Dynasty Warriors 8
Great Summer this year
I have been an fan of Dynasty Warriors since their first game ever. And I got to say this latest game Dynasty Warriors 8 of their series could be the best one for their PS3 series.
What DW7 should have been!
I've bought every Dynasty Warriors game since the second one on PS2. I loved each game that was released on PS2. I felt that Dynasty Warriors 6 was okay but lost a lot of the appeal that made it a good game. Dynasty Warriors 7 was better, but again, lost much of what made Dynasty Warriors so much fun. Dynasty Warriors 7 included many good changes that made it better than the sixth game. Dynasty Warriors 8 is the best game on the PS3/360 generation hands down! It builds upon what DW7 introduced, and does it even better! Free mode is excellent and is good to have back for the first time since DW6. The Story Mode is absolutely awesome. I beat one story mode before I realized there was another possible storyline path featuring "what if" scenarios. I haven't even completed the entire game yet and I am estimating play time at around 20-30 hours. This game is fantastic. If you have ever enjoyed Dynasty Warriors, this is the best installment in years, and for those who have never played one, this is a great game to start!
Looking to be the best in the series
I've been keeping up with this entry since it was first shown. There are a good number of new characters for every kingdom and new weapons as many characters weapons have been decloned. The environments seem to be a bit more crisp and some of the new moves you can perform look amazing. I believe this is looking to be the best in the series. I can't wait to test that theory.
Best one in the series this generation
I remember when I bought my copy of DW 3 so many years ago. To this day I still get giddy when a new DW comes out. I was so giddy for DW 8. DW 7 was good and DW 8 just builds on the awesomeness. The decloned all the characters, so they all have different skills. DW 8, reminds me of playing DW 3 those many years ago. A must get for any Dynasty Warriors fan.
Thank the heavens.
Kept my toes and finger crossed for this to come over seas as soon as I heard about Japan getting it. Bring me my new Shu, Wei, and Jin characters!! Hope they include dlc outfits for the pre order of this.
Been a fan since Dynasty Warriors 1. I think they'll do really good on this one. I think there mixing it it with Dynasty Warriors 7 and Dynasty Warriors 5. So it should be really entertaining. Plus MASA did a good job on the BGM.
Very Good Game.
First of all...This is the best of all of the DW games in which the battlefields actually looks like war is going on.Although I think the graphics were better in DW 6.Ambition mode is probably the best addition,Because you can play as anyone and not a set person.Only thing this game lacks that was included in DW 4 and 5. there was an edit character mode.But the character design is the best I've ever seen in the entire series.I only hope that some of the things that make this a great game be included in Empires 8.Because some of the things that made 7 a good game ( The traps in the Stone Sentinal Maze)were left out of Empires 7.
Another Dynasty Warriors game, another great game!
This series is over 20 games strong and has several counterpart series like Samurai Warriors, Legends of Troy, and Warriors Orochi as examples. This is Koei's best game to date. I tried the series with 7 and loved it and now I am a huge TecmoKoei fan now. Koei made many improvements by removing clone character fighting styles, giving many diverse stages, and creating "what if" scenarios. So if you want to try this series maybe start with 7 and then 8 but the whole series is fun and finds ways to reinvent itself.
this installment of of this title me and son enjoy
me and my son really love playing this together and i love that u can take a diffrent route to the end and there are new caricters in the game.
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. but over all good game.
