaltered package, and by now you probably know if you like that or not. That logic holds fairly true for the Vita launch game Dynasty Warriors Next, despite it possessing some new portable bells and whistles.
  • Pros: Tons of content, Gimmicky touch controls not off-putting, Looks great on the small screen
  • Cons: Exactly what you expect from Dynasty Warriors, Killing thousands of people feels like a chore, Recycles older DW games’ content

  • Excerpt: We recently recorded a series of podcasts about games that launched with the major consoles, and in doing so we talked about what might be the greatest pack-in game of all time. My immediate thought was of Super Mario World , but someone else quickly chimed in with " Tetris ." Here you have two strong contenders for the title, but also two very different approaches to video game design.

  • Excerpt: Often criticized for recycling the same gameplay concepts in each of its many installments, the long-running Dynasty Warriors series finally changes things up a bit for its PlayStation Vita debut. Don't misunderstand, Dynasty Warrior's Next still sticks to the same basic love-it-or-hate-it core combat that's had fans frantically hacking and slashing through thousands of nameless soldiers in previous entries. It does, however, have a few new ploys to execute.

  • Conclusion: If you hate Dynasty Warriors this likely won't convert you, but even casual fans of the series are going to find a ton of gameplay to digest here. It's nothing new, but what's here is as good as it's ever been.

  • Cons: Some tacked on Touch/Motion controls, Duels

Dynasty Warriors Next Review

23 February 2012
  • Summary: Poor touch controls and a lack of dedicated online multiplayer drag down an otherwise serviceable portable Dynasty Warriors game. Fans of the series will find things to like in Next, but the offering is mediocre at best.
  • Pros: Dual analog stick Dynasty Warriors gone portable. 'Nuff said., Cool online integration for Conquest Mode.
  • Cons: Small screen frequently feels overloaded., In-battle touch/motion minigames break the flow of the action and can't be turned off., Duels in particular don't work very well., No true online play
